In case y'all haven't noticed or have been hiding under a rock, there are a lot of giveaways going on right now. Fiona & Twig is giving away an Anthropologie gift card and a copy of Stan Williams' book, The Find. If that isn't enough, Six in One Hand is giving away a $50 gift certificate to anywhere, but the sweetest one is Garden Antiques giveaway. Sweet T is giving a gift certificate for $50 in merchandise from her stock...or as we like to call it...junk!See, this is where my writer's blockage is stemming from. I've been stewing about this for days now. Theresa is always doing for all bloggers..both old and new..and it seemed to me that something was just so wrong about her giving something away instead of vice versa! She gives to us every day and for her to give a gift on her blogaversary is just throwed off on so many levels. I've been a bit peckish trying to figure out a way to celebrate with her and for her. I know I wouldn't be blogging if it wasn't for her and Jenn. They encouraged me to start one and T guided me whenever I hit snags along the way. She always took the time to answer my loopy questions (which was every day) and never lost her patience with me (or if she did, she never let me know). When I hit post for the first time, she "introduced" me and she continues to sponsor countless others who are new to blogging. Having someone take you around and introduce you to the room really helps in the beginning...otherwise I would just be talking to a party of one...me!
So-o-o, when I looked at the calendar and saw how close Halloween was...that was when it hit me....a way to say "Thanks Theresa" and help her celebrate three years of some really great blogging, full of all the news that fit to print!
Everybody needs a bag to go trick or treating, right? And as in everything else, we must do it with style, right? So, I thought I would send her this Betseyville handbag to fill, but then I said to myself..."Self, our queen should never have to go door to door, begging for junk...let's do it for her!" Self made perfect sense to me!
Here's what I'm thinking...I want y'all...her adoring public...to leave me a comment and tell me what you think I should add in the bag.
Now before y'all go getting any grand ideas, I already checked and Johnny won't fit and as far as a million dollars goes...I checked the tree out back and it's empty!
Y'all can check her list of the things she loves on her giveaway post and make suggestions or you can wing it. I'll select 5 things from y'alls promptings and put them in the bag for her.
Think of the time we'll save her AND we'll keep her off the streets at night! (Just kidding!!) Seriously, I'm going to be taking suggestions until Midnight, All Hallows' eve (that's the 31st for the calendar challenged) and IF you leave a comment and IF you decide you'd like to be a follower and IF you do a link post, well then, I think there might just be a little treat for you as well...or at least one of you!
