It's Time

There were over 800 entries ( WOW! ),
and I want to thank each and every person that
commented, followed, or posted about it...

but the time has come to pick a winner
of my 

Up for grabs:
The Summer issue of  Romantic Country magazine
with my Willow Nest photo feature

a personally autographed copy of
signed by Fifi O'Neill herself
I did the random schmandom thing, 
and the lucky winner is...

Denise of  

Congrats, Denise!

Since I was such a geek and bought out entire newsstands,
I may be doing another magazine related giveaway
in the days ahead, so please check back.

 In other news, I finally decided on a camera strap...

It's called the Sofia Olive, and although I purchased it
at a camera shop, you can browse their selection HERE.

I bought it because it looks like my Homestead couch!

 Don't you think?

And guess what else?

Look who I get to meet next week?

The gorgeous and talented Suzanne of Privet and Holly!

She and her sweet mom will be making a swing through
Fredericksburg, Texas, so I hope to be able to show them all the sights.


Finally, I'm not a numbers watcher at all, but I just noticed that the odometer
just turned over to 2K...
thank you and welcome to all my new followers,
and to my faithful friends from way back, thanks for sticking with me!

I know that these giveaways always create a bump in the numbers,
but I really hope that y'all will stick around for the regular day-to-day
here on this blog.
I count myself as so fortunate to have even one of you
deeming me worthy of following, so know that you are very much appreciated!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!

Congrats Denise!

Of course you would pick your camera strap to match your sofa. Who wouldn't? I've been thinking of making a cover for my strap, but I don't like the color of my sofa, so might have to base it on something else.
