And the winner is ...

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!

Congratulations Kim and Victoria!

Kylee, your little slips of paper with the names on them are so much neater than mine were for the seed giveaway a few weeks ago! Maybe next time I'll try a scissors. :)

I got my Ethel gloves for Christmas and I've been using them every day now that it's gardening season in Ohio. I may have to buy another pair for myself and a pair for my mom for mother's day.

Thanks Kylee for this fun giveaway and introducing me to Ethel gloves. I did not win, but already have ordered a pair and am excited to try them out. They currently have a birthday special till April 8th where you can get 15% off. They are also extremely fast in responding to emailed questions (got a personal response in minutes!) I already LOVE their customer service! Can't wait for my new gloves to arrive!
Thanks again!

Congratulations to Kim and Victoria! I'm sure she/they will enjoy those new gloves in the garden.

Just saw all your photos of the first bumblebee--amazing! I've been in AZ this week visiting my daughter; this makes me wonder if the bees have come to my garden at home. They're a sure sign of spring!

Aww I didn't win! Congrats to the winners, though. I did end up ordering 2 pairs with your discount! They should be in any day now. Thanks!

Congrats Kim and Victoria!

Victoria Williams said...

Thanks so much! I'm so excited to receive these beautiful gloves and put them to use. They feel like an early birthday present - just one week early.
Thanks so much.

That was fun. I think. ;~)

I have a pair of those! They're great!

Okay, Kylee, I guess since you had an officiant standing by I'll accept that I didn't win fair and square. :-)
Congrats, Victoria.You are going to LOVE these gloves.

I went on the Ethel site to order more of these fabulous gloves tonight and they are offering a 15% discount to anyone because it is their birthday. So I took advantage of the Happy Birthday to Ethel offer and got two more pairs. BTW, I saw them for sale in Lowe's for 17.97 each last week. I didn't realize they were being sold in retail stores.
