October Winner

October 8, 2011 | My Jottings

Instead of using random.org as I have in the past, to determine this month’s bloggy giveaway winner, I used an old fashioned method.

My sister-in-law Christy is here visiting us from Tennessee this week, and I enlisted her help in choosing the winner, and you can see her doing just that below. I was so happy to see so many people enter — thank you all so much! I wish I had books for all of you, but I’ll do another giveaway next month.

Here’s the method we used to choose the winner today:

Tauni! You won a copy of The Hawk and the Dove and also the first sequel The Hardest Thing to Do, by Penelope Wilcock. Please email me your address!

The marvelous author of these books has graciously agreed to send me personalized and autographed stickers to put inside both copies. As soon as I receive them, I’ll mail the books to you, Tauni.

Thank you all for reading and commenting…..I had such a good time getting to know all of you a little bit from your great comments about what fall means to you.

Have a blessed weekend,

    Stickers can go in the post to you tomorrow – I’ll write 2 sets, one assuming the books are for Tauni herself and one nor personalised to Tauni in case she was thinking of giving them to someone else as a gift. x

    Thank you so much, Ember. 🙂

    I am coveting the beautiful blue bowl that you put all of our names in for the drawing. I know that it’s not good to covet other’s things; but I am.

    Thank you Patty…I think those same thoughts lately about red kitchen cabinets. Pretty unbelievable, I know. 🙂
