100th post ~ its giveaway time!



Happy Monday, ladies!

Hope you had a wonderful summer weekend! I am so excited today because we are honoring a milestone here at Urban Farmgirl!

This is officially my 100th post!

And what good is a milestone without a celebration, right??




When I started this blog, I was pretty confident no one would be reading.

Honestly.

 I figured it would feed my obsession with decorating and houses...maybe be a little outlet for my furniture painting business...and that would be as far as it would go. I never dreamed I would find such a wonderful group of girls out there that shared my love of all things vintage and white...junking and photography! In my little corner of the world, I have always been the only girl that decorated with white...and "old stuff" as my friends call it...so it was amazing to find so many of you that share the love!




Not only am I celebrating my 100th post, I am celebrating you. The girls I wake up to each and every day. I have been in your homes, I have met your family...some of you I feel I know better than people I see in person every single day! Isn't this crazy blog world awesome? A year ago I never imagined any of this was possible!

To celebrate, I would love to invite you all over for brunch...or for dinner at my favorite little bistro in town...or for a day spent 'urban farmgirl style' (which means hitting every junking spot within a 50-mile radius of my house)...but since life and logisitics get in the way of any of those...how about a giveaway??

Better yet, a giveaway to one of my favorite places. Ever.

White Flower Farmhouse

One of you ladies will be the lucky winner of a $50 gift certificate to spend on anything you would like over at whiteflowerfarmhouse.com!

Their shop is amazing! It's a little farmhouse...a little beachy...a little cottage garden. Here are a few of my favorite things...


Handpainted signs on old wood...I actually have one hanging over me where I am typing this right now!




They have ironstone...and farm tables...and painted furniture, too! (Isn't that table just awesome!!??)




Wait - did I just say ironstone?? Let me say it again...because it is my favorite!




Oooh...how about some green glass bottles...and of course an old wire basket to put them in !




And the rugs??? Oh man, the rugs. They are Dash & Albert of course! I would be happy to take one in every color!





I love, love, love the soaps, too! Don't they make a lovely statement together like this?...reminds me of beach glass!



(all photos property of White Flower Farmhouse and used with their permission)

Ok...so here are the rules.

1. Leave me a comment on this post to be entered in the drawing.

2. If you become a follower of my blog, I will add your name in for a second chance. Just be sure to leave me a separate comment letting me know you have become a follower.

3. If you would like to blog about my giveaway, I will add your name in for a third chance! Be sure to leave me another separate comment to let me know to enter your name again!

And for those of you that decide to spread the love and blog about my giveaway...I have a special little drawing just for you! Shhh...the prize is a surprise, but it is something fantastic, I promise!

Oh, and the drawing will end at midnight on Sunday July 25th! I will announce the winner (chosen by random.org) on Monday July 26th!

Good luck! And to those of you that have stopped by to read my last 99 silly little posts...THANK YOU! It means more to me than you will ever know!

Oh, and here is a little button if you would like to add it to your sidebar. That counts as blogging about it, so gets you entered in the 2nd drawing!



Comments for the giveaway are now closed. Thank you to all that entered!

  16. Hi Mary,
    As I was reading this, I was shaking my head yes, yes, yes to everything you said about loving and being happy to find this sweet little blog~world! :) After meeting you at the flea market & casually finding out that YOU dear were part of this community, I was in awe at what a small world we live in. Amazing! It's so nice to share common passions with others who "get us" and "get what we love" and why we love the "crustier junk, the better." I just told my husband that phrase yesterday, lol. I think only you girls would get that. :) What a sweet generous giveaway.. love wff!! Have a great week!
    Pretty Love~
