It's the Nomination That Really Counts......

Yes many of you were nominated to win my "Almost 300 Followers" giveaway, but sadly, there can only be one winner.

(drum roll please)

And the winner of the two-tiered server, Farm Chicks cookbook, and coordinating napkins is.....

(music swells here)

Oh I can hardly get the envelope open - er I mean random number generator to generate.......

(music REALLY swells dramatically here)

Let's see how much more I can drag this out.......



Oh you can't read that?  Well, let me get my trusty reading glasses out.  

The winner is......
Mica of The Child's Paper for her performance in Orange Brownies. 

Congratulations Mica!

Now for my acceptance speech.....

I want to thank you all from the bottom of my

for all the sweet comments

and 


just can't believe how many of you decided to follow

our adventures

here

at 

Sweet Bee Cottage.

Thank you again!

Your visits are such a delight - each and every one of you!



So....the question has been asked.....

(and it cracked me up because Worker Bee kept predicting I would have to have a 400 follower giveaway before the end of the 300 follower giveaway)

When is the 400 follower giveaway?

Well, I'll tell you - there will be one, but I have to find just the right delightful treat to give to you.

I know we'll enjoy many a latte as we continue our visits together!

Thank you again for buzzing 'round!

  2. Congratulations Mica! Way to go girl! And how strange about the Orange Brownies - I just got 2 recipes for them off the Food Network this weekend, one from Paula Deen and one from (eek, I think) Sandra Lee. I hope you'll share your recipe with us! Maybe even a photo of some on your lovely new server! Leslie Anne

  7. How fabulous! Congrats to Mica (envy) for being selected as the winner of your wonderful prize (jealousy)! No doubt, you didn't know what kind of new followers this would bring to your charming blog (rigged). I'm up for the 400 Giveaway (pick me..pick me).
    Seriously though...all kidding aside...I'm so happy that so many have found there way to your world and I'm very happy for Mica, too. I look forward to many more wonderful times to share in what's happening with the "Sweet Bee".

    I was screaming how cute your giveaway was and hubs came over to look and MADE me change from my pj's and go to Homegoods with him where we FILLED up the cart with these cute dishes. I was so excited - and I drink coffee out of the matching cups they had every day! It was fun to watch your giveaway! Hugs, Patti
