500th Post Give-Back Winner



After an 8 1/2 road trip today, which included a flat tire and a torrential rain storm Dan and I arrived at the lake house.

I would tell you all about it but I know you are here to find out who the lucky winner of the 52 FLEA 500th Post Give-Back is...

So, without further delay...




The randomly selected winner is Aimee of The Daily Apron!
Congratulations Aimee!
We will have to see what Aimee's pleasure is and which option she chooses...




Many thanks to all of you for playing along...
I wish I could give back to each and every one of you...
Your comments, friendship and kindness mean so much to me!


I hope the week ahead brings all good things...

...and now...
to bed!
