I've Got Yer Winners Right Here!!!!

OMG--check out my Dad, GJB Fan Club members!  Photo was taken this past Saturday at my niece (his granddaughter) Corinne's abfab marriage to the amazing Anthony.  Dad's totally got it GOIN' ON, what with the perky bow tie, ever-present American flag pin, and red rose boutonniere--not to mention that sly little wink.  Probably has something to do with the fact that he'd just returned FROM THE DANCE FLOOR, where he kicked up quite a storm frolicking hither and yon in his wheelchair with a comely lass half his age. 
I just noticed that, after jumping up to 202 followers, I'm back down to 200.  I thought I'd better announce the winners of the 200 Followers Giveaway before the number dipped BELOW 200 and the whole contest's raison d'etre would be sort of, well, stupid.

So without further ado, here's how it went down--one pile for vase wanters:

One pile for ashtray wanters: 

And the winners are: 

Vintage Coconut and Corinna, please email me (email address is over there on the right) with your actual name and address and I'll scoot your goodies right on out.

Miz Amber Von Felts and Miz Barbara both indicated they lusted after the pink piggy salt & peppers, so I wrote their names down, closed my eyes, and stabbed down with a pen.  This was not done to indicate anything violent against either one of them, of course.  Miz Amber was on the receiving end, so she gets the pink piggys, etc.  However, in an effort to help Miz Barbara out of the dumps she occasionally finds herself in, she's getting a consolation prize:
(See Babs, pigs DO fly and you DID win something!)

I will be sharing our adventures from recent festivities during Mardi Gras in New Orleans tomorrow (or whenever).  And then I need to get back to some good old-fashioned sharing of the vintage. 

Hope y'all had a wunnerful St. Paddy's Day!!!!!


  1. Yippee for the winners! Love Love Love that photo of George! That is why I'm a charter member of his fan club!!

  2. My follower numbers fluctuate too... I think it has more to do with people deleting blogs and profiles than people actually 'unfollowing' you, in fact, they make it quite hard to 'unfollow' someone (as I discovered when some silly comment I made on another blog was taken far too seriously, and someone grandly and purposely 'unfollowed' me, so I returned the favor).

    Wow, so happy to see Dad is doing so well!!

    Congrats to all the winners!!!

  3. I love you so much!!!

    My follower numbers haven't changed in a while. I'm getting sad about that.

    George is a doll!

  4. Aw your dad looks GREAT! I'm guessing his health has returned. I'm SO STOKED about the piggies! No matter how hard I try, I am drawn to S&P shakers. I cannot believe I won em! Thanks for magically picking my name....and Barbara, you scored with the lil' flying piggy too! Christine, you are the bestest!

  5. Your dad looks wonderful! I'm proud to be a charter member.
    My numbers fluctuate too. I figure my weight does too, so it can't be that big of a always goes right back up.

  6. Your dad looks wonderful! Glad to know he is doing better. And congrats to those lucky St. Paddy's Day Weiners!!


  7. Your Dad is a RIOT!!

    Can't wait to hear about your Mardi Gras adventures! That is enough of a consolation prize for me 8~), but Ms. Corinna hadn't even better think about putting a cigarette anywhere near that ashtray!!!!!! (I don't care if she smokes whatever she wants, just not near that piece of Brastoff!!)

  8. Received a card from your dad yesterday. What a surprise.

  9. Well this SURELY brought a big smile to my face this morning!
    I thought that looked like my name on that paper.. I EVEN SQUINTED to make sure!! But I didn't want to get all excited only to find out I was wrong so I made sure to read the computer tex and My goodness I read right!! haha
    Thank you Christine.
    I will send you my info right away.

  10. My numbers fluctuate all the time, I assume it is because people think I gave up on my blog when I don't post more than once a month... oh well! Glad to see all the items are going to good homes!

  11. I just saw this today! I'm super excited, thank you Miss Christine!!!

    svelteSTUFF: Do not worry, I don't smoke anymore! I will take good care of it, I promise!

  12. Congrats to the winners!
    Your Dad looks great Christine! What a trooper.

  13. I love your poppa, Miss C. Your posts about him make me smile.

    I tried e-mailing you weeks ago, but either I miffed ya or the e-mail didn't go through. Either way, many apologies and just want you to know that as ever, I enjoy reading you and your vintage life. I miss you, did I mention that? Anyway, I'd love to hear from you if you get a chance...
