100 Follower Giveaway...Much Less Cranky!

I am so excited!  My follower list has passed 100!  I love all of my blog friends that have chosen to follow The Cranky Queen...Ya'll have made the Queen a little less cranky!  So, I have decided to have a giveaway to celebrate this "royal occasion."  The rules are easy.
#1. Become a follower or tell me if you are already a follower.
#2. Comment under this post & include your email address. (Your one comment can include #1 & #2)
#3. Ask one of your blog friends to visit me & if they so choose, they can follow, & have them tell me who invited them (when they comment.)

It's easy as One, Two, Three!    Okay, let's get to the prizes...
Hey, the Queen is all about prizes! In honor of the Easter Season, all the prizes are "Easter themed."

This cute little Easter peat pot nest made by The Cranky Queen
A Doo Darling for your garden...the Queen loves her bouquet of flowers!

This sweet vintage puzzle with the little girl dressed in her "Easter Best."

While I have your attention, I had to share what I found on the side of the street in a trash pile yesterday. I made Mr. Cranky stop the car, & I jumped out to scavenge through the "curb side discards."  He began honking the horn, but that did not deter the Queen...I just kept digging until I had loaded up all the treasures!
These precious jigsaw puzzles with the pieces included.  Look at those angelic faces.
Vintage Girl Scout Book

I love this puzzle container...59 cents!

Old books...always good for display or for craft projects

Don't you love this groovy book cover?  This will be "cool" for a re-purposing project!
Well, the Queen has "commanded" her wishes for the Giveaway...A winner will be announced next Sunday,   April 10th.  Good Luck to all...Keep Calm & Keep Junkin'!


  1. Congratulations on reaching 100 followers. I'm a follower and love the Easter Give away. Great finds too. Blessings, Vicky

  2. You made it to 100 quick! Congrats! And now just who had stuff out on the curb?

    The picture of the girls at the top. The cute one on the right is me, isn't she? (Actually she does look like my mother in her youth.)

    That fabulous estate sale today was, well, less than fabulous. You didn't miss anything.

  3. Happy 100 Followers! Wonderful! I am a follower and enjoy your blog very much. I mean anyone who digs in curbside discards and finds such cute puzzles is my kind of Queen, cranky or not! Enjoy your weekend! hugs, Linda

  4. Congratulations! I'm already a follower & will share you on FB. I'm new to blogging & have so much to learn. My page is a bit boring! As I read all the blogs & see such wonderful pictures & ideas, I'm inspired. Hoping to have time to experiment with a new blog background & become more proficient at this process. I enjoy your posts!

  5. Congratulations on 100. I am already a follower and love your Easter give away!! Blessings ~ Tanna

I was actually moved enough to drop a thought :) I actually do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it simply me or does it look as if like a few of the comments come across as if they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing at other sites, I would like to keep up with you. Could you list the complete urls of your shared sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
