♥♫ Give Away ♥♫

After school I read a text from Sarah asking if I'd drawn the winner! Answer~no. Yesterday was the last day, I thought it only fair to wait until 12:00 midnight, MST. I went to bed soon after I finished freezing my wonderful Colorado peaches--going to school and coming home to work in the kitchen made me TIRED because I am getting O. L. D. ! I wasn't planning on getting up at 12:01 a.m. to pick a name, the drawing had to wait until I got home from school.
First I folded the paper to have enough boxes for all the names. Then I wrote the names down, omitting Sarah's comment and inserting Joyce (she emailed me). Next I cut them up, folded them tightly so no names were peeking out at me, and put them in my favorite red bowl. Mixed them up again and again.
And pulled out Donna's name! Congratulations my friend!
Thanks to everyone that played with me and left comments. Because I wish you all were the winner, I'd like to send you some blue flax seeds from my garden. So, if you were one of my playmates, and would like the seeds, please email me with your mailing address.
This plant with blue flowers is flax. Pretty sky blue blossoms! Thanks again for writing comments on the give away post! ♥♫

Hi Marilyn,

Thank you very much for stopping by the other day. I loved your comment about the Homer Laughlin dishes and why you like them (so funny about your mom using hers outside for cat bowls!). Congrats to Donna!

Hope you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
Bill
