Time to Crown the Winner...and a Special Announcement

I'm sure you've been anxiously awaiting this day–for the announcement of the winner of my fun giveaway.

Many of you were even willing to do whatever neccessary to earn those extra entries.  As a matter of fact, there were 381 entries total.

WOW!!!  You blogging buddies sure kept me busy.

Thanks to everyone who participated and for all the sweet comments on my posts.


it's time to crown the lovely winner (selected by random number generator).

And, the winner is...

Congratulations, CC!!!  I know you're gonna just love all those vintage goodies.

I had not planned for a runner-up for this giveaway, but there's a lady out there who deserves a prize for all her persistant participation in this event.

Not only did she do everything possible to earn lots of entries, she had the highest number of entries!

Lynn, your persistence paid off!  I just couldn't let you put forth all that effort without reward.  Sooo...I'll be sending you a little box of goodies as well.  ; )

And now for a super special announcement.

I've decided to bite the bullet and do something I've wanted to do since I started this blog–host a weekly event (actually several weekly events).

I know, I know.  I never seem to take tiny steps.  Did I ever tell you I'm a type A personality?  LOL

Beginning Tuesday, June 1st, I will be hosting the first Tips and Tricks Tuesday linky party here at the Brambleberry Cottage. 

Over the years, the Yankee and I have discovered a few things that make our projects come together a little easier.  I bet you have a few tricks up your sleeves, as well. 

This event will be a time for us to share with all of you and for you to link up to share your tips and tricks throughout the blogosphere.

Then, on Thursday, June 3rd, I'll begin hosting Time Travel Thursday.

This will be an opportunity to share all those creative endeavors where you've given an old, perhaps outdated item a modern twist. 

Or, maybe you've gone in the other direction and taken a project back in time–say an 80s kitchen that's been given a retro 50s update backdate.

Finally, starting Monday, June 7th, during Ask the Yankee, you'll be given the stage to ask theYankee your most challenging DIY questions.  The following week we'll come back to share the how-tos.

I'll be posting the specifics for each event very soon. 
So stay tuned!

OK, now I'm off to get some rest.  I have a feeling that in a very short while, there won't be any time for that!  ; )
