And the WINNER is....

Wow! I am so excited to say that I got so many comments on the post about making the tea pot bird bath! I have done the draw, and will tell you about that in a minute.
First, I wanted to thank you who mentioned me in your posts, and have sent so many new people to my blog spaces. I appreciate the plugs. I also loved reading the tips for folding and the cute comments you have left me about not just this project, but all the others as well.

Starting tomorrow morning you will be getting some tips for fall prep for your garden, and some seed collecting advice. I am not happy to give this information out, as it means that fall is on it's way, and that shortly after that, winter will be here...but such is life and I have no choice as to what Mother Nature will do to us, so we may as well be ready!

Okay...on to the big event!

So many entries!
I wrote you all out on equal sized pieces of paper.....see?

I folded them all ....see?

I put you all into a bowl.....

Shook it up really good to mix it in fairly....see?

and now....
My lovely assistants will make the official draw......can I get a drum roll please?
ta da!

The winner of the tea pot Bird Bath is......
wait for it..

wait for it....
okay enough tootsie.
The winner of Tootsie's Tea Pot Bird Bath is..........

Doesn't she look excited? lol (this is a photo I borrowed from her blog)
I am so excited to give this to my blogging friend. I met her on RMS and she has some lovely flowers in her gardens. I just know this will be a nice addition to the view. AND each time she looks at it...she can think of her friend Tootsie. order to give this to her...I need her to send me her address! I need her to go into my comments and leave me her mailing address and let me know where to send this! (no worries Jess...the comments are moderated...and I won't publish your address)

The next order of business is for me to figure out how to package this piece up, so that it does not arrive in a million pieces! now...where did I put that bubble wrap.....?!?!?!
I still have another tea pot, and cups, so you never know...there could be another draw in the making!....or maybe, I will come up with another idea to draw for...this is so much fun!

Thanks to all that entered and who have been such loyal readers and commenters! My guest book is really filling up...and I love it!

Shucks!!! But I am so happy for Jessica that it makes up for my disappointment, she is such a sweetie and I can't wait to see where she puts it.
Got back home last evening, now I am sure I cleaned this house before I left but it sure doesn't look like it now.
