Celebrating 100!

Thank you! Thank you, thank you! Sweet Turtle Soup hit 100 followers on bloglovin. Thank you so much for following, reading, commenting, and being awesome. I remember starting this blog thinking it would be pretty cool to get 25 followers, and I did a little dance every time somebody new followed me on GFC or bloglovin. It was a pretty slow trickle in the start, and then it seemed like all of a sudden I was somewhere in the 80s. It was even better having a nice group of lovely commenters. And, better still making friends with so many of you!

And, now I've gotten to 100. It is such a lovely number, and it just feels huge to me. A nice jump from two digits to three digits. I remember in kindergarten my teacher, who is one of the sweetest ladies ever, had a big 100th day of school celebration. We all were to bring in 100 of something. I brought in 100 beans. If I could give all 100 of my followers a bean, I totally would. Beans for everybody! Well, just one bean..so bean for everybody! Since I can't really send everybody a bean, I thought I would do the next best thing - have a giveaway.

Are you worried I'm giving away a sack of beans now?

I'm not.

I'm giving away these gorgeous earrings from one of my favourite bloggers, who happens to have an etsy shop. Allison makes such lovely jewelry, and I always enjoy reading her blog posts.  She and her husband (and pup) sailed down the east coast for 5 months last year, talk about an adventure. And, she just celebrated her birthday a couple days ago. You should definitely pop over to her blog and wish her a happy birthday, and check out her shop too!

The listing is spring pastel gemstone cluster earrings on sterling silver. I picked them because I thought the colours were perfect for fall. They are delicate, and sparkly, and all things pretty. I just love them, and I'm completely jealous of whoever wins them.
