Double Celebration, 100th Post, Free Give Away!

100! Don't you just love that number? It was my favorite number when I was still in school when we had tests. Today, it's a number that represents a milestone on my blogging. I can't believe it is already my hundredth post when I only started blogging last January 21st of this year. Had I only known it was this much fun, I would have blogged a lot sooner. And do you know why I enjoy it so much? It's because I have met so many of you wonderful people. To help me celebrate my 100th post, I would like to offer a giveaway. Leave a comment on this post and you get an entry for each one. Post one of your tours or sightseeing with me, I will give you another 3 entries, or on second thought, let's make that 5! That's right! 5 additional entries if you join me in posting for Sightseeing Saturday. Do you think I am trying to encourage you? LOL! I will draw the winner and announce it on my next Saturday's post. The winner gets the ff: a tablecloth for a table for 6 with 6 matching napkins that I bought from Grand Cayman, a set of 4 black ruffly placemats, a set of 4 ceramic teapot napkin rings, a religious icon from Tallinn, Estonia, a blue and white ceramic box, crocheted and vintage linen doilies, a souvenir pen and Matryoshka nesting dolls from Russia
Do you know why I called this post a double celebration? I am also celebrating because I found the pictures I took when we visited Paris. I have looked in the 2 computers that I always use and 2 external back up hard drives for months and could not find them until this morning. I found them in my HP laptop that I have not used for a while. Yipee! I was so happy when I found them and I am sharing them with you for Sightseeing Saturday. So far,

I will just show you mostly pictures because I was so in awe of the beauty of everything I saw in Paris that I could not concentrate listening to the tour guide. I could not even decide if I would look left or right because all the buildings and sceneries were just amazing.
Look at all the flowers in the windows.
Everywhere you look is gorgeous!

Arc de Triomphe
Louvre Museum, home of the Mona Lisa painting.


Napoleon's Burial Site


Now, let's have lunch and champagne while we cruise on the River Seine.
There's John and AJ enjoying the food and the cruise.


Just sit with us and enjoy the breathtaking view.
Notre Dame
Isn't the architecture gorgeous?
Notre Dame Cathedral
Aaaah! This is what I call LG! Life is good!


I don't know why but I love all the bridges and there were several!

AJ and the famous Eiffel Tower in the background. I didn't realize how huge it really is until I was right there.
I love this picture! I like seeing the Statue of Liberty with the Eiffel Tower but I wish the Statue of Liberty was bigger. But we can't complain, after all, it is a French country.
You will be smiling like this too if you were there!

Hmmm, that was a lot of fun seeing Paris again. I would really like to go back and stay a little longer to browse through their antique shops. I LOVE French antique furniture.
I hope you enjoyed the tour as I have! Please join me again next Sat. for another tour!
For my Pink Saturday, I would like to show you this little egg shaped compote. I told you we collect eggs. It has pink roses so that qualifies it, right? Beverly of http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/ is our gracious hostess for Pink Saturday, of which year's anniversary was just celebrated last week.
The compote is made in Germany by Dresden. As you can see, it has a chariot pulled by 2 swans, which is maneuvered by a cherub and there is a cherub on each handle.




Thank you so much for helping me celebrate my 100th post. Keep those comments coming cause I want you all to have a lot of chances in winning.


Thanks Beverly, for another fun Pink Saturday!
