First, let me give big thanks to everyone who contributed memories and traditions to my 2010 hearth broom holiday giveaway entry. I never expected to get such long, moving stories! I order to select the winner, I printed off every contributor’s name, cut apart the names, folded them into identical pieces, and let Mr. Homesteader pull out a name from this vintage Santa mug.
Who is it? Who is it?
Eleanor of Nourishing Words has won the hearth broom from the Ozark Folk Center. Eleanor, please email me at Ozarkhomesteader AT yahoo D O T com or, if you’d prefer, the email address that I use to log in to your wonderful blog. Send me your address, and I can ship your broom on Wednesday.
As for giving away anything that can be associated with household cleaning, here’s my advice to fellow bloggers: folks aren’t nearly as interested in brooms as cast iron Dutch ovens! Many, many people read about the broom giveaway, but few entered. Yes, I’m smiling, but it’s a sad smile.
