And The Winners ARE...

...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. 
 The Ladies That Lunch Club (name courtesy of Meredith at Mereknits!)
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 :-)  


  1. Congratulations to the winners, and thanks for another lovely giveaway, Teresa!

    It was a fun gathering yesterday! [I gave the sheep buttons :-)]

    Over in our neighborhood today I can hear a lawnmower running, a sure sign that Spring will soon be sprung, and I am imagining you and Dayle enjoying the sunshine...and yummy egg salad sandwiches!

  6. Congrats to your lucky winners :)
    Your gathering of friends for lunch and gift giving looks like it was fun. I sure miss the Wednesday evenings when our knit group would gather for this sort of thing. It was ages ago, back when my oldest wasn't even born yet (36 years ago). We women were like a bunch of hens, we had a great time!
    (((HUGS))) Susanne :)

  7. CoNgRaTuLaTiOnS to the winners! What lucky ladies they are.

    I had such a great time yesterday with the three of you. The restaurant was absolutely wonderful. Yummy food, yarn and chatter=a perfect time together. I just wish I had more time to spend with you at the antique store. One of these visits I'm going to plan the entire afternoon with you three,

    I would love to have that stove too and the chance to dig through those vintage linens. Hope to see you Friday.

  8. Nice post! Lots of fun with the ladies at lunch. Good things to share with one another. Hooray for your earring winner!!!

Good morning Teresa...Oh my goodness, I was reading your post thinking how lucky your winners are to receive such pretty gifts and then I realised I have won your beautiful stitch marker!(I had to read it several times!) You have made my day lovely friend! (I'm going to call this my Scarlett O'Hara stitch marker because it makes me think of her and it will have a very special place in my craft room)
