Funky, Folky Horse ~

Oh my goodness!  I can't believe it.  I have been blogging for just over three years and this is post #500.  Some of you have been with me since day one.  Thanks to everyone for reading my blog, leaving so many sweet comments and for being my friends.  I appreciate it more than you will ever know.
As a thank you, I'm giving away this little hooked mat.  It's measures about 11" x 13".  For once the colors of my pic are pretty accurate. As always, entering is simple.  Leave a comment on this post only or send me an email with give-away in the subject line.  Please do not post it to your blog.  I will pick a winner Saturday evening.

Once again, thank you so much for taking the time to read my ramblings.
Pug hugs :)

Love, love and love more your blog. I just found it this morning via blog surfing. I started at Gettysburg Homestead and meandered around. I love your pics. Several things in common and so I joined your blog. :) I am loving your clematis pics. I lost mine, and am currently searching for a light purple bluish one I saw and can't find since. I love pooches and am all about rescue and of course the biggy....prim rugs and all things prim. I would be honored to enter your contest and win this awesome rug. I've been looking for a horse prim item as I don't have anything horsey but love them.

Thanks for your generosity. :)
Looking forward to following your blog. Have a happy day!!! Julie

Saundra said...
