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 :)
