It’s here!

Yes. I am finally announcing my 100 follower celebration giveaway! Today is a special day for me and seems a good day to start my giveaway.

I wracked my brain trying to decide what to give away and finally decided that I would give away some of my favorite things. Well, not actually MY things, but things that are my favorites. Only new.

So…I have decided that the theme of my giveaway is “Here Are A Few of My Favorite Things”, which happens to be one of my favorite songs from my very favorite movie!

What am I giving away?

Well…
It may have something to do with:
Laura Ingalls Wilder.
Candles.
Something sweet.
My love of reading.
And maybe, just maybe, something from one of my favorite places that I may be making a day trip to shop (and eat) at tomorrow.

First of all, because I love Laura Ingalls Wilder, a biography about her by expert and author William Anderson.
I love our property and what it gives back to us so I’m including a jug of our own maple syrup.
A little gingerbread boy because they always make me smile. He comes from Bronner’s in Frankenmuth.
I love candles so I had to include a candle.
Nothing’s better on a chilly fall or winter afternoon than a cup of tea so I’m including some Michigan Wild Cherry tea bags.
Our property also gives us lots of blueberries every year. I don’t make preserves, but I did bring some back from Frankenmuth’s Bavarian Inn for the winner to enjoy – Blueberry Rhubarb preserves.
And, lastly, I love to read and I love my state of Michigan. I’ve included a bookmark with a little Michigan info on it.

What do you think? Are you game? Be a public follower and leave a comment here telling me what one (or some) of your very favorite things are. I will draw the winner on November 11!

Good Luck!

  17. Let's see my favorite things, currently Twilight is one of them. I could read those books over and over. Although I just love any good book. May have to start reading some Laura Ingles Wilder. Spending time with the hubby and kids (when they aren't constantly whining). Gatlinburg, TN is my FAVE place, I can't wait to go back again. I'll go ahead and stop there, don't want to go on forever:) Congrats on 100 followers πŸ™‚
