Surprise! And a winner!

 

Happy Halloween everybody!!!!!!!

Is this fun or what????   I have to thank Karen Valentine, she did a wonderful job with this and I am more than happy with it!  It makes me smile and that is always a good thing! 

I also picked a winner for my 1st Anniversary…there were 51 posts and so I put the numbers  1 to 51 into the Random number generator and the winner is

#29 !!!!!!  Paula Clare!!!!!!!! 

I tried to get a copy of the generator but it wouldn’t let me do it!

I had planned on getting something on my vacation for the winner and I just didn’t see anything that was unique….

On my way back from California I stopped at a Cracker Barrel and saw this wonderful cookbook!  It is written by I believe,  a niece of the owner of Cracker Barrel….it is full of vintage recipes and tips and the cookbook is so cute!  It is a good read besides being a great cookbook! Pages and Pages of fun!    And of course, what is Halloween without candy?????  Paula, I know you will love this! By the way, here is a photo of my finished “caramel apples” too!  Have yet, to put ribbon on them! :)

Sandy,
I couldn't see what Karen Valentine did and then...WoW...it all came up on my screen! That is fantastic! I am anxious to look and see what else you have done recently, too! I will take a look after I write this.

We are in Croatia for our exchange student son's wedding. It is a thrill to be here. My husband and I spent a week in Prague before. Incredible sights. There are lots of pictures on our blog if you would like to take a peek!

Hugs,
Suz
