Tomorrow is the Day!

Just a reminder that tomorrow is the day of the drawing in "A Thank You for Being My Blogging Friend Giveaway". So, if you haven't gotten your name in "the pot", this is your last chance.

Summer Butterflies Theme
Tea Towel from Anthropologie
Notepad (Primitives by Kathy)
"Butterfly Meadow" votive by Lenox
"Catena" (shamelessly containing two of my short stories)
Electrical cord not included!




I'll be drawing the name of the winner on Saturday, August 14.

  5. Hey Bonnie,
    I'm glad I met you on here, it's been fun chatting with your via our blogs. Congrats on the year mark too.

    I forgot to answer you question about my sis. Yes she lives in California. They had a lot of fun, and I believe they leave today. We are looking into coming for a visit either Thanksgiving or New Years eve. I know it will be super cold then, are there a lot of plane issues at that time (December) I know here we get a lot of cancelations because of fog, but are there tons there because of snow?

  10. Love your post today! I started my blog August 18th 2009. I was looking for something; didn't know what and it was my daughter in law who suggested a blog. I laughed and told her that I had no idea what it was and wouldn't know where to start. Here I am and I only found you recently I really enjoy reading you. Congratulations.

  11. Count me into the entry!! Your generous prize looks amazing, in such good taste as always! Gosh, you DO have 100 followers now! I have seen it grow from just a few, and noticed you have been getting lots more lately, that is because you have a very good blog. Actually, you know I am a follower, so that's two. How will you choose? Draw names from a hat or something? It will be interesting to see who wins.

  19. Happy blog anniversary! I started mine about a year ago as well- I was on my way home from moving a son and his wife to Chicago and I needed something to occupy my mind on the long drive. (He suggested I start a blog to help keep in touch.) I've only just begun to "meet" all of the wonderful welcoming people in the blogging community (including you) since summer vacation began! Thank you for being a blogging friend! I am a follower, so I can be sure not to miss your posts.

  24. I am glad to meet you and love all your cooking posts. I need inspiration in that area. I also enjoyed your prospective on blogging. I am still new at it and am amazed at all I have learned. There is a vast world out there.

    I've noticed quite a few Bonnie's out there in blogland. I was the only Bonnie growing up in my town and until recently did not know any others.

    I will enjoy following your blog and learning from you.

  29. Congratulations on your first year of blogging. When I first heard about blogging, I thought "do they really have something that important that they need to share it with the world?" Then I realized that blogging isn't about importance, it's about sharing and making friends. And I'm so glad we have found eachother.

  40. I feel as if I have wended my way here just in time. What a lovely giveaway, but that's not why I'm here.

    Thank you for telling me about your experience with Elizabeth Berg. I have just finished reading Range of Motion, which I really enjoyed. It is one of her older ones having been published in 1995. Visiting her web site just now, I see that she was a nurse for ten years. I'm sure that that has been very helpful in her writing and certainly for the book I read. The Berg book I read prior was The Year of Pleasures, which I thought had a wonderful premise, but I didn't like it as well as RoM.

I always enjoy hearing from you, my blogging friends.
