Finally! My Blog Giveaway

Finally! My Blog Giveaway!

Some of you who visit me here often know that I have been the recipient of many blog giveaway's lately and meanwhile, I have been working toward mine and I felt it had to be worthwhile. I meant to have it at 200 followers and then 250 and now I am one away from 275 so here it finally is! I hope you like it and someone is able to give it a good home. It is one of my little chaise's in an allover blue foliage cotton print on white, a circular white wire table, one of my blue mophead hydrangea arrangements, a basket of our South Carolina peaches I made from poly clay, two little books and a blue toile pillow.

I so appreciate all of you who follow me and drop by to leave a comment and see what I am up to. Though I can't yet make mini's my full-time vocation, it is my avocation and I enjoy the friendships and awe-inspiring projects you all do. Thank you for the e-mails, phone calls, kind and encouraging comments here, Flickr and Facebook and thank you for accepting me and my little amateur efforst in your life! And to my new followers, I apologize for not welcoming you officially yet but I intend to soon.

Meanwhile, to be eligible to win my little giveaway, just be a follower and leave a comment on this post. I will have Joanna pick the winning name the week of our wedding anniversary, June 22, 2010. And thank you again for your friendship!

This collection is truly well worth waiting for Jody, every little thing just fabulous! Certainly nothing 'amateurish' about any of them. Please include me in the draw, and thanks for your generosity.

BTW it looks like you'd better start preparing for your 300 followers celebrations ;)

Oh Jody, this is an awe inspiring give away! I've loved your hydrangeas since I found you on flickr and your chaises are gorgeous. When I saw the blue chaise my heart did a little skip :) I so love blue!

Hi Jody! I've been trying ot find your new site, and so glad you left a comment! Made it easier to find you. I know, I know, I still need to change over your blog name too.......

I do love this chait, but I have to say I loved the yellow one with the pink trim, too! They are really pretty!

And while I was reading back, I came across that quilt! My Mom quilts, and so did my grandma...and I guess you could say I have made a few in my lifetime, too.....So I can see how exciting it is to have one that is so old....and so full of personality! Love it:)

Hello Jody, your minis are so wonderfull and delicate that I feel I should overcome my lack of confidence in English writing and send you my admiration of all your lovely creations. This is my first attempt in Giveaway's and I hope to be very lucky.

I live in Russia (Siberia) and have not many oppotunities to develop my miniskills because dollshouses are very unusual here. It looks like I'm the first dollhouse owner in my city ( 1,2 million people.

I'm very new in mini's (about a year) and just now I'm buiulding my first 4 store Victorian dollshouse and I have made some mini's by myself and ordered some basic items from London. Thanks to Internet I can get in touch with many wonderfull people worldwide and this gives me the grate inspiration. I

I would love the chance to get your very special things, this flowers and sofa are fabulous !

Please enter my name as I would be so happy to have these items in my first dollshouse.

Elena,
