CIJ Tablescape Giveaway Winner Is...

I am sorry that this took me so long to get posted. I had an out of town meeting Sunday and planned to finish counting all the posts, shout outs, etc. and post a winner on Monday.

Many of you know that my husband lost his only brother earlier this month after a very short battle with lung cancer. Sunday, the BIL's wife Sharon's mother had a stroke and was hospitalized. She had lived with BIL and SIL for the past few years and was 94 1/2. She passed quietly in her sleep Monday morning. Although she was not in my immediate family, she had been a part of our family. This has been another very tough week with another funeral and my heart is just broken for my SIL. She has not even processed the loss of her husband and now lost her Mom.

Thank you for your patience. I haven't even had the energy to post all week.

The winner of the Christmas tablecloth is Shutterbugs!
Please send me your name and mailing address and I will get it on the way to you. I have all the other CIJ giveaways from this month packaged and ready to ship to all of you.

I also decided to have several more drawings. I did a pull out drawing from all the participants who linked up a holiday table and the winner is:
Marty at A Stroll Thru Life

Another from those participants taking part more than one week (several did this for 3 weeks!) The winner from that group is:
Marge at Christmas Traditions

The final was one more from the HUGE collection of names from all month. The winner of that one is:
Country Wings in Phoenix

Marty, Marge and Country Wings, you each will receive something for you to use on your holiday tables. Sorry, these are not tablecloths, but will be a surprise gift. So, please send me your names and mailing address to:

Thank you all for your support and participation all month.


  1. So sorry for all your losses, and so sorry for the devastation your sister-in-law has had to contend with. Your family will be in my prayers.

    On a lighter note, congratulations to the winners. So sweet of you to keep up with postings and drawings during such a difficult time.

    All the best,

  5. I am so sorry about your family's losses. Sending much sympathy your way.

    On another note, I congratulate your winners as this was a great giveaway. :-)

    And I'm sending you belated Happy Birthday wishes. Things got so hectic last week that I'm not sure if I got my wishes out there to you or not, so if I didn't, please know I'm sending them for the whole year. If I did, just know that I'm tired coming off a looooooong trip. LOL! My DH's brother and my sister's husband (now deceased) both share that special day with you!
