Hip Girls Guide To Homemaking - Winning!

You've got Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking Mail!

There were almost one hundred comments vying to win Kate Payne's Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking: Decorating, Dining and the Gratifying Pleasures of Self-Sufficiency--on a Budget! on my giveaway and review post. A lot of folks left a comment even if they had the book, which, to me, says a lot. I was really impressed at how many people wanted to tackle cleaning projects with a greener outlook. Or to just be better at cleaning. That made me so happy! I feel the exact same way. But mostly, what I loved about the comments is that it showed that people are always striving to be better, live better. Isn't that a beautiful thing?

Lately, I am so excited to get better at my life. When I look at my garden I think: in ten years this is going to be amazing! Looking back to the last six years, since moving into my home, I can see how far I've come. I can't help but to be excited about the next ten! Or cooking: in a few years, if I keep up at this clip, I'll be so much better. There's so many things to learn! Sometimes my hummus or jam or pie crust comes out perfectly. Other times, well, there are those other times aren't there? And for that, there's help. And hope! And a little luck. And without further ado, here are those lucky winners!

First Prize goes to Millie's Mama of Millie's Bookshelf. That's a copy of the book, and a jar of preserves from Ms. Kate Payne herself!

Second Prize goes to Gabrielle of Pittipanna. That would be a jar of jam from lil' ol' me. See, it never hurts to be the last one commenting!

Congrats, ladies. Thanks to everyone who left a comment. Keep on getting better! And if you want another chance to win this inspiring book, head on over to Hitchhiking to Heaven, where there's another giveaway going on. Last day is June 26th!
