It's all I have to bring today
This, and my heart beside
This, and my heart, and all the fields
And all the meadows wide
Be sure you count
should I forget
Some one the sum could tell
This, and my heart,
and all the Bees
Which in the Clover dwell.
by Emily Dickinson
I do like this poem ~ very much, and believe I posted it last year as well.
All I have to offer you today is a chance to enter my 1 year anniversary. I think my anniversary was on the 18th, but I've been so busy, I just didn't have time to blog about it. I really appreciate all that visit and that comment. When I first started, I thought "who in the world would want to read what's going on in my life?" and I almost didn't continue with it. I'm so glad I did keep it going, because I have met so many kind and thoughtful people through this blog. Thank you for stopping by and for letting me be a part of your life as well.
Getting back to the gift ~ I am still very busy, so please forgive me for not making a grand gift for you ~ there just isn't time with all the things going on here at home. However, I will be drawing 3 names from those that comment on THIS POST. Each name drawn will receive a $10 gift certificate good toward anything for sale on my website or any of the other online markets that feature my handmade goods (no special orders please ~ no time, remember?). You may see a list of the websites in the sidebar under Honeysuckle Lane wares are found here. And don't worry, there are some $10 items on my website so you don't have to spend any extra $$ if you are being thrifty, like me! Also, if you choose only $10 worth of goods, I will pay shipping costs. When you comment, please make sure that there is a link back to your profile with email address, or include your email address in your comment. You don't have to have a google account to comment. If you blog about this on your blog, let me know with a link back to yours, and I'll add your name twice! I will be closing this Wednesday night (April 23rd) at midnight. I'll announce the winners Thursday morning...
Thank you for making this first year a joy!
Take Care & God Bless,
p.s. My very dear friend Suzanne is also celebrating her 1st year ~ be sure to enter her giveaway at Painter of the Past.
p.s. ~ again, lol! I forgot to let my mailing list know about this until 10pm Wednesday night. So, I will still take comments till noon Thursday.
4-24-08, 12:15 ~ THANKS FOR ENTERING! NOT ACCEPTING ANY MORE COMMENTS FOR THE DRAWING.
I'LL POST WINNERS A LITTLE LATER THIS EVENING.
