Curious Acorn turns 4--Want a Prezzie?



Continuing in the hobbit tradition - it's my blog's birthday, you get the present. The things I give away are a bit random. Not unlike my blog. They represent the spirit of Curious Acorn and what you'll find when you visit here.

The package will include:

1. A yummy blank paper journal from the Brandywine Conservancy, perfect for sketching or writing
2. A sparkly-warkly glass honey bee ornament
3. A beautiful miniature painting/magnet of Portrait of Miss Mary Dupont (1906) from the Brandywine River Museum (come on, admit it, you know you've always wanted one)
4. A package of absolutely ridiculous and oh-so-pretty flowered paper drinking straws, because everyone needs a bit of nonsense in their lives (after all, "a little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men")

My most favorite thing about blogging is the friendships that I have made. My love languages are gifts and words of affirmation. You've probably guessed that by now. So this is my way of saying thank you for all that you have given.

To get your name in the hat, all you'll need to do is leave a comment. If you're a lurker who has never commented before, introduce yourself for goodness sakes! Deadline is Monday, July 22nd at 8:00PM EST. I'll mail the gift anywhere - it's a small world after all.

P.S. If you've won before, it doesn't mean you can't win again. AND, I will mail it overseas!

Jodi! Of course I want a prezzie! I can't remember how I found you a few years ago, but I so appreciate your lovely blog through which YOU shine through! The nut garland you made me a few years ago was a true encouragement and I remain grateful for that. Someday we will meet, my dear. I'll bring Lucy, too.

Jodi said...

Kit, I still cherish the felted acorns you sent. :) I really do want to meet you and Miss Lucy the Wise on this side of Heaven. xox

Oh! Oh! I love everything.I have learned so many things from you. Like making a bottle garden. I miss your garden posts and bees. I love your magic. It delights my heart.
Smiles, Dottie

Hello from your reader in Zurich! you don't need to enter me in the contest; it's a long way to mail something! I just wanted to say Happy Anniversary and thanks for blogging! I appreciate your view of the world. God bless.

Jodi said...

Susan, I'm going to enter you because Zurich is not too far in my opinion. :)

Lyndsay said...

Oooo! LOVE all the pretty things!

I am finally putting all of my letters and cards accumulated over the years into a binder (I'll embellish it of course) just like you did a couple months back. I can't wait. I'm sure it will be fun, and so nice to have everything all in one neat place. :) Thanks for the wonderful idea!

Grattis pÄ födelsedagen!
Only four years - I thought we'd known each other much longer. Time is a strange thing.

Happy Anniversary! I do so enjoy your blog. It makes me feel like we could hang out and drink tea together.

amy danielle said...

Your blog giveaways are always so awesome Jodi! And happy blogging birthday!! :)

monix said...

I think you should show us a photo of your feet as that parcel sounds extremely hobbitish! I don't need presents, just a promise that you'll keep on making us look at the world with your graceful eyes.

I think it is so cool how I have had so many adventures and met so many other friends.....who I do not even know, just by visiting your blog. Your love and passion for life radiates, it is contagious. It is like reading a book, visiting a place you have never been, and meeting characters you will never see, all the while reaping the benefits. Thank you Jodi !

Oliver says, since he was such a cute little hobbit, he should enter the prize drawing! Happy blog birthday, your entries always make me smile!

Stephanie Ann said...

Happy Blogiversary!

Jodi said...

Maureen, no one really "needs" a present, but they're still fun to get. Your name's going in the hat!

Jodi said...

Kathy/ibtreerock, Oliver is SO clever. Of course he should throw his name in.

Leslie said...

I do, I do!!! You are a very generous hobbit (and a dear friend.)

JoAnn Hallum said...

Fourth time's the charm they say...

Happy Anniversary Dear Acorn. I love you!!!

Southern Gal said...

Love it! Yay for four years! I couldn't wait to see your eclectic mix of prezzies.

P.S. We have DuPonts that have been in our small town for a long time.

P.P.S. David robbed the hive of a little honey so we could taste it. It's a dark sweet treasure.

Ron and Theresa said...

I would enter bur I need to dq myself since we are related by Issues and Remy
Love reading your blog. hopefully you will have another photo to post soon. Nothing happening yet.

Nancy said...

Okay. Now I can leave my fabulous comment. And hopefully win. Because I like winning better than losing.

Blog friends are some of the best friends in the world, especially when they become friends for reals. And, of course, we were brought together by the aliens who made the Signs.

Love you.

"You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy when skies are grey. You'll never know dear how much I love you. Please don't take my sunshine away." If I don't win I will survive. But I still want to win. I'd rather hang out.

Melissa said...

You are gifting greatness, friend. I can hardly remember the world before Curious Acorn. Must have been desolate. Love you, Dear! And love how you keep scattering beauties abroad!

Kristi in the Western Reserve said...

Oh, what wonderful presents you choose! They really seem to represent you and your blog! I can hardly believe your blog is only four years old because it feels like part of my life forever (or at least longer than four years!). Long may it continue and long may you continue to enjoy the life you celebrate!

Rosie said...

Oh, how happy :) Please count me in, Jodi!

Beth Stone said...

You had me at "sparkly warkly honey bee" - count me in! I always get excited when I see you have a new post up in my reader... Many happy returns to your blog! God bless!

Deb Colarossi said...

I adore you. Winning would be divine of course, but having you in my life? Sacred.

Dewena Callis said...

Congratulations on 4 blogging years! And yes, please, count me in. I spotted the journal! What is there so magic about a pretty and blank new journal?

Win or not, I hope you keep on blogging!

Cheryl said...

Happy Blogversary! 4 years! I love how you picked out random things to send to someone. Good luck everyone! (.....but pick me!)

Megan said...

I'd love to enter! Such a delightful assortment to celebrate your delightful place. Thank you for joining my blog birthday party as well :)

Kristi in the Western Reserve said...

I hope your daughter and her family are not too affected by the earthquakes in NZ!

vicki said...
