50th Post and a Giveaway


This is the famous and fabulous Mt. St. Helens.
This is the view I have as I drive home.


I should say it is the view on a sunny day. We in the Pacific
Northwest tend to take our beautiful mountains a little
for granted. But after several days/weeks of winter rain,
the sun comes out and rewards us with this.


I grew up going to Mt. St. Helens and staying at the
lodge, fishing on Spirit Lake. They are all gone now...I was
in Portland, OR the day the mountain blew up, May 18th
1980. Almost 30 years ago....hard to believe. The devastation
was enormous, tragic. But I still love "our" mountain and
am grateful I can see her so often. But on to the Giveaway...



This my 50th post. Not monumental to some,
but it is to me. Many times I have thought of
stopping the blog but just kept going. So,
making it to 50 is a big deal. You have probably
heard all the news about this wonderful new magazine,
Flea Market Style. A copy could be yours. It is full
of wonder! Our local Barn House is featured and
Queen of Tarte (just across the river) is in there, too!
Not to mention many more fabulous pages to enjoy.

How to win??? Just leave me a comment between now and
March 1st on this post and/or future posts. Every comment
qualifies as a chance to win and if you become a Follower you
get another chance.
I will draw the winner next Monday evening March 1st.

Good luck and as always, thank you for stopping by,
Annette

We used to live in the Seattle area, and even though I have a great view of mountains here in Montana, I still miss Mt. Rainier. Nothing like those beautiful Cascades. And...I've always wanted to make it over for Barn House....never had the right timing though. Maybe this year. Your post is making me miss good old rainy Washington State!

WOW, glad I left a comment on Flea Market....and now I have found your blog! GREAT stuff! I live in Colorado, at the base of 5 14,000' peaks, so appreciate the views YOU have, too! Please enter me in the drawing...I'd love to finally get my hands on a copy. I cannot find one here!
Happy 50th post...I'll be doing one for my 100th soon! Hope you will come by!

How wonderful Mt.St. Helens looks! I live in Australia, and wasn't even born at the time she erupted, but I have seen a doco on it called "Seconds to Disaster." The re-enactment and computer generated explosion was amazing and incredible! I have never seen such a thing before, and it amazes me that so many lives were lost, even though there were signs that it would soon erupt. I feel in awe now, looking at those photos. It truly is a beautiful mountain! You were lucky not to be near when she burst!
Happy 50th! A wonderful giveaway! I would love a chance to win my very own copy!

Wow, what a gorgeous view! I would love to live near mountains, and I don't think I would ever get sick of looking at them.
Congrats on 50 posts! I would love a chance to win the magazine. I am a Follower!
Happy Monday!

I would love to be entered for the drawing for Flea Market Style. I have not been lucky enough find a copy yet, so perhaps I might get lucky enough to win one ;*) Thanks for the opportunity.
