Playing around with the computer today – and I started another blog – just what I need – more distraction!!!!! Blogspot is supposed to be a very active blog site- we shall see…………………………….

The new one will be just for my creations- maybe it will spur me on to get that studio in order and get busy!!!!

I hope to show off friend’s creations and my own.

So become a ‘follower’ – check it out-

There is also a link on my blogroll.

AND< don’t forget – tonite is the last night to leave a comment on my 1 year blogiversary post – to be entered in the drawing!!! Winner will be picked tomorrow – Valentine’s Day!!!!!

All is well at Mountain Meadows tonite………………….

I can now show what Dionne ( won in my 500th comment random giveaway not too long ago. She received her package, so I won’t be spoiling the surprise by showing it!!! (Sorry for the slightly out of  focus shot!)


The mug is from a local pottery in nearby Broadway, Va – Bay Pottery, the tea infuser is from A Chapped Chick- her link is in my blogroll, and 4 fat quarters tied with some vintage violets. Enjoy, Dionne!!!

My next giveaway, (and last one for quite a while!) is to celebrate my one year anniversary!!!!! I can’t believe Patty ( got me into blogging one year ago today!!!

So, leave a comment on this post from now til Friday nite – Friday the 13th!!! On Valentine’s Day, Saturday, February 14th (my mom’s 80th birthday), I will let Mom randomly  choose a winner from all who left a comment!

Thanks to all who read me – and hope you will continue to do so…..


All is well at Mountain Meadows tonite……………….

I just noticed I am now on my 201st post!!! I should have had a giveaway!!!

Guess  I wasn’t paying attention!!

But, what I WILL do, is have a GIVEAWAY CONTEST when I reach my 500th comment!!!

Right now I am at comment 479! When I receive my 500th comment – I will have the random number picker choose a winner from all the names who have commented -from comment # 480 thru comment#500.

Leave your comment at the end of this post – it shouldn’t take too long to reach my goal——only 20 comments to go!!!

Now, off I go to figure out what the prize will be!!!!

PS- I just realized – February 10th marks my one year blogiversary!!!!! Time flies – so keep checking back – I will have another giveaway celebrating my one year of blogging!!!!


All is well at Mountain Meadows, waiting for some more snow………..!!!!

The winner of the Christmas Memories Giveaway has been chosen by the Custom Random Number Picker!!!

Drum roll please………………………………………It is Lucky # 7 – Lisa C!!!!!!!!!!

 If I don’t hear back from her in a reasonable amount of time, we will let the random number selector pick again-but I’m sure she won’t want to miss out on her goodie box!!! 

Congratulations Lisa!! And thanks for the memories (as Bob Hope used to say!) and for reading my words!!! I appreciate everyone sharing their memories about the holidays, both poignant and sweet- I wish everyone could win!!!

Keep checking back – there will be another giveaway around the first of the year, or my 500th comment, whichever comes first!! And my 1 year blogaversary is coming up in February, so that would be another good reason for a giveaway!!!!


All is well and foggy this first day of December, at Mountain Meadows……………………….
