One Year Ago

Welcome Friends!
I can't believe it was one year ago today that I started
my blog. Time goes by so quickly these days.
Thank you very much to all of my friends in blog land.
It has been a wonderful experience and I'm grateful to each and
every one of you for your kind words and support this past year.
You all are the best!
1. Leave me comment here on this post/ 1 Entry
2. Become a Follower/ 2 Entries
I would love to get to know you better!
3. Mention this on your blog / 3 Entries
Good Luck!
I wish I had a gift for each of you. You all deserve it.
I will choose the winner on Thursday evening. Here are all the items you will win.
I had fun shopping for you!
Another view of everything!
A pretty and colorful rooster platter!
Look at the acorns and sunflowers on it.
With all of the rooster fans I thought you might like it!
A matching rooster mug.
Three cloth dish towels in harvest colors.
Leaf spreaders for cheese and dips for Thanksgiving.
A red Colonial candle in a cranberry mint flavor.
It smells delicious!
A chocolate brown harvest leaf table runner.
How lovely for your Thanksgiving table!
A Welcome acorn for a cute Thanksgiving vignette.
A book of recipes on chocolate and desserts.
Just in time for the holidays ahead.
A bag of dark chocolate truffles. Mmmm...yummy!
Do you remember this?
It's a vinyl sticker that I ordered from Lynette's LAM Blog.
She has graciously donated one from her fabulous Etsy shop to
give away here. It is pictured in the ribbon topped gift bag.
Thank you for your generosity Lynette!
Wouldn't you love to have one for a door in your home?
This is shown on our garage door leading inside.
Please visit her blog and view her shop.

Thanks for visiting and here's to many more!

Wow! Congrats on your year of blogging. Look at all you've accomplished. I posted my very first post on Nov.16,'08, just 16 days after you started. It's been a great year for me meeting talented women, such as yourself. Your giveaway looks awesome, but the best gift is you, sharing your dreams and talents with all of us!

What a lovely, generous give a way Melissa. Can you believe how time has flown. It seems that alot of us started our blogs at about the same time. I know that Debbie (at Plate Addict) encouraged me to start mine. And I think alot of us got our feet wet (so to speak) at RMS. It really has been wonderful getting a glimpse of your life and your beautiful home. Kathy

Hi Melissa,

You are extremely talented and I have really enjoyed following your blog. In fact, you are the reason I decided to start one of my own. Congrats on your 1 year anniversary of blogging. I honestly think you deserve an award because you are such a sweet and genuine person and you have inspired so many of us. So, with that said ---thank you! =)

Hugs and Love,

Liz

Thanks for sharing your gifts with us!

Happy first blog anniversary! :)

You didn't mention if it's okay to be included in your generous giveaway if one lives somewhere else than the USA. Well, if that's a no no, please simply delete this comment, okay?

Greetings from Munich,
Birgit

Julie said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. I meant to ask you before - what is the color on the wall in your family room? If you don't remember, could you send me a better picture? I've been trying to decide on a color for ours that will go with our couch and from the tiny picture it looks like it would work. The green we ended up with looks too minty in certain light.

Thanks!
