A Blog-o-versary Giveaway!!

**This is a sticky post and will remain up until the giveaway is over Saturday, January 10th. For more recent posts, please scroll down. Thanks!!**


Today is the one year anniversary of My Blessed Life--whoo hoo!! It's been such a fun year. I've really enjoyed getting to *know* so many wonderful bloggy friends--y'all are awesome! And it's helped me keep in better touch with far away family and friends. I'm highly addicted to this whole blog thing-ha!

So to celebrate I thought I'd host a little giveaway. Sounds like fun, huh?! The winner will receive:

The Junior League at Home:
Meals and Menus
for Every
Day and Special Occasions



This is a wonderful cookbook--as are all Junior League cookbooks!! I've never been a member, but I do love their cookbooks:) This one has contributions from Junior Leagues around the nation. What I really liked about it (besides the delicious recipes) was all of the wonderful menu plans. It has great plans for just about any occasion and holiday. I think you'll love it!

Then since I absolutely love vintage linens, I thought I'd add in a set of embroidered vintage tea towels that I found one day out *junking*. They're so cute!



And, finally, in the spirit of friendship and my love of letter-writing, I'm also giving away a set of stationery.
I have been a letter-writer since I could actually write (so age 5 or so) and I've loved it ever since. And even though I often choose to go the modern way of email these days, I still love a hand-written letter--both writing them and receiving them!

So if you would like to win this little blog-o-versary package, please leave me a comment here. It doesn't matter if you have a blog or not, join the fun! (If you don't have a blog though, please leave an email address so that I can contact you if you win!). I'll accept comments on this until Saturday, January 10th. Feel free to tell your friends and link to it if you'd like. If you do and you let me know, I'll enter you twice:)

This is so neat. I really thought I was the only one who collected pretty cards and stationary. I love that stuff. Always have.

I would also call myself a cookbook-a-holic! They are addicting. I use mine everyday!

Happy blogoversary, Lora! Looks like I came back to catch up at the right time. This is a great idea. I'm going to have to remember to do something fun like this when I hit the one year point.

I'm catching up on what I missed the last month with all my bloggy friends, so I'm working my way backwards now!

Deborah said...

This is a very generous giveaway...I love Junior League Cookbooks. Have you visited Mary at Across the Pond? The last few days she has had beautiful posts about letter writing.
You might enjoy them if you haven't already been over there.

Happy anniversary on your beautiful blog!

Nancy said...

Happy Blogoversary!!

I'm entering the contest (thanks for letting me know about it) even though I've been a horrible friend lately by not checking in, and probably don't deserve to win.

Then again...maybe I deserve to win as one of your original pen pals from years gone by. I even still have some of those early hand-written letters from you. I'll have to get some out and scan them in sometime. You never know...maybe they'll show up in a post someday!

I really miss catching up with you via the blogosphere! I don't have to tell you how crazy things have been, but I hope to catch up soon!

Love you!
Nanc

Gene and Annie said...
