100th Post Celebration!

Well, here we are! My 100th post! I'm honestly amazed that I'm here - and truly amazed that you're here! You do honor me with your visits, your encouragement and kind comments. I want to thank Susan of "Between Naps On The Porch" for being my bloggy mid-wife -- I know that she's helped many of us give birth to blogs. I also want to thank Kathy of "Life In The Slow Lane" for giving me a whole new look just in time for my 100th post (now if I could only get a personal make-over too!) To make this a fun celebration in the tradition of blogging I have some give-aways for you who have made me so welcome in the blogging neighborhood. I have five small tokins of appreciation that I'm giving away - hopefully one or two will suit your fancy.


#1 Celebration Gift is:

This cute little basket I recently found. I thought it would be cute holding napkins or silverware for a buffet...or perhaps holding fingertip towels in a guest bath...on your desk for pens and pencils...how will you want to use it?


Celebration gift #2 is:
...a pair of "Virginia Is For Lovers" glasses -- now I realize that there will be limitations of who would want these. But I know there are some Virginia bloggers out there ... these are perfect for iced tea or gin & tonics .... perhaps you honeymooned in Virginia (We did - Williamsburg) -- or took a special anniversary trip to Virginia (or would like to plan one!) There's much to do here and I would love to know your special memories attached to Virginia if you decide you'd like these glasses. My next tablescape is going to be Virginia themed.


Celebration gift #3 is:
This adorable tassel. I loved the colors and little blue birds on this. I hope you will too!



Celebration gift #4 is:
....these four little French inspired plates, perfect for your next wine and cheese party....or a French themed kitchen.
Plate #1
Plate #2
Plate #3
Plate #4 ... yes you get all four and I have no idea what they say....but I'm sure some of you do.


Celebration gift #5 is:
One of the wine bottle lights I recently tablescaped with. You have your choice between this one with the red and gold tassel or...

This one with the green and gold tassel.

Here's a picture of how it looks plugged in and lit up.

All you have to do to enter to win any of these gifts is to make a comment on this post. Please indicate which gift or gifts you would like to receive by their # -- and you can certainly enter for all five if you like! If you win the bottle light, you'll have your choice of red or green tassel. If you are a follower, you'll have your name entered twice. It's that simple! I'll announce the winners on Saturday October 17th to give you plenty of time to comment. I wish I had something for each of you, because you've been so wonderful! Thanks for making Mid-Atlantic Martha such a fun experience for me and I hope you'll keep visiting often!

See ya!

Edit: Silly me! I didn't mean to post this until Friday -- oh well - that gives you two extra days to comment!

  20. Congratulations on this fine blogging milestone! Your gifts are each so lovely.

    Virginia has a special place in my heart since I attended a computer conference there in 1995. In addition my late eldest brother is in the Columbarium at Arlington Cemetery. My niece and her family visited there from Florida in August.

  21. Wow... 100 posts. Don't know if I will make it as I take me HOURS with each post (is Blogger or is it me?).

    Not only does the set up take time but then I have so many pictures...but mostly I am still having problems getting the format fight (lol, that was a misprint, meant to type "right" but I think I will have to leave it!).

    I then try to have time to visit and read everyones blogs... and I am always adding more to the list!

    Oh, how I LOVE to read the blogs.

    Thanks for visiting me and for your kind comment.

    p.s. If I am so lucky to win... I just want to enter for the little basket with the flowers as it goes with my decor the best. I don't want to be greedy.

  39. Ohhh Martha! Love the new look!It's really you.
    I'm a hit and run on your site, but I love those VA is for Lovers glasses. I didn't see a disclaimer saying family members are ineligible.

    I love seeing all the cool things you bought at the beach. Can't imagine how we lived there so many years and never even heard of the Ragged Rabbit.

    Maybe in 6-12 months we can do the makeover thing together!

  51. What a fun idea to share your bounty besides your fun blog. Congratulations on your 100th post!

    I have had all three of our sons living in Virginia and 7 little grandchildren. It has been our vacation of choice twice a year to visit our little ones and our kids. We have grown to love this beautiful state and if it is not too late, I would love to win NUMBER 2!
    We still have a son in dental school in the Richmond area. Our son who lived outside DC in Ashburn moved back out west last year to set up a practice in Optometry. They couldn't afford to buy a house there!
    I bet the leaves are gorgeous right now.
    I might be a gal in Utah just loving Virginia!

    Then #4 would be a great surprise to recieve as my husband lived in Paris for 2 years...
