Just popping in to announce the winner of my recent Giveaway.  A week ago, to help celebrate the revamping of my blog and as a bit of a thank you to all of my readers for having stuck with me over these past six difficult months, I decided to host a giveaway!

Included in the Giveaway was my favorite all time cookbook, The Fanny Farmer Cookbook.  One of my hand crocheted dish clothes and a hand embroidered tea towel, again my handiwork.

As a second prize I was offering someone the opportunity to receive all of my little cook-booklets. 

I truly wish that I could give each one of you something, but alas, my pockets are not that deep. I want you all to know that you are winners to me, and I very much appreciate your visits, comments, etc.  There is nothing more exciting to me than having someone make one of my recipes and then taking the time to report back and share their experience with all of us.  It really does make my day.  

I am not a tech savant and so I used a random numbers generator to pick numbers from the comments which were left here at the blog.  Without further adieu, here are the winners: 

For the cookbook, dish cloth and tea towel . . . 


Congratulations to Laurie Powers!  I think Laurie has been visiting my page now for a very long time. If I am not mistaken we know each other from way back in our Recipe Zaar days, but I could be wrong!


Laurie, if you could please e-mail me or message me with your mailing details, I will pop that gift into the mail to you post haste!  Congratulations! 

And now for the winner of the cook-booklets!  

I have eleven cook-booklets which retail at a cost of 5 pounds sterling each or the equivalent of $6.96 USD.  That makes this a very nice prize also.  

Congratulations Linda!  (The Linda who made this comment below.)  You are the lucky winner.


If you could please send me your email address I will e-mail you the booklets. It will take a while because I need to send each one individually.

Congratulations to you both.  Thank you so much to everyone who participated. Its been great fun. You never know, I may hold another giveaway soon.  Stay tuned! 

Thank you so much to everyone!
