Favorite Photo Friday and 100th Post Giveaway Reminder

This is my first time participating in Favorite Family Fotos Friday, which is hosted by Deborah of http://picturespotspens.blogspot.com/. Go visit Deborah and join the fun!

These are not refugees, they are my kids and their first cousins when they were small. LOL! My kids are the 3 smallest ones on the right right side. Too bad Tina's pic is cut off.
This picture was taken in Tampa, FL of my granddaugher AJ, when she was about 4 years old(her mom is the second from the right above), with her cousins (their mom is the 4th from the right above) who were visiting from Chicago then. These are the same kids who stayed with us for 2-3 weeks over summer vacation last year and kept us hopping. Of course they are a little older now. AJ is 10 now.
I would like to remind you that my post, Sightseeing Saturday, tomorrow will mark my 100th post. And to celebrate it, I am offering a giveaway. If you are interested, please try your luck on the giveaway. I took pictures so take a look! The picture does not show the black ruffly placemats very well but if you click it, you will see it better.
The package includes:


a tablecloth that I bought from Grand Cayman. It fits a table for 6 and it also includes 6 matching napkins.

a religious icon I bought from Estonia

a set of 4 ceramic teapot napkin holders
a set of 4 black ruffly palcemats

Vintage crocheted and linen doilies (they are not new, they were thrown in with some items I won on an antique auction)

a souvenir pen (I think I got it from Russia)

a set of matrushka nesting dolls from Russia

a blue and white ceramic box
Every comment that you leave on my Sat. post will give you 1 entry.

If you will participate for tomorrow's Sighteeing Saturday, I will add 3 more entries for you. Just let me know in a comment if you intend to do that.
Thanks and good luck! See you tomorrow!!




Good luck!

Oh Christine, I always love seeing the pics of your family. They are all just so sweet. Isn't it funny how fast they grow. I look at mine and still see them in my mind as little people. lol They wouldn't like it if I told them that. Your giveaway is such a generous collection of things. What a thrill to reach 100th post. I am barely at 50. You go girl!!! I will look forward to tomorrow's post. Hugs, Marty

Christine, congratulations on your 100th post! One of the nicest things about blogging was meeting you among my other favorite people!

Those are lovely gifts, and I would be delighted to put my name in the hat.

I just hopped online for a minute to check on something, and I'm hopping straight off. I'm heading to little Cecelia's dance recital in a few minutes, and I need to get ready. It's been a crazy day. When I get a chance, I'll be sure and visit the other tours. Your Paris pictures are lovely!

Again, all the best on your 100th post...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Chandy said...

See, this is what happens when I don't visit you more than once a day, I miss any new items. LOL

Great pics of the kids when they were kids... Adorable line-up!

I'm here visiting from A Stroll Through Life. I adore your photos of Paris. I was there in '07 and loved every minute of it. Congrats on your hundreth post!

~Deborah~ said...

Beautiful children! They are all going to make such good-looking adults!...and that will be here before you know it!

Welcome to Friday's Favorite Family Foto! Thank you for sharing!

Christie said...

I visited your blog again. Great pictures. Thanks to the wonder of the digital camera. Most of my pictures from Europe are on slides under my mother-in-laws house since they were fom 32 years ago.

Again I love your site. I do not think I am ready to be part of your post. Perhaps in due time, when I have more time to myself I will join. It is a great idea.

Thanks again for the beautiful things and pictures I saw.

Christie
