...family, friends, home and other tidbits of a blessed life

It's Monday, so that means the winner of the Mikasa china is....

A fresh, sophisticated addition to your table, Daylight brings the vibrancy of nature into your home. A wide array of distinctly designed porcelain accessories are adorned with lush leaves in a variety of rich, green hues. Perfect for casual and formal entertaining alike. Made of fine porcelain from Portugal. Dishwasher and microwave safe.
This is the hardest thing I've ever had to do! Choose a winner that is. I do want to thank Mikasa for their abundant generosity, for allowing me to host a giveaway and for being an integral part of this tablescaper's life!
First, from Mikasa, the final count on the votes on FB:

Daylight: 56 votes
Antique Orchard : 50 votes
Sketch Floral: 50 votes

Looks like a wonderful set of 6 placesettings of the fabulous Daylight pattern is going to a new home.

Then,  I waded through all the lovely comments AND followers AND Facebook comments for those that loved the Daylight pattern. Remember, if you left a comment, voted and followed you were in the drawing!

Since I couldn't actually get Random.org to keep up with all this, I put all names in a jar and had a colleague draw a name.

Drum roll please...........

Have you ever won anything Bill?
Did you vote for Daylight?
Are you a follower?
I think now you have two sets of Mikasa dishes!
Yes it's you - Bill at Affordable Accoutrements!

Can you email me/message me your address, phone number, etc; so I can pass it along to Mikasa please?

Because I appreciate all of you who entered in the drawing, who followed, who commented and played along, I will be drawing a second winner for a set of 8 white dinner napkins, monogrammed in your choice of monogram style, and your choice of monogram color. Drawing will be held on Wednesday April 27, 2011. Come back and see what I did with my set of Daylight and comment that day for this giveaway!

OK, I would be pouty and jealous if the winner were not one of my all time favortie bloggers!!

I can hardly wait to see what Bill does with this.

The pressure... the pressure...

Thanks for the opportunity to try, Marlis!

I can hardly believe this, Marlis! Since I never win anything, this is truly unexpected. Thank you so much for hosting this generous Mikasa giveaway! I did vote for Daylight; I think it's a stunning pattern.

The fact that you're such a talented blogger and tablescaper makes this an even greater honor.

Warmest regards,

P.S. Thank your colleague for me! ;)

Marlis said...

Congratulations to you Bill. I am delighted with your good fortune and know that you will be inspiring us with what you do with these dishes.. I can see them set on your sunroom table with the light streaming in.
