And the winner is...

We decided to do the drawing the old fashioned way!

So I had to get the "sheriff" to make sure things were legal...

Close your eyes!! Well, he can't read yet, so it really doesn't matter!

The winner of eight place settings of Mikasa "Brava Rooster" is Debby (Deb S.) from My Country Oven!! 

Please go by and visit Debby's new site. She posted a yummy looking recipe for "Overnight Coffee Cake."

I have to say a big thank you to Mikasa for sponsoring this incredible giveaway! I am so glad that many of you have been shopping Mikasa products, and I'm sure we'll be seeing those in some beautiful tablescapes soon. 

Also, thanks to all of you who came by here and entered!

Congratulations to Debby, and I cannot wait to see her table!! 



  1. I'll bet that Christian could get a gig conducting the drawings for everyone's give aways. He's a doll! Cherry Kay

Imagine Clearance at Dollar favorite section. lol Beautiful blog. Blessings to you and yours always.
