BLOG ANNIVERSARY AND GIVEAWAY

Can it be true?  Really??  Two years of blogging?
I am amazed and humbled by the wonderful friends I have here at A La Carte!  
You have all blessed me more then you will ever know! 
Things are a little tough here right now but with your thoughts, prayers and support 
I feel uplifted
I know there is a brighter day coming!

To make this an even better Blog-anniversary I'm so happy to offer this amazing giveaway.  I was recently contacted by the great Ramsign company who graciously offered one of their house number signs to one of my followers
These hand crafted porcelain enamel signs are of the highest quality
There are five styles to choose from and they will do up to 5 numbers
This company is located in Denmark and offers free world wide shipping so this great giveaway is open to everyone!

How to enter:

You must be a follower (old or new) of A La Carte
Leave a comment for one entry

Visit RAMSIGN and come back here and leave a comment with the design you would choose if you win (mandatory) 2nd entry

That's it!  Easy!  Please be sure I have a way to contact you if you do not have a blog.  I will use random.org to choose the winner on Thursday November 10th at noon and announce the winner that afternoon. 

I found this on their website and thought it was fun!
What are enamel signs called in other languages?
German: Emailleschilder. French: plaques émaillées. Spanish: placas de esmalte. Dutch: emaille borden. Italian: piastre smalto. Portuguese: placas de esmalte. Norwegian: emaljeskilte. Danish:emaljeskilte. Swedish: emaljskyltar. Finnish: emalikyltit

Thanking you all again for two wonderful years of blogging....
It wouldn't be fun without all of you!

hugs,
Linda
