And the award goes to...I mean the winner of my giveaway is....

Hello all!   Thanks for patiently's been a beautiful sunny day in Ohio, and it's great to see snow finally start melting, AND being able to enjoy a little outside time was awesome!!!

Really, it IS melting....

Tonight is the Academy Awards and lots of big stars are looking forward to a night of glamour and being recognized for accomplishments in their craft...  But more importantly (well, to the winner anyway...), the winner of my first anniversary giveway is being announced too.  I appreciate everyone who participated by stopping by for a visit, all the great comments, becoming a new follower, mentioning my blog, etc...  You're all the best, and this is the main reason blogging is so much fun!  I've tried to visit your blogs too, and have found some sweet new places to hang out!

I've been trying to decide what the lucky winner will receive...and,

of course there will be a little clock-related something in the box...

and a little something that I made...using a few buttons...

and some random junk (because everyone can always use a little random junk, right?)... (no picture...that's a surpise!!)

and a little something courtesy of my friends at Gorilla Glue
(no toolbox is complete without it)

I think that'll keep the lucky winner busy for a little bit.  

Anyway, without further I'm rolling out the red carpet (well...actually it's an old rag rug, but very cool), and digging deep into my cute vintage hat full of names...

No peeking.........

There's a hush in the crowd, and as the camera is panning throughout the roomful of lovely bloggers...the anticipation is growing...the name is drawn (courtesy of "accounting firm" Dewey, Junque & Howe (sorry, I had to say that - it makes it sound so Academy Award-ish), and I'd like to finally announce that Susie of vintagesusie & wings is the winner of this year's - first annual Sylvia's Vintage Daughter anniversary giveaway. 

And the applause is ovewhelming...  And, as Susie comes to the stage to accept her prize (Susie - you can email me your mailing address), you can see the envy in the eyes of her peers - but, everyone is cheering her on (bloggers are such a supportive group), and the one consolation is...there's always next year!!!  (Oh, heck - I'll do another giveaway before then - I just love sharing my junk!!)

Congratulations Susie!  I know you'll LOVE the goodies I'll be sending...  And in closing...I'm hearing the shouts of "speech"..."speech" ring throughout cyberspace... :)

Please visit Susie's blog vintagesusie&wings...  I stopped by and just loved it - here's a post she wrote on some fabric brooches she makes (with instructions) - Fabulous Vintage Fabric Flower Brooches - they're just vintagey divine!!!

Again, thanks for joining in on my anniversary fun - I've loved sharing it with all my blog friends!

Hugs, Kathy

P.S.  Be sure to stop back soon - I'll have more details on the Art & Architecture, JUNKMARKET Style event being held from May 6th through 9th (in Minneapolis, MN) - Candy, Terri and I will be going (Ohio junkers will be represented), as well as many of the other contributors and some very special guests.  There will of course be SHOPPING, as well as other special events such as a charitable kick-off gala (May 5th), classes, a Mother's Day brunch by Cupcake, a fashion show by Anthropologie...and more...(to be announced).  My friend, Sue Whitney, is taking junk to a whole new collaboration with Art & Architecture - it's a match made in junk heaven!
