My Giveaway Winners

A couple of weeks ago, I had a little giveaway.  To refresh your memory, one of the things in my package of goodies was a lace charm, and the two winners could choose which one they wanted out of the selection, below:
Laurie, whose blog is Indulge Your Shelf, was the first place winner, and she chose charm #3, the white Venice lace.  She wrote the nicest post about the all the little gifts she received, and you can read about it HERE.  Laurie loves vintage textiles and buttons, and lots of other crafts, and takes such great photos.  She is a doll, and someday, I'm going to meet up with her at a workshop or an art retreat...I hope!

The second place winner was Tanya, whose blog is Bead and Needle. She chose charm #5, the vintage French Beading Lace.  She also wrote a sweet post about her win, HERE, and I have grown to LOVE that girl through many subsequent emails back and forth!  She blogs about travel, music, needlework projects, making jewelry, and also loves antique buttons, like Laurie.  Tanya also 'shared the love' and sent ME some wonderful treats, which I hope to post about later.  To quote Tanya, she ROCKS!!

Besides connecting with these two darling people, the 'Grow Your Blog' party was such a fun way to get to know lots more of you out there who are kindred spirits.  I am just so tickled to have met you, and even more honored that you've become followers of my little blog!

And now, a shameless plug: The remaining three lace charms are now listed in my Etsy shop, if any of you are interested:
Happy Presidents' Day!
