I've given a lot of thought to having a giveaway and mentioned a few weeks ago that I'd like to have one. Many of the bloggers that do this have an item donated to them to promote a company while others have bought or made some things themselves.
I chose to buy a few small items, things that I like and hope others would too. My reason for the giveaway? Simply to celebrate new friends I've made through blogging. It is rewarding to find women that have the same likes as yourself, chat and show each other our homes and gardens.
I'm not having my giveaway to get new followers, as a matter of fact, the only bloggers eligible for the giveaway are those already following as of right now. (106) I've become a follower of many blogs myself that I don't actually follow any more because when you start blogging you kind of book mark them that way. Now I find that I don't visit as many and have narrowed my favourites down considerably.
So, if you do visit my blog regularly you'll know I'm having this giveaway and if you like the gift I'm offering, leave a comment but on this post only. Your name will go in a bowl for a chance to win and I'll have hubby pull one out on Sunday. It's that simple. Oh yes, because of the cost of postage I must state that I will only be mailing within Canada or to the US.
Thank you all for your friendship and kind words.
