My 70th Birthday Giveaway

Today, my 70th Birthday, has been a lovely day!  I heard from my children, siblings and friends and friends of my children I don't even know, along with a visit from my sweet friend, Kelley,  and Brenda, another Hall Monitor of the Universe.  Something she and I both share.  So, while I am another year was a happy day....bittersweet, but beautiful.   I will also have another birthday,  I guess you might say, as tomorrow I will spend the afternoon over at my daughter and son-in-law's house.  We will be making pizza and watching the Cowboy game.  Something a displaced Texan still likes to do.

As you see here....a reminder of the scarves and pin I am giving a reader of my blog.  As you recall, I like to give someone I don't know a gift on my birthday.  When I talked to my son in San Francisco this morning, I asked him to choose a number from the comments made on my Giveaway post, two posts back.  (A job the old navy man used to do for me.)  Scott gave me a number...and as it turns out, ERIN from Minnesota is the winner!  Maybe my scarf will help keep her warm this winter!  Erin, please send me your regular mailing address so I can ship your prize off to you....and I hope you enjoy it.

I think these photos are pretty good ones...taken on my iPhone.  I need to use it more often, it appears.
For those of you who didn't win...please know that I am grateful for your interest in my blog and I hope to offer a Giveaway again in the near future.  Thank all of you for acknowledging my return to blogland after an absence while I moved to a new home.  Your kind comments cheered me up considerably.

I'll post again as soon as I can and as always, I will appreciate your comments and emails.  Of course, you never know what I will be showing you and as it happens, I don't know what I'm doing until the minute I decide to post. 

  Y'all take care out there and until next time...take care!  ♥ pat

I'm sorry I'm late to wish you a wonderful birthday. I know this must be a bittersweet time for you.

Your scarf is so beautiful-- the color ways are gorgeous-- and the brooch is also lovely. I'm not entering your wonderful giveaway-- just sending you my love.
Love, love
