AND THE WINNER IS!!!!!!



Every Body Keep Blogging  Till The Cows Come Home!
   Last week was my 100th  Post on my blog, My Old Historic House. To celebrate, I had a give away and today, I am here to announce the winners. First, I would like to thank all of you that came by for a visit, are a follower, became a follower and left such wonderful comments. My friend Blossom and I picked the three winners. It was not an easy choice as I had a lot of neat and great bloggers to close from. But there could only be three.If you  are a winner, please email me ASAP, with an address,  so I can get your wonderful prize in the US Mail to you. I hope you all enjoy the prizes.
   I usually have lots and lots to say, probably too much. Today I will let the pictures do the talking. I could not help myself, but to do a revisit  to my screen porch. I did a post about it way back in early spring and I thought that now that summer is winding down, you allllll just might like one more look. It has been way to hot to use this porch this summer. It is really just now the season for it. Today in Missouri it was 60 when I got up and last night about 75. So guess who had dinner and breakfast on the porch? Friend Green tomatoes for breakfast with sweet tea!!! Such a bad diet, but, such good food. OH boy, was it good. I wish you all were here to see the porch in person and enjoy the breeze. Come for a visit anytime. I will leave the lights on and Sissy Dog will always meet you with a jump and a big Kiss.
 
WINNER OF THE FRENCH CALENDER:
SHELIA from  THE NOTE SONG BLOG.
Shelia won my heart and the prize when she said the calender was sweet and so was she.
Ms. Shelia, please email me your address so I can send you the "sweet" calender.
FRENCH TIN CALENDER, PRIZE # 1.


WINNER OF THE SATIN LACE AND FEATHER PILLOW IS !
VANNA   from  The DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR BLOG!
Vanna won my heart when she not only said it would look beautiful in her bed room but did a complete blog about her bed room to show me. How can I turn down any woman who invites me into her bed room?
PRIZE #2. SATIN< LACE AND FEATHER PILLOW


WINNER OF THE SOUTHERN INSPIRED GUEST BOOK IS:
CHRISTINA from CHRISTINA'S HOME AND TRAVEL ADVENTURE BLOG.
Christina won my heart when she said she  would like to win the guest book  because she loves to have guest! And we all know she really does from all her beautiful post about her home, guests and great food. And  she loves in the SOUTH!


PRIZE 3. SOUTHERN INSPIRED GUEST BOOK FOR HOME AND BUSINESS.


WELL, I guess I have to blow my own  HORN. I made these words for this post. I used old Victorian inspired calenders. Cut out each little pic and glued them on one at a time to write this out. It never got a mention. I am sure no one even knew.





These are pages from old Victorian Inspired Calenders that I cut and glued to make the words, 100 BLOG POST.

debchester said...

Love your blue and white porch! The fabric on your wicker settee and chairs is so beautiful. Lucky you, getting a break in the weather so you can enjoy being outdoors.

I haven't dropped in on your blog for the last few posts, so I'm just now catching up. Those Victorian-picture cutouts are too cute. But the time it must have taken you to do them ... wow.

Lynn said...

Hi Richard, Congrats to the winners. I love this porch! I am slowly hoping backwards to see more pics of your home. I don't have a lot of time this weekend, so will be done in a matter of days or this week. Just wanted to stop and thank you for being my newest follower and for stopping to visit. We visited Hermann, MO about 5 years ago. Because my hubby is German, we wanted to see this lovely town on our way to WI from Arkansas. So trying to place the area of the Midwest your home is in. Blessings on your week.
