1 year BLOG-a-versary giveaway!!!

Today is the 1 year anniversary of Maple & Magnolia!

Honestly, I can’t believe I’ve stuck with it for a whole year. You see, I’m big on starting things but super ADD when it comes to stick-with-it-ness. I get bored easily and move on to something else.

Blogging is different, though. It motivates me, challenges me, and brings me a tremendous amount of satisfaction.

Not to mention all the wonderful cyber-friends I’ve made. All the super-sweet comments and encouragement makes me wanna go all Sally Field…”you like me, you really like me.” Β πŸ˜‰

Anyhoo…as my way of saying a big ol’


I’ve got an awesomenessΒ (my daughter’s favorite word) giveaway for ya.

Y’all ready for this?

A gift card to my favorite store, Pottery Barn. Actually THREE Pottery Barn gift cards. $100, $75 and $50.

And if you don’t have a Pottery Barn store near you, no worries…you can use it online!

Wanna know how??? It’s

1. Be a follower of this blog by clicking “subscribe to M&M” on the upper right hand corner of the home page.

2. Refer friends to follow this blog.

3. “Like” Maple & Magnolia on Facebook by clicking “like” on the upper right hand corner of the home page.

4. Β Refer friends to “like” M&M on Facebook.

Here’s the most important part…

Leave a comment at the bottom of this post with your name + the name of the person/people you referred.

They do not have to be separate comments.

Please make sure to leave your e-mail address so I’ll know where to e-mail the gift card.

Whoever refers the most people including followers and likes, gets the $100 gift card.

Next highest, the $75 gift card.

Third highest, the $50 gift card.

That’s it.

Told ya it was easy!

The deadline for the giveaway is NOON on WEDNESDAY. I will post the winners and e-mail the gift cards on Wednesday afternoon!

Good Luck, peeps!

    Here are my referrals

    So those are my peeps…I “like” you on Facebook and I did a comment message to all my fb friends cause I don’t know how to refer friends on that…and my friend from Dallas Sherolyn Yarbourough commented that she is a follower of yours already and of course you and I would be friends! What a small world huh!

    I would really like to receive a Pottery Barn card so I could use it towards the new glass pumpkin punch bowl and glasses! So cute!
