Meet a real winner: Colorado Lady!

It's been a jaw-dropping week for me. I decided at the last minute to whip up some tote bags with some totally silly fabric I had, and I put my name on the list for the massive Bloggy Giveaway Carnival.

I thought it would be thrilling if I got a lot of responses. By "a lot," I was thinking 40. That would be a lot.

I was, in a word, unprepared for the response I got.

But what I really was unprepared for was this; the random number generator picked a blogger I not only know, she's a blogger I visited today. I nearly fell out of my chair when it picked the winner.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Colorado Lady! I will be shipping off her tote bags but first let me tell you why you should go visit her fabulous site:

  1. She has the cutest dachshunds. Seriously. And I'm not a dog person.
  2. She has an idyllic cabin that looks like the setting of a good bodice-ripper novel (not that I would ever read any of that stuff much).
  3. If you watch her slideshow, you'll see some really cute guy in a cowboy hat. He might also make you think of a bodice-ripper novel, but I have the suspicion he belongs to said Colorado lady. Doesn't hurt to look though.
  4. She loves vintage things. The Christmas items she posted Thursday will make your head explode with memories.
  5. She's got a great recipe for Margarita punch. Because life's better when you have about a gallon of the stuff at a party.
So please go visit Colorado Lady today and enjoy her blog. Maybe she'll let you borrow a tote bag.

Oh, Thank you so much for the cute write-up about my blog. You have no idea how happy that made me, the cowboy in the hat is my son!! He will get a kick out of that.

I was super excited about winning the bag, and then I pulled your blog up to show my husband, and found your kind words. What a good day. Thanks again.

Congrats to Colorado Lady. At first I was sure you meant to say Oregon Lady with Seven Clown Circus. I was a bit disappointed when I realized you did mean who you said. just kidding.

I have been so busy lately, I haven't been following your blogs daily. I feel so disconnected! I will rectify that on our 10-hour drive on vacation this week.
