Our Winner!

Hitting 60 subscribers was a highlight of my week. As one sweet reader reminded me there are lots of people who read your blog and never comment. I do know of several ladies who would fall into that category and I appreciate all of you Silent Readers!!  I do not write my blog to make money or to be an internet sensation. I just want to meet like minded ladies( so far as I can tell no fellas read my blog)  and share the lives we live.  I have so many blog friends who I am sure I would feel right at home with if we met up! Sandy is a case in point. When we first planned to meet, Sandy shared with me that her mama was a bit concerned that Sandy was meeting someone she only know via the Net.  And yes, I would not meet up with just anyone on the internet but I have shared my life with y'all for many years now. So if you ever come to the NoAla area or the NoGA area, please let me know. I would love to meet you in person.

I used a random number generator to pick the winner of the Cracker Barrel Give Away and the winner is MRS. T.   Here is what you will be receiving in the mail Blog Friend.

A new Christmas dish towel, a Christmas ornament, Peppermint tea candles and a set of two magnetic note pads. You can keep one and gift one!!  I hope you enjoy your Cracker Barrel Christmas package.

I have done lots of my gift shopping at Cracker Barrel. They have such unique things and who doesn't love Cracker Barrel. My new blog friend, Phoebe of Phoebe's World, is new to our country and she did not know what a Cracker Barrel was so she had to google it!! Now she is looking for one! It is addictive friends.

Thanks again for each sweet comment, for your encouraging blog posts that have touched my heart over the years. I appreciate each and every one of you!!

I love Cracker Barrel. We live almost across the street from one. It is hard not to go over there for dinner! And I just love to look around and see all the new things they have. So much fun!

Congratulations to the winner of your giveaway! You have put together a fabulous gift of goodies. I don't get to Cracker Barrel often; the nearest one is about 75-80 minutes away. Enjoy your week!

RJ said...

Congratulations Mrs. T...what a really great surprise gift. I really like Cracker Barrel alot too. We don't go as much as we should but your posts have made me want to make sure I get there soon.

You found so many great things this year Arlene. Cardinals are my weakness so I must get over there to see all they have.

Like Mary said earlier starting the blog for us this year has been such great fun because we have met wonderful people like you and other stitchers who all share our love for cross stitch and crafts in general. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

Congratulations to Mrs T and thanks to you for doing this.
I know what you mean about blog friends. I know if we met in person we would feel like old friends. When I met my first blog friend several people thought I was crazy to meet with someone I only knew from the internet. I knew it was ok then!
