Guessing Game Winner(s)!!!

I know, I know ~ this was supposed to be announced Tuesday! First of all, I got my days mixed up. I thought Tuesday was Monday and I had another day to go. Then when I realized it was already Tuesday, I mentioned that I would draw names Wednesday. Wednesday arrived and I was so busy working on orders and running errands (or was that Tuesday, too?), I forgot until later, and was going to draw them Thursday. Thursday morning I got a call from a family member who needed to make an unexpected trip out of town to the doctor and she asked me to take her. There were complications from a previous surgery and the doctor wanted her to come in and let him see how things were looking. That turned out ok, thank goodness, but that was another day gone.
While I was running errands (Tues. or Wed.), I stopped at a little junk shop next to the post office and found this lovely old ironstone pitcher! It's not my largest ironstone pitcher find, but is a good size at 7 inches high. I love the aged look, all the crazing under the glaze, the soft color, even the crack and chip. Doesn't bother me a bit! And guess what it cost...... TWO DOLLARS!!! I was so happy to find it!

Now let's get to the giveaway...

This morning I printed all the names, and wrote extra names for those of you who mentioned the giveaway or my etsy shop on your blogs. Cut them up, folded them, and put them all in the pitcher.

I had my daughter, Jessica, draw the winner before she left for work this morning.

Drum roll please.........................

Patty of Magpie's Nest! Patty will receive a packet of my Heart in Hand Valentine cards AND another surprise because she also guessed the correct cost of my antique sofa ~ only $35! Patty, I'll be emailing you in a little while to get your mailing info.

There were 2 more guesses that were right on the money too! These came from Cathy of Hazelruthe's and Lori of Get To Goal. Cathy and Lori ~ I'll be emailing you later today for you addresses and will post later about your prizes.
Thanks for playing along. I enjoyed hearing from all of you and will be around to visit everyone's blogs by the weekend.
And I want to say thank you to etsy seller BraytonDsg including my Vintage Ivory French Paper Wreath in their treasury! Isn't the whole collection dreamy? I got home from grocery shopping a little while ago and had an email from this etsy member letting me know about the treasury. I am honored and wanted to share with you. When you have time, browse through the treasuries ~ I love how the curators choose themes and titles for the treasuries.
