Anniversary Giveaway




Thoughts From MEME's Corner has been in the blogging family one year today. Time does fly when you are having fun. I have truly had fun for the past year. What a joy it has been. Coloradolady exposed me to a world I never knew existed. I did not even know what a blog was still she set it up and told me to get with it. The year has had its challenges, with a lot of ups and downs, but I survived. In fact, I had my doubts if I would ever get one blog published. As of this day, I have published 251. Miracles do happen, For the first time in my life, used a digital camera. Now I am addicted to it. By mistake, just this past week, I learned how to video with it.

Where else could I have made so many friends and seen so much around the world except at Bloggerville. I thank all of you for your kindness and help in this endeavor. All your support and visits meant a lot to me. I truly enjoy your comments. They make my day. I can never express my appreciation that so many of you choose to follower my blog. I am so grateful.


In a small way to show my appreciation, I having my first giveaway in honor of this special day. This a metal birdhouse, trimmed in grapevines. It has two chain links on the top for hanging. This is the front.

A side view.

This beautiful yellow rose bloomed today in my yard just for my special occasion. This old yellow rose of Texas is planning on blogging right along.

All you need to do in order to be in the drawing for this giveaway is leave a comment on this post. You will have today through May 2nd to enter for the giveaway. Monday May 3,the computer will conduct the drawing. On Tuesday May 4th, the winner will be announced on a post for that day.

The bird house is just adorable and your yellow rose is gorgeous!
Keep up the great work - I know I've really enjoyed your posts whenever I get a chance to stop by!!!

Congratulations! I think it so uplifting for a "senior" citizen to do what you have accomplished. I try to get my mother involved with blogging, but I get the 'deer in the headlights' look everytime I do. Again, Congratulations!

Little did I know I what a journey this would have been. I never thought for half a minute that you would even want one...just thought maybe if I made a blog it might stir some interest! LITTLE DID I KNOW!!

It is amazing and you are a true example that age does not matter, you CAN learn something new if you set your mind to it and WANT to learn it. That is what happens to older people who have a inner drive...they get things done!

It is the ones who say "I can't" and don't even really give an effort to things that lose out in this life...and I sincerely mean that...there are no excuses, it can be done if you want too!! You can do it!!! And you are certainly a marvelous example of that!!

I am proud of you!! You are such an inspiration to so many....and how lucky I AM, that you are my Aunt!!! I can hardly wait for what lies in store for this next year!! Happy Blog Anniversary!!!
