And the winner is......

Earlier in the week I posted about a giveaway for bloggers that were already followers of Lavender Cottage.  Without advertising my giveaway on other blogs or more than one post on my own, you could say it was a sneaky way of finding out if people that add themselves as a follower do actually follow and revisit a blog.
I can honestly say now that becoming a follower appears to be a way to bookmark a blog you like for some, but not necessarily one that is visited on a regular basis.  Interesting thing I never thought about until my giveaway, and I do the same thing. 
And, then there was a blogger upset that people were removing their names from her blog as followers - great conversation on that one and it made me wonder how much importance is put on that number on the side.  Something to thing about on this glorious Sunday morning with the sun shining and not a cloud in the sky.

As promised, Glenn drew a name out of a container and the winner is Beth who has two blogs - 'Food as Art' and 'Beyond the Garden Gate'. 
Beth, please email me your mailing address so I can get this package off to you.  Congratulations.
Thank you to all the other ladies who submitted their names, my life has become more enriched from your kind comments, friendship and sharing.  To me, all of you are winners, and jablog too who left a comment anyway but didn't qualify because she lives across the big pond.


  1. Your blog is lovely and I visit with or with-out entering contests. You had me hooked from the first time because of your expertise with flowers and the beautiful photos you post. I'm glad to have found you.
    Oh, a friend just sent me some NIGELLA seeds from her garden in VA. I'm in Colorado. Any suggestions on how to plant them, keep them safe over the winter, and away from the deer next year? Would a terra cotta pot work?

  2. Congratulations to the lucky winner!!!

  3. Good Morning Sweetie...
    Congratulations to Beth. She will be so happy with this lovely give away.

    I can't wait to pop over and see what beauties you have to share next. What a joy it is to have found you.

    Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

  4. You gave away an amazing gift package Judith. Someone is going to very happy. Congratulations again.

  5. Congratulations to the winner. I'm sure she will enjoy receiving the package.

  6. Hmm you have got me thinking Judith about my blogging habits.
    I came to blogging because of a Magazine called "Artful Blogging". I am an artist of sorts and when I saw what a wonderful way blogging was to connect with other artists and see how they handled things that a mystery to me, I was hooked.
    But then I started spending my free time checking out the blogs they followed and the blogs those guys followed ...etc.
    First I am attracted to the colors and style of the blog. Are they interested in what I am interested in? Sometimes you go to a blog and your heart gives a little jump, it's like a dream come true. Afterward when a blog I follow has a new post I will always come and read it. If I can relate to the post or it touches my heart I leave a comment.
    There are days when I don't get around to every post because I just can't spend hours online each day, but I try to catch at least a couple of posts each week from each blog I follow....
    Tina xo P.S. love your blog :)

  7. Congratulations to Beth for winning your lovely givaway!
    It is raining cats and dogs here today but no wind so the garden is enjoying it.

    Take care,
