And the winners are....

Hi Everybody, it's another bright and sunny day here, and I woke up very early, but it is nice to be woken by sunshine and birdsong. After drinking enough coffee to get my eyes open, I wrote down all the names of those who left a comment on my blog, and followers got written down twice - which was nearly everybody. Then the names all came into a plastic bucket which had once held popcorn. Things are done in style around here! At least the bucket was clean. Then I persuaded my rather grumpy neighbour to pull out five names, which he rather grudgingly did. Okay, it was only 7.45 and he was still in his PJs, but heck, who wants to sleep too long when it's such great weather? Well, evidently he had wanted to sleep longer.... Oooooooops!
Anyway, the winners are:
Julie of Sesenarts in far away Australia - has won a set of tags
Alex of My Serendipity in Corfu - who has won a set of tags
Lynne of Adorn up in bonny Scotland has won a set of tags
Annabelle of The woods are lovely, dark and deep in Canada, who has won a mini book and
Vicki of The Cheerful Stamp pad in the USA - who has won a mini-book
Congrats Ladies! Nice to see that the winners are nicely spread out over different continents, which is a reminder that bloggers really are an international community, who *visit* and support each other.
I want to say a big thank you once again to ALL the people who have supported me in the past year, and that it is really great to find so many blogger buddies.

I have 5 mail art envelopes ready, one I showed 2 days back, and the others are here. Sorry for the very grotty photos this morning, I got up toooooo early!

As you can see, I need addresses to ship them!
Have great day you all, thanks for playing, thanks for visiting, and take care!

    Yes, it is Bonnie here today with the sun shining. I never realised what a community Blogging is and how we do become a little group. This is something which still surprises me as I never anticipated this when I started a Blog.
