Transferware Shop Pics and a WINNER

 We have a winner! 

A few pics from around the shop....the Giveaway is for a $100 gift certificate to my Etsy shop

This was my very first giveaway and to be honest...I really had no idea what to expect.   You all overwhelmed me.  I want to thank each and every one of you that signed up for the giveaway by posting comments.  There were over 300 comments left!!!!  So many of you left the sweetest, most complimentary all made my whole week! Thank you, thank you!

One comment in particular really stood out to me and really took me aback.  I was overwhelmed to read the following left by one of my transferware customers, a sweetheart named Connie.

Connie said...

Ode To Nancy

Your transferware is lovely there
Upon your marble table.
I'd snap it up in one fell swoop
If monetarily able!

The polychromes, the reds and pinks
With blues and whites appearing
Your English transferware to me
Is totally endearing!

We thank you, Nancy, for your style
And love of transferware.
We all may oohh and aahh delight
And each your passion share!

Enjoyed your sweet, lovely blog and photos!
Thank you, Dear!

How awesome is that?  I could not believe someone wrote such a sweet poem for me.  Connie, this was completely amazing and so very thoughtful and kind of you.  What a poetical sense you have and have shared with us.  I love poetry and I attempt to write it, so this just totaly blew me away!  I'm truly touched!  Thank you! 

Without further adieu the winner of the $100 gift certificate to my Etsy shop, English Transferware is:

 Congratulations Kathryn!
I was looking at that blue divided Midwinter dish today and thought it may very well have a new home soon!   Contact me through the email and let me know what you'd like and your address so I can ship your selections out to you!  How exciting!
