The Winner for my giveaway is...


The winner for my giveaway is Kathy from Shocking Pink Thread.

I printed out the comments from the last three posts, and then my daughter and I cut them up and put them into a basket. I picked Kathy's comment out of the basket and ta dah! There were 76 comments in all.

Vermont Winter Sky

Kathy lives in Vermont and well, I just can't think about sleigh rides in the snow without thinking about Vermont, so I chose this song to celebrate. Yes that is Kathy in the sleigh loading up some lovely dolls that she made for a fair (tee hee).


Although I have never met Kathy, when I visit her lovely blog we mention places we love in Vermont.

Kathy, just e-mail me your choice from my shop and your address, and your package will be in the mail in a jiffy.

I am going to have another give away on my post for the day of the Christmas Fair, November 21st.

I hope you have a lovely day, here are some photos I took last winter in Vermont. Such a cozy place to be at Christmas.

The song for this post is Sleigh Ride, sung by Amy Grant.

Oh, and if you feel like getting all glittery and crafty make sure you visit Joli-paquet and learn how to make another wonderful's free!

Congrats to Cathy! What romantic photo's. I think Vermont is like Austria or Switzerland in Europe, of course lacking the lovely Cathy in her sleigh, I love that 'photo'! Have a nice week!


Good morning, Karen

Congratulations to the winner!
Vermont seems to be a wonderful place.
