Hooray! We have surprising contest results!

The contest for an autographed hardcover copy of Oolong Dead by Laura Childs is now closed. Who said # 13 isn't lucky? When I ran the number of entries (91 in total) through, 13 came up first and that is .... ta da . . .CAITE.

But, do not despair, there's more. If you remember I did say there would be a surprise. Laura sent me an e-mail half way through the contest saying she would be giving not one but 2, yep, two, count 'em 2 copies of her book. Wow, talk about generous ! So I decided that the second copy would go to the person who went above and beyond the required answers and gave extra special details with their answer. I'm talking about those imaginative entries that included choclate dipped strawberries, scones with clotted cream, cucumber sandwiches, lemon squares and pretty descriptions of hats and gloves. There were several of these entries so I just wrote their names on a piece of paper and let hubby draw one and that lucky person is . . .


So, Caite and Molly, if you would e mail me your address, I will send it on to Laura. A big thank you to all the entrants.
