My Birthday GIVEAWAY!



My birthday is TODAY January 8th and I share it with.......

David Bowie....... a genius

Professer Steven Hawking........ a genius

Lawrence Alma Tadema, one of my favourite painters........a genius... Click on his pic to see some of his work.

and......a hunk of burning love, Elvis....... another genius!

Still working on my genius:)

I will be at the market all day tomorrow starting early in the am. Pop by and say hello on Saturday. Because it is my birthday, that means GIVEAWAY time! Nice to give as well as receive! I would love it if you might follow me:) Leave a comment for me and your name will be entered into a draw for $100 worth of goodies from me! I need an email address to contact you. If you don't have a way for me to find you easily, I cannot send you your gift.
I will close down my birthday party at midnight January 8th Atlantic time. Feel free to share:)

Oh and 1 week from today, my photo course starts again. Why not join in the fun:)

Happy Birthday to you! Mine's next week -- gives us something to look forward to in the rather dull month of January, doesn't it?
And love Tadema's work -- looks Pre-Raphaelite-ish. Never heard of him before.
Blessings,
G

Hi Shelagh,

I was down at the market on Wednesday about bought your NS Potluck book. We had a great chat about going to the same Jr. High, living a few doors down from one another years ago but in different time frames (how freaky is that?).
Hope you have an amazing birthday on Saturday. I'll will be back down there some Wednesday and I'll see you again!

You are so beyond giving and share so many of your talents I think January 8th is a perfect day for you to have been born. Only you would be so generous as to give away something on your birthday! And what is this I read about you selling sauce as well?

I hope you had the most fantastic day.

Happy Happy Birthday.

I just found you through your interview with Marilyn (we heart Marilyn!) Happy Birthday. I'm sure David Bowie, if he ever meets you, will express the same sentiment about you. Have a good one!
