100th Post Giveaway!

Edited August 19: The winners have now been chosen. Visit this post to see who they are!
*****
Well, I've made it to my one hundredth post! I've had a plan for this post for months now. I'm having a giveaway! Actually two giveaways. Anyone can enter by commenting on this post. If you mention the giveaway on your blog, you can enter twice! Just email or comment to let me know. Since we go on holidays on August 3 and I'm really busy this week, the draw will be held on Monday, August 18 when we get back. So that gives you three weeks to get all your friends to enter! So, here is what you can win:
Giveaway # 1 has a garden-inspired theme. I made this door hanger a couple of months ago, with the intention of giving it away for my 100th post. I really like it so I think I have to make myself one now too. Along with this hanger (which is lightly scented with sweet woodruff from my garden), I will include a current copy of my favourite gardening magazine (I have a few favourites, so I'll see which one's current issue looks the best), and other little garden-themed items to surprise and delight the winner.
Even the back is cute:

Giveway #2 has a black and white theme. I made this little blackheart pincushion the other day and it turned out just a cute as I pictured when I started. I'll include a current copy of my favourite decorating magazine (probably Canadian Home and Country, or Country Home), and other black and white themed items for surprise. I'm having trouble getting of decent picture of this cute little pincushion, but I'll keep trying and update as soon as I get some better ones. It's about 4x4 inches. Front:
Back: *****
If you have a preference for one giveaway or the other, you can say so. Otherwise, your name will be in the draw for both. Edited to add: I found an exact copy of that tiny butter dish while I was out shopping today, but for a much cheaper price! So I bought one to add to one of the giveaways. I also found a few other things. I'll be looking around over the next three weeks for things to add to the giveaways, so you never know exactly what you'll get if you win!

  10. Hi, Jo!

    I'll raise my glass with you to a pretty life! "To life" (From Fiddler On The Roof)is one of my favorite sayings. :>

    Congrats on your 100th post! Please enter me for the pretty garden theme. These give aways are great! Girls just love presents- don't we?

    Have a happy day!

  11. Joey! I totally forgot you had this blog until I stumbled across it while looking for something interesting to browse through from my "favorites" list. What a creative gal you are! I never realised. (I am still am fawning over the tea box you sent me) And the give-away...what a fun idea. (The black and white gift intrigues me. But as shipping overseas is a little "steep", I won't ask to be added to your draw =)) This has given me an idea to try a give-away at my blog. Maybe a framed picture of choice?
