me oh my! {the 600 follower GIVEAWAY} CLOSED

 CLOSED

Umbrella Girl 
I'm sitting here with a cup full of Throat Coat (aye, I know..a sore throat on such a day as this?!) and a blueberry bagel. The weather outside is deliciously foggy, and I feel uberly cozy despite the throat.

It is the perfect day for a giveaway in my neck of the woods, and I am determined to get this one on a roll before the clock strikes twelve.

So. What are we waiting for?

Just the usual--thanks and acknowledgements and all that stuff that takes a few moments to type, but is so never long enough to properly thank my amazing sponsors for taking faith in my little site and allowing a few of their goodies to be given away. So, let's all give a huge virtual round of applause for these lovely ladies, shall we?

*the hugest applause known to history*

:]

..And, I can't cut my acknowledgements paragraph short without thanking you, my dear friends and faithful readers, for making this little blogging hobby of mine so wonderfully fun. ♥

*the hugest hug known to history*

(hey, fitting 602 people in a bear hug is not as easy a task as it may appear ;)  


Now. Without further adieu, let me introduce the 21 prizes and their sponsors....
