Merci Beaucoup!!


How and why?? you ask??

This month represents the one year anniversary since I started my blog.
I thought it would be fun to do something special to say thank you..or as the french would say....
Merci Beaucoup!!!
to all the wonderful people who have supported me and followed me through my adventures over the last year....

In celebration .. I have decided to give away something really great!!!
Can you guess what it is...


Well I'm not ready to tell you yet!!  But I promise you will love it....

The rules are simple!!
1-you have to be in the USA...(due to shipping costs)
2-You have to leave a comment. (For every comment you leave from Feb. 24, through March 15. you will be entered into the drawing...)

If you share this on your blog or facebook, it will count as 2 entries. (just let me know by leaving a comment)
Don't forget to become a follower (so you can keep checking back for updates and clues).

I will be adding pictures and clues periodically in my postings. So don't forget to come back and visit often over the next two weeks!!!!


I would love to hear your best guess..


Here are some new clues.......
added March 3rd!!

HI! Thanks for stopping by!! I loved your blog also, and am also addicted to all things toile!!! I have acquired most of mine from antique shops and flea markets. I try not to go crazy spending money on them, but my husband said at one time when I owned about 25 I was driving the market up!! loL!! now I really try to control myself, but ugh!!! I just really can't seem to walk away from one...Luckily I haven't seen any around lately!!!

Congratulations!!! I have a guess what this might be. I think it goes on the neck of your mannequin? Then it gets topped off with a doodad. That's what I GUESS.
