{ I'm having a giveaway! }

I've been blogging for several years, and in the past, I have had a few giveaways for certain milestones...100, 200 posts, blog-o-versaries, etc.When we moved, back in March, I took a nearly 6 month hiatus from my blog. When I came back, I changed the name of my blog, changed the entire 'theme' of my blog, and was pleasantly surprised when I was welcomed back with open arms and enthusiasm!! Well, I missed my 300th post, AND my 2 year blog-o-versary.....SOOO, I have decided to have a "Just Because" giveaway as a huge Thank You to all of my new followers and all of the bloggers who have left such sweet comments on my posts day in - day out.

To make this giveaway special, I have decided that it is going to be a SURPRISE giveaway. I'm not going to tell you what's in it. Suffice it to say, I have been collecting pretty much daily...there are now 11 items set aside for the lucky winner, and I'm not through adding yet!!

All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post telling me how you found my blog (if you remember, that is. I know how easy it is to get 'lost' blog hopping!!) You don't need to become a 'follower', but you can if you want :-) If you post about the giveaway the get a second entry, and if you put my giveaway button on your sidebar, you get another one. Each entry MUST be a separate comment in order for the random number generator to work effectively!

This giveaway is open to ALL bloggers, regardless of which continent you live on! I'll ship anywhere :-)

You have until Halloween night, October 31st at midnight to sign-up. Please do! And tell all of your friends about it!!! I will pick a winner November 1st. I'm so excited to be doing this for all my old and new friends!

You can find my giveaway button on my sidebar complete with html for you to copy!

Lovies to you all!!!


  1. I honestly don't remember! Somehow through Google....


  2. I think you found me...I think...not sure...do you remember?
    Can't wait to see what you are tucking away and who wins- won't be me- I never win!

    Hugs- Tete

  6. Hello ~ That's a very good question. I think I found you through a comment you left on a mutual blog that we were both following! With a click of my mouse, here we are now! Love your idea of a 'surprise' giveaway. Once I figure out how ... I will add your button to my blog! Have a great weekend.

  7. I think you giveaway idea is such a great idea, i think it was via blogs,im already a follower i enjoy your posts a lot. Fingers crossed :)


  8. I found you because you were nice enough to leave me a comment. We use to live in Oregon, but we were in the Valley & couldn't take the rain anymore. Just looking at your blog for the first time, but it looks delightful. I'm a very new blogger but having a blast! Stop over any time.

  9. I found your blog through your comment on Mockingbird Hill Cottage. Welcome back to blogging. Your giveaway sounds fun!

  10. I don't remember how I found you...just that your blog is charming! What fun! A surprise! I love it! karen....

  11. Wow! Sweetie... Its so generous of you!
    Its nice that you aren`t telling us, what the prize is... as I love surprises!
    I can`t remember how I found you. I`m sorry!
    I will be adding your give-away button to my blog.
    Speak to you soon!


  12. Now, doesn't that sound like a fun giveaway... I truly LOVE surprises, so this would be right up my alley.. :-)\

    I found your blog because you came to visit me... Nothing like a little teatime in Bloggyville!

    We didn't spend much time in Redmond... It was actually on our plan, but we came home two days early....that darn bed was soooo uncomfortable we couldn't handle it for one more night......so we missed our Redmond day. One of the KINDEST employees EVER helped me out at the Redmond Fred Meyer several years ago. I was QUITE impressed.

    Yep, darn parking police..... I'm hoping for at least a reduction. We'll see. Now that I've complained all over Bloggyville, that doesn't seem likely.

    Warm hugs,

  13. Hi Lori,
    Thanks for visiting me and Sweet Pea!
    I don't remember at all how I found your blog...maybe you found me first and then I found you?!

    Off to the airport to pick up one of the gals.
