Giveaway and thank you!!

Yes, I do collect just about everything!

As I mentioned earlier this week, I was overwhelmed by the fact that the followers of this blog hit the 50 mark while I was away on vacation. I would like to thank everyone for caring and for their support!! I never dreamed that blogging would give me such a feeling of being connected and encouraged!

So, I would like to celebrate this occasion with a giveaway! Please leave a comment (one per person, please) on this post, if you wish to enter. I have not made a decision of what the prize will be - I think this will be determined with the winner of the draw. I will select the winner on Thursday (just don't forget, I live in Europe, so Thursday will get here a few hours sooner for me than for you).

Thank you once again for your support, encouragement and caring! It means alot to me!
Good luck, everyone!

It is the miracle of blogland, support, encouragement and caring are what we all need as creators.

By the way, you didn't answer me about the glass of Lemoncello...

Congratulations Renate!!!

But then I'm sure most people are like me and once they find your blog and realize what am amazing Bloglandian you are they reture often! :) It's always a joy to come by for a visit!! :)

You do realize Kiddo that your follower's list only gives you an ever so limited idea of how many readers take great joy in reading your blog???? For many different reasons they chose to pretty much ignore the whole "follow thing" I think you would be very surprised & get a much truer idea of how many visit you by putting a blog counter on. They are ever so easy and it's rather fun to see how many visiters have stopped by. :) You are more then welcome to use mine to install one.

Have a wonderful Sunday and hopefully a bit of successful flea market hunting!! :)
Pattie ;)

Renate, I read your blog before I left on my vacation. We went to the beach too. I wanted to look for treasures but I forgot. I was to busy enjoying the sunset with my husband. That is where I found my treasure. Congratulations on the milestone. I enjoy reading your blog.
