The Prize!

I arrived home late Monday night and discovered this on my kitchen counter...



Overcome with excitement, I tore into it and discovered this...





This beautiful table runner was a gift from my friend Wilma over at Little Toes & Cheerios!! The card and the note enclosed were just as cool as the present! THANK YOU!


Wilma originally used the real names of her family members on her site. Unfortunately, she became the victim of some creepy lurker, and was forced to go the pseudonym route that many of us have chosen. I entered her contest to come up with bloggy names for the gang. I chose "The Flintstones" and I WON!!!!


You can't tell in the photo, but there are poinsettias stitched along the border of the runner. Ironically enough, I purchased one like this as a fall runner.....it has oak leaves stitched along the border. Great minds think alike, right Wilma??? Can't wait to use it!!


Be sure to go over and check out The Flintstone's new site. You'll leave with a smile on your face:)

What exactly do people do when they blog stalk? I use real names and real places. I just can't take the time to think up all that other stuff. I am creative, but I don't have the time. I am sorry someone bothered the Flinstones!

Congratulations! That's a great prize.

I want to know about this blog stalking thing too. I remain mostly anonymous except to friends and family (and anyone who goes through the Food Lion shopping line when my cousin is working).

Congrats on the win!!! That is SO awesome and what a lovely prize! I really love table runners as well and they are so nice when you can change them to match the seasons.

I will have to check out the Flintstones Blog sometime soon.

I miss you and I can not wait to be back full time.
