with gratitude

September marks one year of starting my blog.  I have learned so much and still have so much to learn, but I must say this last year has been wonderful.  I have "met" so many amazing people.  Through writing and reading blogs I have really figured out a lot about what I like.  Style when it comes to fashion, food and home decor have always been important to me, but through blogs I think I have defined my true style.  One thing that maybe surprised me is that I have defined my style to fit one word and that is simplicity.  To mark my one year anniversary I would like to do my first give away.  Through blogs I have fallen in love with the company Glassybaby Forever.  I love the story behind them and adore having them in my home.  So I'm giving away a Glassybaby called appropriately "Gratitude" to one of my readers.
Thank you for reading l o v e l y t h i n g s  and for your comments and encouragement.  A winner will be selected through random.org on October 16th.  Remember to check back on Monday to see if you've won.  To enter you must be a follower.  Leave a comment here and tell me which Glassybaby is your favorite.  To receive an extra entry, please mention this giveaway on your blog.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  3. I think I remember you mentioning these before, but I never actually went to the site until now. Wow. They're like little jewels. I had a lot of trouble picking a favorite because I love color, and I just got lost clicking on each one and loving it better than the last. So I'll go with one that caught my eye at first...Hide and Seek. These are really lovely, just like your blog...<3 Congrats on your 1 year blogiversary!

  4. Oh gratitude is a lovely shade of green and green is my favourite colour!
    I spent a long time on Glassybaby and cannot believe how difficult it was to pick one...I love Lady Di as it is such a brilliant blue, just like her sapphire engagement ring.

    What a lovely way to celebrate your anniversary. I have a giveaway on right now too.

    I am a follower too.

  5. What a wonderful giveaway! I have been following for a while now, and I so admire your style. I checked out Glassybaby, and it was tough to choose, so many beautiful colours. I would have to say "aquamarine" is my favourite as I like the colours of the ocean. I'll mention this giveaway on my blog (I'll post a 2nd comment when I do so!).
    Best, Louise

  6. Annie, Congratulations on your 1 year blog anniversary. I always tell Lynn how much I enjoy reading your post. I do not think I have a favorite glassybaby. I have given a few for gifts, baby and grateful. I just bought one for myself.

  7. What a fabulous company! I have never seen anything like this. I just went on their site and I adore the "hide & seek" combination of warm and cool tones. Perfect for the fall! Mandi

  18. I am a brand new follower. Love the story behind Glassbaby! There were so many colors that it hard to choose just one. I think that Arthur and Wingman are my two favorite colors.

  19. Congratulations Annie! What a thoughtful giveaway. I love Glassybaby, and being from Seattle, they've always been a special item to share with others by giving them as gifts...funny thing is, I've never 'given' one to myself! So silly...I suppose it's because I'm always waiting until we're settled to purchase more house stuff. One day though, I'd love to have a few around, their story is so amazing, and to think, Lee now blows glass after haivng lung cancer...it's truly inspiring!
    Here's to another fabulous year...

  21. Wow! Grateful is my favorite but they are all so beautiful. Thank you for the chance. I am a follower. PS I made the famous marinara and my family loved it. I have to admit it was a little embarrassing when they asked how I made it;0

  34. How exciting that it is your one year blog anniversary! I adore your blog and it has given me a lot of design inspiration during the remodel of my beach cottage these past 9 months. It is so relaxing to look at the beautiful pictures on your blog while I am living amongst debris, dust, noise and chaos! What a fun giveaway too. I love the glassbaby sets, my favorites are childs play and ocean. I also like the aquamarine glassbaby. Actually I pretty much love all of them:)
