GROW YOUR BLOG AND A GIVE-AWAY

Well, I'm late to the party again! The party "Grow Your Blog" began yesterday and I forgot to post about it! Better late than never!


Vicki at 2 Bags Full is hosting a blog party for bloggers to get to know one another and grow their blog. Go here to find interesting blogs to read! There are about 400 blogs signed up and most are offering Give-Aways! My Give-Away prize will be posted later this week! So check back! In the meantime... sign up to WIN! I promise the GIVE-AWAY PRIZE will be worth your while! HINT:  It will be vintage related! You must sign up on THIS POST to be entered. Give-Away ends on Feb 1st.

So here's MY story: I began this blog to keep our valued friends updated on vintage occasional sales that  I have twice a year with two friends. The name of our hobby/business is Hob Nobbers...hob nobbing all over the countryside searching for treasures for YOU!

Beyond keeping everyone posted about our next sale and vintage finds I also post about my adventures living in a 49 room mansion ( we're Resident Directors and live in the West wing ), and Mondays are "workshop days" where I share posts about "living this life". Right now I'm in the middle of a workshop called, "Live Your Dream Life NOW". For information about that go to my Nov. 26th post. The first workshop was on Jan 7th.

Thanks for stopping by!

UPDATE :  GO HERE TO SEE WHAT I'M GIVING AWAY

    A 49-room mansion - wow! I bet that is interesting.

    Popped in from the Grow Your Blog hop.

    1. Just to clarify...We don't OWN the mansion so I feel it's OK to kind of "brag" about it. : ) We've had some great adventures here. I'll be sharing more about those on my blog. There are a few photos on my right sidebar.

  6. Just stopping by to check out your "Grow Your Blog" post and sign up for your giveaway of course. I saw this great party here a couple days ago, ran over to sign up, but I was already too late. I'm thinking about doing something similar over at my blog since there were so many who were interested that weren't able to sign up in time. Can't wait for tomorrow's workshop post!

  10. Of course the first thing that popped into my mind when you mentioned the mansion was, is it haunted??? Plus you have so many vintage items are any of them haunted?? :D Thanks for sharing with us the background of your blog, I've never thought to ask why people blog. I love your blog and I'm so glad I found you. :)

    1. Many people think it's haunted! There ARE weird noises and the original owner ( more about him later ) died in the house so...But no, our vintage items aren't "haunted". At least that I know of! Guess I didn't know "vintage things" could be haunted. I DO know that in the very large photo of the original owner in the stairwell, his whole head turns and follows you as you go up the stairs! VERY CREEPY!
