Remember last month, when I wrote my 1500th post and announced a giveaway? Well, I finally got my act together and drew the name of a winner.
All the names of people who left comments on that post went into a basket.
I grabbed my able assistant Gordon just as he came home from a hard day's work in bail court...
To guarantee fairness, he looked away from the basket as he rummaged around and pulled out a name.
He's quite good at this. Maybe one day he'll be a real judge!
And the winner is....
Susan from My Mother's Apron Strings!
This is particularly fitting, because in October, I won a beautiful sunflower apron in Susan's blog giveaway. So now I get to return her kindness.
Susan has won two bars of my handmade soap...
...and a jar of my honey!
Now, that was my first batch of soap BUT I made it under the supervision of my soapmaking friend, and I have already tested out a bar, so rest assured, it shouldn't take off a layer of skin or cause large blisters or anything like that. :) One bar is peppermint, the other is orange.
All my years working as a packaging designer have come in handy at the farm. And we are this close to naming our farm "Amorous Duck Farm." I think I can guarantee that no other farm around here has that name. But I'll have to get the sign made so that it reads "AMOROUS DUCK farm", not Amorous DUCK FARM", if you catch my drift. We don't exist solely to breed amorous ducks. Although we do seem to breed rather a lot of them anyway... but technically, we aren't a duck farm. Yet. :)
If you haven't checked out Susan's blog, you should, because it's wonderful (and she's an incredible baker.)
Congrats, Susan. Can you email me your mailing address? I thought I had it somewhere but apparently not!
This was fun. I'll have to do more of these in the future! Thanks to everyone who entered.
