The Big Announcement Is Here!

A Tisket, A Tasket,

It's only an empty basket? Not quite.

Today marks my one year anniversary in blogland,

however, that is only one small part of this celebration.

The big reason for celebration is:

Okay, I know "Friends" is misspelled, It will be fixed before I send it out to the lucky winner!
Thanks, Janet!


Today is my 50th birthday!

I invite you all to celebrate with me by joining in on my big, huge, gigantic giveaway.

For the each next 50 days I will post a photo of one item I will add to the basket above. Leave a comment on any of these 50 posts, plus this one and you will be entered to receive the whole basket and its contents. You can leave a comment everyday, but only one comment per post will be entered, ie the maximum entries you can have will be 51, (that's 50 + 1 for good luck). I will be adding vintage bits and bobs, some handmade items, and some kits and supplies for your own crafting.

If you would like to help me spread the word, please grab the sidebar button and link back to my blog.

While I enJOY My Birthday,
I Hope You enJOY Your Blessings,
Kimberly

Sounds really cool. I think it is an amazing giveaway for sure. I will be sending you your Christmas swap on Monday. I am excited about it, and Happy Birthday. 50 is a big one. Please know that it is just the beginning of a whole new world for you! I had a hard time for a while, but then as more birthdays came in my 50's it got better and better. I am (53)
Also Happy Blogging anniversary too.

Well, hello Kimberly! I just discovered your blog from Julie at a Vintage Chic. I was so very interested in your 50th birthday bash because I celebrated my 50th not all that long ago. Then when I went to read the details was shocked to see that we share the same birthday! As I shared my celebration this year, I thought, I am sure there is another blogger out there who has the same birthday and now I've found you! Please enter me in your giveaway. I have become a followere and look forward to getting to know you better! Have a great weekend! Twyla

A Vintage Chic said...

Well, I can tell I've been away from home too much this summer, because I sure missed this one! Glad I caught it tonight!

Happy belated birthday to you...50's coming up real fast for me, too! Hope it was a great day for you!

What a fun idea for a giveaway--count me in, and thanks for a chance to win such a wonderful gift!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
