Come to my party ! (one year BLOG-A-VERSARY)

Today is my One Year Blog Anniversary !!!! Yep !!! an entire year of blogging has gone by in a flash! I can't believe I've been blogging/blabbing for a YEAR !!! I didn't realize I had so much to talk about !! (however, I'm sure my mother, sister, sis -in-law, nieces and best pal Beth are rolling their eyes and saying under their breath "we knew you had it in ya Mare .... you've always been full of hot air!")......

........Anyhoo ..... here at "Moonbeams in a Jar " we're having a PARTY and you're invited!

........We're having these fun cupcakes......














.....and of course there's a PRIZE !!!! YEAH !!! A ONE YEAR BLOG - A - VERSARY GIVE AWAY !!!!




The Easter Bunny dropped by for a cupcake and a martini .....ummmm I mean some anniversary punch and left all this great loot for the lucky winner of the GIVE AWAY!


.....speaking of martinis, I think the photography dept has been helping themselves to too many ....you probably can't tell what's what in that picture .... so let me take that basket apart for you ....

....OK, first is this cute little candy box bunny (which I found at one of the quaint local Jim Thorpe shops .... "Pansy Place" (sorry no website)


















......and also at Pansy Place I found these 3 pretty hankies....














.....and this unbelievably YUMMY smelling French soap ...

........ssssssssssnifffffff .......mmmmmmmmm very fresh and springy! One is lavender, one is jasmine, and the other one is something linden? I think .... anyhow, it smells luscious !!!


.....oh, and then from my quilt shop hopping over the weekend, there's some pretty pastel colored wool, and that cute pink fabric with the lambs on it .... just SCREAMS SPRING !!!



























......and last but NEVER least ...... M&M's ..... but not just any M&M's .... these are the "Spring Collection" of M&M's !!!!!(hmmmmm, whatever ..... it's chocolate and that can never be a bad thing!)














......so, leave a comment and the "PRIZE WINNER PICKER OUTER DEPT" here at MBIAJ will randomly pick a winner in one week, on Wednesday March 12th after the kitchen mess is cleaned up and the homework nagging is well under way .......

......OK , now I'm gonna go have a cupcake and toast to another fun year of blabbing .... er I mean blogging!

Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

Boy do I have a blast hanging out in Moonbeam land (whistling to Bing Crosby. You seem to have so much fun...I want to come and play...and make my own tiara, lol. Candy always tastes better in seasonal colors, like spring oreos. You can just taste the springy goodness. Have one of those delicious looking cupcakes for me! Way to go on the 1 year mark girlie!

Amanda said...

Congratulations, Mary Ann!

Wow!! Look at that!!! Pat wrote you. Isn't she sweet? I guess I'm not the only one who quit writing to the group so much when I started blogging. I still visit her every day, though, through her blog and I still read everyone's posts.

I'm going to have to check the date I started my blog. I think I took the big jump into blogland about the time you did.

This has been a fun year in blogland. Thanks for encouraging me along the way. It's been great!
