The Ethel Glove giveaway ended an half an hour ago, at midnight. While some people are sound asleep, dreaming of that Victorian-style hobby greenhouse (with cresting) magically appearing in the back yard at that hour, I'm wide awake, Tweeting to the peeps in my computer. Oh let me assure you I'll be dreaming of that greenhouse, too. Just later.
So the magic hour arrived, and Romie and I were sitting here preparing for the official drawing of the winner's name. I wrote all the entrants' names on pieces of paper, folded each of them once, and put them on Romie's lap. He was going in and out of consciousness (he's a morning person), but when I gave the signal, he reached into the pile of names and pulled one out.
We had an official witness to the drawing, who really wasn't all that enthusiastic either. Baby had gotten only 22 hours of sleep today and was fading fast, but she managed to make sure that the random picking of the winner was on the up-and-up.
So without further ado, the winner of a free pair of Ethel gloves is...
I can never remember whether it's Kim or Victoria that leaves the comments, but one of you now needs to e-mail me through my profile page with your shipping info, the style of glove you'd like, and the size. You can message me on Twitter (@OurLittleAcre), if you're into that.
Thanks to Ethel Gloves for sponsoring this giveaway and to all those who entered. Don't forget, you can still buy a pair (or two or three) of Ethels at a 10% discount and free shipping by using the code LITTLEACRE at checkout. This special code is good until April 24, 2009.
Congratulations, Kim and Victoria!
