The results are in…drum roll please…


What?  I didn’t win?  How can this be?  Oh well, I had a great time with this contest.  Thanks everyone who took the time to vote for me.  I really appreciate it.  Alas, all was not a total loss…My sweet hubby won a raffle prize..the free form quartz flame (which I have already stolen for my office!  hehe!)
