{monday, monday + the winner . . .}

. . . there was much reminiscing about grandmothers, sad stories about never having had an engagement ring, attempts to sway with flattery and even a little bribery, a few brave men, one of whom wanted to give the prize to the woman of his dreams, but in the end, there could only be one . . . and so, the very warmest congratulations to . . . kristina from texas, the lucky randomly selected winner of the stunning, stunning diamond stacking band give-away:

*** congratulations, kristina! ***

thanks to everyone who entered & hope you’re having a perfectly lovely {holiday} monday,

{p.s.} most hilarious comment goes to anne @ the city sage, with offers of foot massages & chocolate chip cookies . . . and more fun photographs by hans van brakel here
