The big 100th post GIVEAWAY!

I   n celebrating this 100th post on this blog since April 27, 2009 I thought a long time about what sort of giveaway I should do. Maybe give away 100 of something. A hundred plants, 100 bucks, 100 ... um ... paint samples (actually I'm getting dangerously close to being able to do that one, ever since the local Benjamin Moore dealer started offering mini-cans as samples).

All of those seem a bit impractical. I don't have a lot of readers, but those you who do stop by to check out the latest post are pretty loyal, and I love reading your comments and suggestions, not to mention checking out your personal blogs.

I thought you all deserved a little reward for hanging in there with me through two blog redesigns, not to mention a slight shift in focus when I ran out of gardening stuff to write about this winter.

So I'm giving away one of the following, which you'll notice are all a  bit like this blog: a little bit garden, a little bit home:

$30 gift card to Crate and Barrel
$30 gift card to Gardener's Supply
$30 gift card to Bluestone Perennials
$25 gift card to Pottery Barn (they don't have $30 gift cards there)
One-year subscription to Fine Gardening magazine
Two-year subscription to Organic Gardening magazine
Three-year subscription to House Beautiful magazine

Here's the disclaimer: If you are located outside of the U.S., you're only eligible for the first two.

Here's how to enter:
1. Follow this blog if you're not already
2. Comment on this post with which prize you'd like
3. If you don't have a blog I can contact you through, please include your e-mail address so I can let you know that you won!

For extra entries, just blog or tweet (or both) about this giveaway, then come back and make another comment (or two if you did both).

Entry closes Sunday, January 17 at 8 p.m. CST. I'll pick a winner using

Thank you all for reading. I'm having a lot of fun with this blog, and I hope you're enjoying it as well.


  1. Congrats on 100 posts! Next thing you know, you'll be celebrating 1 year of blogging, and then 200 posts and and and...

  2. Hi Erin,

    Oh, I would so love to win the subscription to House Beautiful Magazine!! Congrats to your 100 post! I guess I passed that mark unnoticed on my blog.

  3. Rock on with the 100th post!! House Beautiful Magazine for me because we are looking for a new house that I can make beautiful :) !!

  4. Erin, I blogged about the giveaway @ A Beach Lovers Place. Thanks for the chance to win this fantastic prize!

  5. Oh...I do need that PBarn Gift Cert.

    Greetings to you from Bainbridge Island!
    Popped over from Maya's blog!
    Happy 100th post!!!!
    Do pop over...I am hosting a giveaway next week! Don't pop over if you don't like PINK!

  6. Just reading your blog is great prize for me. Thank you for all of your great ideas! Keep them coming!

  7. Rock on, Erin!! Congrats on your big 1-0-0!!

    I'd love the sub to Organic Gardening, since I already have a sub to FG. I've been wanting to amp up my veg knowledge - when I went to hort school they kind of segregated food and ornamental gardeners, so I'm catching up on my edibles info!

    I just tweeted about the giveaway - I'm excited!!!! (I'm @NCoastGardening)

  8. Oh, I was supposed to make a second comment about tweeting, LOL. I'm great at following directions, clearly.

  9. I found you via Maya's blog, isn't she the best? Congrats on your 100th post and hopefully more people will find you, gardening is such a delightful hobby and sharing with others is a good thing.

    You should consider participating in a meme called Outdoor Wednesday, I saw lots of gardens there before winter set in. Lots of sharing and lots of pretty flowers to see, lol.

    If I were to be your lucky winner I would have to go with the Crate and Barrel Gift Card.

    Hope you'll check out my blog for Outdoor Wednesday, more gardening advice is always welcome!

  10. Well hot dog! I was just coming over to say thanks for that lovely comment you left on my blog, and what do you know, a giveaway! I'd pick crate & barrel. And I'm happy to follow you! I'm all about being impatient, obviously!

  11. I would love to win! I have my eye on the crate and barrel GC but would love to win any of those fine products!
