Before letting you know who the winner of the WYLS contest is
I want to take care of some thanks you's!!

First I won a great giveaway from Susan at ChuckleBees!
Susan makes and sells the best Homemade scented items
Just opening the box was a delight 
wonderful aromas filled my home
This is her Hips N Sticks in a wonderful
Cafe Biscotti Aroma
Not only does it smell wonderful it looks fabulous in a bowl
She included some very cute magnets (see the chicken) and
a coffee infused prim doll that I hung in my kitchen
I LOVE this cute felted pin cushion she made!
I can't say enough about how wonderful her products are
She has just released a new Aroma called
Amish Harvest and I will be ordering that for fall!
Thanks again Susan!
My Dear Sweet Friend Jodie sent me these adorable gifts
She said she was late for my Birthday but wanted to let me know she was thinking of me.  I love these gifts!
This wonderful handmade pillow hangs in my pink room
She also made me this fabulous pin 
And this very sweet note.  I appreciate the hand made items so much since this is not one of my talents!
Thank you so much Jodie I love love my gifts!
If you haven't visited her at Everything Vintage you should!

Hi Linda! What beautiful milk glass you have! My favorite is the chicken. My grandma had one of those...don't know who wound up getting it, but it wasn't me! I'm a follower and if I win, I'd like anything in the white milk glass, but especially a little chicken!! Thanks for the great contest! (oh, and BTW, one of my best friends attended that garage sale a few years ago. Becky Povich    Becky email me so we can discuss exactly what you want me to shop for! Who Knows? there might be WLYS giveaway when I return! Always, Linda
