And The Winner Is???

Let me first start off by thanking each and every person who commented on my giveaway post...

Thank you to Susan, Sherry, Denise, Nancy S, Joann, Sandy, Melissa, Rosa, Rachel, Serafina, Bela, Janie, Nancy M, Silvia, Katherine, and Morwenna!

I was so pleased with the turnout.  There were sixteen names entered into the draw.  It was such a pleasure reading the comments from my usual readers, as well as those from welcome new faces.  Thank you all!  Your sweet comments and birthday wishes made me SMILE.

Well, let's get on with the giveaway!

These are all the names entered in the draw

Names were folded twice and put in a hat

 Watch the little video...

I was pretty shocked to see my Mom's name pulled out of the hat!  She commented on my post and it was only fair to enter her name in the contest. So in all fairness, Rosa (my mom) is the winner.  CONGRATULATIONS MOM! 

I thought the winner was really close to home, so I had to give someone outside my close circle a chance.  I decided to draw another name for a runner up prize.  It gave me an excuse to do a little extra shopping today.  Here is the second prize:

 A set of six microfiber cloths, a chocolate mousse hazlenut Lindt bar,
a box of Scottish Shortbread cookies and a champagne bottle candle!

I will be in contact with you soon.

I truly wish everyone could have won, but unfortunately, only one can win (or two)!  I will definitely be doing another giveaway in the near future.  Thank you to all who participated.  I really appreciate the time you take to leave comments and let me me know, "Hey, I'm here, and I'm reading this!".  It means so much.
