Two winners have been crowned!

Hello! Hard to believe its Friday again..this week flew. How scary is it that we are starting to  see so many signs of Christmas and Thanksgiving around? No matter where I am, at CVS or a dept store, my market with all it's displays for stuffing and Thanksgiving fixings, opening up a newspaper.....a gentle reminder that it's really not so far away, scary! It gives me heart palpitations and I think this weekend would be a great time to come up with list of just what needs to be done until then (a lot).

Anyway moving onto less stressful topics, the response to the Blue and White Love contest was just incredible. Can you believe I got just under 2000 votes!!!!! There were so many fabulous entries, it made choosing very difficult and really they are all winners in  my book....any fan of blue and white is a friend of mine:)

So thank you to each and every one of you who took the time to send in your beautiful pictures, I so enjoyed them as I know everyone else did too. Thanks to the user friendly wonderful reliable poll  services of Polldaddy, we have two winners (one for each round). I was going to originally have a "showdown" between the two but decided they each deserve a prize:)

And here are the winners.......

Round 1,  congratulations goes to-

Sinead who sent in this lovely photo of her back patio all decked out in blue and white

An honorable mention for a very close 2nd place goes to this beautiful  shot from Katie

And for round 2, congratulations goes to......

This wonderful shot from Susan of a darling pooch who clearly loves his blue and white too!

And a very close 2nd and honorable mention goes to this gorgeous kitchen

To the two first place winners......Please contact me  to claim your prize,  your choice of  one of these wonderful blue and white items!

Many thanks again to all who sent in their pictures as well as all those who participated in the voting. My next contest will be officially announced next week but put your thinking caps on, the theme will be "Hoorah for the holidays" and it can be interpreted any way you wish:)
