And the Winner is……

While at our birthday luncheon yesterday, I had my Mom draw the winning entry for the CSN $50 gift certificate.

By the way, in case you didn’t catch it when I mentioned it in yesterday’s post,  it was  Mom's  birthday too! 

She’s 78, now halfway through her first year of retirement and learning to love it. 

Happy Birthday Mom :)

So now back to our drawing…

Congratulations Amanda!  I will send your e-mail address to Jessica from CSN stores.  She will contact you with the promo code for ordering.  Be sure to come back and let me know what you decide on!

Thank you to every one of you who entered the drawing, either on purpose (after it was announced) or inadvertently (by making a comment on any post since my blog began). 

I treasure each and every one of the comments I receive from you. 

And a big thank-you to one and all for your Happy Birthday wishes.  It was the best birthday I ever had. 

50 really is pretty nifty!

{and just look at what I managed to find at the curb on my way back to work from our lunch.  I took a wrong turn and while trying to find my way I spied this at the side of the road!  Sometimes getting a little lost is a good thing…. }004 003

Gotta go now, it’s trash day somewhere!



  1. Hi Rose, so glad you had a great birthday. Congrats to Amanda on her big win.

    Wow that was worth getting lost for... love the legs on that baby. Can't wait to see what you are going to do with those beauties.

    Have a great day.

    Hugs, Deb

  4. How'd I miss your bday post??? Well Happy belated Bday to you and your mom!!!

    Congrats to the winner!!

    And once again, you are my hero!! I'm going to go out of my way to get lost from now on!! ;)

  5. Happy Birthday!!

    I love the table - especially with the thingamabob in the middle of the support!!

    Love the picture of your Mom digging in the bag!

  6. Rose,
    by wrong turn you mean there were no curbs? or it wasn't trash day on that street?

    Come on now, there are no wrong turns for you...really.

    cool looking table. love the legs.

  7. Love the table and chair. The base looks like it has many possibilities. Wrong turn eh? Sounds like it was a right turn to me. LOL

  8. Rose,
    Thanks for leaving a comment, I skimmed your blog and plan to read all of it in the coming weeks. I chuckled when you curb shopped you own curb:) I have an upright freezer sitting out front of my house waiting for a new owner any ideas on how to repurpose this, just kidding. It still functions but is to large for us now that the kiddies are leaving the nest. Happy picking.


  9. Hooray!!! Thank you so much! I can't believe I won!!! (!!)

    You are the best! I wish you the happiest of birthdays!

    I can't wait to go shopping! :)


Thanks for stopping by. I love to hear from you!
