We have a winner!

Good morning! Hope everyone's having a good Memorial Day weekend so far.

My husband and I finished painting our bedroom yesterday, changing the color from Valspar's Montpelier Olive to Benjamin Moore's Camouflage.  The Montpelier Olive turned out to be too dark for this space, but now it's fresh and lovely thanks to a couple coats of this light, grey-green neutral.

I also hit up an estate sale yesterday morning where I bought *more* furniture.  Ruh-roh!

My husband keeps giving me the side-eye every time he glances in the direction of the porch, which of course is where the new furniture went. 

But let me tell you, the furniture was too cool to pass up and the prices were unbelievable! For less than $55, I brought home two Hollywood Regency-esque bamboo cane-back side chairs, a gorgeous, ornate sofa table (that's already spray primed no less!) and a set of four Depression-era dining room chairs with drool-inducing turned legs.

See why I couldn't resist?

All right, enough already with my babbling. 

I'm really here this morning to announce the winner of Carolina Country Living's First Ever/Cottage Charm Giveaway!

Having never held a giveaway before, this was such a fun event and I've been overwhelmed with the response from all of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I also want to thank Kim at The Twice Remembered Cottage for hosting this month-long fete of sheer generosity. She's brilliant for coming up with the concept and so kind to hold the event now for five years running. Let's all give Kim a hearty "thank you!"

So, without further ado, the lucky winner of this bundle of goodies is...

Congratulations, Sherry! 

And thank you again, everyone, for participating in this giveaway. I hope that if you didn't win here at my blog, that you were lucky enough to win at one of the other blogs as all the other winners are posted today!

Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend. I'm off to paint more furniture! :)
