Winner of Giveaway Announced!

I have a winner for my give away I did to celebrate my 100th post. The winner is Darlene of Darlene Days!
You may be wondering how I chose a winner. This is how I did it:
I had 204 comments from Monday-Saturday which were the days for the giveaway.
I wanted to come up with a way that would be fair and not be so time consuming, so I let the computer pick the winner! I went to a Random Number Generator and Checker and entered 0-204. The computer picked number 57. I went back through the posts and comment number 57 was made on Tuesday by none other than Darlene!
She said:

Great garage sale finds...my favorite is the lamp!! I just LOVE your porch!
I am so glad you made it safely through the storm....I was thinking of you
yesterday.


I highly recommend this way of picking your winner for a giveaway! It is fast easy and fair.

Congratulations Darlene!
Please email me your address so I can get your package shipped to you!

Congratulations Darlene!!! Yes, go get those lottery tickets.

Diane I like your way of picking a winner. It took a while to type them up and cut them when I did it.
