I've been doing this for one year today! In that time, I've written 322 to posts. The only thing that has saved you all from more posts is the fact that I started more blogs and I started writing for Suite101.

To celebrate my blogiversary, I am going to have a drawing. Next week Wednesday, I will draw three names from our small stainless steel mixing bowl (maybe I will have each of the other members of my family draw one name - that would equal three).

One person will receive this button bouquet:

One person will receive a yet to be made hanky angel (something like these):

One person will receive a wind spinner (yet to be made and possibly featuring buttons):

Just leave a comment!


  1. Congratulations on your Blogiversary!

  2. Congratulations!!! How fun!
    I would love to enter your drawing.

    BTW, good point about finding out where you've come from. I'm going to have to ask in our next session how that is included in the process.

  3. Happy Blogiversary!! :o) It's amazing how the time (and posts) just speed by! ;o)

  4. Those are all lovely items. Congratulations on your one year milestone!

  5. Happy Blogiversary!

    I truly find great enjoyment here.

  6. Happy Blogiversary!!! It's always fun to check in here - your photos are so amazing, and I love the things you write about.

    The post above this one about the music you and your daughters enjoy was a fun read. One of my sons always sang in the shower - I loved that!! One time our older son was going to a concert - and I recognized the name of the warm-up band. We argued - I was sure the warm-up was the main show. Pretty much showed my age there!!! I love when our music choices merge from time to time. Music is really a universal language.

  7. Congratulations on your blogiversary and thank you for all the wonderful photos and inspiration you have shared.

    I love buttons - all these give-aways are gorgeous.

  8. Catching up and only just spotted this. Congratulations, your photographs and words have brought me great joy since I started reading your blog.
