100th Post and a Giveaway ~

Today is my 100th post! It is amazing how time flies and how much fun I have had with this blog. It has truly been one of the most gratifying things I have done for myself in a long time. To thank all of you for your support, encouraging comments and for making this so enjoyable - I am having my first giveaway!

In September, I featured one of my favorite local shops - Heartland Interiors (they just started a blog for their store, go check them out). They have a beautiful store with an amazing design center. You can check out this post to see some of their gorgeous displays. They have been gracious enough to supply me with a few amazing items for my giveaway.

And for the goodies: A Bougainvillea candle in the Holiday scent - it smells fabulous! These candles are hand poured with essential oils in the U.S. by a non-profit organization. There is an adorable crown with rhinestones candle topper that is sold separately and can be used over and over again on different candles. And a super cute gold crown (are you seeing a theme here?). This would be great as an ornament or even just a little decorative accent - you could even add a few jewels to it to "bling" it up a bit. I have also included a pack of my greeting cards. These will be available on Etsy this week. There are 12 cards with envelopes (6 lion door knockers and 6 fleur-de-lis door knockers). All cards are blank inside for you own special message.

In addition to these loving items, I am going to also giveaway a $30 Amazon gift card. I absolutely LOVE Amazon - yes, Amazon if you can hear me, you are one of my favorites!


** THIS GIVEWAY HAS ENDED **

Here are the rules:
Just leave me a comment on this post - it is that easy (please make sure if you don't have a blog to leave me your email). AND you can do either or both of the following for additional entries:

* Become a follower and let me know in a separate comment.
* Post about this giveaway on your blog, link back here and leave a separate comment.

That is up to three entries! The giveaway will run through Saturday November 7, 2009 (midnight) and the winner will be announced Monday November 9, 2009!

Good Luck and thank you for making this so much fun!
