Hello Everyone!  I'm a little late making my giveaway winner announcement because I've been without Internet service for the past couple of days.  Clear Wire is upgrading their system (yay!), but while they were in the process of doing that, all of their customers were without service.  It just now started to work for us.  It was terrible.... I felt like a little girl without her blanky (lol)!!

I want to thank everyone again for the warm welcome to Blogland you've shown me by leaving your uplifting and encouraging comments and becoming a follower.  I appreciate it so much, and it's been such a pleasure getting to know all of you!!  I only wish I had something to give each and every one of you.  :) 

OK...I won't keep you waiting any longer.

The winner of my 200 followers giveaway is.......Tina from Rubie's Place!

Congratulations, Tina!!  Please e-mail me your mailing information, and I will get these vintage goodies mailed to you right away.  I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I have. :)

My family and I are going to Reno on Thursday to visit my mom and her wonderful husband.  We always have such a wonderful time when we get together, so I'm really looking forward to it!  We'll be out of town until Tuesday, so I'll be away from Blogland until then.  I have to say, it's gonna be a little tough to be away for that long.  I've already been without the computer for two days.  Just when I get it back, it's taken away again for even longer (pouting).   We're taking the laptop with us, though, so I'll try to check in every once in a while to see what my fellow bloggers are up to. :)

Thanks again for all of your wonderful comments!  I appreciate them so much, and get such a kick out of reading all of them!!  I try to make an effort to visit all of you, but if for some reason I am unable to, it's simply because I've run out of time in the day (or my Internet service isn't working~lol!), not because I didn't want to. :)

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

'Til next time...

Hugs ~ Jo
