Today marks my one year blogging Anniversary. I've learned so much in just one year, so many friends I've made that I couldn't possibly have met otherwise. As I thought about what I would write about today, so much comes to mind. As I looked around, I seem to see signs that marked my Anniversary. I received a beautiful plant from a co-worker, totally unexpected. Then, when I opened my mail box today, there was the glorious re-introductory magazine, Victoria. I couldn't have asked for a better gift and I've already started to devour every page. Felt just like my favorite magazine was never out of print. I'm kept all my old issues and love looking at them over and over for ideas. When I saw this picture in Victoria, I couldn't stop staring at the beauty of it.
While I was walking down my drive I noticed a beautiful white rose on my rose bush was finally starting to bud; it hadn't bloomed all year and now that the season is about to end it finally decides to bloom.
While I was watching one of my favorite cooking shows today, Barefoot Contessa, she was featuring an Anniversary show!!
What comes to mind when you think of an Anniversary; a moment in time that marks an event. A special day to celebrate something special, a wedding, a new friendship, a job, starting a new adventure... I can't believe a year has passed.
I just want to thank you all, that have stopped to say hello, that have left such wonderful comments, an encouraging word when I needed it, visited with me at my shows, or just emailed to let me know you found my blog. So, to mark my Anniversary and to say Thank You, I've having my first give away. The picture below shows what you will receive. A glass house with a rooster on top, a nest, and vintage Christmas ball with vintage white buttons.
