Behind My Red Door

And the winner is...

See the hundreds of entries in my really big bowl?

I put my hand in, closed my eyes, stirred the pot, pulled one slip of paper out and we have the winner of my first ever giveaway (but not my last!)

And that winner is....

Congratulations Stephanie!
I will be contacting you for your mailing address and
getting your prize in the mail tomorrow.
I hope you enjoy it and I'd love to see how you use everything!
This has really been a lot of fun and I truly thank everyone who participated.
Stay tuned for my next giveaway later this fall.

I'd like to include an addendum to my earlier post about my award and my honey and money.
My sweet friend Rondell, over at Tomatoe Creek Prims also honored me with special blog award pictured above. Thanks so much Rondell, you are a sweetheart and I am touched!
It was fun to hear from so many other gals and bloggers and online friends
who live on budgets. DH and I do so even though we are at a really good place in our lives.
I am so blessed to still stay a home even though the kids are grown.
Is there a term for stay at home mom of grown kids who moved out already? LOL
That's kind of long so instead I stole the term Keeper of the Home
from my friend Kathy. It's exactly what I do!
Several gals asked me for some of our money saving tricks and
while I am sure there are entire websites that do that, I'll be glad to
share some of the things we do Behind My Red Door and maybe more importantly,
what we DON'T DO, in a later post!

Until next time - hugs, Linda
