~100th Post, and a Giveaway~

These are just a few of the things we have shared together over the last 100 posts.

My candy store idea.
This is still happening.
I made some more decisions yesterday.
I have my Etsy shop name.
I would tell ya what it is but it's going to be a surprise.
Along with another giveaway~
You have allowed me to cook dinner for you!
You have allowed me to brag about some of my Goodwill finds~
How about all the redecorating we have done together.

Just think of all the Fridays we have shared.

We have even done some reupholstering together.

Boy, have we become fast friends.
It is times like this that I have to pinch myself to remind me that this whole thing is real.
This has been such a fun road.
I love that we are all riding this road together.

So...........In honor of my 100th post I am giving away Two(2) $50 shopping sprees to my Etsy store, Maisy's Market.

All you have to do is comment on something you liked, thought was funny or both!

No strings attached.
You don't have to mention it...
You don't have to follow...
You don't have to link!
If you want to you certainly can but it's up to you.

I will close this out on Thursday night.
The winners will be announced on Friday morning.

This is just a big FAT thank you for being here for me.
For being the ones that fill me up.

**Did you all know that Lost is having it's 100th episode this week...coincidence or do you think its the island....*

Amy...congratulations on 100 posts...what an accomplishment.
My favorite moment was when I first met you and you became my first follower and I just felt like we were meant to be friends. It has been a lot of fun learning all this-- with you by me all the way.
thanks for all your help.

Donna said...

McKay Family said...

Congrats on your 100th post! Recently, I especially loved the Shabby Chic post...especially the part about not being able to take a photo inside the store. As a photog, I found that interesting and it always annoys me when I can't take a pic...especially since I know it's just going in my scrapbook and I'm not selling it anywhere. I also found it funny since the darn store is closing anyway!

Anonymous said...

Melissa said...

The Kramer Angle said...

Time flies!

My favorite Maisy post? When you announced you were going to open a candy shop on Etsy! It's all about following your dream! Loved it.


Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Congrats! 100th post is a huge milestone!! LOVE the name you chose for your ETSY shop. That blue polka dot jar is a cutie pie!!!


Loralee and the gang... said...

I have loved reading your blog - I found it not so long ago, but I am hooked - I like your take on things. Makes me laugh sometimes! And I didn't know that Shabby Chic stores were going away! I never even had the chance to go into one...
My favorite is the chair we reupholstered together. . . well, virtually, as they say. . .
and I totally blasted past MY 100th post. Now I have to come up with some reason to celebrate, say, the 128th post, or whatever. Or maybe I'll just wait til 150 or 200 comes up. Who knows? I'll surprise everyone, even myself~

What first caught my interest was the Maisy name...then I was intrigued by your what-I-didn't-do posts...and I laughed at your true-to-life photo of your kitchen during Easter preparations...and it's always fun to see your thrift treasures.

Katie said...

Congratulations Maisy! I love reading your blog and it always brings me a smile :)

Obviously I love the white mugs that I've already purchased, but I'm totally lusting after the milks vase(es), the bird mugs, and the flower metal candle. haha, just to name a few.


♥ miss.michelle said...

...what a fun way to celebrate!

Please, count me in!

You have a great sense of humor & it shows in your posts, thanks for sharing Maisy's world with us :)

I LOVE that you closed this with a LOST reference. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Lost.

Your posts are always so fun, diverse and have such a sweet wit about them - I am guaranteed a smile when I read your blog. LOVE THAT ABOUT YOU!

Just know we'd be great friends if we lived in the same state! sigh.....I'm grateful for what we've got now!

100th post, you go Amy! Congrats...love your sense of humor and your witty blog posts!

Christina said...

I've enjoyed your posts so much. I love your finds and wonder how you can part with so many wonderful things through you Etsy store. My favorite though, may have been the post where you talked about the candy store. It was very sweet (no pun intended). I love good memories and times gone by.

What a great give away! It's been nice getting to "know" you.

Kristi M. said...

To me it would probably have to be your easy to read nature. Your posts are so fun, upbeat, lighthearted. And of course I love your Goodwill finds. Can't beat a great treasure in the rough. Keep up the great posts. Can't wait to see your candy store too.

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

Congrats on 100! I love the name of your etsy store - I think it's perfect. And my favourite post was you at the Shabby Chic store. The photo of you in front of the store - priceless!

Tricia Anne said...

Hello Maisy,
Congratulations on your 100th post.
For my contribution of favorites, it would have to be your over all approach. You have the type of blog that welcomes in the reader (me) and makes us feel right at home. You have a funny sense of humor and bring charm to your posts! :o)
I look forward to reading the next 100 posts!
Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne

Deb said...

Congratulations Maisy on 100 posts! One of my favourites was your "Woohoo It's Friday - This is what did NOT happen this week" :-)

Christina J. said...

Congrats on 100 posts!

I just found your blog through your shop and am having fun looking through it. I like the post that includes a picture of my new green vase. :) You are right; it is the perfect color!

Congratulations on the 100!!!!! I can't wait until I make it to my 100. Love your Goodwill finds. I go to my local one but never find the deals that you do. Unfortunately we only have one in our town.

Libby said...

Congrats, Maisy, on your 100th post. I have enjoyed your Goodwill finds and your "I did not Friday" posts. Those are hilarious! :-)

WHOO-HOO, congrats on your 100 posts! How exciting! I love your sense of humor, you always make me smile & sometimes even LOL. I love your good will finds. You make me want to run right out & start searching stores around me to see if I too can get lucky. Keep up the good work! I can't wait to read your next 100.

Sarah said...

Congratulations on your 100th post! I am so glad I was able to attend! :) I love reading your blog and I am so happy that I found you in blogger blogger land! :) I think my favorite has been reading about your goodwill finds and of course the amazing garden tea party a few weeks back!!
Hmm, which etsy store, my kids would LOVE to win $50 worth of candy but I would like the mini bell cloche!! ;)

I loved your post on your kitchen before Easter. :) So real!

Congrats on 100!

Jeanneoli said...

Congrats on your 100th post...I am almost there. What I love about your blog is your sweet honesty and true love of your husband. You love your family, being a wife, mother, decorator.....and even cook :-) You find joy and humor in the everyday. That can be hard some days. You also make time for yourself and to fulfill some of your hobbies. You are very real! That is what we all love about you!!!!

Krystal said...

Congrats on your 100th post! I really loved the chicken soup that you posted. I haven't tried it yet, but the picture reminded me of how delicious it sounded!!

AllyKatt said...

Congratulations on your 100th post. I have loved your sweet blog. It has brought a smile to my face more than once. I've especially enjoyed your goodwill finds. Although I have never commented I have been sitting with a cup of tea reading. A giveaway has brought me out of the shadows. Here's too 100 more posts!

Hmmm...what DON'T I like from your collection of goodies?

I like that vintage baking dish with the lid, but the silver tea pot is to die for, and I've scouring thrift stores and antique shops for over a year now looking for a little glass dome to place over small plates of baked goods.

Are you really going to The Farm Chicks' show in June?
