Hello, my friends! I have used random number generator to select a winner of the "London Treasures" giveaway, and I'm excited to announce that the winner is the amazing prairiegirl! I was stunned when her number came up on the generator. It just seemed so perfect. Pg was one of the people I met during my first year of blogging, and we have been friends ever since. In addition to being one of the most gifted photographers I know, she is also one of the kindest, funniest, and most supportive people I have ever met. I use the term "met" in a bloggy way, since we have yet to meet face-to-face, but I feel like I have always known her. I know that any of you who blog understand just what I am talking about. It will be a joy to think of Miss prairiegirl while I am making my rounds at the London markets (although I may have to let you down a wee bit, pg, since I'm going to have to eat all the fish and chips myself)!
And because I wish, wish, wish I could bring back gifties for everyone, here are five more folks to whom I'll be sending postcards upon my return from the UK: Jillayne, Marlowe, Oliag, Sunday, and Cathi. If your name is on the list, please send me an email (see Contact and Links) with your mailing address. I'll be pleased as punch to write you a pretty postcard.
Here is a big thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway, as well as to all those who sent sweet notes via email and Facebook. In most parts of life, three years isn't very long, but in the transitory world of blogging, three years seems almost a lifetime, and I feel a lucky magpie, indeed, to still be here, typing away.
