And the Winner Is..........



A big thank you to everyone who left a comment and congratulated me on my 100th post! You have all made this so much fun and I sincerely thank you for all your support and encouragement!

Today is the day to select the name of the winner of my first "Give Back" .........



I was surprised to have so many entries and must thank those of you who posted my "Give Back" on your blog......I made sure to enter your names twice!



This celebratory contest enabled me to meet many more bloggers and blog readers and introduced me to numerous other inspirational and wonderful blogs......



I asked my daughter Kate to select one name from the hat.......Kate pulled out the name ..........."Stina".............

Looking back over my comments .... this is what Stina wrote:

Congratulations! Thanks to The feathered nest I just discovered your blog and your giveaway. I want to take part of it. I like vintage things, such as silky ribbons, wirework, mother of pearl, lace, funny metal pieces. Please, just send me something not too heavy, as I live in Sweden. May 11th is my birthday, so I'm hoping for a birthday present.
Your blog looks great with wonderful photos.
Stina

So, Congratulations to Stina in Sweden! and Happy Birthday too! I guess it was her lucky day! I think I have just the thing for Stina and will enjoy wrapping up her present.....it has a long trip ahead of it!

What a fabulous hat. I would wear that while drinking Pimms on the lawn.

What a lovely birthday present! I think that all makes us feel better about not being the winners this time...
I love the way you and your daughter made the choice - very pretty. I shall have to think of an appropriately Franco-Scottish way to do my draw next week!
