And The Winner Is...

...well, I have to keep you in a little suspense.

My give-away package included a burlap tote from Williams-Sonoma, a wooden salad server set, and wooden salt & pepper shakers, both sets from Anthropologie, and from Pier One there was a woven star-shaped basket, decorative gems, and a set of memo notes:

Twenty-three people left comments on my give-away post and my international friends very kindly told me not to include them as they felt it would be too expensive to ship the items, but I included you ALL in the drawing.
I had the help of my grandson, Jayden, as he ripped strips of paper for me to write the names on, then folded each in half, and we used my granddaughter's little duck pail to draw the name from. Jayden mixed them all up, stuck his hand in the bucket and...

...he drew out ...


Rebecca @ Life & Godliness, actually Rebecca has a few blogs, each one wonderful as she shares her faith, her family, her thrift shopping, her home decorating, her gardening, her travels, her home-improvements, and her self-improvements with us!
Congratulations, Rebecca!

You can email me at to let me know where to mail your winnings.
