You're Invited!


Hard to believe, but this is my 90th post. Do you know what that means? I'm 10 posts away from the 100 mark. If you know me, either through the blog or in real life, you know that I love an excuse for a party, so let's celebrate, shall we?

I'll make the margaritas and stuffed jalapenos. You can see my real non-wood floors in person. We'll listen to a little Duffy or Steve Winwood on the sunporch and take in the beautiful Hill Country views.

Oh, and the best part? There's a prize. Actually, there are three prizes, so there will be three lucky winners. Leave me a comment on any post from this one (#90) to #99, and you'll be entered to win. Each comment puts your name in the pot, so feel free to leave several comments between now and post #100.

The prizes? Pottery Barn's Dining Spaces, Living Rooms, or Bedrooms.

Edited to add: For yet another chance to win, mention the giveaway on your blog and link back here, and you're entered yet again!

Keeping up the Canyon Wren Cottage blog has been a lot of fun. Some of you I've known through decorating boards, and some of you I've gotten to know through this blog and through yours. Thank you for your loyalty and comments along the way. Alright, enough of the sappiness. Let's get ready to party!

Ok, I'll bring the salt and lime. Of course, I'll bring some music, too... Let's see, in the Texas Hill Country, we'll have to listen to some Texas legends, how 'bout a little Willie, some Janis Joplin, and that quintessential little ole band from Texas, ZZTop! Let the party begin!!!

Hi Sandra...please drop my name in the hat!

Congrats on your upcoming 100th post.

I'll steal your margarita, if you don't mind, and put it on my sidebar, to announce your giveaway!

sandra/tx said...

Welcome, gals! Great idea, Pat. Nola, if we're gonna listen to Texas icons, let's throw in some Los Lonely Boys, Norah Jones and my friend, Walt Wilkins. :-)

Kathy said...

Hi everyone. I brought some chips and salsa. I love this blog.

Lisa said...

No wonder I had the urge to buy jalepenos today. My cream cheese is sitting out on my kitchen counter softening!

How is this going to work with the meatloaf I am preparing tonight?!

Congratulations on all the posts. I'm really enjoying your blog.

Yay! I'm so glad you're almost 100! (When are you ever going to hear that again?) Thanks so much for what you said about the post Joni did on her great blog about me. I too loved the tent, and I think that most of my friends will see that as the expectation for all further dinner parties. Ouch! LOL! Can't wait to see who wins your very generous give-a-way!

Hi Sanda!

I came over from Nola's --it's fun to find new blogs through give aways and I just looked at all your fun posts and enjoyed your blog very much. I love your banner phot --what an incrfedible view! The jack o lanterns made me laugh, and that open house you showed was spectactular! I wouldn't knwo what to do wuth such a big house as mine is so small.
Happy soon to be 100 posts!

Hugs, Pat in NYC

Michelle said...

Hi! Found you from Nola and wanted to say hi. I will be trying your potato soup as it sounds super yummy and I had to laugh about you being a Tech fan in Austin. I currently live in Oklahoma. We are originally from Texas (me from San Antone and hubby from Ft. Worth) and when I realized how *crazy* these OU fans are up here (shhh, don't tell Nola! :) I became an instant UT fan though I didn't go to UT and could care less about them. I just like to bug my OU friends. But Wow, that Tech game!! Congrats!
