Bird Lamp -- 100th Post Giveaway!!!

This giveaway has ended...
Yeah baby!  This is my 100th post and I can hardly believe I made it this far. It's been fun...and sometimes hard -- with a life going on in the background that's had its ups and downs lately.  

But I've hung in.  I've made some nice friends and I've been inspired by all the very talented (and super funny) bloggers out there.

This is my big one-oh-oh post and I wanted to have a special giveaway.  


I grabbed this curvy lamp at Restore for its shape and not its color.  It was a funky shade of peachy-pink -- not my favorite color since 1987.  Now it's a pale cream, covered with pretty birds (from The Graphics Fairy, of course) and ready for its close up...






Are you feeling lucky?  It's going home with someone.
Maybe it'll be you!

Road Rules for getting up to 4 entries...
  1. Become a follower (or if you already are one) - leave a comment letting me know. 
  2. Leave any comment on this post.
  3. Grab my button and leave a comment letting me know.
  4. Blog about the giveaway on your blog linking back and leave a comment letting me know.
Good Luck!!!


This giveaway ends Sunday, March 27th  and the winner will be 
announced Tuesday, March 29th.
