Winners Plucked from Vintage Peanut Tin

I am overjoyed with the success of the third annual National Tie One On Day. To the one hundred + participants, thank you for bringing a bit of happiness to someone in need of a little kindness.

Now, to the drawing for 5 copies of The Apron Book, 5 copies of Apronisms, and 5 vintage aprons from my very own collection – rather than allow my computer to randomly select the winners, I decided to choose the winners the old fashioned way: by drawing their names from a hat…only not a hat, but rather from a wonderful old tin that is normally my peanut holder. So I wrote out all the entries, cut the paper into slips, folded them, and dumped them into the tin

Then I set up the scene and took this photo
