Giveaway Winners!!

I decided this morning to make the drawing of the winners more fun (and certainly prettier) than using
So, I wrote everyone's name (for those who also posted on Facebook or their blog, I wrote the name out twice) on pretty paper, cut them all to the same size, folded them up and put them in one of my favorite little bowls.
And then I drew four names in order of what I was giving away - and here are the happy results (all of them will travel far away from Georgia)!


The painting is traveling all the way to Germany to Sabine. Her beautiful blog is Liese and if you visit (click here), you'll see that she loves the color red. How fitting that this painting is going to live with her. You'll love her photos, all the things she makes and if you translate the blog (or speak German), you'll love her writing!!


The little poppy clutch is going to go live with Char in Canada. I've been following Char's blog, We Blog Artists, from the very beginning of my blogging life. Char is incredibly creative, making anything from fine art to whimsical crafts. Both of my nephews have one of her beautiful Once Upon a Time watercolor illustrations. Click here to visit her blog.

3 & 4. 
And Beth and Georgina both win one of my loopy, funky flower pins that I can't seem to stop making!
Beth and I have been great friends for a long time now - in fact, it feels like we've always known each other. She lives in Maine and her blog, Beth's Take on Life,  reflects her love for that part of the country. Her photos are just gorgeous and her writings wonderful. Go visit (click here)!!
Georgina lives in El Paso and is larger than life! Her writings on her blog, La Llorona Arts, often make me laugh, always make me think and for some reason always make me homesick for New Mexico. And her art is fun and happy! Right now, she is making wonderful colorful skeleton masks (after all Dia de los Muertos) is not far away (can you tell I miss New Mexico?).

I wish I had had something to give to everyone who entered, but I'll have another giveaway soon. For today I want to congratulate the winners and hope you are happy with what I'll send you. I'll be in touch with you via e-mail to get your mailing addresses.

Wishing you a wonderful Saturday!!


  1. Oh, Silke! I've been admiring your new flowery pins & am so delighted to be receiving one! Plus, you helped brighten up my weekend. (Lots of stress last night; more later on that.) Anyway, I'm so glad to be able to own one of your newest creations! Thanks for your generous giveaway.

  2. YAY!!! Thank you, Silke...can't wait!! Congrats to the other winners!! Oh, even though I live on the very far west tip of Texas, I'm a New Mexican at heart. Sometimes I wish they would annex El Paso since we have more to do with the state of NM than TX!! LOL

    Again, thank you, dear lady. Have a great weekend...hope it's cooled down a bit for you as it has here.


  3. WOO HOO...WOO HOO...I am thrilled to have won the Poppy purse...I LOVE it!
    Thank you Silke.

  4. Congrats to the winners. I did not win anything but consider myself a winner just getting to visit your blog. Silke you left me my first comment and I consider you my first bog world friend thank you. Lorrie

  5. Congrats to all the winners! Whoohoo! And it all looks so beautiful!

  6. Congrats to your super lucky winners, Silke! I know they will love their beautiful gifts from you!
