Winners!!! Giveaways: Comin’ Up Roses

In the Feb/Mar issue of MaryJanesFarm, “Comin’ Up Roses,” I led you here to my daily journal for a chance to win some special giveaways. Following, you’ll find the winners of all five giveaways.

The winner of my “Milk Cow Kitchen, Comin’ Up Roses” giveaway is Barbara Johnson, who left this comment in response to “Tell me about the farmgirl you would gift it to who either has a milk cow or dreams of having one.” (397 comments!)

“I hate to say this, but, I’d give it to … me. 🙂 I’m a grandma of 5 and I always wanted a milking cow … preferably a miniature one. That would be a perfect size for me to handle and for the grandkids to learn all about cows. The book would help me to convince my husband. I’d leave it in places where he would find it at random times: in the refrigerator, near the remote, on the passenger seat of our car, and of course, the bathroom. Who knows? … if I do that, maybe he’ll think getting a milking cow would be his idea! One can wish, can’t one?”

——

The winner of my “Revomax, Comin’ Up Roses” giveaway is Honey, who left this comment in response to “Tell me one thing you do to conserve water.” (330 comments!)

“I have a raised-bed garden with drip irrigation, purchased an HE washer, only run dishwasher when it’s full, wash only large loads of clothes, and turn the water off when brushing our teeth. These items would be so great to win—my job is as an itinerant braillist, so I travel from school to school in our rural area to assist students. A good-quality water vessel like Revomax would be essential to my day.”

——
The winner of my “BabyLit, Comin’ Up Roses” giveaway is Terri Hopler, who left this comment in response to “Share with us the title of the book you’re currently reading.” (239 comments!)

A Homemade Life [Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table] by Molly Wizenberg.”

——
The winner of my “Cookie Cutters, Comin’ Up Roses” giveaway is Joyce Steeley, who left this comment in response to “Tell me what your most loved dessert.” (629 comments!)

“Love your magazine. Can’t wait for it to come. A fresh cup of coffee, a slice of pecan pie (my absolute fave), and the latest edition of your magazine. What could be better?”

——
The winner of my “Love Pillows, Comin’ Up Roses” giveaway is Cheri Hanschu, who left this comment in response to “Share with us the last place you drew a heart. Was it at the end of a letter, a post-it in your child’s lunchbox, a love note you left your sweetie? Tell us WHERE!” (109 comments!)

“I just sent a letter to my daughter … I always write her name followed with an exclamation heart!”
