I confess.
I fast forward during the centenarian celebrations on the Today Show.
While I am wowed by these folks turning 100+ years old, I cringe when I watch Willard Scott.
(I'm sure he is a nice man, but his television persona is embarrassing).

However, today I celebrate being a centenarian myself.
I'm 100+.
Not 100 years old, but publishing my 100th post.
Don't fast forward.

To celebrate my writing tenacity...
and your reading tenacity...
I'm hosting a party.
Well, a virtual party.
A giveaway party.
One guest will receive their favorite earrings from the Tallulahs website.

Here's how to join the party:
1.  Enter by leaving a comment telling me which earrings on the website are your favorite.
2.  You will be entered twice if you also mention a favorite post from Lottie Bird.
3.  You will be entered three times if you are a return commenter.

How's that for self-promotion?
 My personal favorite are the Venus Earrings which are found in the Helen Tribute Collection.
I wear them all the time.
I also love the Smoke Gets in Your Eyes earrings from the Mimi Tribute Collection.
They go with everything.

I will choose a winner June 1st.
Check to see if you are the lucky one.
And to give me your contact information so I can tell you personally that you won.
Well, virtually personally.

But please don't invite Willard to the party.
I don't want to hurt his feelings.

I've been an admirer since we stayed in your home in Alaska, and saw how nicely folded your towels were. This is a woman with style, I thought, and was glad you were only borrowing our car, and not staying in our home. I love what you've done with your life and your talents! I think your photos are as stunning and thoughtful as your written words. And I love the disc earrings in your Bare collection. Keep creating beautiful things!

I love you jewelry and so does my daughter. She wanted to know if you give lessons,until I told her where you live.

I have a hard time just choosing one pair of earrings that I like. So I narrowed it down to four...
-Bridal Veil
-Smoky Quartz Lace
-Black Lace

Maybe you can tell me what my "style" is by the earrings I like.

Out of all of your posts I have read, my favorite is about your porch back in Blackfoot. I had fun looking at the pictures.

I want to feature your earrings/company on my blog soon. I may have some questions for you to answer. Also, if you have a pair of earrings that you might want to give away in a contest on my blog, we could direct even more people your way. Tell me if you are interested. You can go check out my blog at

Well, Cindy, I've liked so many, so it's hard to say. I loved the post about dressing for transition, because I really stink at that. Yesterday I went to the park with a bunch of moms and I was totally out of place, but that happens all the time to me (not just during "transition weather")! And the one about the women in Spain wearing heels...loved that one too.

Congratulations on having reached 100 posts!

And for my favorite earring...wow, such hard questions! I think the stardust ones are lovely. The website is gorgeous--understated and calm. I love the paragraphs next to each collection. Beautiful!

i love both the galaxy and the raindrop earrings from the ella collection. well there are so many i love but those two are standing out to me tonight. andmy favorite post of course is the latest one because of the picture of landon and karlee with chocolate on their faces.

I love your Falling Leaves earrings. They are delightfully whimsical. I love your jewelry. It resists the random destruction of my 3 year old twins. Plus, as an added benefit, it goes with everything. Thanks!

Love your stuff Cindy. Whenever Rose wears something, I melt. I comment on it everytime. Just ask. I love the Creme Brulee in the Helen collection. I really liked the Pretty Young Things post because of the shout out, and Rose showed me the A Valentine For You post. Also Back When I Had Hair was pretty hilarious.

my favorite are the lemon drop earrings which a wonderful friend already gave me! I'm at awe with your blog and it makes me happy!

It's hard to pick a favorite post of yours because pretty much whenever I read your blog, you make me smile. So, I picked two. I like In Support of Beauty because I loved seeing the pictures you took. Also, I really liked It's just that kind of day because you said, "I think I will wear my lemon drop earrings. They remind me of sunshine." It makes me smile every time I think about it. I love all your jewelry, but I would have to agree that the Smoke gets in your eyes earrings from the Mimi Tribute Collection are just beautiful.
I love reading your blog, Cindy!
Xoxo, Dani
