...well, I'm ahead of myself. I made these Swarovski Four Leaf Clover - Shamrock earrings with an Oregon Sunstone bead on top for my giveaway to thank all my readers for their visits. I also made a stitch marker for the 2nd prize. I gave 1 entry for the comment, a 2nd entry if you're a follower and a 3rd if you have my blog on your blog list (if you blog.. :-).. )
I wrote all the names, sometimes 3 times, on a piece of paper right before noon today, then cut them all out with scissors. I'm an old fashioned blogger, ya know. :-)
And going with my scientific drawing theme, my trusty sidekick (hubby) did the drawing.
The winner of the earrings is Harriet from Hilly T Blog!! *C*O*N*G*R*A*T*U*L*A*T*I*O*N*S*!* Please email me your home address and I'll get these in the mail on Monday! (My assistant needs a manicure!)
And the winner of the stitch marker is....
Susan from "Mary Jane's Tearoom"! *C*O*N*G*R*A*T*U*L*A*T*I*O*N*S*!* please email me your home address so I can get these to you on Monday! :-) This was fun!Now, on to other late breaking news.. :-) My bloggy friends and I met for lunch at Boccelli's Ristorante. We all surprised each other with little tokens of our friendship with each other. Betsy crocheted a shamrock pin, Gracie gave us each a cute little sheep button and Taci also made us a shamrock pin. I gave everyone a little glass ladybug bead stitch marker!
I like this photo of all of my friends hands.. as it's our hands that make neat things that we have in common.. :-)
Taci and I.. dang, she's so much cuter than I am! :-)
Lamp-worked glass lady bug.I brought my 2 shawl WIPs to share with my friends - Taci is modeling my Drops Alpaca Japanese Flower shawl.. I have so much more to do on this it isn't funny. Taci loved the feel of the alpaca.

Taci and Betsy had to head off after lunch, but Gracie and I decided to check out another antique store.. I thought you'd enjoy seeing this white dresser from the 20s-30s and the pink and red glass collection on top.
I also liked this white armoire filled with vintage linens and lace.
I fell in love with this beautiful white Hotpoint General Electric range.. swoon.. what I wouldn't give to have a kitchen with this in it. I didn't even LOOK at the price. I'd have to buy a house to put it in. LOL!
Well, I better put this post up - I hope the winners are happy! I will have to do this more often. I have a sunny day to enjoy! We have a dozen of our home raised hen eggs on the stove to boil, we're making egg salad sandwiches for lunch. I hope you're enjoying your weekend as much as I am!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
