Pink Saturday & 100th Post/Cottage Charm Giveaway Winner

Happy Pink Saturday! Well, for this week I decided to share soe cupcakes I have found while browsing flickr.com Today is such a gorgeous day, a day perfect for a pretty pink cupcake. Have a wonderful day and treat yourself to a cuppy! Which one is your favorite? I like the the one wich chocolate icing! pink hugs, Ellen






On to the GIVEAWAY!!!! I just want to thank everyone who participated. I wish I had run it all month long because I enjoyed going into my email and reading all your stories! This was such a tough one for me because you all had great stuff to share! Some were funny. Others were heartfelt. And some were gutsy to share. So because I wish I could give something to everyone, I decided to pick one winner and 3runner ups. Those 3 will get a lil' surprise somethin'. Okay. Drumroll !!!!!!!

The winner of my 100th Post/Country Charm Giveaway is......Marilyn in NM. Your story was so creative and it gave me goosebumps when your father realized that it was a cougar stalking you! Plus Daddy's should ALWAYS listen to their little girls! :) Congratulations!

The 3 Runner Ups are .......1. Susan Pilatto for having the spitfire to take it upon herself to not surrender her macaroni and cheese to "wee" black bear. Congrats!

..........2. LeBizB for keeping her sons dream alive and your backseat animals! That story would make a wonderfully comical children's book. I can invision it now!

..........3. Deanna for her heartfelt kind and generous spirit. How wonderful that you continue to go back to give needful things to those who truly need! Made me choke up! I work with those type of people and they do really suffer!

So now, I need the winner and the 3 runner ups to send me their full addresses. My snail mail is sweetmemorymakingmom@live.com And Marilyn you will also need to tell me which of the four pin cushions you would like me to make for you along with the color combinations!

Thank you again. Stop back periodically. I had so much fun with this one that I might have to do another random giveaway. Start getting those stories ready.

hugs, Ellen

I missed this week's posting due to illness, but glad I'm here to see it now. What spiffy cupcakes! This phenomenon is just taking root in the UK, so it's great to be ahead in the Decorating Ideas Stakes, lol. Happy Pink Saturday!
