600 Posts and a giveaway!

Goodness, tomorrow is October 1st?! Where has September gone?!
I have sadly neglected my little corner of the world. Busy, busy with lots of changes, projects and just life in general.
And guess what? This is my 600th post!  Who would have thought when I began blogging wayyyy back on 2007, that it would go this far?  So, with Autumn in full swing, and 600 posts under my belt, I feel the need for a giveaway. A thank you for the comments, advice, gifts, and encouragement you have all added to my life over the last 4+ years. 

So here's what I am giving away
I saw this gorgeous book the other day and had to have it. I'm getting you a copy too because I know you all love decorating. It's brand new and full of beautiful romantic country style.
All you have to do to enter the drawing is leave a comment. That's all!
On the other hand, if you want an extra entry, post the giveaway on your blog and come back and let me know, I'll throw in an extra entry for you:>)
The giveaway will end October 15, and I will announce the winner Oct. 16th
Thanks for sticking by me and for all your kind words and friendship.
Happy Autumn!

  64. Penny I came over from another blog to see your lovely mantle; especially the items on the (right of my screen) of your mantle. They look the three of them are simeple, rich and perfectly warm the area.

    Then I noticed your giveaway for you 600th blog. My daughter moved form the Pacific coast to the East Coast of Canada and blogging was quite new and she began as a simple way of keeping in touch with family and if it hadn't been for this event I probably would not be looking at all you wonderful ladies homes which I truly enjoy. I do not blog but enjoy this method of relaxation.
    Email is the only game in town pour moi, n'est-ce pas?

    You said 'book' and my eyes darted to see what kind as I love, love books and home decorating books are 'simple pleasures' to enjoy.

    With gratitude,
    Sylvia Faye
