100th Post and 5000th Hit Thank You Give Away

Celebrate!

I would never have believed when I decided that I would begin a blog this year, that in three months I would have written 100 posts, gathered almost 100 followers, and had 5000 hits to my site!

I also would never have believed that in such a short time, I've met so very many remarkable people who are passionate about their art, their vintage and antique treasures, their desire to create a home of beauty and grace, and their support and encouragement of others.

It would be impossible to name all the people who I have started to look forward to reading about their days, or about their latest good read, or about the terrific finds they've made either in brick and mortar shops or online boutiques. I must admit, my favorite thing has been to see the plethora of photos of artists' work...I've been entranced, amused, humbled, and awed by so much of what I feel lucky to have not only seen, but privileged to have met the creators... for a somewhat-of-a-social-butterfly like me, that's a really important part of art - knowing the person who is responsible for it.

So, to thank all of you who have helped to make my blogging experience so exciting, I would like to offer a giveaway contest. The winner will receive this fabulous and inspirational book by Lisa Kettell, Altered Art Circus.

It's one of the most enchanting and clever books dealing with altered art that I've seen. I love my well-worn copy - and know that the winner will love it, too! Well, they'll love their new copy - they can't have my well-worn copy! Lisa also is the proprietress of Faery Enchantment and The Carnival Soiree - be sure to visit her delightful sites - lots of ideas, inspiration, and art!

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and you're entered! You don't have to have a blog, but if you don't, be sure to let me know how to contact you if you win! If you are a blogger and you choose to post on your blog about my giveaway with the above button linking back here, I will enter your name three times into the generator.

I will announce the winner on Wednesday, April 15. I'm not going to make a specific time, as I get the time zones mixed up - and I don't want to make myself feel pressured LOL. So at some point that day, I'll announce the winner.

Again, thanks for all who have welcomed me so warmly into Bloglandia!
