Toot-Toot, We Have a Winner

Thank you so much, bloggies, for all the kind comments in honor of
my first blog year! And it was also nice to "meet" some of you who
are regular readers, but don't normally leave comments. Today I
will spend some time tidying up the manor, and the hundreds of tea
cups from all your wonderful visits. Thanks for celebrating with me!
I had pre-selected the number 43 (witnessed by WT) for the drawing.
Taaaa-daaaa!! We have a winner! Reya Mellicker left the 43rd
comment yesterday! Reya, I will send you a well loved book or two
from my personal library. If you haven't been over to Reya's
The Gold Puppy, go pay her a little visit. She is a fellow "Blog of Note"
and her thought provoking, intelligent blog is one of my daily reads.
So, hey hey, there you have it, my bloggy friends. Best wishes for a
lovely weekend, all. Willow x

    Have a good weekend, Willow. We're off to a Warhol exhibit tomorrow (my V-day gift) and La Traviata on Sunday! (I only brag about this because normally my weekends are sooo uneventful!)

  27. Willow I love you blog anyway...I try to read it almost every day but its a challenge sometimes just for me to post every day, I strive for once a week at least. You are such an inspiration to me to keep improving on my blog, and I love the interesting tidbits you add to yours, don't know how you do it. Keep up the great writing.
