Everything is Rosy 100th Post Giveaway

     I am so thrilled to celebrate by 100th post and my giveaway will be announced on Mother's Day.  Today we are preparing for a Run for the Roses party of our own.  Glen loves the horses, so if we can swing a party for the Kentucky Derby we try.  We, I should say he is really cooking everything himself.  He already made macaroni and cheese, shortbread and we'll bake two hams before the guests arrive.  He ran to the food store, so quick I am writing out the contents of the prize.  The prize is for the love of roses and it contains: Crabtree & Evelyn's bubble bath, Rosewater Body Lotion,  Hand Therapy, body powder and soap leaves, Susan Branch's 64 message cards of fun, inspiration and hope, Susan Branch's little book of drink recipes, Victoria Secret's the Royal Roses of London Collection by Coral Guest dated 1991 and a 5 picture collage frame decorated on the top with roses.  As I go through all of my lovely things I keep asking do I really need this or would someone else be able to use it more.  I love roses and obviously that is why I bought these, but it would give me greater joy to give these away.  Please leave a comment on this post to be eligible, if you are a follower you will be put in the hat also.  So, increase your chances by leaving a comment.  Also, if you put my button up with a link and share the love leave another comment on this post and you will be entered again.  Let the games begin.......and they are off.  Let me know if you are watching the Derby today and if you have any traditions for it.
I will leave you with one of the messages from Susan Branch's box of messages and it says:

Life is short, eat dessert first

Yummy, mac and cheese. We kinda forgot about the Derby. Usually we go to a party but this year no one did anything. I know my hubs did watch the race. I love roses too. What a sweet give away. Count me in. Hugs, Pam

WOW!!! Congrats on your 100th post. What a generous prize. I see the Derby yesterday, that was quite the finish. Awesome race. I work at the Fort Erie Race Track in Canada and there is nothing I like better than walking out to the track early in the morning and watching these beautiful animals train, they are amazing.
