Congratulations to: Tracy O, the winner of our recent contest to win a new HGTV Home Shaw Floors area rug. I paid $9.09 and did an audited drawing via Random.org, and Tracy’s comment – #578 in my complete & comments-in-order-as-they-came-in admin panel log of all 1,018 entries — came up the winner. What were her lucky words? Tracy wrote:
Fingers still crossed that I’m the lucky winner of a beautiful new Shaw rug! My living room wood floor hopes so too.
Tracy has been alerted… she responded that she is indeed alive not a bot… and she’s already in touch with the nice folks at Shaw, who contributed the prize. Hey, readers — don’t fret that you didn’t win this time. There will be another giveaway in September! I’ll tell you more about that coming up. Meanwhile: Congratulations to Tracy — I’ve already asked her to send a photo of the rug in place. And many thanks to everyone who participated — it was so much fun to reader your comments, which seemed to get sillier and livelier and certainly more poetic as the week long contest went along.
