Giving thanks and celebrating 1500 posts with a GIVEAWAY!!!


This month our thoughts always turn to those things in our lives
we are all so thankful for ~
our precious faith, family, friends, health and so much more ~

To have this thankful heart all year 'round
is truly a blessing to yourself and
to those around you as well, don't you think?

Today I am thankful for so many things dear friends....
and one of those things is YOU and this sweet blog ~

From my first post about our simple bedroom at the old house....
I have loved blogging and sharing with you!
It was like stepping through the looking glass,
meeting friends from all over the world who love the
same things I love!!!!





I've loved sharing pieces of my home
(that just happened to be clean at that moment :)



And I was so proud and scared to share
my first little assemblage artwork with you!


For all the creative encouragement you've given me over these past years,
I am so very thankful!!





My first baby shoe pincushion....




The more I shared with you...
the more I wanted to create!!




To me, blogging is sharing, celebrating and  lifting one another up ~




How in the world did I get to 1500 posts??
I don't really know...
I guess I just love sharing with my friends!!!

I haven't quite decided what I want to give away BUT
I'll be sure to add it here on this post when I do decide.

Simply leave a comment on THIS POST
if you'd like to be entered to win!!!
Don't have a blog??
Please leave your email address in your comment
so I can get in touch with you :)

This giveaway will end Sunday night,
November 21st at 6:00 pm EST

It's not how much we have
or how important we think we are...
what truly matters
is how we treat one another in this journey we call life.
  
~ me ~


Have a very happy Monday my sweet friends!
hugs and love,
Dawn

Sweet Old Vintage said...

1500 times you have brought enjoyment to my day. I have loved reading and viewing each and every one... I remember how shy I was when I first started posting and you helped me many of the times and supported me... Somedays I wish My posts were better but some days it doesn't flow as easy as others... There are days I know I need to do better and then someone gives a kind word and you just think OK thats nice that some liked it.... Wanted to say thanks and know you just got back home and I know you are filled with ideas... Will be looking forward to seeing your country home for Christmas..... Blessings...
