The Winner is....

 I know you are anxious to know the winner of the magazine.
Yaya email me with your snail mail info! I am so happy for her she is a long time follower and we are both hooked  on magazines.                                                                                                   
I recently found the missing box of Easter decorations. this is a fun vintage hungry bunny. The bunny heads bob up and down when the top is twirling.

Easter will be very special for us this year. Last year the night before Easter and my husband asked me to take him to the hospital which started the horror of all that he and we as a family have been through. I am so happy to say he is doing so well, we will enjoy Easter this year!
Wed I came home with an awful head cold. I have locked myself in the spare bedroom and prayed that Husband stayed healthy. So far so good and I am on the mend. I spent the day bleaching everything and working my way through the mountain of laundry.

Oh, my... I have just worked my way through washing everything under our roof because of our bad colds... and I absolutely LOVE Vintage Style! I have read and re-read it all week... I want someone to come in here and make our house look like those homes! :-) Oh, wait, that must be going to be me.

What a cute vintage Easter ornament.

Congratulations to Yaya on winning your magazine give away.

Sorry about you catching a bad head cold and having to exile yourself to a bedroom. I'm so glad that your husband is doing so well and that you'll be enjoying Easter this year.

Take care of yourself. Hope that you feel all better real soon. JB

Neat that Yaya won your magazine...I'll borrow it when she is done! That's a double win in my book...ha!
Sorry about your head cold and hope you are on the mend quickly. I'm sure every minute you look back to scary anniversaries like a year ago, give you a heart pang. Hopefully, it's all good news from here on! BTW the best thing you can do for colds is wash your (and David's) hands often. Good luck!!

YaHooooo!!! I love magazines as you know and I'm so excited to be a winner! Thanks so much! I'm so happy that this Easter will be a real celebration for your family. Easter is my favorite holiday. I love Christmas but Easter was always celebrated to the hills in my family. We celebrated Greek Easter and "regular" Easter so it was a couple of weeks of religious observation and great food...so I'm glad you can truly have a great start to Spring and to many healthy years ahead. Hope you feel better real soon and thanks again for the magazine. I'll email you!

Gosh, Cathy, I hope you are on the mend. Nothing like feeling crappy and having to bleach your way out! I'm so thrilled that David is doing better,though. You both have had quite the year. Here's to a new year of health, love, and happiness!
Feel better, my friend!
