300th Post Giveaway- The Anne of Green Gables Treasury

It's hard to believe I've come up with that many posts. I'm amazed I've stuck with blogging this long; I really didn't plan to do it for the long term. I consider myself a very private person, and blogging isn't exactly private, is it? ;) At least once a month I consider closing shop. But I enjoy having a record of our family happenings. And I've met some lovely people along the way. Those two things are the best reasons I have for continuing to blog.
So in honor of my 300th post, I'm giving away The Anne of Green Gables Treasury. Here is a write-up on this book: In 1908, L. M. Montgomery's classic Anne of Green Gables introduced the charming and memorable Anne Shirley to readers and immortalized scenic Prince Edward Island through the eyes of this unforgettable character. In this lavishly illustrated volume, you can enter the world of Green Gables and bring that world into your own. Learn to prepare an Anne tea party complete with easy recipes Anne would have made; transform your garden into one just like Anne's; learn about Victorian flower language; recreate handicrafts from the Anne books -- sachets, pressed flowers, Anne's flowered hat, and many more; discover details about Anne's day-to-day life at Green Gables as well as what was happening in the real world at the turn of the twentieth century. This special edition features a specially-designed Anne Tour of Prince Edward Island, with four itineraries shaped to different aspects of the Anne experience, so that you will not miss a single site on your trip to the world of Anne of Green Gables! Maps, photographs, even floor plans of Green Gables bring Anne's World to life. A short biography of Anne's creator, L. M. Montgomery, is included along with synopses of all the Anne books. Sprinkled throughout the text are quotations from the Anne books set against more than 150 full-color reproductions of original paintings and sketches, all thoroughly researched and authenticated. Even the page borders have been adapted from wallpaper of the period. For everyone who has read and loved the Anne books, The Anne of Green Gables Treasury recreates Anne's world, brings a magical time and place to life and celebrates 100 years of one of the world's most beloved characters.
