So sorry I didn't get here to post the giveaway winner yesterday as promised. Packing, traveling, setting up camp, dinner, minature golf, go-carting (yes, and seeing me get out of that thing wasn't a pretty picture) campfire stories and me falling face first into bed....Hope you will forgive me.

Before Mr. SS  put on his Avila Beach golf hat this morning and left for the golf course, we put in about 49 slips of paper and he drew

Marcia of BlessedMom's Simple Home.
Congratulations, Marcia!!

All of you should pop over and visit Marcia. Hers is one of the first blogs I followed. She's a Mom with 6 kids and has a really sweet blog.

Remember, I said there were a few things inside the tote.

Two of my favorite magazines

A really wonderful smelling bar of soap ( but the box with the Eifel Tower is what got me),a magnetic "to do" list notepad, a vintage hankie, a sparklely brooch (not vintage, but pretty), three shabby roses that came from Strawberry Patches. (I plan on showing you some ways to use those later. Or go here and see what Suzanne has done and order some now.

And my personal favorite, this little key holder that just hooks over the side of your purse so you can always find your keys

Thanks for all your comments and support. I love visiting all of you, made so many new friends, renewed an old friendship, learned so much, gotten to see places and things I would never have otherwise, been inspired by all of you,
and just in general had fun.  I am looking forward to the next 100 and my head spins, always looking at things from a "post" viewpoint.

Now, I'm off to fix breakfast and head for Avila Beach to wiggle my toes in the sand and get those same toes wet, playing in the water with 9 of the best grandkids a "Mamaw" could have.

Madi, if you read this....Mamaw misses you!!
