Yaaaay! You’ve made the jump. Hopefully it wasn’t too painful.

And hopefully we’ll soon be at home here. I’ve done a little redecorating from the old blog — new wallpaper, a new sign over the door, and a few new rooms. Unfortunately, all the old furniture (blog entries) wasn’t able to make the move. WordPress has a slick way of importing an existing blog, but, sadly, my host isn’t set up for the socket in your wocket (not to be confused with Lucys Locket’s Pocket), or some such thing. (Gee, sure wish I’d known THAT.) So, the archives will just have to live at the old blog. I’ve put a link to them over there on the right. After a time, they’ll nary be missed! With any luck, I won’t have broken too many other things around here in the move. Nobody likes broken dishes!
But enough yadda yadda. That’s not why you’re here? Right? Could it be for the 100th post? And a little giveaway? ‘Cause that’s the tradition, set down in blogland.

Red Bunny

Oh, and a little reminiscing about those first 100. It’s been so much fun. I’ve learned a lot. It’s been great getting to know (and be inspired by) all of you. You’ve made me laugh, and brought an occasional tear to my eye. ‘Cause, after all, behind the veil, those are real lives you’re all leading and sometimes you all have the best way of tugging at the heartstrings.

So, thanks for all that you’ve given me. And the comments. (Oh, how we lurve our comments!) Little Red Bunny up there is looking for a new home. You know the drill. If you’d like to add him to your little nest (and stick pins in him ;-) ) just leave me a comment. (And hey, even if you don’t want Little Red Bunny, you can still leave a comment.) By, say, next Saturday evening — then I’ll draw or random generate one of your names!

    Wow, Anna! What a nice new home you have here. I LOVE me some polka dots, so the decor is spot on.

    As for Le Bunny Pincushion, well, I’ve just GOTTA have one. He’s so cute and sweet and would be perfect in my little sewing corner.

    Sarah :)

  8. Your new home is quite handsome. Please include me in your drawing. The bunny pincushion would fit so nicely with my collection. Congrats on the move.

  9. The new look is fresh and clean! Why did you move to wordpress? I love that fat bunny but she doesn’t look too pleased about having that pin stuck in her!

  10. I am here!!!! I’m in the draw please – bunny is so cute!!!

    glad there weren’t many breakages while moving.
    can’t wait to visit in your new home!!

  11. That socket in your wocket sounds painful and definitely not like lucylocketspocket thankyouverymuch! Love the wallpaper – just bought identical wrapping paper! Looking forward to visiting you in your new home – wish I could in person too! I bet you make good coffee! Lucy xx

  12. Happy bloggiversary! Love the new design.

  13. No painful jump at all! It looks so lovely and fresh here! Lots of success with the WordPress blog. I’m curious about the reason you choose another host etc. Lots of blogspot bloggers do at the moment.

  14. What a lovely blog you have!! I stumbled on to your blog by way of a comment you left on another. I look forward to visiting again in the future!!!

  15. Hi Anna,
    Thanks for inviting me to visit your new place. It’s lovely! I love the wallpaper, so fresh and cheery. I also love that Little Red Bunny so count me in!

  16. Goodness, it’s a lot of work to leave a comment here!

    I wonder, too, why you shifted. I think Blogger is amazing – I can’t understand why it allows one to do all that blogging and photo-posting and all for nothing. All right, it has occasional hissy fits, but so do lots of things we pay lots of money for.

    Ah well, enough burbling.

    Love the bunny, but don’t put me on the list because I couldn’t possibly hold my head up among all those bona fide sewers if I won it. I have sewed and will again if I get to retirement age, but at the moment I’m lucky to get to reattach buttons.

  17. Congratulations on your 100th post. I love the look of your new blag. I’ll add it to my Bloglines list.

  18. I love your new look! I am adding your new site to my bloglines as soon as I am done commenting.

    Here is to 100 more…!

  19. You’ve settled in very nicely haven’t you! I did panic that I wouldn’t be able to find you but here you are in your nice new home! Congrats on 100th post – you always make me smile. Love the wallpaper and how could you dream of sticking pins in that bunny?

  20. Congratulations!! I love your new digs. And pretty please enter me in your drawing. I love the bunny, he is the most adorable!!

  21. I love your new site – congratulations.

  22. What?Stick pins into that cute little bunny? No way! IF he came to my house, I know a little 5 year old who would pit him next her bed and spray him every night with lavender! Happy 100th post & I like the new look!

    PS Ignore last comment’s little spelling mistake. Ooops. Sorry.

