GIVEAWAY WINNER WHOOO HOOOOO SWEET CHEEKS DONE GOOD!

Yes, Yes, I KNOW.
It should not be 
SWEET CHEEKS DONE GOOD..
It should be..
SWEET CHEEKS DONE EXCELLENT...
ha-had you there, DIDn't I?

I met SweetCheeks after school in a 
PARKING LOT
so she could do this drawing.

I took the hat full of 
OVER 100 NAMES!
So..
Who (or is it whom) did she pick?
See for yourself!

Drumroll....please....
Unfolded and 
HERE IT IS!

Here is our little Gappy...
Smiling away.....
No way to cheat now that she can read!
Guess what?  I wouldn't cheat anyway
because I have discovered that
cheating does not pay!
It always comes back to bite you...or me...

Now she is old enough to read the names herself.
Wow!  How in the world did she get so BIG?
She's still little enough to like dressing up.
Here she is at Halloween.
Can you guess who she is?
It's Snow White, you goofball!
Sorry- got off track there for a minute.

You know- It is really funny how things work out.
Lisa, as many of you know, lost her husband, Ken,
a few weeks ago.
Life has not been easy for her and I don't think 
she has had much to smile about.
Maybe today- just for a moment-
she will smile.
Lisa has a blog, too, if you'd like to visit her.

Here is her entry:

to me
Lisa Mangold has left a new comment on your post "A SWEET LITTLE GIVEAWAY- FROM ME TO YOU": 

I tried this once this morning but I'll try it again. Looks like I'm not entered into your contest. Perhaps it will inspire me to see new dreams! 

Blessings, 
Lisa
Sometimes those small good things in life
pop up when you need them most.
I hope the magazine does inspire you to see
NEW DREAMS.

Lisa- Send me the mailing address where you
would like the magazine sent.
Lisa, I want to encourage you to
enjoy your day and celebrate by eating a
HAMBURGER.
HOWEVER, DON'T buy your BUNS
at Walmart....
UNLESS you are going to roll them
into a HOT DOG shape.

  1. Congrats to Lisa! I hope it does make her smile, even if it's just for a moment or two.

    That pic of Sweet Cheeks really shows how grown up she's become. There's a noticeable difference in her face now. It's bittersweet, isn't it?

    SC looks amazing as Snow White - looks just like her, and has her perfect hair!

  11. Congrats to Lisa! I hope she enjoys the magazine. And I think great value made a mistake. And - we have great value here - but they only have white hamburger and hot dog buns. No whole wheat. I wonder why?

  16. I normally get blog delivery to my email after dinner so I would have gone all day without knowing about the contest. Thank you to the "little birdie" that prompted me to read a little earlier today. YES it did make me smile! And although you (Diana) always make me feel like a winner - it made me feel like an extra special winner today! I can't wait to see the pictures and all the ways I can decorate my next home/cabin. As for the hamburger - I think I'll just take it without the bun. I hear they're not good for your BUNS!

  26. Congratulations to Lisa, and thank you, Diana for an exciting give away!
    Good old WalMart - now for those of us who aren't smiling because we didn't win, there's always a trip up and down the aisles of that fun house to make us laugh! Funny thing is that their hot dog buns are probably made for circular meats - always first with a trend over there they are! :)

  36. I'm sure this will brighten Lisa's day, congratulations to someone who is in need of a little kindness. Love Sweet Cheeks costume and her beootiful smile. I just found out I am going to have myself a little grandbaby, but I have to wait until next week to announce it because of my DIL's employer doesn't know yet :) I guess Walmart has invented the 'hotburger' bun. xo Karen

  37. Hugs and wishes for the sweetest of new dreams to Lisa.
    The Cottage Books are a great escape for a little stress release. I always surface with new ideas that replace the space where the stress once lived! I love SC! She knows how to pick 'em, if you know what I mean!
