And the Winners Are.......

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you all for your continued kind words and interest in my little ole Blog!!   After gathering all the entrants for the drawing there was quite a bowl full of slips of paper.  (I had some snaps but Blogger is acting up again so I can't post them).  I had the Hag Claw Pull three winners from the Bowl of Destiny......  In no particular order...... 
The First winner is.....

Patricia - she left this comment...  Simple Pleasure said... I would love to win the delicate porcelain bowl...seems most fitting, as St. Patrick is my name/saint! Busy Hands...Happy Heart Patricia

The Second Winner drawn was....
Carolyn - she left this comment.... Stitchinowl said...Throw my name into the Bowl of Destiny. I would be honored to win any of the Beleek pieces. It would be a nice reminder of reading about your Estate Sale weekend adventures on your blog.  Carolyn 

and last but not least.....

The Third Winner is...  
Lisa - she left this comment....Lisa said...Oh, Edgar I would love to win that piece of Belleek! Please, please enter me in. I have a little glass case that contains 3 shelves of Belleek. My great-grandmother collected Belleek and when she passed away, I received her whole collection. Since then, for every special birthday (like when I turned 25, 30, 35, 40, etc) my mother and grandmother continue to add to the collection. I have some really old pieces in the cabinet as well as some new ones...and ones that were signed by a member of the Belleek family.
The reason my great-grandmother started to collect these porcelain pieces w/shamrocks is because of the small amount of Irish blood that ran through her veins. As she would tell the story...her mother, Katherine O'Connell who was Irish married the milk man who was German. The romance of the story always intrigued the family...however, Katherine was not from Ireland, but from Iowa :) Oh, well - you gotta love family stories.

Take care...I hope that I have the luck of the Irish in order to win the bowl :) 

Congratulations to everyone and Thank you all again for entering!!!!  If the three winners could send me their addresses I will get the three pieces of Belleek out next week!!

I hope everyone had a super St Patrick's Day - did anyone watch "The Quiet Man" - I certainly did, and loved every minute of it!!

There you go sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by - do come again!!  Have a great weekend.

Take care,
edgar
