I've been lucky, too! In recent months (OK, many, because some of these go back to last fall!) I've won a few things and want to thank...
Jean from Delightful Repast -- I've been enjoying the tea that came with this adorable teapot since fall!
Pam from Everyday Living for a subscription to Southern Lady. (Which, by the way, is a terrific magazine.)
(incidentally, on page 13 in the lower right corner of the current issue, you'll find a photo of Pam's gorgeous garden!)
Sylvia from SMD Greetings for her cute Teddy Bear calendar!
And I've sent out a few prizes recently too! In December I had my 10th Blog Anniversary drawing and the winners were Jenny, Valerie and Bella. Instead of just pulling something from the Gypsy Caravan I decided to do watercolors for each, based on a photo they had taken and shown on their blog.
This was the inspiration photo for Bella.
And here is my version of her Porch Pup.
Valerie's beautiful photos were hard to choose from but I loved the simplicity of this still life.
And here is it in watercolor.
I thought Jenny's wonderful image of the shrine at Miyajima in Japan would be the easiest because of its clean, straight lines and simple colors.
But it was the hardest! Some things always surprise you!
I had loads of fun doing them.
Thanks to all who have come by to read and sign up or who were generous enough to offer drawings that I was lucky enough to win!

I recently passed by my old elementary school -- the place where I walked daily, five blocks from home. The place where I learned to read an...
The trouble with leaving for a trip in early October is that I'm just not ready to go full-fall in the decor line. But when I return the...
