And the winner is...

I apologize in advance for the lack of photos, but I'm posting from an old computer. Long story. I just wanted to be sure I announced the winner when I said I was gonna. I used a random number generator to pick, but I couldn't get that to show up here either. But what I did was number each comment in order that they were recieved, then I went back and marked those that got an extra for posting on their blog, and recorded those in order. So without further ado, our winner is:

Karen from My Colonial Home!

I received so many sweet comments, and appreciate every one of them. I wish I could send something to each of you. Even better is that I've found so many new great blogs to read! This was so much fun, I'm already thinking about the next giveaway. Thank you all so much for playing!

A little Spring Giveaway...

I've been super busy, working on several projects here around the house, but most are still not quite finished, so I have little to share. I'm putting the finishing touches on both the boy's bedrooms, they still need valances on the windows and one bed needs a skirt to hide the scary mess that always seems to be there. I'll share some pix of those when they're all done. I'll have to be quick, cause you know they won't stay clean for long. Well, not what they call "Mom clean" anyway! I've also been cleaning out the flower beds and landscaping outside. The weather has been gorgeous here, so I'm enjoying being outside, and can begin planting in mid April. My house is mostly in chaos as I try to Springify and lighten everything up.  Here's the only area I'm somewhat happy with so far. I love my giant island, but everything tends to get lost on it, so I tried to think big. I love to mix my primitive stuff with more European Country/Farmhouse things. It's just what this house calls for, and I'm tryin' to listen!

I bought the smallest pitcher at an antique mall years ago. The other two were finds at the Thrift store. I'm sure I paid under $5.00 each for them.

I've also been working on a little giveaway. I appreciate each and every reader, so I've put together a Spring Offering...
Included is a cute Chubby Bunny that I made from a Kentucky Primitives pattern, a wire basket filled with 6 paper mache eggs, and a little paper covered journal. All are distressed for a warm old look. The momogram on the journal will be replaced with the winner's initial of choice. (The K isn't permanently affixed) Sorry, my beloved blue chair isn't included! I will choose a winner by random drawing on Thursday, March 25th. I know that's not a lot of sign up time, but I want to be sure it arrives at least a bit before Easter. So, here are the rules...

*You must be a follower of my blog. You can sign up on the side bar- New followers are welcome!

*You must leave a comment here on this post so I'll have y'all in one place for the drawing.

*If you post a link on your blog, let me know, and I'll throw your name in twice!
(I don't know how to do the little pix for the sidebar, but you are welcome to use the photo for that if you want)

So that's it! I'm linking up with Leslie at My Country Home for Whatcha Working on Wednesday. Be sure to stop by to check it out. Leslie's always up to something good, she's been sewing up some really nice accessories lately.
Wishing you all a lovely day!
