And The Winner Is…

Florida Marilyn! Congrats!

Here’s the pretty fall bowl from my endless collection of pretty bowls which I’ll get to show off each month:And here are all the names in said bowl…

And here’s the winning entry:

A box of auction treasures will be winging its way to you just as soon as I get up the ambition to pack it all up and haul it to the post office. But isn’t anticipation a wonderful thing?

I know I said there would be a drawing every week, but with only 5 or 6 people actually entering the drawing, that seems pointless. And let’s face it: I’m not that energetic. So I figured once a month would be good, and would give more people time to enter, since it takes SO FRICKIN’ LONG TO SEND ME YOUR NAME.

Lordy, you people. This is good stuff! ¬†You need to enter to win. Do it now! Then you can be happy with all the stuff, just like Chris and Marilyn. You want that, don’t you?

I was going to write about my vacation, too, but that would mean I’d have to sort out pictures, so I’ll save that for another time. Meanwhile, here’s a picture of Pennsylvania Cathy being silly at Gordy’s Hi Hat. She does it very well. It’s one of the things I love about her.

Are you thinking, “Geez, they look alike?” I hope so. I love when people think that.

Well, congratulations again to Marilyn, and the rest of you should send me your name so you can be in the next Pretty Bowl drawing, which will be October 31st.

Spooky, eh?j

I Know What I Said, But …

Geez, I hate when people don’t do the things they say they will do, and now I’m turning into one of those.

I’m back from my little vacation, and had a wonderful time, but life has sort of been turned upside down this week, so I’ve not been updating. Or drawing names like I said I would, or packing auction leftovers that may end up on your doorstep.

So sorry!

Just a quick note to say I’ll be back soon with some interesting news, and some vacation pictures, and some auction pictures, and maybe even a recipe. At this moment there are about 1,000,000 things going on in my brain, and updating my blog hasn’t made the cut.

But it will. I promise.

Next drawing is this coming Friday, September 21. Send me your name and win fabulous junk! Why should I keep it all to myself?

Your chances of winning are good. Very, very good.

Let me know if you’re in. You might be in for some big surprises! (Or little ones, what with the cost of postage these days.)

Send your name before Friday afternoon: pjackson@pattjackson.com.

And good luck to you!

On Vacation

I’ve been on vacation the past week, and entertained (I hope) a wonderful house guest. I’ll update as soon as I can. Back to routine today…
