Now We Are Six...Buttercupland Blogaversary and Giveaway


Last summer there was an exhibition of children's literature at the New York Public Library. I took lots of pictures and planned to do a post about it. But other things came up and the post didn't get written. But I saved the pictures and to celebrate the sixth blogaversary of Buttercupland I am featuring my friends from Pooh Corner and the wonderful poem, Now We Are Six.

 A.A. Milne celebrates being six with the thought, "But now I am six I'm as clever as clever. So I think I will be six forever and ever." I don't feel especially clever, but I do feel very good for six years of blogging. Six years! On a cold day in January 2009 I didn't dream the wonderful things that would come with blogging and I won't begin to predict the next six years -- at least! Many thanks to the fabulous friends around the world who have enriched my life more than I can describe. It's been a great six years, and I raise a toast to the years to come.

We can't have a celebration without presents and I'm doing a giveaway. It's not the usual, but rather a year of six -- for six years of blogging -- surprises. Six times in 2015 I'm going to send a surprise. It may be a holiday card or candy or a book or some other treat that catches my eye. Just leave a comment with an idea for a surprise and you're in the giveaway. You don't even have to be a friend of Buttercupland, but don't you want to!  

More than ever, thanks for visiting and take very good care!

I love "Pooh"! My boys loved him when they were little. Our oldest had Pooh, Tigger and Eeyore decorating one of his nursery walls. Thanks for that nice memory today. Anything fun, but unexpected, makes the nicest of surprises. Congratulations on six years in blogging!!

Best,
Bonnie
