700th Post Celebration and Giveaway!



When I looked at my blog’s statistics the other day, I could have sworn that I was going to be celebrating my 600th post anniversary. I was wrong! I’ve reached a milestone of 700 posts! Gracious, that’s a whole lot of writing and photographs. For my long-time friends, thanks for hanging in there with me all these years. For my newer friends, thanks for finding my little corner in cyberspace. I plan to keep on blogging and making it interesting. This is where I hang out to share tidbits about our cottage life and travels, and I intend to remain here for a long time to come.

For this celebration, I’m offering a special giveaway and featuring a special blogging friend, Farmgirl Cyn! She started a selling blog recently called Farm Fresh. It features a delightful selection of handcrafted bar soaps, laundry soap, ointments/salves, and finishing salts/rubs. (Teas and infusions will be available later.) 





I bought some Farm Fresh bar soaps, and I have been absolutely thrilled with their heavenly scents and gentleness. Farmgirl Cyn has a passion for creating healthy alternatives to commercial products, and she uses the finest ingredients to meet her high standards. 





I want to help spread the word about her wonderful products. Please visit Farm Fresh, have a look around, and consider placing an order! And if you are the lucky giveaway winner, I'm going to order for you! You'll be able to choose a set of products up to a $25 allowance. 

Here’s how to get your name in the proverbial hat to win some Farm Fresh products: 
  1. For one entry, leave a comment on this post and tell me what product line you would like to win (bar soaps, laundry soap, ointments/salves, or finishing salts/rubs). 
  2. For a second entry, leave another comment if you are one of my blog followers.
  3. For a third entry, publish a post about this giveaway or put a picture link on your blog’s sidebar. Then leave another comment that indicates you accomplished this task.
  4. Because of shipping costs, the giveaway is limited to U.S. addresses only. (Sorry, international friends!) Also, only entries from bloggers with active web sites will be eligible for the drawing. 
The last day to enter the giveaway is Sunday, June 17. Good luck, everyone! And thank you for your friendships and joining me in celebrating 700 posts!

  4. Oh what a fun giveaway. It's right up my healthy alley. LOL!
    And congrats on the 700 posts my friend. I'm pretty sure I've been around for over 600 of them.
    I took a look around the Farm Fresh website and it's a toss up between the soaps and the salves. But everything looks great.
    Have a lovely day!!
