Winners of Both Giveaways!

Well, we laid those little dollies out in a little bitty line,

that went on...

and on....


They were pretty cold out there in the snow!

And, the snow was so powdery , that they wanted to sink down , down , down.
So, we had to be very careful while getting there little pittys all in a row.

Reagan gave the official measurements when we were done.

184 inches! That makes Theresa Swanson the winner!!!!
YAY Theresa !
Just a side note, Gail Thayer was just a couple off of winning again, and I think her daughter definatley needs to pick some lottery numbers :).

Jeffrey and Mason did not like this shot , they thought it was a little morbid. I liked the texture in it.

They are all toasty , dried off , and back in their jar now :).

We also must announce the winner of the blog follower drawing for the Candy Container Doll. For this one everyone was numbered, and then Mason chose a random number (because Reagan chose last time).

How long, in inches, would they all be together?
This is going hoot for Reagan to measure out. (hee hee)

egret this when there is a long train of doll appendages strung from one end of the house to the other).

Ok, so I promise that she will have it ready at the stroke of midnight Saturday when we see who the winner of this one is!!
And what is the giveaway?

Well, first off, we have a 4 pack of my "Joy and Love Angel" ,5x7" greeting cards reproduced from my original painting,with envelopes. And , a lovely matching muslin bag that has been trimmed out with vintage goodness.
