She's A Winner!!!

                I made a list........

                               I checked it twice.....

                                  Rolled up the names.....

                                      Being very precise!

                          They looked so sweet ....
                               Sitting in that jar......
                                  But I soon realized.....
                                      My hand wouldn't reach far (enough)!

                          So out they came.....

                                And into a hat.....

                                   Still rolled up tight....

                                      And that's a fact!

                         I shook and flipped....

                               And shook some more.....

                                   Unfurled the paper.....

                                     And y.o..u..r.."re...

                                    THE WINNER!!!

                                      HOPE ELLINGTON!!!!!!

Hope, would you please email me home address and I will get this ..

                                          and this........

                                 .... in the mail to you!                 

I sincerely thank all of you who entered and those that posted such sweet
and thoughtful comments!  Being my first give-away, it was kind of scary...
aren't all things that are new??  Would people respond?  Would anyone
even enter?  But you did!  And that just makes me feel so grateful!  Next time,
my give-away won't be a destination but something that will appeal to 
everyone no matter where you live.  I won't say a word now but just know it will be coming soon.... !!  Getting excited just thinking about it!!!

                             Thanks again!!!!
