One Year Blogiversary!

All righty then!

March 2nd will mark my one year blog-iversary!  So excited!

I have had so much fun this past year in blogland.  I don't know what got me started reading blogs, but once I started ricocheting from blog to blog I was hooked.  Soon my stalking turned into a desire to start my own blog, to participate more fully in the fun.  It's been amazing finding others who share the same ideals and aesthetics, as well as discovering worlds I never imagined existed.  I have enjoyed the generous outpouring of feelings, ideas, inspiration, and encouragement.

Thank you to everyone who has stopped by, left a comment, or become a follower of, my little old blog.  I really really really appreciate your visits and feel the love!

I want to celebrate with a give away.  So I hope I've picked some exciting treats to entice you all to enter.

These are a few things I've been playing with lately.

First, there is a journal that I posted about recently here,
someplace for you to put down your really bid ideas or 
keep your grocery list,

and a bookmark,

.....and some birdies, 'cause I've got to use up all those book pages somehow!

Second, are some sweet little posies in vintage Blue Willow coffee cup.

Tucked in, is a vintage mirrored place setting piece that I've written, "Think Spring".
If you haven't seen these before there is a frosted section on the mirror which allows you to erase and change the name or message.

Lastly, is a spring inspired necklace I've made especially for this occasion!

A skeleton key is surrounded by pretty little pink, white, and gold charms.  
The tiniest flower basket filled with pink rhinestones,
a white and pink pearl dangle,
a rhinestoned butterfly,
and the sweetest little pink shell button I've ever rested my eyes on,
layered atop a white flower button!
All on a vintage gold beaded chain I found on a recent treasure hunt.

The rules? 
I'll borrow some from other giveaways out there.

To enter:

Bonus Round:
Guess correctly what project I have just completed.
It's been on the docket for at least a year!

Please, if you would, leave a comment for each entry, thank you!

I will pick a winner after midnight March 2nd central time. I will be employing the ever so sophisticated method of putting all your names on little pieces of paper and asking an impartial picker to draw one name from a hat.
