100th Post Giveaway

I’ve always wanted to have a giveaway for my 100th blog post. This is actually my 106th post; I had my 100th post while I was in China. To celebrate my 100th blog post, I’m giving away a strand of pearls that I purchased from the pearl market in China.



To enter the giveaway, just leave me a comment. If you mention my giveaway on your blog, you’ll be entered twice, let me know if you do (got this idea from another blogger). If you’ve never left me a comment, please do~ I would love to meet you! If you don’t have a blog, leave your email address in the comment so I can notify you if you’re the lucky winner. Good luck! The winner will be announced on November 5th.

What an awesome giveaway! I have never owned pearls, so this would be wonderful!

The Cwtch said...

I came across your blog through Mrs D. What a lovely place. Congratulations on your 100th post!

My next door neighbours (who are both doctors by profession) have an amazing story - they have 8 adopted children, all but three of whom they met through their work with children with desperate health needs in developing countries. Incredibly, they have all managed to surmount their different disabilites and are now living wonderfully fulfilled exceptional lives. Two of the children (actually young adults!) returned to Taiwan some months back to meet their birth families. They are truly an inspirational family.

Hello, Please enter me in your contest. The pearls are beautiful! Best, Becs

How sweet of you to have such a nice giveaway! Of course I would love to win - who wouldn't. I found you through my friend Treasure Ann's Blog

Why I want to win - other than they are beautiful. I have a wonderful friend who adopted her daughter from China, and although I'd love to win for myself - she could really use the pick-me-up right now. These would be perfect for her.

Congrats and Best wishes on your next 100 posts.
