200th POST- giveaway...GIVEAWAY...giveaway

some of you have been there since the beginning...
when the store was empty...
or just barely full...
when the photographers flocked to my window display...
and when I honored my mom on the anniversary of her death.
Some of you even knew me when I had a store in Sellwood...
and one of you was with me as we crammed all of these globes in the back of your car !!!
you were with me as I turned 50 and received my own little retreat in my backyard...
or as the seasons changed...as my windows often did...
but mostly you have commented, looked at, shared, and have been out there as I journey through my life, as a store owner, wife, mom, daughter, sister. For this I am so very grateful.
Until this morning, I had no idea that I was posting my 200th...so...
I do believe that 200 calls for a very special and very large (mini) giveaway...
so how about 200 small vintage items...from buttons to wallpaper to tags to fabrics to books to...who knows what else?
I will check my personal stashes, at the store and at home...and start rounding up the items.
I will picture them in the next few days...
all you have to do is comment. Either on this post or the next ones with the pics of the prizes...and I will draw on April 15th... that way someones' tax day should be a tad bit happier than normal!!!
and thank you all...for being there and reading...

200 posts is quite an accomplishment. I am new to blogging and I think I have 4 posts now. I enjoyed looking at your blog and since I don't live that far away, when we travel south I will make a point to stop at your store.
