I used a random number generator because it sounded all fancy and mysterious, but, really, I could have just drawn a number from a hat. The winner of the necklace give-away is Bixi and Goxi ! I'll need your name and address, please. She is from Germany and she wrote:
What a lovely necklace! I live in Stuttgart / Germanyand I love the variety around here: You have museums, art gallerys but also a lot of nature, wood and parks nearby.
Thanks to everyone who participated. I loved reading the little descriptions of where you live. I found myself imagining the mountains, far away lands, the little flowered yards on the way to the beach, the CSA farm under the highway, and more. It helped me to feel a little more connected to those who visit and support my site. I'll do another in a few months or so.
I actually went thrifting on July 4th. Who knew that the The Trading Post, the newly expanded thrift store down the road from me, would be open on a national holiday. There they were munching pizza, welcoming people to their lovely shop. I scored big! Along with the bowl (only $2.00) and free buttons (how nice of them), I also bought one of those fold-up suitcase holders for people who come to visit and a little side table for Miss Mouse's room. Tom finished building one of Mouse's closets yesterday, so we got to do some reorganizing in her room.
I'm off to enjoy a sunny afternoon at the park with tom and girls.
