First of all, before I divulge who the winners are, I would like to thank everyone who participated in my blogiversary giveaway. I wish I had something for each and every one of you as you are all so very important to me. Unfortunately, that would be impossible; but as promised, I have drawn a second name for reaching my goal of 300 followers. I had 102 comments left on my blog post and after adding in all the extra points that could be earned there were 184 entries. So if you look at the winning entry numbers, they probably will not match. Mr. Wonderful picked the winning numbers for me and they are:

Her dress is made from quilt shop quality fabric. The apron is cut from an antique feedsack with the "Bemis" logo reproduced on the front.

I thought that title might get your attention. Two of our favorite things in one post....heehee! Look what Daniel found today when he went to the mailbox. He had a rough time hauling the package to the house as it was bigger than him but were we excited to see it.

Sorry....Image has been removed of envelope.

I joined in on the fun with a dishtowel swap that was sponsored by Kendra of The Stone House Primitives This was my first swap and I was so excited.
Our swap partner was to be kept a secret until our package arrived and so I just found out that Kendra had my name. Here are the special goodies that came in my package....

she made me an awesome dishtowel that includes all of my favorites...the color is mustard/brown and she embroidered my favorite saying "Simple Blessings" along with the sweetest little sheep. Seeing all of these things on my blog she knew I would love it and she was right. And that's not all...she also included two "Shrubbies" that are cloth on one side and scrubber on the other. I have never seen any of these before but I will bet that they will be my new "go to" for my kitchen cleaning chores.

Thank you sooo much Kendra! I love everything! Your embroidery work is beautiful. If you have not had a chance to stop by Kendra's blog I hope you will. She is currently having a giveaway for the cutest little door hanger bunny you ever saw. Check out the bunny's cute little face and all the detail that she has put into making it so precious. Don't wait too long, the giveaway ends on March 20th and you certainly don't want to miss out! You can find Kendra's blog HERE

I am having a springtime giveaway right now and have had several new bloggers leaving the sweetest comments and wanting to be entered in the giveaway. If you have a "no reply" setting to the comment you leave and do not have a blog, please make sure you stop back by and leave me your email address in another comment. If I draw your name for the giveaway and do not have a way to contact you, I will be forced to draw another name. I would hate to have to do that.

hugs and smiles,

The Cincinnati feedsack logo has been reproduced on the front. A huge "thank you" to my friend, Mary of Marmmies Mammy's and More

She is wearing her favortie hat and holds a bouquet of yellow posies and her rusty watering can.

Beings this is a special blogiversary celebration, I plan to add some more goodes to the giveaway but haven't made up my mind what those will be. So we will keep it a surprise till I annouce a winner :-)
