My 200th Post! WooHooness!

Oh, Dearest Ones! I am celebrating today! This is my 200th post! Where did my 100th post go, you ask? I don't know!! But here I am at 200! Isn't this exciting! I starting blogging last June and I have been having the time of my life!!

Never in a life time would I have imagined what friendships were waiting for me in Blogland! I really feel like you're my family. See, I don't have any brothers or sisters - so I claim you all as my family! You've excepted me and all of my silliness with open arms and I thank you, Dear Ones, for that! You've stuck by me when I've made mistakes! You've laughed with me and probably at me, too! ;) You've prayed for me when it seemed we were lost during Hurricane Ike! When we returned home and I saw how you had even posted my picture on some of your blogs and was praying for our safe return...I really did just sit down and cry! You've snapped in bathrooms for me all over the world! Oh, I could go on and on.

Well, now that I've dried my little gorgeous eyes, what do you do in Blogland when you have a bloggaversary? You give stuff away! Well, I'm going to have my very first giveaway. I'm so excited. Let me tell you about it...
You can see three items in this picture, but there will be some more little surprises thrown in.
First you'll receive this darling little tea set for one. The most gorgeous light blue with flowers covering it. It comes in the prettiest box too!
Then, I got crafty and thought I would make a little piece of art work for you, after so many of you liked my laundry room artwork. Now see, I'm using one of my own words here! You all have given me such 'Joyness'!!
Do you like this little retro looking plate? The pattern is called Good Morning and was made by the Royal China Company. Well, I wish I had the plate so I could give it to you but I don't. But I love the roosters and I know many of you do too! I embroidered some rooster pillows last summer and so many of you commented on how you liked them. So...
I adapted the design of the plate and embroidered this just for you with my own little dainty fingers! Then I made it into this precious pillow.
Here's a close up of the trim and the fabric. Everyone can use a little red, right?
Here's a close up of the embroidery. I hope you like it because I really did enjoying making it for you!
A really close close up! ;) You can even see my tiny little knots from the backside, don't hate me!

Well, Dear Dearest Ones, there you have it, my giveaway to you and remember there will be a few little extras too! Now I guess I really don't have many rules - just make sure you have a blog, then comment telling me you would like your tiny name entered on the giveaway and then just enter one time so we can all play fair! I'll turn the comment button off on Sunday evening and then I will announce the winner on Monday morning! Good luck!!

I really do wish I could give you all something. If I could make you all an embroidered pillow I really would but I'm afraid my little dainty fingers just might fall off!! ;) Then I couldn't blog anymore!

So think of me all day and my Happy Bloggaversary - 200 posts!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

  17. Happy 200th to you Shelia . You have a beautiful give away but since I live in Europe I won't enter.

  18. Hi Shelia,

    Congrats for your 200th post.. may there be another 200 more interesting & wonderful post! what a nice giveaway you are having! I would love to enter your giveaway..n have a great week!

  19. I found your blog while you were missing after Ike and worried along with everyone else. Then I rejoiced with everyone else when you came back. I am sure glad you did because I have enjoyed the ride since then. Now be sure and enter my name in your give away. That is an awesome give away you are having! 200 posts! Wow!

  20. Congratulations on the 200th post, and you've made each one so interesting to read. That's a real talent. Your giveaway is just fabulous. I love everything. I would love to have my tiny name entered. What gorgeous gifts. Hugs, Marty

  21. Hey Shelianess, You have been one BUSY silly girl. You've done blogged your little heart out and somehow found time to make that gorgeous pillow and an original Joyful work of art! I'm gobsmacked I am.
    I just bought some fabric to make a quilt in the same colors as that cute little teacup/pot. The soft blue with accents of red, yellow and green are peaceful and cheerful all at the same time.
    Me covets that rooster pillow something fierce. I'd pay my hard earned dough for a treasure like that. And to think that it was made by your very own peaches and cream little paws! Me oh my, you have me in a tissy here. How can I get my name in that drawing? Can I stand on my head for an extra entry. What if I dance a jig for you? I could give you my first born, don't you want another daughter? lol Miss Silly would love Galveston. Okay, I could go on and on but you're probably getting tired of my begging and whimpering so I'll just step away from the blog and wait impatiently for the big drawing with all of my fingers, toes and eyes crossed.
    Pick me, pick me, Hugs, Bridget : )

  22. Wow, 200 wonderful posts! Good for you! Please enter my name too and I've got my fingers crossed.

  23. WOOHOO Shelia your 200th post is definitely a celebration!!!!!!!!!

    I am about to swoon over that pillow you made. You see I just switched my bedroom out to my more "summery" looking quilt of red/cream/khaki colors and that would be PERFECT on it. Your giveaway is FABULOUS and please, please enter me (then draw my name okay...maybe a bribe might help??)....lol♥

  24. I must tell eveyone...the pleasure has been all mine! You, my sweet friend,always seem to place a smile on my face. I would love to win that pillow alone...just because you made it! Just having you for a friend is what matters the most,smile..... Happy 200th~

  25. OMG!!! PICK ME,PICK ME!!!! I'll just well up and cry if I don't win! I love every single item...especially your frame. You should be selling your frames on Etsy...they are adorable. Where do you find lettering that big?

The very best wishes to you for 200 more posts and beyond in the years ahead. Oh, and I agree 100% about blogging friendships...they are a true blessing. :-)

  41. Happy, happy HAPPINESS for your
    200th post anniversary. That's a lot of blogging, little precious one. I am not even knowing how many I have done...I need to check that.
    Well, first off, this is a most DELIGHTFUL giveaway and very nice of you to give us all a chance at all the sweetness!
    Second...I am just flat about to have a hissy fit for that pillow. It MUST be mine, here in my little RED cottage! OK...so if it's NOT to be, maybe I can learn to emb. like that...Can I?
    hugs to you today,

  42. Hi Shelia! Wow! 200 posts that gave so much joy to everyone? Congratulations! Please enter my name in the drawing...I would love to have that pillow, especially because it was created by you. Of course the other stuff are darling too!...Christine

  115. Shelia,

    Congrats on your 200th post! I have read how so many bloggers feel that we are sisters of sort and it is true. You truly can feel the love in most posts and comments and it is a new, different but very good feeling to know there are people out there that love and care for you! I wasn't a blogger when you were in Hurricane Ike and I can certainly believe these ladies were there for you. We are a loyal bunch aren't we? And I think most of you Southerners have pretty much accepted this yankee in to your circle! ;-)

    Well I am rambling. You have a lot of well wishers here! Consider me your number one fan dear sweetness!


  116. Oh Shelia... I thought I had missed it! I was so very sad because I love your giveaway so much, but then I was thrilled because I found out I had until Monday... hooray!!! Enter me please and quick too! :)


  117. Congratulations! What an anniversary:) You are such a sweet lady and you bless so many just by being who you are. I stop by and read your blog from my friend Shanda's at Front porches, sweet tea. I am so glad I found a new blogging friend. I just started my blog and I hope one day to be celebrating my 200th post as well.
    Bless you
    Gina Jo
