Day 5

The winner was number 17 - Marydon - who gave her play to dear Ginny - so Ginny - send me your address! Congrats

The winner of the Martha Steward Pillow is Ginny.

Thank you for following!

DAY 5

Okay how is this works?

Leave one answer per comment - you can have up to three comments/chances a day to win a day. I'll pick a number daily at 11 pm giving every one a chance to leave a comment/comments.

Now here is how to get three chances.

1. You get one chance if you are a follower.

2. If you are a follower - in a whole new comment - tell me what you life about blogging - what GOOD have you gotten out of it.

3. You get a third chance if you are a follower and you mention my giveaway on your blog.

Easy Peasy.

Okay - what is the prize for today?

5. A brand new Vera Bradley bag. (And it is large like a regular one).




Thought for the day:

God has a great race for you to run, Under His care, you'll go where you've never been and serve in ways you've never dreamed. But you have to release your burdens.

Max Lucado

I'm not playing, just stopping by to say hello and how generous you are for giving away all those wonderful gifts. You are making your followers very, very happy with these lovely items.

Thank you and have a great day tomorrow! I'm going to sleep - finally!

That corgi :) said...

its is funny, Sandie, you must be scheduling these to post because I've been able to be your first commenter a few days this week with the giveaway!

another great Max Lucado quote!

Another reason why blogging is good for me; it is good for the memory; helps me to remember details about people, etc so it has to be good for the brain!

The part about releasing the burdens is the biggie for me. I want to go forward, but I have such a time letting go of what is weighing me down. Sigh.

I'm a follower. Another reason I love blogging is all the wonderful people I'm am meeting - who are becoming friends!

Pondside said...

Well, of course I'm a follower, and I love that bag!

Pondside said...

The GOOD from blogging?....where to start? I'd say that the friendships are the biggest thing - I've met several bloggers face to face, here and far away (in Peru!) and it has been a wonderful experience each time. When my husband was so terribly ill in the winter the prayers of bloggers I'll probably never meet held me up in the most amazing way.

Ginny said...

Thank you so much, Sandie! And a big thank you to Marydon, this is very thoughtful and generous of her!!!
