100th post.........

just call me Mrs. Motormouth! I had no idea this blog would grow so much. I started it as a joke, because my darling friends JJ and Joy were forever talking about being in Lalaland, and the three of us are proud members of the Lalalanders United Club. I just couldn't resist starting a Lalaland blog. JJ and Joy are both co-authors on here, however, their contributions are few and far between, sigh.

So it falls to me to commemorate this momentous occasion. In true blogger tradition, that means it is.....................

GIVEAWAY time, woohoo!

Now I need to explain this GIVEAWAY a little bit. One of my lovely followers has told me off for not having a Followers thingy in my sidebar ( didn't really tell me off, lol, but told me it would be a good idea ). So, this is what I plan to do. I am starting the GIVEAWAY with the following bits and pieces -

a length of old cotton lace

a long length of fab pink and white polka dot ribbon

a lavender sack made from 19th Century French ticking fabric and handloomed linen, filled with English lavender

a crocheted corsage decorated with Lucite flowers

a La Croix Rosion facial scrub ( dry, so preservative free )


Then.....................

I am going to put up one of those followers thingies ( hopefully, lol, I am somewhat challenged when it comes to stuff like that ) and for every person who joins there after this post is published ( after the 20 already on there, that is ), I will add something else to the GIVEAWAY stash. It might be a set of buttons, a vintage postcard, a handmade soap, a single huge button, more lace, vintage fabric............. who knows? I'll keep this going for the rest of this week, and then will draw a winner out of ALL THE FOLLOWERS next Monday morning. Not too difficult, is it?

I got myself all excited now, lol, so I had better go get a cup of tea and then try and install that followers gadget.

UPDATE - Floss wanted to put a link into her sidebar, which is of course a great idea, and something I should have thought of, arrgghhh. Still, only just started, so its not too late yet to remedy that. I made a little button for you gals to use if you would like to put it in your sidebar. And for that you get entered into the giveaway draw again!


Now I am off to find three more things to add to the stash.
