I think it is time for a giveaway!

Good morning everyone!  I have been wanting to do a giveaway for some time now, as back in April I marked my one year Blogaversary and my 200 followers mark.  Now I am at 260 followers and I want to say a big THANK YOU to all of you.  Your visits to my blog, the comments you make, and the friendship you give are so very much appreciated!  I love you all!

So.....in honor of those blogging milestones, I would like to have a giveaway before things get too much busier with my son's wedding preparations and travel, not to mention packing up the house for the move in July!

I'm going to be giving away one of my Uncle Sam on his Sheep.

Awww...what's not to love - from pumpkin pie to pumpernickel...Its rich history, traditions, and roots that keep us strong still, are unrivaled, I believe, by any other nation. I've lived abroad and there hasn't been a place I've been that offers this richness, history, AND freedom to go with it.
