A Winner*******

My give-a-way comes to a close; I loved each and every comment!   My grandparents did illuminate my life;
No not every memory is a gift, but most were.  I did get in trouble a few times, when they were in charge. I was their first grandchild; They lived at the end of our street.   I respected and loved them, no matter what.   Memories do fade, like star dust, but the impression left on my heart, will forever gleam.   So, the lucky winner:
is Sherry of  Sherry Blue Sky.   Please email me and I will provide you with your gift certificate.  CSN stores
has  many choices; I hope you find something just for you.  I did notice they carry pet items, as well. 

My daughter and I were stunned, I didn't realize you had the word Star in your blog.  She is the one that picked your name out of the hat.  I always thought of you as Sherry Blue Sky.  Congrats~

Stay the course, light a star,

Change the world where'er you are.

Memories are such an incredible thing. It is wonderful to look back on them with a sweet kind of smile. And the best part is creating the memories. :)

Congrats to Sherry! Does anyone have the love heaped on them like a first grandchild?It's pretty sweet that they lived on your street, too!
Ellie said…
Will-You are so right ;-D We lived in the middle; they lived on the end.

Lisa-I have missed you; I know you are busy; can't wait for you to get a new computer! Take Care...

Lori-Hello, I will be by for some inspiration soup...you always are stirring up something good!

Stephen-Thank you; It is nice to know you have a soft spot for them in your heart!

Lisa-I'm okay, been run down lately. Think my iron might be low. Going to start taking supplements and build up my energy. How are you? When does school start?

Jules-Glad things are looking up for your Dad!
This is an exhausting time, but I truly believe he will recover and be better than before! My thought n' prayers go to you and your Dad~

Jennifer-Yes, the best part is making them! You know how to just say it! I hope you are better; I will stop by soon~

Wanda-Thanks for all your input, it meant a lot!

Julie-Hope you are doing well! This is my daughter's. A few years ago for Christmas this was what she wanted. It doesn't get as much use as we like. We are trying to change that...It is awkward and big; She needs big brother or Dad's help. Fun though~

Lynnette-Thank you; Yes, Sherry is very deserving! I will be by soon to visit you; your photos are fun to view~

CissB-Thanks for stopping by; I enjoyed your last post! I totally get your love!

Sherry-Yes, it must of been all those references to the midnight blue sky! ;-D

Alex-Hello, I still am muddled over making a list of favs...it is difficult ;-D

Yvonne-Thank you; I look forward to reading more
inspiration and delight, from you~
