Ya’ll made my week!! I got such a kick out of this contest & it was so much fun watching lots of you newbies “come out of the closet”, so to speak. Thanks for being good sports & saying hello. Now I feel like I know more of you out there who are stopping by all the time. You really have no idea how good it makes me feel to know that you all enjoy my blog & look forward to new posts. That keeps me going! I have saved a bunch of new blog links & when I get a chance I’ll come & visit you too. It’s getting harder & harder for me to go & visit everyone that I’d like to, so I hope you understand. My schedule only leaves me limited time to keep up with my posts & I’m afraid visiting has to take a backseat much of the time. So, you get posts…or visits…not both most of the time! LOL I’ll try to make the next 100 fun & informative too.
I chose the winners using the Random # Generator thingy and now without further delay…the winners are:
Grand Prize – Lyndy, of Oh, Fiddle Dee Dee won the top prize & gets to choose 3 things out of my shop. Lyndy is in Canton, GA, which is close to where I used to live.
Prize # 2 – Goes to MimiG – Mimi, I do not have an email address for you, so I hope you’ll check in. You get to choose 2 items out of my shop. I have actually met Mimi before. We were acquainted from another decorating board from long ago & Mimi popped up at my yardsale that I had at my house last year & recognized me. It truly is a small world. Mimi, do you still live in Birmingham??
Prize # 3 – Goes to Amy in Prattville. Amy, you get to choose 1 item from the shop. How about that! The random thingy chose all Southern girls & I had nothing to do with how it landed. Amy, I don’t think I have your email either, so give me a holler.
Y’all can all email me at [email protected] with your choices & mailing addresses. Lyndy gets to choose first, then Mimi, then Amy, so I hope y’all aren’t all fighting over the same stuff. There’s plenty to go around! Go ahead & choose and email me & then I’ll let you know if there are items that more than one of you want.
EDITED TO ADD: Mimi & Amy, Lyndy has already chosen her 3 & they are: Angel candleholder, Gold cherub lamp, & the Mama/Baby Bunny figurine. So, the rest is up for grabs!
Now I bet you are all glad you posted this time, huh?! I’ve got a few yardsale things to share with you, so I’ll post those in the next couple of days. I thoroughly enjoyed this contest! Y’all were so much fun. And I have a few new blogs to check out too!
After all the prizes are chosen, I will be having a HUGE SALE to liquidate all the merchandise left in my shop (it will be great, I promise), so please check back in the next couple of days!!! It ALL has to go! If I’m going to do this shop again in the Spring, I have to move out what I have now.
Several of you asked about putting the signature on your blog. It’s easy & I learned from Kari’s blog, Just Livin’ Large (that girl is a hoot, BTW, so go & visit her if you haven’t already). She was talking about it recently & so I took the instructions someone gave her & did it myself. Go here to My Live Signature and follow the instructions. It’s pretty easy, but if you have problems, email me & I’ll walk yo through it. It’s a wizard-type program & really works easy. You pick the font, color, size & slant, then save it all & it will give you the html code to put on your blog. THEN, you go to Settings, Formatting, and under there you’ll see a box that says Post Template. COPY the html code that My Live Signature generates for your signature & paste it in this box. Everytime you open a new post, it will have your signature there. You can edit & change it just the way you want. Isn’t that cool?? I love it. Thanks, Kari for sharing with us!

How exciting!!! I’ve relocated to Jacksonville; but, I really enjoyed meeting y’all AND eating at California Kitchen.
I’ll let you know what my choices are – you’re great for doing this.
