OWOH Extravaganza . . .

Whenever I see people playing something that looks really fun, I want to play too! I discovered this delightful event last year and visited blog after fabulous blog. I made some bloggy friends that I have kept all year and I even won a couple of fantastic creations!  The purpose of my blogging is to meet like-minded bloggers who inspire me. I'm always delighted with their creativity, artistic abilities and, of course, their junky ways of decorating!  Since this is the final year, I just HAVE to participate again!

This is where is all began -- the creative mind of Lisa of A Whimsical Bohemian has convinced bloggers all over the world (yes, world!) to offer their wares in giveaways open to all active bloggers. The purpose is to have a chance to meet new bloggers, get lots of friends, see what they offer and find kindred spirits that love the same things you do! There are no hoops to jump through to play along. Nobody needs to become a follower. Nobody needs to look at etsy shops and pick a favorite item. Nobody has to answer specific questions in their comments. All you have to do is leave some kind of comment (preferably a nice one!) and an email address so that you can be reached in case you win! Now, doesn't that sound easy and fun! I am lovin it!
To read all about One World One Heart and how it began (or if you too would like to join in the event), please go here.

This is my offering for the event.  A small shabby, ruffly wreath!  It could be hanging on your wall or gracing your table if you want to play along. 

Just leave me a comment!  Yup!  That is all you have to do!  Comments must be left on THIS POST ONLY!  Oh, you can leave me oodles of comments on any other post but for the OWOH giveaway - only this post will count.

Any do-dads embellishing the wreath are not included in the prize.  Just displaying some different looks!

The OWOH event will end on February 17th, when all winners are chosen and contacted.  So leave me a comment.  If your blog doesn't have an email contact button, leave me your addy (ya can't win if I can't find you!).  There are hundreds (if not thousands!) of bloggers that are playing along.  Go to the list, settle in for a long stint at the computer and comment, comment, comment!

I can't wait to meet you!


Trisha said...

Donna said...

Oh, how pretty! The random number generator will never, ever pick #1, now will it? LOL. I've been wanting to participate in that and had every intention of doing it this year. Not now with my working schedule! I hope that you get a lot of visitors and make some new friends!

Just under the finish line but I wanted to pop over and say how very much I appreciated you sweet comment on my blog during this wonderful tour around the world.
I'm so loving the feel of your blog. What a totally unique lampshade you've created. I can tell that I will need a cup of tea and a lot more time to be able to absorb all the wonders of your world here. It is a pleasure to meet you Connie and I promise that I will be back soon to visit with you again.

Wandering about a few more blogs before the deadline, although most folk have already ended their giveaways. Still, it's fun to meet new bloggers. I adore the sidebar photo you have that says "Act Old Later" - is it your photo? If so, would you mind if I shared it with my Facebook friends? It's so cute and clever. I've postponed being old indefinitely. Got too much to do to let an pile of old birthdays get in my way. :)
