Happy Bloggy Birthday!

I almost missed it ! Hard believe I have been puttering away here for a year already :) 302 posts. Who knew I had that much to say. Thanks so much for popping by and continuing to do so, even you lurkers! Heaven knows, we are all lurkers at times, it is enough to read and enjoy. There are so many wonderful places to visit and just never enough time. I write because I love it and I hope you will enjoy it too.

Of course.... in honor of this auspicious occasion and because I love giving...... a wee giveaway is in order. The winner can choose a print/photo from my shop and I will also package up a small parcel of surprise goodies for you! Leave me a comment here telling me what you would wish for your very best friend, it can be as practical or unpractical as you want.

You do not need a blog to be entered, just make sure you leave an email address where I can contact you. I will use a random number generator to pick the winner! on November 20th!

Thanks everybody:)
p.s. those cakes are from Gerald Mulot in Paris!

Happy Blogversary! I forgot mine again this year. Bad, bad, blogger. I know someone who would love one of your prints for Christmas, and if I don't win, well, I'll just have to buy it!

Happy Birthday!!!! Your blog is so beautiful and professional I thought you have been blogging for years - awesome job!!!!!

What would I wish for my best friend...Since my husband is my best friend and then some, I would wish that he could win the lottery so he didn't have to work and could enjoy his passions full time like I have been able to do over the years. Michael has been a great provider and as a result I have been able to stay home, raising our sons. Because of his work, he gave the boys and I the greatest gift - time with each other! I am blessed!

Happy birthday and by the way the cakes look yummy!!!

Hi I just called in from Rochambeau's blog, which is amazing,and such a great read.

Happy Blogiversary, you certainly have done very well. I have been blogging for 3 years in January and have just done my 300th post, so you are way ahead. Love the cakes.

I would wish for my friend in Paris, that she finds inner peace, and is not troubled by family life.

What I wish for my best friend is that she can find good help and peace of mind and solutions for herself and her adopted son who was born to a crack-addicted mother. He will pay the price for his mother's selfishness for the rest of his life.

Now that was a downer, wasn't it? But it's my wish for her.

leendadll said...

Maybe I should wish FOR a best friend - or the tolerance to keep one instead of feeling everyone is a liar, flake, or both. Then I could wish them one of your paintings, which I love.

But this is actually just a long way of saying hello and happy blogiversary!

Angela Power said...

Oh how fun!! What a fantastic giveaway!! *fingers crossed*!!!!!

Right now one of my best friends is going through a tough transition with a new job and I wish for her with all of my might that she can push down any of the negativity and disappointment that she might feel and blast it to kingdom come with her amazing talent and brains that deserves to shine through ;-)

Happy blog birthday!

I'm not sure who my best friend is, but for one of my best friends I'd wish that she'd be able to find a job she enjoys.

Happy Anniversary! I always read your blog when I need a lift. Thank you for writing it.

My BFF is my husband and I wish more confidence for him. He's so talented but he has a hard time believing it.

I know my dear friend Andrea would love to have one of your prints on her wall. Consider this my entry into your contest. :)

What I would wish for my best friend is that she would never doubt how beautiful she is both inside and out, that she would never again even think that she is ugly because she is one of the most beautiful people I know.

Happy Bloggy Birthday!

Happy anniversary! I love coming to visit your blog. I never know what I'm going to get but I'm never disappointed.

I would have wished for my best friend to get the recognition she deserves but just this past weekend my wish for her came true. Now I wish for it to bring her the happiness that she thought it would.
