It Is the One Year Anniversary
of Mysteries and My Musings.

They did this hoping to meet all of you!


Below are the prizes and the suppliers

who are on board to make this a memorable event.

Please take a peek at what they are providing to our

Blogoversary event - you might find some early holiday

or gift ideas while you are at it!

Disclaimer:  Prizes are shipping directly from the shops/companies providing them.

The winners are listed below with the photos.
I shall be forwarding email addresses to the shop owners and winners should be notified by them shortly.

performed with tenderness in simple, homey places like the kitchen table."

Winner:  expogenic

Winner:  k_sunshine1977

For 48 hours we will be all about celebrating one year of Mystery and Suspense and you have a front row seat.
