Dishin' On The Winner!

Last Monday, That Old House
announced a Giveaway of a book.

A book called DISH.
A big book called DISH, that celebrates what so many of us love so much . . . dishes.
Written by a House Beautiful features editor.
And I'm pleased to announce our winner.
From The Gazebo House, it's Rett -- or "Rettabug," as she's known.

And no matter what kind of dishes Rett loves,
from blue and white
to mid-century modern
to classic . . . .
She can find it in DISH.
Congratulations, Rett!
Now email me so I can get your mailing address --

Dish: 813 Colorful, Wonderful Dinner Plates

And that's all I've got on this sunny, beautiful Monday.
I'm off now to finish (ha!) setting up my booth at the antiques center,
and then it's errands, and then home to begin Thanksgiving prep.

My T.B.D.B.T. List for Thursday has shrunk.
This is the current list:
1)  Clean the bathrooms.
2)  Find enough chairs.
3)  Feed everyone.  Lots.  Well.

Seriously, friends.  Doesn't that really cover it?
All the best and congrats again to Rett! -- Cass
