to Cindy at
You're the winner of my
First Year Give-Away.
Choosing the winner was a bit
different than I had planned.
I was going to get DH to pull a
name out of the hat this morning
but I forgot that he was going to
have lunch with his daughter on his
way home from work so would be late.
I was willing to wait.
However...as I got up to run to the bathroom
I knocked over the hat with all the names.
As I was coming back to the computer I saw
a little fuzzy feline running off with
one of the names!
By the time I caught up with her she had
dropped the paper and had run off.
A light bulb came on and I thought
So Cindy...this is how your name was chosen.
who took the time to enter!
Thank you also to those who have
been with me since the beginning and
who have faithfully followed along
on this adventure.
And to those who have just
joined up for the ride...
I look forward to seeing your
comments and I hope you
enjoy your visits to our cottage in the country.
I look forward to many more happy
Last month DH and I made it to the large
flea market that happens
every month except for July and August
not far from our home.
There were quite a few booths missing
this time but the weatherman had been
predicting bad weather so that probably explains it.
I had been looking for a large white enamel
pitcher but never did see one.
I did see lots of other items...
some even came home with us.
I love these teddies above
made from old worn quilts.
They may be raggedy to some
but to me they have history.
I love that old worn soft look.
And for $6.50 for both of them
I couldn't resist!
I also love aprons and this one
caught my eye right away.
Look at those hankie pockets!
See the button at the top?
My favorite find was this mailbox.
It's an old one and attached to an
old farm hedge post!
It still has the name of the
original owners on the side.
The letters are pretty faded but in the sun
you can just make it out.
This baby will have a special place
in the picket fence garden this summer.
I can't wait to get started planting
but I have to be patient.
again to Cindy!
Please send me an email
with your mailing address etc.
I hope you all have a wonderful week
and HEY...tomorrow is the 1st of March.
Spring will soon be here!
