It is a truth universally acknowledged that a rainy day becomes much cheerier when one is in possession of a turquoise umbrella.

One Hundred Posts...and a Giveaway!

Whoop! Whoop! That's right...in about the span of almost three years of blogging, I have finally reached my 100th post.

One hundred posts. Wow. :)

I have had so much fun in the (almost) three years of having my own blog (despite my sporadic posting) and have made many wonderful friends. I count so many of you as my dearest and best friends...you know who you are and I just want to take a little moment to say I love y'all and that I have been absolutely blessed in knowing you. Thank you for letting me be your friend. :)

So, in honor of all this, I decided it would be fun to host my first blog giveaway. Sound fun? Okay, here we go!

First up, one lovely winner will receive:

1. Pink Donut Charm Bracelet

 
Because who doesn't love a donut? 

This was created by the wonderful Etsy seller, janetsaw. Isn't it just presh? Her shop has me torn between squealing over the cuteness of the items and wanting to make a run to Dunkin Donuts (seriously, her tiny dessert items look like the real thing--only miniaturized). :)



2. Antique Silver Miniature Camera Pendant Necklace



Can I hear a simultaneous "Awww?"

This was created by the equally wonderful Etsy seller, morikaty, and I think it is just amazing (as is the rest of her awesome shop!) If you're a photographer, then this would definitely be a darling item to add to your jewelry collection. In fact, I want it.  Ahem, I mean, I want you to have it. ;) 

How to Enter:

Mandatory Entry: 

1. Leave a comment that answers this question:

"What is your favorite part about spring?"


Additional Entries: 
(Please leave a SINGLE comment for each entry that you do, so that I can count it!) :)                                                                                                                                                 
1. Follow my blog (or just let me know if you already do)

2. Do a blog post about this giveaway

3. Post a Facebook status with a link to this giveaway

4. Tweet a link to this giveaway on your Twitter

Okay, so that's a total of FIVE possible entries with a chance to win one of the two items in my giveaway (in the unlikely case of drawing the same entrant twice, I will simply draw again. :)

This giveaway will end March 9th, 2011 at 11:59 P.M.

I hope you enter! :)

Sarah Grace said...

I love that camera necklace ! It's adorable :)

Bailey said...

Congrats! Should I be happier for you or me - the chance to win such cuteness? Can't decide.

Spring...I love running around in the mud, barefooted, short-sleeved and shouting to the world, "WINTER'S OVER!" through chattering teeth. Not to mention the knee deep mud puddle.

Bailey said...

And I follow you. Of course. =)

My favorite part of spring: the snow starts to melt, and it gets WARM!

Kara said...

I LOVE the camera necklace!

Bethany said...

I think we all agree (all as meaning me, myself, and I) that the best part about spring is the snow is gone. All of it. Usually. Except the time we had an Easter egg hunt in snow.

Minus the sarcasticness, the second best part about spring is our "orchard" is bursting with blossom (minus the sumacs, may their dead branches lay in peace :: pun not intended)
Especially the bee infested wild cherry trees - they smell heavenly.

Bethany said...

I've been following... ;)

I love this giveaway. I am totally in love with donuts and totally in love with cameras AND totally in love with jewelry that includes either. ;-)

My favorite part of spring is, hands down, the pink cherry blossoms that smell like heaven and are absolutely beautiful. I wait impatiently every year for them to come out. :)

Spring? I love the days when it's shiveringly cold, but using the sun shining as an excuse to wear sandals :) . . .

Joanna said...

The breeze! seeing everything move in the breeze and feel it on your face. Not like a cold winter wind, but soft. Very fairytaleish, if that is a word. ;-)

Joni said...

Hmm... favorite thing about spring is probably just being OUTSIDE.
Constantly. No worries about being too cold, just put on some sun screen, pack a snack and catch some rays! Or some stardust. Just lay back in the soft green grass and watch the twinkling sky... *sigh* :)
Can't wait.

I guess I didn't really give you ONE thing...

Betsy said...

I love the great weather in the spring! It's not to cold or hot and it's great for playing outside!
