Back in April, I wrote about doing a book giveaway here and asked a question. I have too many books so that after I read them, I usually like to give them away so that someone else can enjoy! I can’t possibly keep every single book that I buy, although there are a lot that I do keep! ☺ So I asked:
Mama Hen said…
Now, Mama Hen (aka Teresa) has a lovely blog over at Hen Scratches and we “met” through our blogs, and also through a lovely series of coincidences. When she started following my blog, I hopped on over and checked out her blog. She had made mention of some blogs that she enjoyed, not only mine but also A Happy Honeybee, who headed up the Little House Christmas Stocking swap that I participated in over at swapbot.com. What a coincidence is that? And then, on another post, Mama Hen talked about the Little Town on the Prairie Read-Along going on at Beyond Little House and, when I commented on that one, I found out what her “name” is over there too. So, not only are we blog friends, we are Laura Ingalls Wilder friends as well!
Back to that there comment up there ↑ I did end up sending Mama Hen my address and….well just look at what she sent me!
|First the box. The box was beautifully adorned with old -timey pictures having to do with books and reading. Loved it!!|
|Including this bookmark, which she had in safely wrapped in plastic so that I could use it. I love the picture and the quote Nature and books belong to the eyes that see them. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson|
|And she couldn’t decide which book to send…so she sent five! And I haven’t read any of them and they all look really good. I can’t wait to read them!|
So…a big thank you to my friend Teresa (aka Mama Hen, aka TLynn). You are awesome! And I’ll be optimistic and say that I can’t wait to meet you at LauraPalooza next year!!
