And the winner is...!

Good afternoon, blogging friends!

And yes, we have a winner! But before we get to that I have to thank everyone who took part, I really appreciate it that you visit my blog and comment so THANK YOU EACH AND EVERY ONE!

I asked my oldest daughter to draw the winner from my basket - she said it was definitely high time she got to pick a name as her brother and sister both had done it before her! (All said most indignantly as you can imagine!!!) So to insure domestic bliss and harmony, Caralyn did the honors!!!

And TAH DAH!!!!

The winner is Mary @ Neat & Tidy! Congratulations MARY! You have been such a lovely blogging friend to get to know over the past year and your handiwork is always a treat to see on your blog!

Mary left this sweet comment,

'There are so many things I love about summer, but I guess my favorite would be just being outside and enjoying the heat and fresh air! Happy summer to you. '

I agree wholeheartedly with you, Mary and I'm looking forward to some good weather and fresh air too and just being able to run around outside with the kids!

I also love summer flowers and blooms, tho' I hasten to add that I'm not the best gardener in the world but I love a bit of color in pots and planters.

And after a lovely day, it's great to relax and watch the sun set...

Thank you all again and I hope everyone enjoys the next couple of months and make the most of SUMMER!

Big hugs to you all!
