A Winner and a Treasure secret!!

I want to start out by saying a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the giveaway!! I had fun reading everyones comments! I would also like to say Hello to all my new friends! I hope you enjoy your stay here at Treasures!

Now on to the giveaway....


It's comical after 100 posts and a year of blogging, I still can't manage to do a whole h*ll of a lot! So instead of spending some time locating that random site everyone uses to select their winners I decided to kick it old skool....


So I got out paper and pencil and Mr. Treasures and I went to work.

Like the mason jar I scored at the local Goodwill this weekend?

 

Some of you had up to four chances to win! YAY!!
We put you in the jar and shook you up...
but then I thought "That won't mix them up good enough will it?"
So Mr. Treasures removed his cap and....

dumped you in, stirred you around and then......



Picked the winner!!!

Congrats to Sandy M. from Seasoned Sister!!!!

Here's what Sandy said,

I became a Fan & a follower, & will link onto my blog (Seasoned-Sister); no doubt I would use the gift certificate on flowers... just found out last night that my sweet son wants to have his rehearsal dinner at our house, out in the back, so I need to have it looking really nice!

Maybe if we ask reeeally nicely, Sandy will send us photos of how it all comes together for the rehearsal dinner??

Alright, it's now time for the secret....

You see my friends, I have been hiding something from you.  It's just beyond this photo...


Brace yourself cause it's scary!! 
Infact, the only reason i'm sharing it with you now is because I
have HOPE!! 
 Thanks to this A-M-A-Z-I-N-G woman!!



Isn't she cute? It's The Frugal Designer!!! She and I have become fast friends!
I could do an entire post about what an amazing, talented and friendly person she is!
Instead I will tell you to RUN to her blog and follow along as she is gracious enough to spend her time and knowledge to transform this...


Dirt paradise into something gorgeous!!

I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!!!

WOW! I can't believe I won! Gonna start planning out those flower gardens right away! I'll be posting pictures of it for sure on my blog come August (Seasoned-Sister.blogspot.com). We are having so much fun helping with the planning of the wedding since it will be in Raleigh & they are both in VA. You can get a sneak peak at the couple on one of my blogs from last week.
I'm looking forward to your dirt paradise becoming something gorgeous, too! What fun!

The Frugal Designer said...
