a give away perhaps ?

somehow
almost overnight
my "no wallflowers" followers
has grown
to over
300
::
and
that makes me happy
really happy
like
dancing down the hallway happy
with my arms waving in the air while pink screams her lungs out in the background
::
so happy in fact
~now that i've caught my breath~
that it's time for a give away
::
the rules
are as follows
::
you know what
i hate rules
especially blog rules
::
so anything goes here
WELL
almost
anything
::
all you have to do is tell me if you want to win
a new blog banner
designed by yours truly
or
if you want to win a copy of one of my photos
that you have fallen in love with
::
or
if you'd rather just come over and sit and have tea
while we laugh
at kate gosselin
trying to dance
we can do that
too
~there's a prize for this too, but it's not a banner or a photo~
::
so leave me a little note
telling me which of the above works for you
and
sunday night
a winner will be chosen

  1. Ooh I think I'm the first - maybe it'll bring me luck because I never win anything. And I hate rules, too. So thanks for the lack there of. This is more fun anyway. Loving your blog name and the photography.

    Have a great day.

  2. I'd love a new banner or one of your pictures. I was going to say the banner for sure, but I love your photography so much I couldn't decide!

  3. new banner, she screamed, then she screamed at her sister that hey, we could win a new banner. yay.

  4. Oh I'd LOVE to win one of your photos! Congrats on the (307!) followers!

  5. I wanna come over and drink tea and laugh at Kate !!!! That would be such a prize! A photograph would be awesome but not even in the same ballpark as the goodness of hanging with you for a bit in person...we shall get there one day, I hope !
    Congrats on all the followers, Talented One !

  7. EEEEEEEEE! All of the above! Probably a photo since you already designed my banner and I'm still pretty happy with it. Wow, 300 followers, that is something to crow about!

  8. I totally want to come over and drink tea and laugh at Kate. That would be perfect!!
    Not that your photos are TDF...I just need the laughing therapy.

  9. Time, time, time.
    How generous of you to offer your time.
    I choose time! It's the most valuable to me.
    I would prefer a nice leisurely walk to watching the telly. Perhaps at a park?
    That's if I win of course!

    :)

  10. I would love to spend time with you - how do I work that living in Georgia? But, I guess I'd be happy to settle for one of your gorgeous photographs...congrats on your follower milestone!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yes, meeting you would be great, but I don't get out much...so I would LOVE one of your photos, I have fallen in love with so many of them!
    So now do we have to call you the Pied Piper?

    ReplyDelete
  12. I realllllly want to have tea with you...or perhaps a diet coke? Please?

    ReplyDelete
  13. oh honey - your work is beautiful but the prize of being able to sit down with you for some tea ... that's the real prize. we so have to make this happen.

    xo

  14. A new blog banner would be the best of both worlds since I can't come over to drink tea with you in person!
    I have not wanted to change my blog banner and one time two years hubby changed it to show me I would like a change but I had him put it back. But if I had your gorgeous work in a banner I would be so happy to change my blog banner and keep it.

  15. Ok, I'm not putting myself into the giveaway cuz I get to hang with you anyway! Yippee!

    ReplyDelete
  16. since many miles separate us and I can't travel one of your amazing photos would be a treat ...

    ReplyDelete
  17. congratulations on reaching 300! WOW!! I'll take one of your photos anyday! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would adore one of your photos. Sitting with you trying to watch Kate dance would be futile, since whenever she comes on, I just can't look and end up burying my head in the couch cushions until the train wreck stops. If she doesn't go home tonight, I don't think I'll be able to stand the injustice of it all. No amount of chocolate will help. HA!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Of course, I would love all of the above but I think the most practical one would be a photo, partly because it could move with me wherever I go and would bring me constant joy.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Look at you with the 300+ followers...woo hoo!!! I want to come over and drink tea and laugh at kate...please please please... xoxo

  21. Congratulations on your followers, we all love you. all of the above, would love to sit and have fun with you, but I don't even have a passport. a professional blog header would be fun, but I am still leaning towards your beautiful photography, but I have one already, is it selfish to want another one....I am just glad to visit you and that you take time out of your busy day to visit with me. Again congratulations.

  22. i think that i want to win a phone chat with you. i know that wasn't one of the choices, but i'm making up my own because it's the internet and i can do whatever i want on here.

