100th Post and Giveaway...




I've been trying to double up on posts the past few days to reach the magic number of 100. I want to be able to have my little giveaway before the final hectic days of the holiday postal rush get in the way! If you'd like to join in on the giveaway, please leave a comment on this post by midnight CST on Friday 12/7/2007. I will be giving away a copy of Nell Hill's Feather Your Nest by Mary Carol Garrity and a copy of Vintage Cottages by Molly Hyde English. A few surprise treats will be added to the package...


I leave you with my "thought for the day" from my new favorite book, The Holy Man by Susan Trott:

"When you are reading a magazine or newspaper, consider reading a novel or poetry. When reading a novel, consider reading a book on astronomy or bird behavior. Realize you have at least an extra hour every day, probably four, in which to learn a language or calculus. Use your mind to the hilt. Life passes quickly and, toward the end, gathers speed like a freight train running downhill. The more you know, the more you enrich yourselves and others."

What a treat to meet you through blogging! Congratulations on your 100th post. Each one gets better and better and I look forward to stopping by to see what's new at Plumwater Cottage.
Janet said…
Just found you through K&K and thought I would tell you where to find the basket, but I see that the girls have been by to tell you already. I ordered mine today and am hoping it will make me as clever and witty as those two! Not much of a chance I am afraid as I have never liked carbonated beverages:>). Stop by and visit me sometime.

Loved the quote by Susan Trott...something we should all keep in mind. Connie
Congratulations on your 100th post! That's quite an accomplishment. Love your blog by the way. I've been to Nell Hill's store several times and even got to tour her home a couple of years ago on the Christmas tour. I have one of her books, but not this one.

What a concept! Not sure that I could bend my mind around calculus, but I'd like to try French...again. :)

Hearty congratulations on your 100th post!!
