All 49 names of those who commented on my "give away" post, and wished to participate, were written out by my husband and placed in one of his hats.
He folded the paper slips very small and tight, mixed them all up, and then picked out one slip!
Ta Dah! Here is the winning name! Susie Q of Rabbit Run Cottage !
Congratulations Sue! Please e-mail your address to me and I'll send my little package of treats from Ireland to you right away.
Thank you to everyone who entered! I wish I had something for each and every one of you!
I do enjoy ALL of your blogs so much. I learn new things from all of you, and I enjoy sharing a slice of your life.
Some of you live around the world, and Nihal's blog Cross Roads , had a beautiful and interesting post today about Cambodia that was a pleasure to read.
Nihal lives in Istanbul, Turkey, and I met her through M. Kate's blog LA VIE EST BELLE
M. Kate lives in Malaysia, and had sent post cards recently to Nihal, and myself, from her vacation in Cambodia. Thanks so much M. Kate! After visiting both of your blogs I feel as if I took a trip around the world!
I am always flattered when someone tells me that my blog takes them to a place they wish they could visit. It makes me appreciate my little life in Brooklyn, New York. It is not a rich and glamorous one, but I am very grateful for all of my life's blessings.
When I see so many of your beautiful homes and gardens on your blogs, and your beautiful locations, be it the West, the South, the South West, New England, the Mid West, Canada, Australia and South America; I am in awe of you, just as much as many of you are of my living in New York City!
When I see your crafts and recipes, hear about your community, read about your children and grand children's activities, and discover new and interesting information from your blog, I feel enriched.
Thanks so much, all of you, for being my blog friends!
