There's No Place Like Home (Giveaway)


We've been around the world, to Asia, to Europe and traveled in the United States. But one of my blog readers -- who asked to remain nameless -- suggested it was time to click my ruby red slippers and come home. Not having ruby red slippers -- they just don't work with orthotics -- I clicked and clicked my pink and white sneakers (sneakers take a lot of clicking) and now we are back in New York City.

I am happy to be home and so happy that I am running a quick, quick giveaway. It's a little gift from BlogHer  that will be awarded to the one of the people to correctly name the bridge in the background of this picture. I will announce the winner on Monday evening and entries close at 11:59 on Sunday, August 19th. If no one is correct I will randomly pick a name from folks who comment. This is only open to those living outside of New York City. As a clue, this photo is about ten miles from where I live in Manhattan.

It is a beautiful day today, sunny and not too hot. I've got few plans and look forward to walking as much as I can, doing a little grocery shopping and taking my kindle to read outside. I'll be taking pictures to share what a leisurely summer Saturday in New York looks like a la Buttercup.

Wishes for a sweet Saturday!

Love your sense of humor! Ya, the next time I put on sneakers, I'll probably be attempting a heel-click. :)

I've absolutely NO idea re. this bridge's identity, but will guess the 59th Street. (Only on account I used to love Harper's Bizarre's "Bridge Song.")

Wishing you a delightful afternoon!

Oh, my! I have no idea - unless it's the Brooklyn Bridge?!? I'm just not good about New York City landmarks.

We've been away - literally - for a few days, so I have some catching up to do.:)

My hubby used to live in Connecticut and traveled to New York frequently. He thinks it's the Williamsburg Bridge too??? Me, I haven't a clue.

Catherine said...

I know the entry is over but I would like to guess anyway, for the fun of it. I will guess the Brooklyn Bridge. Blessings Buttercup, Catherine
