Pearls and Lace Thursday Pearls Giveaway Winner!

Howdy to you all!!
I have a winner picked!!
But you'll have to wait to find out.  That's 'cause I'm mean.
Yep, just plain mean.  And selfish because I want you see what I've been working on.
So.  Remember the collage I wanted to make for my friend 'L'??
Here is the start of it.

I have it all pinned, and yet there are still a LOT of items I haven't put on it yet.  You know I can't stop with it until there are buttons and pearls and roses!!  The picture below is my work area.  I'm supposed to be getting my craft room ready for Where Bloggers Create!!!

OK.  I need to stop first and tell y'all something I've decided.  I have been so late getting to everybody who has joined my party this last month or so that I've decided to take a break from hosting the Pearls and Lace Thursday party for a while.  Probably for most of the summer.  I will think about getting back to hosting the party after the heat of summer is over.  Now don't think I'll be absent from blogland, because I love to take pictures and have fun showing y'all what I've been doing.  AND there's the Where Bloggers Create party coming up in July and I want to participate in that again this year.
So until further notice, there will no longer be a Pearls and Lace Thursday party.  I must say that you all make it fun to host, and you all share such lovely things!!  I appreciate your comments and joining me so much.  I just need to take a break.
Hoping you understand!!

NOW, how about that winner! 
I had a TON of glass pearls that I found on sale a few weeks ago and wanted to share, so of the people who commented on my last post, here is the winner.
Drumroll please.......

Cynthia, would you please get me your address so I can send you a package of pearls???
I will try to email you and let you know...

Big hugs and blessings to you all!!

Doni, your collage is absolutely beautiful! Your friend L is going to LOVE it!!!!!!!! You have such an amazing eye for lace. I love the beautiful crochet pieces on the bottom. You are so talented and you are also an inspiration. I will miss your Thursday Linky Party but I so understand. Living in Texas and enduring the heat of our summers, I try to make life as simple as possible. Get myself some iced tea and stay inside with the AC. Plus you have your craft room to work on. Can't wait to see what you have done with it. Can yo believe I do not have a craft room, one day (I hope, I hope). Stay cool and healthy and I will be often. Hugs, Beverly

Oh my....everything is soooo beautiful again this week. Thanks for the lovely eye candy treat!
I understand the need for a break. I took a short one for about 10 days....I wrote a few posts....but didn't do much else and it felt good.
Enjoy your time off and be richly blessed. [hugs]

Doni I am simply drooling as you know that I will be at this collage !!!! It is Stunning !!!!!!
I am proud of you for sharing your lace so beautifully. Your friend is going to absolutely adore it.
As for your party, I am sure that everybody will completely understand, Blogging can sometimes be so time consuming that little else gets done. I will look forward to Pearls and Lace again sometime but really everybody just comes because we love to see your beautiful lace and pearls. Your kind soul and bubbly personality means more than any lil party honey. I am just happy to be here and in touch with youxo
