Christmas Giveaway Winner...

And the winner is...Marydon from The Blushing Rose!
Congratulations, Marydon. I have your address, my friend, but let me know if you'd like a set of goodies in the coffee motif I used in the photos, or if you'd like me to surprise you with something made with you in mind. I'm happy either way.

If you didn't win, don't feel bad. I'll be doing more giveaways very soon! Thank you to all who left such gracious comments. I love you all.
Huge apologies for not posting the drawing results overnight as I usually do, but a late afternoon visit from the "Sciatic Nerve Fairy" kept me out of my blogging chair yesterday. I'll be close friends with my Aleve today and yes, I am feeling much better, thanks. So instead of spending a lot of time sitting here, I'll leave you with an image of the always-fabulous and tasty White Chocolate Cheesecake, made by our dear friend, Richard, as our dessert yesterday. This is his own recipe, which he refines every time he makes it. (This was also the best version yesterday!) He also made the beautiful and perfect accompaniment of Raspberry Sauce as its festive topping. Thank you again, Richard for the best ending to a meal shared between old friends.
**Just so you don't think I made a mistake...Marcie from The Rustic Victorian added her thank you note last night, and our drawing was held yesterday morning. You're so welcome, Marcie...I'm so glad you like your gift from me.

Oh, Donna, please take care ... I know that sciatic nerve too well.

Merry Christmas celebration wishes I hope filled your home with joy & pleasure.

Donna, you may do whatever you desire for me ... I would be happy with anything from you. TYSM for asking tho ... I leave it to your decision.

The little box you did I have so many compliments on ... it sits in the middle of the Christmas tree to show off ... after Christmas it will become part of our table decor once again.

Hugs, sweet friend ~

PS That cheesecake is looking to-die-for!

Do you know that that sciatic nerve problem down my legs was a constant problem with my back all during my thirties. Then when I was 40, a sports doctor taught me stretching/yoga exercises. I do them twice per day, every day. Have for nearly 13 years. And I never have that problem! Hope you feel better soon.

Congratulations to Marydon, and Donna, please take care, my thoughts and prayers are with you. My mother suffers from severe back pain daily, it's no fun. I hate seeing people in pain. :-(

My best,
