Birthday Give-Away

Yikes! It's my birthday and it's one with an 0 in it! I sure can't believe I am this old, but to celebrate, I am giving away one of the beautiful mugs that I got at McLain-Weisand's sale late in the summer. It's a gorgeous mug by Christopher Vine Design out of Australia and it comes in a great little oval box, decorated with the same chic chairs.

All you have to do is leave a comment and while I am gone, reading through your comments will give Connor something to do. When I get back, I will get him to pick one and we'll send it out the first week of November!

  3. The mug is adorable. My sister lives in Centreville in a house listed on the Historical Register with her family. She boards horses, goes on fox hunts and is Director of a non-profit that works to educate the children of migrant farm workers. Her husband works at the Academy in Annapolis. She has a pretty good life up there and seems to be very content.

  12. Giving away on your birthday! When there is an '0' in a birthday that is the time you really need a few goodies yourself!
    Happy birthday and I wish you an even happier year.
    PS '-0' is quite acceptable and has an interesting and altogether good ring about it. The -1/ -9 numerals are far less sexy!

  14. Conor, pick me.......! Don't listen to that Joni.....she is just buttering you up. You can see right through that, right? I mean it's obvious that you are a creature of extreme intelligence. I mean, you don't rely on your incredibly good lucks. There is more to the dog than meets the eye, unquestionably!

  19. Happy Birthday! I've been enjoy the London posts. Don't bother to add my name as I have a favorite cup and don't vary! But I wanted to share this chair quote with you, in case you are not familiar with it:

    “A chair is a very difficult object. A skyscraper is almost easier. That is why Chippendale is famous.”