    ReplyDelete
  23. you make me smile, beth!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well, since I'm a tad too far away to have tea and chuckle at Kate G., I'd love to win a blog banner! The Marmelade Gypsy has been quite the same for rather a long while!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would be deliriously happy with a new Beth-designed banner -- since I'd never be able to choose just one photo from all the Beth photos I absolutely adore.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like all three options, decisions, decisions! A banner made by you would be wonderful. Wow, 308 followers! You are so worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Beth I see you've had this blog for 4 1/2 years and obviously people love you because it just keeps growing. I know I do.
    If I won I'd love a banner because your work is so great and I am not there yet with design.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Fantastic 300 - just love your words and photos. I would love to win either - but I adore your photo from April6 th of the blackbird on the birch log ....so if I was lucky enough to be picked I would be over the moon to receive that.
    Thanks for sharing yourself. Ingrid

  31. 300, Fantastic! I'd love to have a banner designed by you!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I wish I was close enough to come have tea with you. Your fun personality comes through in your photos, poems, and comments. I'm sure time with you would be full of laughter.
    However, since the visit isn't an option, I'd love a picture of yours. I always look forward to viewing your latest entry.
    Congrats on so many followers! I'm not surprised; your site is an instant "lift."

    ReplyDelete
  33. You have 309 followers!!! That is so cool!!!!!!!!!

    I would like a photo print!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hanging out with you would be the best prize, but since I can't have that, then definitely a photo.

    Congratulations on 300 followers! Smart people for following beautiful you and this gorgeous blog. xo Gigi

  35. Ooh, would love a banner header! Or a photo. Either would be great, I really don't know how I would pick!

    Keep up the good work on the blog!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Any and all of the above please!! That was one thing which got me interested in your blog was your lovely banner...what a great idea for a giveaway...I could never figure out how to make a proper one...

    ReplyDelete
  37. ALL OF THE ABOVE? OK, ok, I have always wanted to get up the courage to ask you to design a blog banner for me....so GIVE ME A "B" ...B...GIMMEE.....B-A-N-N-E-R

    ReplyDelete
  38. Definitely a photo for that is permanent and could be installed on my inspiration wall!
    xo

  39. ohmygoshohmygoshohmygosh, I had completely forgotten that you do ***banners***! Of course I must throw my hat into the ring for that one since mine is sooo boringly plain and needs HUGE sprucing up!!

    Thank you for the contest :>]]

  40. I know we will meet in person someday. I just know it.
    And the banner offer is awesome,

    but I'd love your art in my home. A piece of your heart and soul to look at always.

    Thank you for the chance at this !

    ReplyDelete
  41. a new banner sounds good but I rather have one of your photos, there's something about them that just says nostalgia

    ReplyDelete
  42. oh, and my allergy is beating me but I think I'm winning, sort of...

    ReplyDelete
  43. I can't believe I forgot to sign up. :) Thanks for the reminder.

    ReplyDelete
  44. photo photo photo!!!! i would absolutely love one of them in my home! ...i'm constantly raving about them to my husband who'll casually walk by and exclaim at seeing your latest...'Wow! Who's is that?!' I say, 'it's Beth's...she's just so darn good. :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm up for anything you gift this way, Beth. Thanks for always being such a great friend :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I haven't been out much. But I would love to enter to win either the banner or the photograph. Because I think it would be difficult to come for a visit!

    ReplyDelete
  47. either works for me, thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  48. It's a banner for me - glad I stopped by to see your give-away.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh, friends of Beth, you are gonna want to pick the banner by Beth. This woman's a genius. I, of course, would pick one of her many photos that I'm in love with. Oh, Beth, I still am waiting for your Red Bubble or Etsy to open up.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Wish we were close enough for tea! Alas, (just kidding here) Kate is gone, and now poor Tony can breathe a sigh of relief. I'd love one of your photos. I pormise to find it a good home.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh my... I snorted at the Kate G. comment.
    My hubby said I was being mean, but I didn't appreciate how bitchy and controlling she kept trying to be during practices. She did not look like she was having fun at all.
    Isn't that the whole point of dancing?
    Fun?
    Sheesh.

    So nice of you to have a give away.
    Who wouldn't love one of your lovely photos?

    ReplyDelete
  52. I would love sitting and drinking tea with you, talking photography and picking your brain. But since that isn't going to happen, I am going to at least try to win one of your awesome photographs. That probably won't happen, either, but at least the chances are greater!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh! Sunday night is tonight! I'm not too late afterall! Got in by the skin of my teeth. (who came up with that figure of speech anyways?)
    How I would love to have one of your images or a new blog banner! You do such beautiful work Beth.

    my fingers are crossed.
