Time Flies When Your Blogging!

It's true...time does fly while your blogging! 
I will take hours to photograph items, edit, compose, edit and finally publish a post!
Why???
Because I love it!  Blogging has filled a creative gap in my life.  It has encouraged me to improve my photographic skills and to look at the world in a different way.  It has allowed me to share my life and my interests in so many fun ways.  But most importantly it has led me to you!  The friends I've met blogging are the best thing to happen from my journey in blogging!
Nov 7th will be my THREE year
Blog Anniversary and I want to celebrate it with a giveaway! 
Recently a fellow blogger introduced me to a great Etsy shop Ninnas Attic.  She makes the cutest little felt 'ornies' and I could not wait to purchase some of her fall items and share them with you! 
Look at this adorable owl and the sweet felt acorns!
And of course I could not pass up these sweet cats!
Aren't they adorable!

Here's the surprise, I'm doing 3 giveaways!  Yes, 3 years blogging = 3 giveaways!

#1 A set of 3 Owls & 3 acorns

#2 A set of 3 Cats & 3 acorns

#3 One Cat & 3 acorns

How to win???

Be a follower of A La Carte
leave a comment letting me know cats or owls
That's it! 

I will choose the winners on Wed 10/24
Make sure I have a way to contact you!!
No email address and I'll have to pick someone else :(

Thank you all for your wonderful friendship and support of A La Carte!

Hugs,
Linda

Linda, congratulations on three years blogging! I will have my first blogversary in a little over a month. I like the black cat.

Jane and Chris said...

Gosh, that's a difficult decision!
I have 13 real cats..would three more be too many? I love owls and often see them in the garden...what to do,what to do?
Linda, I think you'll have to choose for me!

OH MY! I'm so glad you got some of these sweet creations AND some to give away! That is really the BEST! I have been tucking some in gift packages, too! Congrats on lots of fun blogging. I'm so glad we are friends...and now sisters! I don't have any of the precious acorns so owls and acorns would be fun for me! Happy blogging!

Susan said...

Congratulations on 3 years...something else we share:-D We have lots of evergreens and maples, but very few oaks and I miss the acorns. I bought some on an Etsy site to cherish.
Time does fly when blogging, but it's the best time! XOXO

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Hi Linda! Congratulations on three years of very successful blogging! You have a huge and happy following, including me! I agree that blogging is a wonderful creative outlet. i never photographed so many things before, or thought about what I was seeing in the same way, or even did as many things! Cat or owl? What a wonderful choice! I would be happy with either, but I'll say cats this time. Ours has gone to kitty heaven. Linda

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

You are correct!! blogging is so much fun and takes up a lot of time!! On the weekend - I try to get off by 10am so my morning isn't totally gone. . . .
Are you showing your Mom how to blog Linda??? My Mom won't blog, but she likes to read mine. She gets annoyed when I don't blog midweek --- but hey- I have to work and I'm zapped when I get home.
