1 Year Blog Anniversary and GIVEAWAY

November 4, 2013

I love crocheting and as you all know I have been crocheting pumpkins lately.  My one year anniversary of blogging is coming up on Friday, November 8, 2013 and to celebrate it I would love to have a GIVEAWAY.  


I crocheted this pumpkin and the lucky winner will receive this orange pumpkin.

And this white pumpkin too. 

The winner will also win as an extra bonus this chevron dishcloth I made.

Please be a follower or become a new follower to my blog and leave a comment on why you would like to win these crocheted pumpkins and dishcloth.  It will start today Monday November 4th and end on Thursday November 7th (4 Days).  The winner will be announced on Friday November 8th.

I want to thank everyone for your support and welcome my new followers to my blog.  I appreciate everyone of you and I have learned so much about blogging and I still have more to learn.  I appreciate all of your sweet and kind comments and I have made some nice friends along the way too.  Many of you have blog parties and I want to say thanks for featuring my recipes and crochet projects on your lovely blogs.  Thanks everyone, I look forward to my next year of blogging!

P.S.  I want to give a big thanks to you my daughter for encouraging me to make this blog and the help you gave me to get it started.   

Thanks everyone and enjoy.

Also, what a lovely giveaway, my friend. Anyone would be blessed to receive your handmade items - they are beautiful! I would certainly enjoy the dish cloth since I have no dishwasher and am always washing dishes my hand so this would be handy at my home :) And those pumpkins...too cute! I would enjoy putting them out in my home for some lovely Autumn decor. Hugs to you!
