Drumroll, Please

WoW! 273 total comments over three days on the Sew Mama Sew giveaway post. Thanks so very much to all of you who entered--I sincerely wish I could at least pop a card of buttons or a packet of ric-rac in the mail to each and every one who stopped by and left lovely comments...but alas, I can't. (BTW, a great big MWAH to all of my circle of commenters and followers who have been with me from the start--y'all are special!). I do plan to stop by all of your blogs and say hello. And thanks to those of you who became new followers!

It was so fun to read where you all are from, what era clothes you like best (1940s and 1950s seem to be the faves), good books to read, and the names of all of your pets: we had cats, rabbits, horses and chickens, turtles, dwarf African frogs. I loved all the rescued pet stories and all the great names you've given them.

Because the giveaway was of vintage stuff and because I live and breathe vintage, I decided not to use the Random Number Generator: instead, I wrote everyone's name on a piece of paper--dividing you into domestic and international visitors--and them put them into a vintage hat for two separate draws. The first draw was for domestic visitors...drumroll...Tallulah Mae helped (well, not really, but we can pretend)...
The winner of the flat rate box of goodies is Rachael, who lives in Minnesota. Yay!
The response from international visitors was A.MAZE.ING: 71 commenters from all over the globe (Australia, UK, Thailand, Singapore, Ireland, Canada, Norway, Finland, New Zealand, Dubai, Bulgaria, Turkey, Taiwan, Italy, Croatia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Portugal, Spain, Scotland, Israel, Germany, and Japan [I know Scotland and Ireland are in the UK, but I wanted to give them props!]). Wow!

The winner of an envelope o'vintage sewing goodies is Linda, from Nova Scotia.

Fun fun fun...thanks again for stopping by!
