100th Post and a Giveaway

Here it is, my 100th post!
It seems to be traditional here in Blogland to do something special commemorating this triple digit,
so I guess a giveaway is in order.
Truthfully, I've been putting off posting because I just didn't know what on Earth to offer, but now it's settled. Drum roll please. . . .
. . .
One lucky winner will receive a
kinda-quirky-oh-so-folky bird ornament,
like this one here:

This particular bird is in the arms of an angel at present, but he has an identical cousin awaiting a loving home. He's just a little guy at 5 1/2 inches, and he promises to only eat twice his weight in birdseed everyday. So if you'd like me to send you your very own folky birdy friend just leave me a comment. If you want me to enter you a second time, link to this post on your blog as well and let me know.

I'm thinking I'll pick the winner on New Year's Day.

What fun! I love giving away stuff!

Ready! Get set! Go!

Now STOP. I've drawn a winner.
