And The Winner Is...

I don't know where my head was at when I calculated that I would reach my 5oth post on or around the 17th of March. I know math was always my worst subject, but I didn't think it was THAT bad!

Sam asked me last night if I had done the drawing for my first giveaway. When I checked and reported back to him that I was only on my 39th post, he said 50 at the earliest would be eleven days away and to just get on with it.

So 'on with it' I went. I printed off all the comments that were left on the give away post, cut them apart and added the extra entries for referrals. They were then placed into a basket.


Sam agreed to do the drawing while I took the photos. Nothing scientific here. Into the basket went his hand...


He swished around a couple of times and picked out an entry.


I'm trying my darndest to learn how to enable my photos to enlarge by clicking on them but to no avail so you can't even have a sneak peek. Maybe if you squint hard enough, you'll see that the winner of my lamp is...


Candace, of Squash House Quilts.

Oh, oh...one more thing to pack! If you read Candace's blog, you'll see that she and her husband just recently listed their house for sale. Sorry Candace...but you'll see when you receive it that it's not very big and won't take up too much room in the moving van! If you email me with your snail mail address, I'll have it out to you lickety-split!

Thanks to everyone who participated by leaving a comment on my blog. Please drop by again because one never knows when the moment will strike for my next give away.
