Pearls and Lace Thursday #27 and Giveaway Winner!

Who Won?  Who Won?  Who Won?
The Chickadees are asking the question, Who Won?
Well, that will have to be answered after we have our Pearls and Lace Thursday!!
(unless you cheat and skip it!!)

This last month's shopping at sales and fleas seems to me to be a Bonanza of Yellow Roses and yellow trims!!  From thread to brooches, to figurines to pictures and jars, everything seems to be yellow and with roses!  The picture below is my very favorite find.  Yellow Roses!  And of course since I was born, raised, lived here in Texas and will hopefully die in Texas, the Yellow Rose is PERFECT for me!

The sweet jar below is hand painted with of course, yellow roses!
Even the GLOVES were yellow!!!

Yellow roses painted on a small dresser tray and yellow vintage trims, even the brooches went along with the theme.  It's been a lovely few weeks of sales, but now the cold northern winds and rains have started and I'm afraid the garage sales will be put off for warmer weather.  What do y'all do for the winter if you can't go shopping sales???  I'm hoping to locate some indoor thrift stores around here!!

Well, here's what y'all were all waiting for....the winner of my 100th Post Giveaway.
So many of you left such precious comments, and some of you even joined me for Pearls and Lace Thursdays!! I've really enjoyed visiting each of your blogs (for those of you who have one), and getting to know you a bit better. For all of you to know, I visited every link of every sidebar, made sure that all were correct, and checked every comment for verification. I printed each comment out, each entry for Pearls and Lace Thursdays, and sidebars and posts. SO wonderful of each of you who participated!
Thanks to you all for making this an extremely fun Giveaway.

I printed out 8 columns of numbers, One for each entry.  Total entries after tallied were 165

Cut the 8 columns into strips intending to attach them as collars around 8 puppies necks, but my husband asked me to only let one of the babies be part of the giveaway choosing....too much room for accidents otherwise!!
So, let me introduce you to Spencer!

Spencer, would you please pick ONE of the plates with a strip of paper on it?? 
He looked and sniffed, then looked some more.

And finally, after deciding between these two plates,

chose THIS one!!

Great job Spencer!  Thanks for your help, and thanks for not having an accident while we got these pictures!
OK, now for step 2 of the Giveaway choosing.

I got all of my entries numbered already, so now my strip of paper with the numbers to be chosen need to be cut up so they can go into my Coffee Pot!

each was folded and put in the pot.

Can you believe that the first time I poured, only ONE piece of paper actually came out into the cup!?

Drumroll please!

Number 77 matched up with Tracy Suzanne from Cotton Pickin Cute!  Congratulations Tracy!
(I've already contacted her via email and received a sweet email back from her!)
Please give Tracy a visit at her blog here

Thank you all for joining me for my Giveaway!  I look forward to doing this again soon!!
Now, don't forget to join me for Pearls and Lace Thursday!!!  Link up your POST below with the Linky tool.
May you each be blessed!

As I have supported my doula clients, some through pregnancy and birth and others with new baby care these last few days I find I do not have the time to chat with each of you individually and thank you for commenting or participating in our Tuesday meme. Please know how much we appreciate and anticipate your contributions each week.

Look forward to joining you around the tea table this week.

Blessings, Pam
