Bon Voyage.....Winner!

A huge thanks to all of you who took the time to 'invite' us to your town and show us around! And another huge thanks to those of you who also took the time to take the tour and guess whose town you were in. Your names were numbered and the numbers placed in the random number generator and the winner is......Aunt Kathy!!!!
Congratulations Kathy - the souvenir gift bag will be on its way to you soon. Enjoy!
I'll keep the links on the sidebar for those of you who have not had a chance to take the tour yet. Thanks once again - I enjoyed this anniversary celebration immensely! Next time we will have to do it for real!

I hope that you are all packed, have your passports and tickets ready because we have 19 towns to visit!

While it would be great if we could all travel to each place at the same time, I'm afraid that schedules, time differences, etc. would make that just about impossible. So instead, for the rest of this month, take your time and visit each of the towns on the sideboard of this blog. Each link will take you either to a blog, a post, or a website, where you can read all about what you will be doing in that town.

Be sure to leave your host a comment on their blog, or a reply to their post to let them know how you enjoyed your visit. Then answer the questions below for a chance to win a souvenir gift bag from my town. The bag is handmade by a local artisan (that would be me LOL), and is filled with a Downeast Maine Cookbook, roving from Friends Folly Farm in Momouth, ME., Sandalwood Sage handmade soap from the Prospect Harbor Soap Co. , The Lobster Chronicles by Linda Greenlaw, a Maine author, a mini-album to put photos of your trip in, Note cards by artist Pam Britton, a miniature Portland Head Lighthouse, and a few surprise goodies.
Send your answers to me at grammieknitsatyahoodotcom by August 31 to be eligible to win.

I WON??? Well what a great thing to happen on what started out to be a crappy day.

I enjoyed visiting all the blogs as well.

And a little shout to Shelly for doing the tour with me, it's always nice to travel with a friend. I might just share some of the prize with her too.
