A Fabulous Giveaway~

I wanted to start out with a very sincere THANK YOU to all of you, my fabulous readers!! On Friday at approximately 5:30 pm MST this little old blog hit the big 1,000,000 page view mark!

Sarah, one of my amazing readers, even emailed me a screenshot of the 1 millionth page view! How fun is that? (you'll have to click on it to see the detail, but I circled the page views for you.)



When I started this blog about a year and a half ago, I had no idea what an important part of my life it would become. I look forward to sharing decorating ideas with you all, getting your input when I need a little inspiration, and being uplifted by your supportive comments.


I read each and every one of those comments, and although I may not be the best at getting around to everyone else's blogs (although I try, I really do) I want you all to know that your comments, and the fact that you come by and visit me here at The Shabby Nest mean the world to me.




And because you all mean so much to me, I wanted to celebrate with a FABULOUS giveaway today!!


When I started blogging, one of the first blogs I found and fell in love is that of jewelry designer Lisa Leonard!

From Lisa's Blog


Her photography is amazing, her story is inspirational and her jewelry is completely and utterly drool-worthy. She's also on Twitter (just in case you'd like to follow her there like I do!) Just check out the amazing necklaces below.





To help us celebrate Lisa Leonard has generously offered to give one reader of the Shabby Nest a $75 Gift Certificate to use in her shop!! She makes such amazing hand-crafted jewelry, your only problem if you should be the winner, will be deciding what to spend it on!



To enter, please leave one comment on this post. Drawing ends at 11:59 pm MST Tuesday, January 26, 2010. Winner will be announced Wednesday morning.


Thank You All!!

especially getting tips from you.

I love lisa's necklaces, I'd wear it every day,
