Anniversary Give Away!


Soon like on the 22nd of this month, Your Mother Knows will be one year old! That's gone by really quickly.

To celebrate how many new, interesting people I've met, great moments I've spent reading blogs, and also you fabulous people who have signed on to follow, I'm celebrating with a give away.

Thanks to the help of my friend Sarah at Cottage Garden Studios, I will be gifting one lucky winner with this adorable creation by Sarah which is a 5x7 print of art she created just for the occasion. Additionally, the winner will receive a $25 gift card from Amazon.com.

So, you know you want to help me celebrate! You have between now and the 20th to let me know that you want in on the fun. I'll announce the winner on the 22nd. Leave me a comment here on this entry. You can let me know by email, too.

Thanks for your help Sarah...this adorable Scottie is going to be very hard for me to gift away, but then you all knew that!

Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly

That is such a sweet print! Thank you for sharing it with us. I've only recently found your blog, but am enjoying it immensely.

Sunny said...

Congratulations as your year anniversary approaches. I used to have a black Scottie dog many years ago, so I would love to be included in your Give Away.
Thank you!
Sunny :)

What an awesome give-away, Holly! And Happy Anniversary!

It is said that the most thoughtful gifts are those that you'd want to keep for yourself, and I KNOW that this giveaway is coming straight from your heart. I honestly don't know how you can part with such a charming image.

And a credit to Sarah. .I recognized it as her work, even before I read your text. I was thinking how sweet it was that she had drawn a Scottie for you, and you were sharing it with all of us! Little did I know! lol

Your blog is a mind and heart stimulator, Holly, and I look forward to many years of provocative reading! You can't ever retire!

Hugs!!
Suzie

Oh Oh Oh Oh I want one! Me! Me! MEEEE (jumping up and down with arm waving in the air in the fashion of Arnold Horshack from Mr. Cotter). My birthday is Friday, does that extra qualify me????? How about being greedy? Or a hoarder of lovely things? How about just plain blessed to know you? Do any of those qualifications help me? Huh Huh Huh??? (Me thinks I've been spending too much time with my toddler grandson).

Congratulations on the one year birthday of your amazing blog and thank you for one year of amazing posts.

WrightStuff said...

Ha, that's funny. I saw this pic first at Sarah's blog and thought, "hey, Holly would love that!". Then the brain cogs slowly started working (it is only 7am as I write this) and I realised it was your blog she was talking about - doh! Still, shows I am getting to know you and your passion for all things Scottie! Congratulations on your year anniversary. You write a lovely blog. Keep up the good work!
