After omitting some duplicate entries and counting all of the wonderful comments, "Tabbiewolf" was the winner! Congrats Tabbiewolf! Please click my profile and drop me an email so I can get these babies into your loving arms for some steamy cooking!

The comments for this contest were incredible - it's fascinating how these small kitchen tools might have such meaning as we create food, preparing something for sustenance or indulgence. Whether the coveted accoutrement was handed down through generations or newly purchased - it seemed no less cherished, though I did love hearing of those tools handed down through families - loaded with memories and patina.

And, I'm so very glad to hear I'm not the only crazy who caresses her kitchen tools a little, when no one is looking - because wow, if you read the comments - I am SO not alone there.

[By the way - entrant "SteveibCanyon" - yes, I'd love a copy of your Lava Cake recipe, but I see no way to contact you - so shoot me an email if you see this!]

I'm so disappointed. Let me tell you - after all I suffered tonight, I deserved that prize! Friends of mine had a colony of bats move into their attic and when experts were called in, 75% vacated as planned. The other 25% made their way into the living quarters of the house. They decided to come and stay at my house until things have been cleared up. I came over to help them pack up because they are an older couple. I was only there for one hour. In that time, a few bats bumped into me.

It turns out that when they bumped into me, they more than likely bit me. The experts believe that the 25% in the living quarters were likely infected with rabies. I just got out of the E.R. to the tune of several shots in my neck, buttocks, arms, and more. It was painful and horrible.

I am so grumpy.

But I have a new nickname which gives me the giggles: batgirl.

Finally -- superhero status after all the wishing!

Blessings and congrats to the winner!

Contests are fun. Especially when what I have to look forward to is laundry. Living the dream ...

Kimberly said...

Ann said...

Lacy - BATGIRL, indeed, my gosh! That is one painfully earned title, girl.

THANKS to everyone else - I was shocked at so many entries too! I think it was just the seductiveness of those little pimpettes...

This was a fun contest - what a great idea! I'm so glad I have my Velvet Lava Cafe fix to look forward to every week. You're my most clicked RSS feed...at home AND at work (of course, at work I only check when I'm on my lunch hour, in case anyone is wondering). Hey, just looking at your Twitters on the left there--my dog used to smell like popcorn all the time before he went to the Happy Hunting Grounds for dogs. Cumin, now that's very interesting.

Loved this set, what a great giveaway! Thanks for doing it and congrats to the winner.

Rebecca said...

Tell you what, if Tabbiewolf decides she just doesn't want them, I could take them off your hands, I suppose. So, just bear that in mind. :)

Ann you're not alone on the kitchen gadgets, oh no! Just so you can have an idea I'm buying a new kitchen cabinet thingy to put more stuff (under the bed is not doing it for me anymore...)

grace said...

ooh congrats to Tabbiewolf :)

by the way...what is lava cake? :)

Ann said...

Firefly - Popcorn! Don't you just love how dogs smell? Seriously, I love it. Marcel has smelled like cumin all weekend and I can't get enough of it.

Sarah - thanks! I almost want to do it again, it was so fun.

Rebecca - "you suppose" - I love it!

Clumbsy Cookie - when I read about your under the bed thing - I laughed out loud, that was so great!

Grace - Oh, girl! It's a chocolate cake that is baked on the outside and then when you dip your fork in - the inside should be like chocolate lava - divine!

Hee... kitchen tool caressing... I once got kicked out of Bed Bath and Beyond for suggestively fondling a Calpholon cookie tray.
