100+ Follower's Celebration!

Sometimes you wonder if anyone
 really reads your blog. ???
I know a few fellow bloggers do for they
 always leave nice comments for me! 

At our Holiday Open House and the 
show at the Qwest I had several people 
" I love reading your blog & your website!"

Wow... really!?
Sometimes when I press the 
"publish" button,  it's just like putting my
words & life's happenings in a diary that's stored in air.
Not really thinking that many are going to read it
... but, in fact many do! 

104+ do...
I've been so busy with the shows that I didn't 
notice that my blog has reached over 
ONE HUNDRED followers! 
I think it is time to celebrate with a 
surprise giveaway! 

Do you decorate more with 
SNoWmeN or SaNtAs for the Holidays?

Answer this question to
be entered for a chance to win a
Whistle Stop holiday SURPRISE!
Let people know about the give away
on your blog and I'll enter you twice!

Last day to enter
Friday, November 19th! 
Drawing will be held
Saturday, November 20th! 


  1. Oh wonderful. Congratulations on 104 followers. Well deserved :) I am a snowman kinda girl. I love Santas too but definitely more snowmen :)
    This will be fun!! :)

  2. I probably have a few more snowmen than Santas.

    Congratulations on surpassing 100 followers!!

  3. Congrats on reaching 100+. Just recently happened on your blog through a link from someone elses and enjoy it a great deal. More santas probably, although a pretty good mix of both.

  4. Congratulations of 100+ followers.
    I am happy to be one of them!!

    I would say, I have more Santa's than Snowmen.
    Only because I collect vintage stuffed Santa dolls. But I do enjoy Both!! :)

    Thanks so much,

    Prim Blessings,

  18. I just found your blog, also through Pine Tree Prims, and love it! It IS exciting to reach 100 followers - I just did too. I think I may have more santas than snowmen, although I love both. There are so many way you can do a santas.
    I'm also going to post this on my blog. Congratulations again and thanks for offering this giveaway. I'm also having a giveaway so why not hop on over and ends Wednesday so hurry.

  19. Hi there! I am new to your blog. Congrats on so many followers! I came from Pine Tree Prims too!

    I am a snowman gal. I like Santas too, but am more drawn to those white snowy guys and gals. My favorite ornament is a little stuffed snowman. I don't remember where it came from. :)

  20. Congratulations on your followers.
    I am having a giveaway too and finally hit 100 myself.
    I like snowmen more than santas, but I do have some vintage ones that I like.


  21. Congrats on all your followers. I love snowmen. I like Santas to but there is just something about smowmen.

  22. Congrats and thank you dearly for the offering!!! If you had asked me before yesterday I would have said DEFINATELY Santa...they are all over and I adore that "Coca Cola" style Santa...but I began to decorate yesterday and realize that I have a little gathering of snowmen that has been creeping up on me...and you know what? That is just fine too! :o)

  23. What a privelage it was to meet you a couple of months ago and have enjoyed following your blog ever since! Congrats on your blog and 104 plus followers.
    I am probably more of a snowman but in all actuality, I'm a lover of old Christmas balls/ ornaments. I seriously get so excited when I find a new ornament at the thrift store or antique store... It's bad...really bad my fettish for these little glistening pieces of art.

  24. Congrats on 100+ followers! Add me to your list of followers as well.

    Well, since you asked, I suppose if I had to choose which I decorate more with - snowmen or Santa - it's probably snowmen. It's a close call, though, since I love both of them.

    I'm putting a link to your giveaway on my sidebar.


  25. Congrats on reaching 100+ followers. I really enjoyed visiting your shop during your open house. I decorate w/more snowmen. I like that I can leave them up all winter long.

  26. A surprise? Oh no, I'm not good with surprises. When I was a little kid, I was the one who tried to get a peek at what was in the presents under the tree. I know, bad little girl. I would still like to be entered in your giveaway, please.
    Congratulations on reaching over 100 followers! I am now one of them.
    I will post this on my sidebar.
    I am definately a snowman collector.
    You sure you can't give me a little peek? LOL


  27. Though I have about the same amount of both I LOVE snowman! What can I say, I take after Mom! :)

  28. Hi there!

  36. Wow, congratulations on 100 followers! I am sure that number will keep on jumping.

    We love snowmen around here (maybe because we never get enough snow to actually make any real ones?!).
