Your comments – all 123 of them (wowza!) – made my day. I loved to see how many people also had a penchant for teacups (I think I know what my next giveaway will be…) and shared many memories of vintage telephone desks like the little gem I picked up.
I turned to Random.org to help me pick a winner for my teacup giveaway, and (s)he said it was number 113.
Comment #113, and the prize, belongs to Allison at A Little Shabby Always Chic. After reading her comment:
I would love to win this giveaway! I need a new teacup after one of mine broke in an earthquake. I would be so excited if I won! Stop by anytime!
...and then seeing her post from Friday, I am sure that she was meant to be my winner. Congratulations, Allison!
Then, there were the two “Y” monogram spoons I had to give away.
Many comments cracked me up…I love the “attempted Ys” – like NancY from Live, Love, Laugh who capitalized the Y for emphasis (ha!), Spencer at Bellamere Cottage who was willing to change her name to “Yipppeee,” and my absolute favorite from Elizabeth at at Bluebirds and Bubbles:
One of my loved one's name does indeed start with Y...his name, Your Highness, Bentley Highfalutin. :) It's my sweet Cavalier Pup!
But did the real Ys come forward?
Desiree from Lookiloos has a sister whose last name is York -- and her 40th birthday is in July. Fabulous! But then there was also Tammy from the Yarborough House of 1929 (how could I not love an old house with a name?!). And Hedy King whose student is Yoselin (beautiful name, and beautiful gesture by the teacher!), as well as a Young pair: Laura at Décor to Adore whose very best friend is a Young, and Karen Young over at Journey to Authenticity.
What’s a girl with only two Y spoons to do?
Well, guess what: The thrifty sale gods have smiled on me and all five are getting a vintage “Y” monogrammed something-something in the mail. Y for yay! (Hedy King, if you’re reading this I don’t have any contact information for you – please let me know a way to reach you and I’ll get your mailing address.)
I’ll post the round-up of what we bought and what we saw, but here’s a little teaser…
