Hello out there!

I was stalling on this five-hundredth post — planning to create something monumental. To keep things moving, let's make due with the most magnificent magnolia tree EVER, a cobbled sequence of summerfun, AND little a give-away.

To those who peek here — thanks so much for visiting. I'd like to express my gratitude by giving away a handful of posters. Just leave a comment by Friday morning and note which one you'd like > select from the minimini thumbnails 1 – 12. The posters look quite nice in kid and baby rooms as they're high contrast. Size is 28 x 36 inches. I'll draw five names.
again thanks so much for commenting and stopping by!

has anyone entered one of these here r-a-f-f-l-e-s?
