100th Post Giveaway

It has taken me a while to reach this milestone.
Nine months, almost to the day.
This  is the 100th post I have written on this little ‘ole blog of mine.
One hundred posts from someone who was apprehensive about starting a blog for fear she would experience “blogger’s block” after only a few weeks.
When I sat down to write that first post, I never dreamed I had 100 posts in me.  And much to my surprise, most of them were written rather effortlessly too. 
Anyway, it has been a while since I have had a giveaway so I thought 100 posts was reason to celebrate with another one.
Here’s a little something I purchased especially for one of my readers…

A pink rose (or maybe it’s suppose to be a peony?) mug, coaster and tray set. 
No matter which flower it is, I think tea, coffee or hot chocolate would taste even better sipping it from this pretty mug.   And I’m sure a few cookies, biscotti, or a muffin would be completely calorie-free if it was served on the coordinating tray.  ::wink wink::  Or how about hot soup and a sandwich?  Yum!

(Note to self:  I NEED to buy myself one of these sets too!)

If you have been reading my blog for any length of time, you know I like to keep my giveaways simple.  I know you have more important things to do so I don’t ask you to tweet, post, follow, or stand on your head for more entries.
If you are interested in being entered, just leave a comment on this post by midnight (Eastern time) Sunday, February 14, 2010.
Easy peasy.
Everyone is welcome to enter.  If you don’t have a blog, please be sure to leave your email address so I can contact you if you win.  If you would prefer not to publish your email address in the comment section, feel free to forward it to me via email at:

Whether you have been here for all 100 posts or this is your first time, thank you for taking time out of your busy day to stop by My Cottage of Bliss.   I am humbled and so very appreciative.

Hi Shari, How is your new home coming along? I have been away from the computer for over two weeks now, vacation time and time to spend with my grandloves, but I am back and just had to visit you. 1oo posts!!! Congrats, it is possible, isn't it?!? I have passed that milestone, but did not celebrate, too much going on at that time. Maybe I will celebrate my one year post. Anyway, enter me, I would love to win the lovely mug and tray. And if it really does take the calories out, maybe I need two;) Hugs, Cindy S. said...

congratulations on your 100th... many many more!
happy valentines day!

Run don't walk to the store and get yourself one of these - or you won't want to give this set away!
Congratulations on your 100th post

Shellbelle said...

Well isn't this a coincidence! I haven't been here is so long and I happen to come by as you celebrate you 100th post! Congratulations!

I've been so neglectful, so I don't deserve to be in your giveaway, but I stopped in to tell you something.

You may not remember me, but we both live in Florida, we were both born in Georgia, and we're about the same age. I was off blogging for two months last year while I was sick and lost touch. Anyway, I see you have since moved to the country. Well honey, I'm moving to the country in Georgia after all these years! I'm going to try and mix my beachy style with country and looking back at some of your posts has given me some great ideas!

Congrats again on this milestone and on the move!

Hi Shari! Congrats on your 100th post! That's quite an accomplishment! And thanks so much for your sweet remarks on my blog! About the chair and ottoman...they don't look like it, but they also rock. She bought it here in the Atlanta area at a store called The Baby's Room. They have a web site where it seems that the chairs are manufactured by Best Chair.
The one that they bought is not represented online, though. I'm not sure if that's very helpful. Sorry!
I see you also received one of Gloria's wonderful tassels! Isn't she the sweetest lady?
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend...hugs...Debbie
