Give Away and 100th Post

I started blogging last August.   I'm not a very technical person, but I started following blogs and thought "I can do this too".

I have found blogging to be inspiring in so many ways .... it incents me to keep going on my list of to do's;  it's a log of all I've done in the past year; and the people I have met on-line are wonderful ..... full of suggestions, encouragement and ideas.

I'm never going to be one of the 'big' bloggers, but the thrill of just one comment keeps me going.

Here's my list for happy blogging:

1.  Show lots of pictures ... that's what I look for when I check out other blogs.
2.  Make comments when you visit a blog .... I love getting them so I am sure others do too.
3.  Only make constructive comments ... it's amazing some of the comments I've read .... why be mean?   There is a reason your Mother always said "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all"
4.  When you find a blog you like, check out the list of blogs they follow... they probably have the same aesthetic, and you'll like it too.

So THANKS for all your comments ... I'll be dropping in on your site soon ... so feel free to visit whenever you can.


In celebration of my 100th post, I'm having a give away!

I found these cute blue grey bowls with dots.    I LOVE polke dots.  If you would like to win them, leave me a comment (one per person) and I'll let you know who won on Thursday.

Shipping only to Canada and the continental US.
