Aha!! I gottcha didn't I!!!
Since hardly anyone looks at the winner post. I thought I would slip it in on you!

 Our favorite lover of the swine in all of us.
Sweet Lynn  at Happier Than A Pig In Mud
is the winner of the CSN gift code
and my Giveaway!
I had to google to know how to spell that!

Use the link above to go over and congratulate her.
Take a look at her Mardi Gras Post.
What do you bet she buys a kitchen gadget?
I know she will. Lynn, we can't wait for you 
to demonstrate your newest gadget.

I am working very hard to get my bedroom finished by the end of March. A couple of days ago I showed you this.
My daughters don't know it but they are going to help me finish this, next week.
Now just a peek of something else!
This is not a headboard.
I think you will like this when it is finished. It is not a headboard. Did I repeat myself? I do that sometimes.
Stay tuned for the results.

The UPS man came by today bringing THIS, no THAT. Whatever!
The condition of this package was scary
Bob: "What's THAT?"
Me:   "A plate."
Bob:  " Please, don't tell me that's more dishes."
Me:    "OK, it's not dishes, it's a plate."
End of conversation.

Oh my, this looks bad. This is the third time I have purchased this item on Ebay. The first two arrived broken.
Oh,well, I have a pic. 

Success at last! I am one excited chick!

After previous experience, let's say I was anxious. I did, however, get a really good price on this one.
This lovely "Bordallo Green Cabbage" chip and dip will be showing up, soon, in a couple of tablescapes. I'll bet you can guess which ones.
Since this is a tabletop piece and I am so excited that it arrived in once piece I hope Marty won't mind me joining her party. Thanks Marty, I love you.

Well that's all the This and That for today!
I am linking to the following gracious hostesses:

WEll- I love a little of this and a little of seems that is what my life is like most of the time. Apparently, you haven't learned the most important rule of ordering something. You must HIDE it as quick as it comes in the door. You leave it in the closet for a week and then pull it out and go..Oh? What? This OLD thing? lol

Hmmmm...tablescape with a lettuce leaf? 4th of July? Christmas? No? Well, surprise me~

AND...a big Congrats to Happier Than A Pig In Mud...and I ALWAYS pop in to say Thank you and offer congratulations. Poooey on those that don't! xxoo Diana
