It’s My 800th Post! It’s Giveaway Time!

This giveaway is now closed.


I can’t believe I’ve actually written 800 posts on this blog. That’s crazy. And there are a few of you who have read quite a few of those 800 posts and you’ve stuck around.
Thank You!
So what does one do when one has written 800 posts?  They have a giveaway celebrating  their blog and you, the faithful readers, my friends.
What does one give away? Well I decided to give away a few of my favorite things!
If you’ve been to my blog more than a few times you probably already know what most of those things are, but in case you don’t here’s a picture of what I’m giving away.

I love so many things but here a just a few that I could fit in a box.
IMG_00181. Snickers (My FAVORITE candy bar)
IMG_00222. Christmas (I’m giving away my homemade felt star to hang on your tree at Christmas time.)
3. Tea Cups (I love colleting tea cups and reading tea books, so here is a little tea book just for you!)
IMG_00244.  Candles (I love the smell of a good candle. It just makes me happy!)IMG_0021
