And the Winner is . . .


Dave was the Master of Ceremonies. He watched over me, like a hawk, to make sure I did this thing right since it was my first time and all.

I cut all the comments (25 of them), folded and put them in my candy jar.

I then shook it up really well, promise.


And I pulled out . . . drum roll please . . . becca-bluebird rose of A Nod to Nature! Yea! Congrats, Becca. So glad to meet you. What a nice way to make a new friend.

Hurry and send me your addy, Becca, so I can put this luscious box of chocolates in the mail to you!!

Thank you to everyone who left a comment. In the process, I met some new folks, including Becca. They call themselves lurkers. I prefer the name passers through. I do my share of passing through without commenting at times. I think lurking is not such a nice word, sounds too shady to me. They all seem too nice to have that title, I think. Glad to hear from you, at any rate.

Should I pull another name for some more chocolate?

UPDATE: Becca's box has been mailed. Yes, I will pick another name for another box so stay tuned! You know what? I'm going to pick two more names. I'm feeling generous. One will get a box of chocolates and the other will get a package of Galler's cocoa.

Dave is so talented to help you that way!
I like the name "passers" too, or looky-lous! I've used the term lurker but I agree, it sounds a bit shady.
Congratulations to Becca!!
((hugs))

Sorry, don't know why that went through twice!! (Could it be my excitement over winning chocolate? ;)

Giving away chocolate, and I didn't know about it !!! I always read posts like these a few days late. Oh well I'll just have to go to town and treat myself to a box of chocolates. (I'll make sure I'll hide them from the kids of course. Chocolate indulgence is best done in secret!!)
I like soft centres best, gooey ones, like coffee cream, or strawberry cream. However I hate the orange creams. I don't like praline either, or nuts. I do love dark chocolate though. Well that's enough about me .. lol..

PEA said...

Now Rosa...what kind of a question is that..."should I pull another name for some more chocolate?" YESSSSSSSSS of course you should!!!! lol

Congratulations to Becca for winning!! Woohoo! I'm sure she will be thinking of all of us as she bites into each one of those scrumptious, wonderful, yummy, chocolates...SIGH!! hehe

Hugs xoxo

dear rosa =^..^=

This was a delight. A chance at chocolate ... meeting new friends.

Dave, well ... what can I say? He's a gorgeous creature and I'm sure you keep him apprised of his handsomeness (my tabby girl Jennabelle is batting her eyelashes and getting all shy looking at his picture ::^..^::)

Lurking ... I prefer "visiting" ... As if you stopped by a neighbors that wasn't about, yet you found yourself compelled to walk along their garden's path -- the one with the Welcome sign to find them, but felt not to intrude further. Then were too shy to leave a note. Yes, visting with an intent to come back soon. With paper and pen to leave that note about how much you enjoy their garden.

(and so glad you got the fire out before the fireman could actually find it! YIKES)

I of course vote more chocolate. How about for the Spring Fling? (lisa ocean dreamer has the details) ... Ummmm yummers!

Now I must get back to supervising the creatures here at the cottage ... Tonight is a party!
=^..^= love, zU

Pam Aries said...

OKAY! Well ..here's MY address! Ha ha! Girllll.. how many boxes do you have? BTW: I agree with you on the 'lurkers" that sounds creepy. This Valentine giveaway has been delightful! I have met cool new friends!

Mrs. Staggs said...

Congratulations to Becca!
I love zUzU's thoughts on lurkers. She's so perfectly described the way I feel about it too.

Congratulations to the winners, I didn't see this until now sadly.
Aren't giveaways fun? Don't forget about the Spring Fling!
XOXXO
