 For helping me reach my 50 followers

I have enjoyed reading each and every comment that you all have written...Your words have been inspirational, amusing, revealing, thoughtful, caring, helpful, and many more adjectives that I cannot think of at this time. 

The one adjective that sticks in my mind however, is memorable. I have to say memorable is my favorite, because all of you have made it possible for not only me, but my other followers to peek inside your lives with every comment that you post.

Even though many miles separate us all, in these past two short months that I started this blog, I have met some very extraordianry friends who have opened both their hearts and homes to me. It is with great pleasure, that I call each of you my blogging sisters...oops, I forgot; I do have on blogger brother too!

Now for the good stuff...I took every comment and every follower name and added those to a box. In addition, those who mentioned by secret giveaway were also given another chance to win. I shook up the names really, really good...sorry we did this at the store and did not have my camera with me to show the names...but I did mix up the names, and also added today's followers and comments...mixed everything together and had Bob pick the winning name....

The winning comment was posted on 4/26/11

This is what the winner said:

What a great history lesson...I have sold a few hat pins and now I wish I hadn't - I may have a new collection to start...(big smile) !! Great Post - wish I could attend your club meetings!

The winner is Judy over at the Cinnamon Stick