  24. Ooh, I love the new wallpaper you’ve put up….very Cath Kidston-ish. Well done on the move! And crossing my fingers to see if I can win the cute pincushion bunny. :-)

  25. Lovely & fresh! Love that little bunny!!

  26. I can’t believe you’ve moved! I like the look of the new place. And I’m thinking that the bunny should move to Kiev. Be an international bunny…

  27. Ohhh, this is so nice! Best wishes in your new home! And happy 100th! (BTW, my sad tomato is badly in need of a replacement…preferably something cute and fresh, like maybe an adorable little bunnyrabbit…)

    I’m updating my links now…


  28. Welcome to your new home! And congrats on your 100th post. It goes fast doesn’t it!? By the way, I’d love to stick pins in that bunnie’s tummy… like a voodoo bunny.

    Anna – Love your new blog-home! I especially like the little tabs to help organize everything for you and all us visitors. That cute little bunny would look awfully nice in my sewing room but I shall resist and pass on the drawing as I have been fortunate enough to have one of the bunny’s distant cousins in my possession. Good luck to everyone! xoxo Junie

  30. Hi Anna…made the switch a-ok :o) Love the new blog colours and theme…looks fab. Like Junie, don’t add my name to the pot..let someone else win as I have my own bunny waiting for assembly in the sewing basket…I haven’t forgotten about him…:o)

  31. Love the new site! Aren’t makeovers tons of fun…home, hair, blog. Doesn’t matter. Anyway, it looks lovely and congatulations on 100 posts.

    The new site looks wonderful! Thank you for all the time that you took to make the move! And I’ve love to have the bunny, if you happen to pick my name. I have rabbits in various places all over our house, so he wouldn’t be lonely if he came to live here. :-)

  33. Anna this is a fantastic new look! The bunny is quite adorable but do not put my name in to the pick because of PIF. I am looking forward to the next 100 posts from you!

  34. I’m so pleased I found you! Not because of the drawing, but because I really enjoy your blog! Love the look of your new “home”, or should I say “warren”!
    Red Bunny is absolutely adorable! I don’t know how you can part with him, but I’m more than willing to give him a good home! I couldn’t bear to stick pins in him, though.

    Anna – on a warm summer night your new home is very cool and inviting! Hard to believe you’ve surpassed the 100 mark! Congrats! The bunny is cute as always – but, like Junie, I also am lucky to possess a distant cousin so I’ll be nice and not sound like Donkey from Shrek “pick me, pick me”! I’m not quite as nice as some of the other commentators – I have no problem sticking pins in him – after all, that’s what he’s for! Gurney

  36. Thanks for your comment Anna, now I was trying to be a little restrained – but YES YES YES please put me in the draw.

  37. Have just found your blog and looks like I made it in time for your draw … that little bunny is so sweet.

  38. Yea for the big 100!! I’m sure that little bunny needs to come and live at my house!! : )

  39. Love your site! And that bunny is just too cute.

  40. Wow, love your new look and congratulations on 100 posts. Do you know I do not have a pin cushion and I would have no hesitation putting pins into such a cheery looking bunny so count me in!!

  41. Congratulations on your 100th post! Your new site is lovely. I love the blue with white polka dots wallpaper! Little Red Bunny is adorable, too!

  42. Congratulations on your move. The new site is very pretty :)

  43. Well, I’m a little late to the game here, but congrats on the move! It looks nice here, polka dotty and friendly-like. Enjoy your new home. I hope the neighbors are nice people who put pants on their kids.

  44. Congrats on your 100th post! Can’t wait to be in the same spot myself! I would love Little Red Bunny! Too cute!): ) Please count me in for him!

  45. OYE VEY! that’s probably misspelled I don’t speak that language, but honey, whats up? Why and how did I get here? I hit my favorite for you and I’m in the Twightlight zone! xoxomar

  46. I love your blog, I love you–you are so much fun. Your Little Red Bunny is adorable. Don’t worry about adding my name to the drawing as I just want to say how much I enjoy your blog.

  47. Lisa on May 30, 2008 at 8:07 am said:

    YEAH for your 100th blot! Your bunny is adorable and I love your blog! Lisa

  48. Well………………wer’e back to this post again. LOL!!!!!!! Have you thrown the computer into the wall yet?? I tried to respond to your email today too and it keeps getting sent back to me undeliverable. Just so you know. But I’m sure I’m not the first to tell you.

  49. Love your blog, you have some great ideas. Love the bunny too. I collect bunnies. Tracey

  50. Help!! I’m in a time warp :) I want to see the guest kitty that I can see from my bloglines but I either get a message that “nothing meets this criteria” (what???) Or I end up in this time warp :)
    I’ve been having difficulties over at my blog too. Blogger has only been sending me about 3 out of every 4 comments…grrrr. Hope this gets worked out for you soon :)
