And the winner is . . .


It is September 1 and the winners are in for my Giveaway.

I wanted to be fair, so I had to do a little manipulation.

There were 81 comments, but some people commented more than 1 time which gave them a better chance of winning.

Some commented, but did not want to be included in the Giveaway for a variety of reasons such as my sister-in-law Carrell doesn't need a Giveaway to get a set of napkins from me, but she and Gary do need to head south to pick them up.

Maybe I should make that a requirement for the next Giveaway- a trip to the beach to pick up your prize.

I would love to read the "Suzan said, John said" at Simply Vintageous by Suzan if she won and explained to John that they needed to leave Montreal and head to California to pick up a gift.


Anyway, back to the Giveaway.

When doubles and non-participants were removed, the number was 72.


The winner of the napkins, table runner and tags is Sara of Hyacinths for the Soul.

I can't wait to see the beautiful table Sara creates (and she creates amazing tablescapes) with the simple napkins.

It was hard to read every comment and not give something to everyone, which I definitely cannot do, but I did do two more random number generators.

Second Place is Stacy of Poofing the Pillows.

I am not sure what I will put in a package to Stacy, but I have some fun ideas..

Third place is Ricki of Art@ Home.

I know exactly what I will make for Ricki, but it will be a week or two before it is finished.

Thank you to all of the people who left such sweet messages about the napkins, table runners and tags.

I am working on a whole lot of different projects in the month of September, more about that tomorrow, and if all goes as planned, there will be another Giveaway at the end of the month.

All the winners need to e-mail me the address where I will mail the packages.


And now, from the look on Little Lulu's face, I think it is time to leave the laptop and play.

Sarah said...

Oh, what exciting news! I was shocked and elated to see my name as the winner of your special napkins and table runner. Carol, I'm thrilled!
You are so sweet! I look forward to receiving this gift and setting a new table in your honor. Actually I'd love an excuse to fly out to CA, especially for a beach trip. Wish I could sprout wings and do just that. Will send you an email with my addy. Now you need to go play with Lulu. Sadie is at my feet wanting to do the same. '-)
Happy Day! ~ Sarah
