Anniversary GiveAway!

I would like to send each of YOU, my followers, a personal hand-written Thank You note and explain what you mean to me for this past year. I have had so much wonderful feedback from you on all my projects from little to large. It really feels good to know that others appreciate what I do and maybe I have even inspired YOU to do the same.

On November 14th, I will celebrate ONE YEAR of my Forever Decorating! blog website. I went from one follower to 877, over 424,500 page-views and 245 posts. I am so amazed at those numbers. And, it has been the sweetest year of gaining personal friendships with YOU.

To celebrate this occasion, I am offering a GiveAway to one of my lucky followers!  I have selected a vintage embroidery dresser scarf,
The sweetest rose teacup along with a selection of teas and coffees for you to enjoy.
All laid on a large wooden tray that I hand-painted with the word EAT.
To enter, You Must Be A Follower of Forever Decorating! Then just comment on this post. (And don't forget to leave your email address if you don't have a blog so I can get in touch with you to get your mailing address if you are chosen the winner.)
I will select with random draw, the winner on my one year anniversary (Nov. 14).
It's as easy as that!!!

NOTE: You should be able to click on most of the pictures to enlarge to see further details.
