Spreading Love To The Acorns

Spread the Love

It’s time for September’s Spread the Love-and time to thank all you wonderful commenters who make the Blind Pig a better place to visit. When I first started this blog-I wondered if I could manage it-actually I still do. Those feelings led to the choice of my name-Blind Pig & The Acorn.

I find I’m not very “swift” as The Deer Hunter would say. All these months of posting-I’ve kept my mantra in my head:  “Even a blind pig can find an acorn every once in a while” meaning I can do this! But I never realized until today-you guys that comment-you are the ACORNS I’m finding. Each comment you leave just adds to the worth of the blog. Your comments truly add richness.

So I’m sending a great big Thank You to all the September acorns!

For September’s giveaway-a crocheted spider and web-handmade by Granny.

The winner is…

Becky of Twisted Fencepost Ms. Halloween herself!! Becky has been having the neatest posts related to this time of year-at the moment she’s even having one where you can do some writing yourself-so check it out!

Since I had my epiphany (commenters=acorns) I’ve decided I should celebrate the whole month of October-since it is the month for acorns.

On each Friday in October-I’m having a giveaway. To enter all you have to do is leave me a comment that week on any post. Thats it! Just comment. The giveaways will be on Oct. 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, and the 31st of 2008.

I hope you’ll tell your friends about the giveaways, tell your neighbors, and shout it from your roof tops-well that could be dangerous-so just shout it from your car window as you drive down the road. That should work in getting me and you some attention!

Thanks again to all the Acorns (commenters)! Most Acorns have a great site of their own-so please click on a name and go for a visit-I know you’ll be glad you did.

    Isn’t there a saying about acorns and winters? Something like an unusual abundance of acorns is a sign of a very rough winter. How is the acorn crop looking this year in your neck of the woods?

    Congratulations, Becky! Very cute decoration. What’s in the background of the bowl? I thought for a moment they were Christmas decorations, but maybe some fall things? Enlighten me! Have a great weekend!

    Tipper! I love being considered an acorn! I’ve always loved your blog name, and though I knew it was a common quote, wasn’t sure why you had chosen it! I love your decision that we are acorns, your readers! But, you are hardly a Blind Pig! You are so talented in all you do!

    Tipper,
    That’s very clever to equate commentors with acorns, that is exactly what we are. My granny used to always says, “Every old bling hog finds an acorn every once in awhile”.
    I love the spider web thingy, its be perfect for a table decoration or to put over a bowl of trick or treat candy!
    I love your blog. Also, Love Love Love the music that plays while i read your witty observations.

    Well, how about you – a surprise giveaway! (Congrats, Becky!) I’m telling you, I really enjoy stopping by your blog every day – it’s just like visiting with a friend who lives just down the road. I guess it’d be what we call “back door neighbors.”
    Thanks for all the great stories and memories that you share with us.

    Tipper: I’m surprised that you would put yourself down that way. You have such a great site and are always articulate. Congrats to Becky and she also has a fun site. Keep all the great posts coming.

    Just a note to let you know how much I enjoy your site. My son came by the other day and I showed him your site and then we just sat and listened to the music for awhile. That was so nice. By the way could you tell me how you pronounce “Appalachian”, I say it one way and my son says it another. Granny does great work, I love the spider/web. Terry

    Congratulations to Becky on winning the giveaway. I know she will love it.
    Love the photo of the acorns. We don’t see them much around here anymore. We used to play with them when we were kids.
    I left a comment on your hay post. That brought back a lot of memories.
    Blessings,
    Mary

    I’m so happy for Becky. I’m sure the second she sees/saw this, she will be screaming, jumping up and down and doing a happy dance. It couldn’t have gone to a more perfect person!
    You are SO nice, and every Friday! You’re going to worn out!

    Your blog is always a joy to read. I love learning about your part of the country and then thinking back on the similarities with my own and then thinking what makes your place unique. It’s a wonderful experience–a rich blessing.
