I can't believe how fast the month of October is flying away with the falling leaves. It's already the 15th  and time for the lucky winner to be announced.

Thanks to all those who participated in this giveaway and joined my followers. I look forward to your return visit.

As promised I asked my husband George to pick the winning name but first I had to have him do a job for me. He installed some hooks and framing wire on a large mirror I bought for over the mantle and he used a cement screw on the brick to hold the mirror secure,  so it wasn't a job for me. It took about half an hour to get the job done from start to finish and tomorrow I'll clean the mirror and will take a picture of it. He hung it a wee bit higher than I wanted but I can adjust the wire maybe later.

The little basket was shaken vigorously and not stirred... and my husband looked the other way and put his hand in... like he was supposed to, lol...

Now I wish everyone was a winner but we are all grown up and I know that you understand that there can only be one and the lucky winner is ..... Orange Sink.

Congratulations to Cathy G from Orange Sink. Just email me with your mailing address Cathy so that I can mail this little gift to you as soon as possible. m.julia.bourque@gmail.com.       JB


  1. Oh I am so glad you picked a winner, congrats to Orange Sink!! I like your story about your mirror, I can't wait to see it. Yes, most of the time I am like Anne, but there are times I am a lot like Annie Oakley. :)Injustice always gets my dander up.
    I can't wear high heels anymore either, but I sure would try it if I could wear some of those red heels she had on. They were the prettiest shoes I ever saw.
