HAPPY FALL, Y'ALL!

You can ask any of my friends...
I have been so excited that we are actually having a Fall season this year!!! I do realize that technically there is a Fall season every year, we just don't usually actually have one in my area. The last several years it has gone from being very warm to very cold, without those gloriously crisp days in between!

To celebrate the wonderful nip in the morning air and the cozy warmth in the afternoon and the falling leaves and of course the all around "glorious crispness", Shannon from Rocks In My Dryer is holding a Fall, Y'all! Bloggy Giveaway at her Bloggy Giveaways blog, and I am participating!

I will be giving away at least one hand painted personalized clipboard, similar to my personal clipboard which is featured below. The name you choose, your initial, and no "x boxes".

~~~~This is the back!~~~~
However...I encourage you to check back each day because additional items may be posted and up for grabs! AND...if you're so inclined, comment on other posts, as I have a few surprise gifts hidden throughout this blog. Commenting must pertain to the blog entry to qualify!
  • One will be determined by a specific predetermined comment number on an individual entry other than this one. This is not a specific blog entry, just a specific comment number. If that number is reached, and you are the lucky commenter, yea for you! You get a prize! I'm thinking big, people! **Comment number must be reached for prize to be awarded!
  • One will be drawn from all of the comments dated October 29 and on for a predetermined blog entry. Previous comments will not qualify. There are not many entries prior to this one. Take a shot at finding the right one! This is a specific blog entry, and it could be anywhere between here and the beginning of this blog! There are some lonely little posts out there waiting! **There must be a comment on the chosen entry for a prize to be awarded!
So find some entries that sound interesting, and read away! Be sure to comment! And please...be sure and leave a way for me to contact you if you win!!!

Until I win the lottery, or Mr. Brownstone gets a raise, this contest is only open to those with addresses in the United States and Canada. To all of the non-United States and non-Canadian readers...thank you for stopping by, and I sincerely hope you'll visit again. Next time I'll try to be better prepared financially, and I might host a giveaway solely for y'all to make up for this one!

To see all of the other entries, please click the cute Fall, Y'all! Bloggy Giveaway button in my sidebar! Isn't it so pretty? IT'S FALL, Y'ALL! And I couldn't be more excited! You can also visit by clicking right
here. However, the button is much cuter, so if I were you, I'd click it instead! :)
***Button removed after end of contest.

That clipboard is just the thing to help me keep my kitchen organized...and keep from important school papers getting mixed around! It would probably make my hubby happy too...because then I would be some sort of "organized"!
