When I started blogging I never dreamed that 500 posts later my life would be so different
My first post was 9-1-08 and was titled
New Beginnings....this blog was to be for family and friends, and I blogged occasionally until 9-1-09. My life took a huge turn when I was 'downsized' and lost my job. I started reading other blogs and found it so much fun, I started blogging myself for the public...little did I know! I can't say enough about how much it has changed my life. New friends, shared interests and a creative outlet I really didn't know existed.
My word for 2012 is CHANGE
One thing I don't want to change is the wonderful friendships I've made here. I will continue to blog and share my life with you. Thank you for coming along with me.
This adorable hand made (not by me) apron
Found at a craft fair I knew it was perfect for one of you!
Keeping with the fruit theme of the apron I'm including Apple Salt & Pepper shakers and a set of three apple serving bowls.
I'm also adding this cute rooster recipe card holder and some recipe cards to record your favorite recipes off the blogs
And lastly, since there were so many wonderful comments on my vintage cookbook post yesterday, I'm including this vintage Betty Crocker's Outdoor Cookbook!
1) Mandatory: must be a follower of A La Carte and leave a comment saying you are a current or new follower!
2)For a 2nd entry Leave a seperate comment telling me your favorite thing to cook outdoors!
Sorry international friends but I must limit this to USA and Canada only
I will leave this giveaway open through
Feb 3rd and will choose a winner on Saturday Feb 4th
Thank you all for your friendship and great support! Here's to another 500 posts!
