And lastly, after a busy few days, it's FINALLY time to announce the winners of last week's contests! So jealous of these goodies... and this is just the beginning, so much more to come throughout the week. So without further ado, we are pleased to announce all of our lucky readers...

First up, we have the winner from the fabulous Crate and Barrel Thanksgiving inspired contest... this bride wins the king of cool kitchen gadgets, the truly awesome Cuisinart Griddler. Congratulations to Debbie who said...

We just set up our SMP/C&B wedding registry! My fiance wasn’t convinced that we needed to register there, but I showed him some fabulous C&B items online and he agreed that we needed to set one up!  Some of our must- haves on our actual registry:

1. Cuisinart Hand Mixer 5 Speed White: for all my mixing and baking needs… a must-have for the holidays! 2. Electric Fondue 3 qt.: Imagining all the yummy dips I can make with this! 3. Zojirushi Rice Cooker: Definitely a must-have in this household– rice is a staple here! 4. Assam Glass Tea Press: For snuggling with my fiance on cold winter nights.

Next, we had the fantastic giveaway from Chewing the Cud who is generously gifting TEN of their adorable fabric gift wraps to our winner, Leah who said...

I love the "give luck" fabric and it would fit so well with my wedding. We're getting married on a ranch and it's all about the fresh, local food (sorry, I see little piggies and think yummy). Plus we're have a horseshoe pit at our cocktail hour and I'm making napkins for the reception from vintage linens I've been collecting that the print would complement well.

Congratulations Leah!

Twobirds bridesmaids winner will be updated in just a few! for one of our lucky readers. So many options, these truly are the kinds of dresses your girls can wear after the wedding. Congratulations to Lauren who said...

Well I would love to tell you the ones I love and why…First I would like to say they are all amazing…and second my girls are all beautiful and they each have their own body style! That’s why I love each of the following!

I love… “Elizabeth” for Adriane, My maid of honor/sister! She can work anything and I see her working the “Elizabeth”…side note: her middle name!!

I love… “Caroline” for Jessica, the little peek of the back would be something she would be comfortable and amazing in!

I love… “Annie” for Lindsey, this is definitely her style and she would wear it well!

I love… “Jane or Marissa” for Lydia, love the back and she can work it!

We'll be in touch with all winners very soon. Thank you everyone for participating and a HUGE thanks to twobirds bridesmaids, Chewing the Cud, and Crate and Barrel.
