One Year Blog Anniversary Give Away.....

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our soul blossom."
~Marcel Proust~
I want to thank all of you who visit here at Quill Cottage. You truly are gardeners that make my soul bloom! You are nurturing, kind, and encouraging. Thank you for your support in helping me to branch out and make my weaving of words a reality. Some very good things are in the works that I hope to be able to share with you very soon!

Last week I mentioned in this post how I had let my one year of blogging slip right by me. I also mentioned that I wanted to mull over ideas for a give away celebration. Well, I have mulled for a week and have partial plan. I have decided to use an idea from an old and traditional list that used to be used for gift ideas for wedding anniversaries.

Traditionally on a first wedding anniversary the gift was to be made of paper. So, my one year blog anniversary gift to one lucky winner will be something related to paper. I am still in the process of putting together a pretty box of paper related items. I will try to have photos posted over the weekend.

To sign up for the give away, just leave a comment on this post.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Blessings,
Miss Sandy

P.S. For an update on Angela, see this post.

Congratulations on your one year Anniversary! I just found you today through The Feathered Nest. I had a nice time reading your posts and looking at your photos, especially your storm entry. I found it comforting to read your comparison of the position of your angel to how we must trust in Christ for strength and peace in time of storms. Thank you. I have you bookmarked now to follow more often.
Peace~
