A GIVEAWAY FOR MY 100TH POST!!!

My 100th post is coming up, so naturally I wanted to have a giveaway to thank everyone who has been so kind to me during the last few months. I've been doing a little sewing just for you. I made an apron just like I use to make back in the 1950s when I was first married. No respectable cook should be without one - just ask June Cleaver!! Then I made a potholder with a transferware cup on it - all of my friends are getting potholders this year from me, and I wanted to include you, my blog friends.

Now, you all know how I love my transferware. So, in my giveaway, I'm including a cup and saucer, in order that we may share a cup of something hot to drink across the miles. This cup/saucer is from the W. H. Grindley & Co. Ltd., England in the 'Homeland' pattern.


I will also include a couple of surprises in the package - a little something from the great state of Colorado. (I promise I won't send you any snow!)


And now, the rules: You will receive a chance to win for commenting on this post and also on my next post. So, if you comment on both posts, you will receive two chances to win. Then, I have a charming grandchild waiting in the wings to draw the winning name on January 28th. If you do not have a blog, please leave me an email address when you comment, so that I can reach you if you do win. Also, sorry but I must limit this to those of you in the Continental U.S. - you know how high postage rates are getting!



Good luck everyone; and thanks again for supporting me during my blog journey!!


Sally

Congratulationson your 100th up and coming post. Shucks I probably would have been too, if I hadn't had the blog fire. Oh well!

Cute goodies...I love the darling apron and the pot holder, I do think they look a bit french country, so I think they will go perfectly in my kitchen :o)

Can't believe you didn't find any goodies at my favorite Goodwill Store. Shucky durn, better luck next time....remember you really have to take your time and look carefully! Hit the pictures first, then the dishes, then the clothes & shoes!

Hey Sally,
Wow, that cute apron just might be the "ticket" to get me to use the metal box in my kitchen that makes fire, oh yeah, that's the stove, right?...seriously, if I had that apron, I bet I could whip up some tasty meals and the pot holder, gosh, would go with my red and white dishes as well... Saw a sign at a giftshop yesterday that said, " The only reason I have a kitchen is because it came with the house"!
Congrats on 100 posts!
