90....and counting

This post is my 90th. WOW. I had no idea how many posts I had made since starting this blog a few short months ago (November 8, 2009, to be more precise). I've just been kind of cruising along and enjoying the ride.

Anyway, with this being #90, that means that my 100th post is just around the corner.

That just makes me want to celebrate.

How 'bout you?

I'm thinking a giveaway might be in order.

Now bear in mind that I'm not one of those bloggers who has sponsors handing her great giveaway prizes.
No gift cards or expensive jewelery; no Kindles, cameras or other costly electronic gadgets.


They just don't mail well.


I'm gonna fix up a little box of goodies and I'm gonna send it out to one of YOU lovely readers! Kind of a SURPRISE BOX to brighten your day. I'm not gonna tell you exactly what will be in it, but I will say that it will involve happy, springy things to bring a smile to your face!

Kind of like this.

(Yes, I have high hopes. Perhaps I can even elicit a thumbs-up from the winner.)

Are you game?

If so, here's what I have in mind...

Entries begin NOW. A winner will be randomly selected on Wednesday March 24, ten days from now. Each reader can earn four entries by doing the following:

1) Post a comment. That gets you one.

2) If you're not already a follower, become one. And post about it. That's another entry. (If you are already a follower, post an entry telling me that, too...those of you who have been reading my ramblings from the get-go deserve another entry, too!)

3) Tell your friends about my giveaway and encourage them to stop by.
If you tell all about it on your blog and provide your friends with this link: make another post to tell me about it. That's another entry.

4) Let me know which of my posts has been your favorite so far. :) I love writing and I also love it when people read what I write. So let me know which posts you most enjoy, most relate to, etc. That's your fourth entry opportunity.

And keep an eye on things around here until the drawing because there may be an occasional hint as to what could be included in this SURPRISE BOX.


(I LOVE this winking retro woman! That's why I use her so much. :) )
