Winner and a weekend recap (mid week).

I love announcing winners, it makes me really happy, but I also get kind of nervous when I generate the winning number. What's up with that?
Anyway, the winner of these gorgeous earrings is...
#31 Drollgirl
(who happens to be one of my favorite bloggers and was featured here).
A big THANK YOU to Ashley Akers for being so generous! You are one talented lady and I wish the very best for you.
Now to the part of the post that has nothing to do with the giveaway (I'm getting creative with my seq ways huh?)
I mentioned that my twin (yes, we're fraternal and, no she does not like the camera) and my sweet niece were coming into town this past weekend. I thought I'd share some of the "candid" shots we took...
Bella got lots of attention as Anslei and her quickly became thick as thieves.
I seriously couldn't separate the two.
We played with Mr. Potato head which is every bit of fun as I remember it being (I might have to get my own).
B had fun too, even with a house full of girls.
Oh and this came in the mail today. In person, the peacocks are every bit as regal as I hoped they'd be...
These were worth every bit of the $12 I spent on them.
Well, that might be the most random post I've ever done but my head's a little scattered so you'll have to forgive me! Congrats Drollgirl!
{oh, and the awards are coming later,when I'm a bit more organized, I promise}

bananas. said...

awwww man! i missed a giveway. boo.

btw. the DIY lampshade...i actually didn't have a problem with the odd shape lampshade. i watched a helpful video. i think i posted the link. basically you trace the shape of the lamp by rolling it over a large piece of paper. kinda hard to explain but i can send you the video link. i think your lampshade turned out awesome though.
