A Birthday Giveaway
Hey there! Once again, time has flown by and my birthday is fast approaching. It's next Monday, October 18th. For those of you who were 'with me' here on my last two birthdays, you know I like to give something away to celebrate the occasion. This time I will be sixty-six years old! Who knew?
A funny thing happened to me the other week....I was driving my little PT Cruiser and just happened to look at my hands on the steering wheel and the oddest thing happened....I really SAW my hands.....and realized they looked like an 'old lady's hands.' It was shocking! Up until that moment, I thought I was handling my age pretty well. Surprise! Surprise! Several times that day, I noticed them and why I hadn't before, I've no idea. I suppose age just creeps up on a person. But, not to worry, I don't feel old....so it will be OK.
Here's what you might receive for my birthday: a pretty little pink rose box that looks like a small suitcase filled with goodies, among them a clip-on rose, a cross-stitch embroidered basket of flowers lingerie bag, a 2011 calendar, a rose cosmetic bag, pink and green buttons in little plastic jars, a card of pink buttons, four spools of silk twist thread, three vials of beads, a pink crocheted doily, a tiny green pottery bowl made by my friend, Burt and one of my current 'favorite' things...an little envelope book I've made just for you.
If you would like to help me celebrate and win these 'goodies' then kindly leave a comment on this blog post and on Monday, October 18, 2010, a little after 10:00, I will have a random drawing and "that old navy man" can choose the winner. Kindly give me a way to reach you should your name be drawn.
How's that for a celebration? I'll look forward to sending these things to one of my blogging friends! I think that is a great way to celebrate my birthday......meantime, take care, pat
PS. I've taken on the little job of writing a 'journal entry' every Thursday at Second Saturday Studio's blog....just a little way to help out those two sweet girls, Micah and Kelly. If you are interested in seeing what I wrote about today...kindly visit Second Saturday Studio HERE. I'll look forward to your comments both here and there!
Also, in Arkansas, we can 'Early' Vote beginning on my birthday....so I definitely will do so on that day...I urge you all to get out and vote....sooner rather than at the last minute. Join me!
