Royal Giveaway

Hello Friends!
It's time for my first giveaway!
It's my 21st post and today's date is 2-1.
It's also my 3 month blog anniversary.
Thank you to all of you for supporting my blog.
I know decorative crowns are very popular.
I thought I would give away the gold crown
I had recently purchased at Marshalls.
Just leave me a comment on this post.
I'll draw the winner next weekend and
then ship it to you in time for Valentines Day.
Here is the gold crown. It will soon have a new home.
Thanks for entering!

"Blossom" said...

Melissa, thank you for stopping by. I haven't been up to much; had epideral injections in my lower back yesterday at the hospital. I am in pain still this moring and had a rough nite last nite. I am laying flat trying to blog a little this morning waiting for the pain medicine to kick in.
They say the injection should kick in in 3 -5 days. I have been off work for 9 days. Hope all is well with you.

Darlene - Our Creative Life said...

Hi Melissa,

I would love to add the crown to my christmas decor.

To answer your question about what movies I was in...well it's been so many years that I don't remember all the names of the movies but the one's I can remember is:

An episode of Cagney and Lacey, Georgia County Lockup (I actually never saw that one) a old show called "What's Hot, What's Not" and I played a nurse in one made for tv movie, but can't remember the name. I do remember I worked with Jennifer Jason Leigh.
