Foodie Friday Winners Announced Plus a New Give-Away

I love giving gifts.
It's the funnest thing in the world. I must have inherited this from my mother, who turned 81 today--and she spent the morning buying food gifts for Bandwidth.
So before I announce the winners for the Foodie Friday Anniversary give-way, let me introduce another door prize:

A 20-piece set of Treble Clef flatware. It ends on Foodie Friday, March 26th, and the winner will be announced on Tuesday, March 30th. You can leave a message here if you'd like to enter and mention the words TREBLE CLEF.
You can increase your chances of winning by posting your foodie photographs to the Foodie Gallery and by commenting on any daily Gollum post and mentioning the words TREBLE CLEF. Just make sure you leave a post here, too.
*******
Now it's time to announce the winners of Foodie Friday's 1st anniversary give-aways:
Rhonda at Shellbelle's Tiki Hut has won the polka dot dessert plates.


We have 4 winners for the Irish coffee mugs:
Kathleen
at Cuisine Kathleen
Patti at Bramasole Home
Rettabug at The Gazebo House
Nancy at Live, Love, Laugh

Justine at Stupid Is As Sister Does has won the Gollum dishes.



Mary at One Perfect Bite is the winner of Skin MD Natural face & hand shielding lotion. The company was nice enough to offer a sample as a door prize. I've been using a sample, and it's great for cooks.

Winners, please email me ASAP, including your addresses.

Congratulations!

The give-aways will continue all year. The drawing for the 12" copper pot will end on Foodie Friday, March 5th (winner to be announced Tuesday, March 9th).

You can sign up here for the Treble Clef flatware drawing (ends on Foodie Friday, March 26th) with the winner announced March 30th) and be sure to mention the words Treble Clef.

Good luck--and happy cooking!

  11. Oooooh HAPPY DAY!!! I'm beyond thrilled for Justine. I adore her!!
    I know she'll be putting those gorgeous dishes to good use. Maybe she''ll be inspired to divulge some of her great recipes on Foodie Friday.
    Congratulations to all the winners!

    I would like to post pictures in the Design Gallery. Are there any preferences to what you want posted?
    I will check my spam folder for your newsletter. Maybe that will explain it's absence.

    Happy Birthday to your mom. I hope she has a wonderful celebration of her 81 years! I think that's so sweet of her getting gifts for her grandson on her B-day...isn't that like a grandmother.

    If it's not to much "treble" clef, I'd love to be added.

    I hope you enjoyed my Foodie Friday anniversary post. It came from my heart.

    Sweet wishes,
    Sara

  77. You are such a generous lady! BTW I loved your book Mermaids in the Basement!

    So sign me up already for the flatware! 'Although I played piano for a long time, I began to concentrate on the flute exclusively, and I can now only read the Treble Clef!' How's that for use in a sentence? It's also true.

  80. WOW !!!! The pixies and me LOVE the treble Clef because it looks like a fern frond in Pink Pixie Forest!!

    ReplyDelete
  81. TREBLE CLEF: A symbol located at the beginning of a staff to indicate the pitches of the notes placed on the lines and spaces of the staff. The treble clef is also called the "G clef" because the symbol at the beginning of the staff (a stylized letter "G") encircles the second line of the staff, indicating that that line is the g1 (or g above middle C).

    Please enter me for the drawing. Your website is amazing!

    ReplyDelete
