Sun, Sand, and a Giveaway

My view looks pretty sunny these days, which makes me want to celebrate 900 posts at Sue's News, Views 'n Muse with a little giveaway.

Since life's been handing out miracles, I've decided to give one BIG prize this time to one LUCKY winner. (And then I promise never to talk about miracles again. Well, not for a while, anyway.) Below is the piece of art from Etsy that will go to the commenter whose name is drawn from my loverly red bowl. All you do to participate is make a comment on this post and be (or become) a follower. Easy!

(FYI, the buddha is just window dressing.)

I'm not sure how the artist does it, but the plaque is a piece of mahogany painted to look like stone. Pretty cool. It can hang either outside or in the house.

Thanks to all of you for being such wonderful readers. Writing my blog, along with reading yours, is one of my favorite hobbies. This party couldn't happen if you didn't come, and I'm ever so grateful that you do!

The giveaway will end Sunday night (July 31st) at 11:58 PM, and I will announce the winner Monday morning. Good luck, y'all.

Miracles are a good thing - they are what get us over the rough patches, and instill hope and faith in our hearts. Talk about them often as we all need reminders!
PS - I don't know how to fix my status of non persona on Google Reader. I think I need a miracle.

Jenny said...

I almost didn't come visit because I thought you were giving away SUN (which I have more than enough of...thank you very much!) or SAND (which is so irritating to vacuum up...thank you very much!)

...but...

I was brave and came anyway...

And Wow.

What fun!

You know I love your blog!

That is so a word.

Yes, huh.

I love your give away. We do receive miracles or tender mercies from the Lord all the time; it's recognizing them sometimes is the trick.
Love following your blog, of course.

Congratulations on the 900 posts! It's always a milestone to see how much we've written, right? Miracles are always a great thing to read about so if you've got them, feel free to share them because I like reading stories about miracles :)

Lesa said...

Nice giveaway! I enjoy your writing.

Grandma Honey said...

'Expect a miracle'...love that! You keep talking about miracles anytime you like...we could all use more of that.

I so agree with you that blogging and reading blogs of dear friends (like you) is one of my most favorite things to do, for sure. I've learned so much from you. I'm still watching the OWN channel and now I'm following Tatum and Ryan...very interesting! I also love the new series 'Master Class.' All because of you and your blog...or I never would have known!

Anna M said...

I love the reminder and my garden could sure use some miracles

Cheryl said...

900? I'm still sweating my ability to finish the July posting challenge: 31. Days. of. Posts. In. A. Row.

Love visiting your little corner of the world. With that title, I honestly thought you were giving away a roundtrip vacation to California.

Sigh.
