Look at all those names in there!  Dozens and dozens and DOZENS of names!   Oh, and did you notice the hat?  It’s my new favorite.


Isn’t it cute?  It kind of looks like a tea cozy in this picture, but it looks better on, trust me.  Wish I could say that I was the one who knit it, but I have to give credit to the good folks at SmartWool this time around. I’ve worn their fabulous socks for years, but only recently discovered their delicious hats.

I’m dragging this out to torture you, can you tell?

 OK, down to business, time to choose a name…

Picking a name

And the winner is …



The quote she chose as her theme for 2014 is:  “I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.”  — Martha Washington

Great quote, Samantha!  I’m putting that one in my “keeper” file.  In fact, I’m putting ALL the quotes that ALL of you shared in my “keeper” file.  They were just wonderfully inspiring.

Congratulations, Samantha!  I’ll be contacting you directly for mailing information for your prize — a complete set of the Mother-Daughter Book Club series, autographed, of course!
