There's a party going on right now...
We're celebrating the seventh blogaversary of Buttercupland. It's seven years and one week after I started blogging in 2009, and my goal is very much the same as it was on that cold winter night. I wanted to "see myself and the world in a happier and more upbeat way." The world seems equally gloomy tonight, but thanks to the friends I've met around the world -- I get a little (good) chill when I write this -- I'm helped daily to see the world in a kinder light.
In 2010 I wrote "Here's to 2010 and all the friendship and wonder and surprises that are yet to be discovered." I echo this tonight. Here's to 2016 and to my friends from 2009 and to the bloggers I met just last week, thank you. If you're a visitor and haven't left a comment before, please don't be shy. It all starts with a comment. And now, enough of the speeches, let's party!
It wouldn't be a party without presents, but tonight the presents are for the good citizens of Buttercupland, and it's a book giveaway. It's actually a trio of book giveaways.
For crafty Citizens of Buttercupland...
I think this would be perfect for cold winter afternoons,
for those who love to sew.
I'm also going to give out a surprise cookbook and a surprise novel. I have several cookbooks in mind, but if you're interested in fiction, please let me know what kind of books you enjoy and I will choose one for you. It's the usual easy-peasy entry. Please be a friend on BlogLovin, Google Connect or Google+. For this giveaway, I'm also including Facebook friends who leave a comment. The more the merrier. I'll let the winners know on Sunday, January 31. And thanks, for joining in the fun.
I wouldn't have had these seven years of blog happiness without all of you. Thank you, thank you and thank you!
