Totally Blown Away and A Winner

Thursday, October 1, 2009




For those of you that read my regular blog...you know JACK... this is Jack with the Swine Flu. Not a pretty site and not a Happy Camper.....He just jumped from the stomach virus to the flu, please pray for my little man...I am so ready for him to be WELL.
I just looked at all the comments and followers
that this blog has received in September....
Totally blown away....I launched this blog on August 25th, so just over a month ago and never dreamed that so many people would be interested. It was just on a whim that I decided to do it...in hopes that I could offer a little advice to my new friends. I hope I HAVE and I CAN!....there will be lots more new stuff coming.....
I am in Dallas for market tomorrow, so will be picking up lots of new ornaments ...and plan to make some pictures in showrooms of some unusual trees. So look for a fun post coming this weekend.
BUT TONIGHT is the night to ANNOUNCE the WINNER of the OCTOBER 1st GIVEAWAY, drawn from all comments left in September.....THAT WOULD BE 416 COMMENTS. Again, BLOWN AWAY..... So my official prize drawer, Parker, who takes his job VERY serious, picked a number and the WINNER is
SOUTHERN FRIED DREAMS
In the next couple of weeks a holiday box will arrive at your door....so send me your name, address, etc....and beginning today....all comments will go in a drawing for the month of OCTOBER....another holiday goodie box.....

In my head I had a picture of what swine flu would look like. It wasn't too far off. It looks miserable, just like Jack. Thanks again for all of the Christmas advice and I look forward to much more.

First, I'm sorry to hear your little man has been sick - poor little guy! I hope he's MUCH BETTER now. ☺

Now, as for your style.. I LOVE IT! It's fun and funky. ;) I know this probably sounds weird, but it's for those reasons that I started doing the grave pieces for Brent. (I really don't even like to say that because I KNOW that my baby is in HEAVEN.. AMEN?) Anyway, I don't like plain looking stuff.. I like them decorated with the same things and style that I'd put on my dining room table. (Again, Brent's not there.. I want "life celebration pieces")

I think this blog is GREAT! I'm so glad to have found it. ☺
