Ladies, Start Your Engines!!!

It's time to pay close attention! I have for you today not one, but two fantastic giveaways!!! I know I am greatly reducing my chances of winning by sharing this, but I think y'all really deserve a chance of getting in on the action while the getting is good. If you know me, you know I love contests. I love games, crosswords, trivia...anything with even a small challenge and I am a really poor loser. Just ask my kids. When they were small I never let them win...they had to do it on their own. Woe to them when they started beating me. (And yet once again I drift off from the subject on hand.) The two giveaways, that's what I was telling y'all about, right? Both of these bloggers are celebrating their 100th posts and we all know what an accomplishment that can be.The first is at Whisperwood Cottage. Amy is a fantastic, oughtabe photojournalist and junker extraordinaire. She takes "junk" and repurposes it with real thought. You have to go over and look at her blog just to see the Kaaa-Yute wine glass charms she made! You're going to want to steal, I mean borrow that idea for your own and believe me, that's just one idea. She's got a million of 'em! The photos that go with her text just have to be seen to be believed. Talk about a talent! Am I gushing? Good!!! To be included in her giveaway, first you have got to go see her, second leave her a whisper (translate that to comment, doncha love that?), third, become a follower...which you will want to do immediately, and fourth, give her a shout out on your own blog. Easy peasy, right? Hers is one of my favorites and I look forward to all her new posts. I wait with bated, baited, oh heck, I wait with martini breath for each and every one!
The next giveaway is at Maison Douce. Isabel is no stranger to most of you. She always has the best eye candy and beautiful things to look at on her blog. It is such a feminine blog and one that never fails to inspire. She has led the most interesting life and her 100th post is all about her life. She shares so many details and photos of traveling and living around the world. It's just like we were there for all of it. I mean she has a wonderful life! Imagine growing up in Portugal, attending french schools, living in England and Morocco, marrying your Prince Charming! It's just all tutu much! You just have to go over and read it all for yourself. I swear up and down, it could be a novel! She has a clever twist on her giveaway that you will really enjoy. Think decisions, decisions, decisions!
Now in case you haven't already noticed, I haven't mentioned what the prizes are. Let's just say Fab U Lous! To find out how generous these two ladies are (and may I add, REALLY generous) you are going to have to go visit them. Be sure and tell them I sent you (can't hurt my chances, right?) and leave them a sweet comment. Remember though, I don't like to lose!!!
Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh! The Domestic Fringe just posted an interview she did with me and I actually like me!!! Check it out if you have time and be kind!
