Congratulations to the Winners !!!!!

Thank you to everyone who entered. This has just been so much fun. I love to give gifts, it always thrills me to hopefully find something that someone would like. We had a wonderful response to my 100th Post and Pay It Forward Giveaway. When I added your names twice and three times for entering, following and posting, we had 190 entries. Wow, thank you. I really hope you enjoy your gifts. Ok, on to the winners.

The winner of the placemats, napkins and tray is Karen @ Mom,Me And Alzheimers.

The following three winners are for the Pay It Forward gifts. The rules here are that you are to do a post that you are having a Pay It Forward giveaway and then choose three people to give a gift to, and they in turn must do the same. I love the idea of Paying It Forward and I hope you will have as much fun as I've had.

The winner of the 4 Fruit plates is Rettabug @ The Gazebo House.

The winner of the 4 Friendly Village plates is Lynette @ Lynette's L.A.M..

The winner of the Lace Tablerunner and Shell napkin rings is Sandi @ Bearly Sane.

If you don't know these wonderful ladies and havn't visited their blogs, this is a fantastic way to get to know them. Please pay them a visit, you will enjoy all of them.

Thanks again to everyone for entering. I really appreciate your visits and how gracious you always are.

If the winners will please email me your addresses to I will get your gifts in the mail this coming week.

Hugs, Marty
