A winner and a weekend at Dookie....

Christine from Auntie's Quaint Quilts is the winner of the giveaway! Congratulations Christine. I will be in touch with you soon!
Thank you so much to everyone who entered.
And, it was wonderful to hear from bloggers who have been following me for ages but never commented. I hope it won't stop here! Over the long weekend we visited my amazing Grandmother in Dookie. See this post about DookieThe boys climbed "Saddleback" - what a view. I forgot my sneakers.....
We had a wander about the little town and visited
The Dookie Emporium again. As usual it was stocked to overflowing with wonderful treasures. I walked out with a whole spool of black velvet 1" ribbon for $5! Bargain.We didn't have room in the car for much else!

The emporium shares space with the
Dookie Havest Cafe. We had a really great coffee here.Now, as usual, after coming home from my Grandmother's I am going on a diet - too much wonderful food and pudding! We had a great long weekend. I hope you did too?

Congratulations to the winner.
Wooooow, that Dookie emporium looks so wonderfull! I think It's so great to get spoiled with delicious food, by your grandmothers. My grandmother sadly isn't here anymore ,but when I was little and I visited her she cooked me the best meals ever.
I'm glad you had a wonderful weekend,
Hugs Ester
