Thank You Friends! And A Giveaway At Garden Of Daisies



Two things happened this weekend.  The last bit of snow melted and we are completely snow free for the first time since Christmas Eve!   YAY!!     I also hit a milestone here at Garden of Daisies, with my 100th follower.   WOW!  I don't really know how that happened, but it did.  

I want to say THANK YOU  to all of you who have followed my blog and made such kind and thoughful comments over these past few months!  I feel as though you are becoming treasured friends.    So, I thought I'd celebrate with my first giveaway.   Actually two little giveaways.




Little Giveaway #1:   Posy Garden
Vintage Green and Pink Daisy Hankie
 Little Victorian Floral Refrigerator Magnets
Sunflower Recipe Cards 
Waving Wheat - Oatmeal, Milk and Honey Soap


Little Giveaway #2:  Farm To Market
Large Canvas Shopping Bag With Fruit and Veggie Design (and fun food quotes on the back)
Sunflower Recipe Cards
Waving Wheat- Oatmeal, Milk and Honey Soap


Here is what you need to do to enter:
* Leave me a comment under this giveaway announcement post, or any other posts to my blog this week (between today, Monday Mar. 8 and  and Friday Mar. 12)  and let me know you want to be entered.   Tell me if you want only #1 (Posy Garden),  or  only #2 (Farm To Market),  or  both.  (If you do not specify, I will automatically enter you in both.)
*For an additional chance to win, you can mention my giveaway on your blog.   Please let me know if you do that.  (Yes, you may use pictures from this post to share info about the giveaway.)

That's it.  Simple!

I will draw the winning names on Saturday morning, March 13, so be sure to check back here.

*The giveaway is not limited to those in the USA.  I will mail to international blogging friends if they enter and win.   
*It is possible to win both #1 and #2.  I will not remove your name from the drawing for #2 just because you already have won #1.   
*You do not have to be a "follower" to win.  I do enjoy making new friends, but I don't want anyone to feel pressured to follow me.

(My mosaics this week were just the giveaways.  But you can see lots of fun creative mosaics over at Mary's.

  1. How lovely your giveaway is but first I want to say Congrats on your 101 followers. That's right I said 101 not 100 because I noticed I wasn't an official follower yet but am now!

    Well, since I'm having a hard time picking which giveaway I would like to win I am going to say both! Is that to greedy?

    Hugs,
    Joanne

  2. Congratulations on 100 followers! What sweet giveaways. I think I would like #1. Thank you for the opportunity to win. I wish you luck on your crocheting. Have you tried looking up videos on Youtube to see demonstrations? I think they might be helpful. Have a nice week! Twyla

  5. Everything is lovely, but I think I will opt out on the giveaway. I have won a couple of them and don't do them so would rather not be put in the drawing. Is that alright?
    I just wanted to pop over and thank you for your comments on my blog...you are such a sweet person and made me feel so much better. It can get stressful, can't it?

    I loved the story about your daughter and her friends. That is so commendable! You must be SO proud! :)
    Also..about your son and the stop sign. If there were horses in the road and he was trying to watch them closely and missed seeing the stop sign..personally I think the officer is an idiot..I DO. Ok, maybe not an idiot..but he could have been a little tiny bit more understanding. Under the circumstances you son should have gotten a warning..a stern one but a warning none the less, and been sent on his way. I'm glad he was watching the horses! Call me a push over if you like...but..that is my take on it.
    A bit of help from you for Spring break will be remembered for a long, long time. Am I getting old and soft? :) Probably.
    Love and hugs,
    Mona

  10. I noticed last evening that you'd reached your 100 followers and I was so tickled for you! The giveaways that you are doing to celebrate are really special. Since I don't like to make decisions, would you please enter me in both? Thanks so much! Glad to hear that your snow is all melted. Ours is going, but still not down to measuring by inches yet. The next several days are to be quite warm for us for this time of year...and rain is on the way...so hopefully by the weekend we will just be dealing with mud instead of snow and ice.

  35. Oh, Gayle, what a treat to find your comment today! I'm impressed by what an influence the German couple had on your life...and then on to your son. My youngest brother started taking German in high school, but think he only made it through one semester. I would love to learn the language...but I'm afraid for me it will more than likely be one word or phrase at a time from a new German friend. Do you still speak German with your son?

    I also just wanted to tell you how blessed I am by the way you and your husband have honored your ancestry, both Irish and German, to the point that it has influenced your children to the degree it has....your daughter with her love of Irish dancing and your son with his minoring in German in university. It is so refreshing to see young people today being proud of their ancestry.

    Hugs to you!
