Vintage Feedsack Pillow Winner!

Vintage Feedsack Pillow Winner!

We drew the name this morning!

I was so excited to see who would win….I just love this pillow.

Two of my boys were up and ready to help.  Adam folded the papers with the names on them and Levi stirred them in the bowl.

I’ve gotta tell you about the bowl.  I bought it on clearance at Target for about $.50.  It was during the week we were getting our pool and when Levi saw it he said, “Mommy! (gasp!) It’s a pool for my guys!  Yeah!”

His “guys” are his little toy people (mostly pirates) and he was so excited to have a pool for them that I didn’t have the heart to tell him he couldn’t have it.  So now it stays in the nursery full of swimming pirates.

Thankfully he let me borrow it for the drawing.  I had so many entries that they wouldn’t fit in our cereal bowls.

Levi drew the winning name.  I don’t want to be accused of favoritism. That wouldn’t be possible anyway….I couldn’t pick a favorite amongst you if I tried.  You are all so special.

And here’s the winning name, hot out of the swimming pool…..Dru!

Congratulations Dru!  I can’t wait to work with you on your pillow.

Remember you can still order one at my Etsy shop.
