What Lakeside Sent, and Another Winner

It’s been a fun couple of weeks with all the giveaways!  I felt that this last one needed a little explanation, for a couple reasons.  Not the least of which, is that at the time I didn’t know for sure what The Lakeside Collection was sending me!

They sent the mixing bowls:


Three different packages of the organizer boxes (I believe it’s the CD, the shoebox, and the magazine files):


And the mini cake pan set:


Many of you really liked the cake pans, so I thought I’d show you just how truly mini they are!  It comes with two of the 3-pan sets, plus some decorating tools.  They are about 1.25” deep, and the smallest one is 2'” in diameter. One cake mix fills all the pans.  These cakes would look super cute on one of my DIY mini cake plates!

So that’s the prize package.  The second thing I need to explain is this:  on the giveaway post, I sent you over to the original Lakeside post to see what you liked before leaving a comment.  I worded it like this “visit my previous Lakeside post, and leave a comment telling me of the items I blogged about which one you would choose”.  In retrospect, I realized I didn’t make it clear that I intended for the comment to be left on the giveaway post.

Because of that, I included a few comments left on the original post (Oct. 1 or later and which were clearly intended to be part of the giveaway) in the giveaway pool, making the total number of entries 40, even though there are only 34 entries on the giveaway post.  Which is how #35, Michelle of Michelle’s Cozy Cottage came to be the winner!

Thank you to everyone who entered, who perhaps are new to my blog because of it, and who now follow me on Twitter and/or Facebook.  And congratulations to all the winners!

Congrats to Michelle. I am crazy about that mini cake pan set!!! Think I might just have to save my $$ to get one for myself. :)

Hey Holly--What a fun bunch of giveaways you had! Looks like this Lakeside prize turned out to be just the things you would have included if you had gotten to pick for yourself. These are all so cute!

Congratulations to the winner. And thank you, Holly, for including everyone who entered. That was really good of you!
