Come out, come out, whoever you are!

Today I'm participating in a blogland De-Lurk day w/ Jan @ Jan & Tom's Place. And to entice you into coming out of de-lurk mode, I'm having a drawing out of today's comments & the winner will receive this beautiful pansy painting. It's a 9" by 12" on board...unsigned.

If you'd like a chance to win this lovely painting, then leave a comment on this post & I'll have one of my helpers/grands draw the name next week. I know that not everyone visits every day so I'll leave it open through the weekend but you must make the comment on this post. You do not need to have a blog to leave a comment but there must be some way of contacting you if you win. And sorry, but I cannot afford to pay international shipping so the give-away is restricted to the continental US.

Good luck! And nice to meet you!!!!

Also I have a meme from HoneyB @ The Life & Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch. The idea is to show the commenters on your blogs that you value their comments so I thought thsi would be a good post to add it to.

The rules:

1. List the last ten people who have commented on your blog

2. If you’re on my list then you should do the meme on your blog too

10 Blogs, 15 Questions.

1.Dresden Plate @ Dresden Plate

2.Tam @ Yakiddy Yak Yak

3.Megan from Megan's Cooking

4.Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch

5.Miss Janice @ Etiquette w/ Miss Janice

6.Jan @ Jan & Tom's Place

7.Honey B @ The Life & Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch

8.Laurie @ Bargain Hunting w/ Laurie

9.Teresa @ Southern Touch Catering

10.Liz from Rose Vignettes

2. Has number 10 taken any pictures that have moved you? Oh yeah, I was moved to have a progressive tea party ;o)

3. Does number 6 reply to comments on their blog? I'm sure she does...she's very friendly

4. Which part of blogland is number 2 from? the beautiful Northwest.

5. If you could give one piece of advice to number 7 what would it be? To maintain that sweet disposition she has...she spreads a lot of cheer

6. Have you ever tried something from number 9’s blog? she just visited my blog today & I haven't had a chance to get to know her blog yet

7. Has number 1 blogged something that inspired you? she posted a pillow on a Rose Wednesday post that makes me want to learn how to do ribbon embroidery

8. How often do you comment on number 4’s blog? probably a couple times a week

9. Do you wait for number 8 to post excitedly? Yes! I love her Tablescape Tuesday entries!

10. How did number 5’s blog change your life? Well I don't know if it's changed my life ;o) but I enjoy her blog. It's elegant & beautiful!

11. Do you know any of the 10 bloggers in person? Not really in person but HoneyB (she's Shelby to me because I'm Honey LOL) & I were foruming together on a cooking forum before either of us started blogging. We connected through our reviews on allrecipes & we've been friends ever since. My "cooking friends" were a huge support to me during my son's hospital stay. They surprised me w/ flowers @ my hotel room & even cocktail fixin's because they know me so well. ;o) They're good people!

12. Do any of your 10 bloggers know each other in person? I don't think so

13. Out of the 10, which updates more frequently? Jan

14. Which of the 10 keep you laughing?Honey B...her tales of Grumpy are a hoot!

Hi Cami!
I love that little picture! You will get a ton of comments on this post, I bet!

I have been tagged so I tagged you. You don't have to play if you don't want to but zip over to my blog when you get a chance to see the rules.


Megan said...

What a lovely picture. Throw my name in the bucket please.

Peggy said...

Hi Cami, Don't you just love blogland? You never know who is reading. come on over to season-to-season.blogspot.com and visit. Actually I'm passed 400 posts and have loved it. I don't get a lot of traffic since it's private, but I love a comment when I get one. I have found that the women who blog are generous with their help and live such interesting lives. Keep blogging!

I'm fairly new to lurking at your blog, but enjoy myself immensely. I would love to own that Pansy painting. Tell those grandkids to think Sally!!!

Katie @ makingthishome.com said...

Okay, okay. I lurk. You're all pulling me out of the trees today! Your painting is beautiful, and congrats on your little award. So much to share!
But don't you go disqualifying me because I blog from Germany. I'm coming home for the holidays; I feel like a song.
