Blog Giveaway Winner on Our 25th Anniversary!

Blog Giveaway Winner on Our 25th Anniversary!

Thank you all for entering my blog giveaway and for my new followers. I hope you will drop by often (when I have time to post and to visit everyone around!) and see what I am up to!
Above you see us on our wedding day, June 22, 1985 and now at the surprise party our children and my in-law's threw us Saturday evening! My children had cleaned the house to a sparkle and invited about 70 of our closest friends! It was wonderful. All Jerry had been told was to take me out of town for the day and we went to the North Carolina mountains including Hendersonville and Brevard. We came home to a wonderful party! So I would like to thank them!
The names were put in the bowl for my giveaway and Joanna picked the winner:
Congratulations to my friend, Katie from Katie's Clay Corner! She and I have been blogging about our mini's for about three years now and I have been the recipient of some items from her that will go in Joanna's nursery when I ever get her house finished! Katie, I will e-mail you for your address! Hope you can use these items in your mini project! Congratulations!

Here's hoping you reach your diamond 60th anniversary one day! Both sets of my grandparents did, but one set had the added incentive of a telegram from the Queen.

Your giveaway stuff is lovely! I don't know which end of a needle to hold, so anything sewn has me in awe.

Sadly, I don't own a dollhouse, so I tend not to enter giveaways as I'd wouldn't make such good use of them as others could. But one day, when I have the time and space for a dollhouse, I hope bloggers will still be running such cute giveaways!
