YEAH!!! It's finally here!! My 100th post, can you believe it? Sometimes it feels I've been blogging forever and then it's like I did my first post yesterday. I remember writing my first one and wondering how long it would take for someone to actually read my blog. I even offered a prize to the first comment thinking I really didn't have to plan anything right away because it would probably take awhile. I had been reading and commenting for about a year before I took the plunge so I figured everyone would know me as a non-blogger. Well lo and behold my friend Crystal came to visit and I had to scramble to come up with something. I was so pleased Crystal was my first because I have been visiting her for a long time.

I have met and made so many new friends and you all mean so much to me. If you don't post or comment for awhile I get worried. I want all of you to know how much you mean to me.

OK Shut Up Judy and get down to business....SHEEESH!!! Since this is the middle of the week I'm giving extra time to comment. I will close the giveaway on November 21. I think that is next Friday. Maybe I should look do you think? This is everything that will be included. Whoops sorry you can't have my babies. I was getting ready for work this morning and they were both watching me as usual so thought I would take a picture of them. So do you suppose Anna sits on the commode so I can't lift the lid and throw her in? This is an everyday occurrence. They are usually in whatever room I am. And remember these aren't part of the giveaway. I don't want anyone to be disappointed.

The 12 days of Christmas towel is though. Don't you think it's cute?
You all liked my fall spatulas so I thought you might like a Christmas one or two. The little one is awesome for getting into small jars. The large one has candy canes and peppermint candies and the small one has a reindeer.
And last but not least is the Holiday Baking book by Linda Collister. It's a great book and she gives advice on making ahead which is always nice this time of year. And as a bonus I'm giving you two of the beautiful tea flowers.
OK everyone, please comment and I will have Bailey draw a name on Saturday November 22 and will post the winner. And I looked, it's the right date!! He did such a fantastic job for the honey giveaway I thought it would be fun to let him do it again.

Oh, darn, I was making room for more kitties, 5 just aren't enough! I will be pleased with the 12 days of Christmas towel and spatulas, though, if I win!
We have the 5 kitties, and now a new puppy, all following at my heels all the time. I don't think I've been to the bathroom without an audience in years! Wonder what they think?

Susie Harris said...

Man... I thought I had a chance to win me some pretty kittys. Congrats on the 100th post. They do fly by fast. Heres to another 100~

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

hey enter me in the giveaway too and give the cats a pat for me.

Dawnie said...

ohhhh count me in! i LOVE those spatulas and cookbooks are probably one of the things I am obsessive over!

Sorry to say but I only like stuffed or pictured cats so you can have those!

My daughter brings her cat when she comes home to vist and it eats all my things that are plugged in. I cant beieve she hasnt gotten shocked. Hubby has to go around and splice everything and get it all working again!

Congratulations on your 100 post!!

Sweet kitty's give them a hug for me and a little scratch behind the ears!

FourSistersInACottage said...

AWWWW SHUCKS!!!! I am happy to report that we are making headway with a darling baby kitten someone threw away on the side of the highway in front of our home. Not quite sure if it's a he or a she, but she is happy with our kitty, they eat together, play together (outside) and last night we were able to get it to go in the tiny kennel and bring it inside the house as it is so cold here in Iowa. The minute I opened the door, she flew out and not sure she will crawl back into that kennel again. We will keep trying.
Please add my name to this AWESOME DRAWING and CONGRATS on your 100th post (you ROCK girlfriend) and if I happen to win, please pass it on to the runner up. We are enjoying the honey so much, it would only be fair.
Hugs and Love, Amy (Mom to the Four Sisters)

The weather here stinks...icy roads and cold...I keep wondering ..Why Do I Live Here???

Randi said...

Congrats on 100! I am so glad to have discovered your blog recently; this is a great place to visit.

I am a little glad that the kitties are not included in the giveaway, because if I won, my hubs would make me send you my cat and that would make me sad! ;)

Crystal Adkins said...

Wait a Minute!!! I think Anna needs to do the drawing! Can I protest??? I'm sure she'd draw her own name, wouldn't she??? And, you know what that means for me!

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Wow! A girl can't even take a buying (business) trip without missing all kinds of goings on! I can't tell you how upset (angry,frustrated,anxious) my Miss Angel kitty was with my absence. Minus the wet fur she had that same scowl on her face (as your posted kitty), upon my return. She's getting better now that I've attended her every need!!! Including holding her water dish while she sips from it. Yup, she knows shes royalty. She has the tiara to prove it.
This newb would like to be entered into your give away for the kitty's...oh,ummm,I mean the cookie book and stuff. So, have we actually asked kitty's if they'd like to be part of the door prize?!?

Sweet Wishes,

Nance said...

Congratulations on your 100th! Anna looks like our Oreo...he's a sweetie!

Congratulations on your 100th post! I just began blogging here a few months ago, I don't know how many posts I've written, but I'm trying to do a gratitude post every day this month. I had to double up some days, though!

Heidi said...

Fun! You have choosen some great giveaway gifts too. I love that your kitties follow you from room to room as mine is the same. He is also always talking to me. Well, he does most of the talking and I just nod away and say "Oh, is that so!" :)

Hugs ~

Vintage Tea said...

Lisa said...

Congratulations on the 100th post! I am so glad I came across your blog and love to see what you are up to each time. Best wishes for many, many more posts.

The giveaway is such a kind and generous one, who wouldn't love that as well! I think the kitties have been secretly plotting with mine. Seems they are forever sitting in the bathroom waiting, and watching. Then again they are in every room waiting, watching, planning the next adventure!

Melissa said...


I'm convinced our little Tuxy kitties must be related.

Happy Friday!

Dawnie said...

I still LOVE those spatulas!

LaundryBasketCase said...

I didn't know if I was too late... oh no, but then I saw the date.. phew! Oh what lovely stuff Judy! The spatulas are sooo sweet. What a lovely giveaway. Oh well, give the kitties a cuddle from me anyway!

Shellmo said...

Congratulations on your 100th post! Glad you visited my blog so I could find yours which is such a treat! Please count me in for your giveaway - I can already picture myself thumbing thru that cookbook and giving those spatulas a whirl!
P.S. Marvin my cat is disappointed that the kitties aren't included.

Prim2Pink said...

Oh heck Judy.
I just noticed that I wrote down your blog instead of the one that I really came from. LOL that's what I get when I hop all around.
Then I see that you've already visited my blog. Thank you for visiting this confused old lady and come back again. LOL
