500th post giveaway

I noticed last night in my blogger dashboard that I have made 499 posts to this blog since I started in 2005. So here is post 500!

I think 500 posts is worthy of a giveaway. If you would like your name thrown into the hat (it doesn't matter where in the world you are), please leave a comment on this post. I will tailor the prize to suit the winner. I will get Annabelle to pull the winners name from a bowl on Monday 3 February (NZ time).

Here's a little progress on Snowy Deer. So far it's shaping up to be a cute forest!

Suzanne said...

That's a lot of posts, not even sure how many I have made, I suppose I really should take a look.

Lovely progress on the Snowy Deer.

LesleyAnn said...

Congratulations on 500 posts! That's wonderful.

Thank you for stopping by Plum Hollow. Your stitching is simply beautiful.

The gardens and pets are beautiful. It saddens me to think someone on this earth is cruel enough to disfigure an animal but unfortunately there are cruel people. I'm so glad you took that little fur ball and are caring for it. It shows your kindness.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Carol said...

500 posts! Wow!! I haven't even reached 200 yet--I'm such a slow, slow blogger...

Those little deer are so cute--they look a lot like the ones in our back yard. At least these won't eat all your plantings :)

Count me in on your giveaway, Rowyn--thanks for the chance!
