A Haven for Vee

Winners, Winners, Chicken Dinners — NOT!

~Ready to Go~

Every morning this week, my personal mailman has taken little packages to the post office for me. Just like the real mail man, he braves all sorts of weather: Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these courier from the swift completion of their appointed rounds. This morning it was ice! 

~My Very Own Mail Man~

In order to make things a bit easier for myself and my winners as well, I have added a winners' list, with codes and everything, on my sidebar all the way to the bottom. That way, you can check the status of your win. Quite a few have not yet discovered that they are winners so I have no addresses. Those who send their addresses get the prize first...usually. Whatever! All those who won will eventually get the prize. I think the Post Office is already sick of John, but tough! That's what they're there for and we're keeping them in business. 

Have a terrific day!


  1. You are so organized! I looked at your list...you've been a busy bee! I didn't sign up because I won your last giveaway! But I would have liked being 'on your list' and checked off! heehee! Have fun! ♥♥♥

  2. My goodness...you are a giver. That is so sweet that you have a personal mailman, too. Yikes! Ice!

  3. WOW! I missed that part of your other post where commentors won too! You are sooooo sweet! I am so excited my name is on that list. There is a check by it too!


  4. Hahahah Vee, you crack me up! I love this mornings post! Love the pics of your private mail man, and he's cute too!!! LOL He's such a love and LOVES you soooo much to do this for you in bad weather.

    Have a good day!

  5. Vee
    Your John is such a dear!
    Congrats to all your magnet winners
    I see a Kimberly-is that me? Now don't be embarrassed to tell me if it's someone else. I promise I can take it like a big girl!!

  6. Know what? You are reinforcing my lack of ever doing a give-away. -gigggles- All this mailing stress!!!

    See, I knew I had a good reason, not to join in on give-away's, like all the nice ladies do. It's the whole *she-bang*.

    Picking a winner. Getting the address. Packaging the item up. Getting it to PO. Mailing it.

    Thank you!!!!


    Yes, I am with-out-shame! You don't have to tell me that. -giggles-

  7. Vee, I am so excited to get one of your magnets! :) Whenever it comes, will be fine.

    John's a good man...


  8. You are very organized and how nice to have a personal mailman in the home! :)


  9. Maybe I didn't think you're serious, but in order to help our postal system stay in business, I'm sending you my address! And, of course will love receiving a piece of your inspiring creativity ... that is, I might become inspired to also be creative!!! Thanks!

  10. Vee, you need a new mailman, I'll loan you ours...he is a very nice fellow...
    still JJ at One Cat Shy of Crazy...

  11. Please tell John thank-you for me, too.

    I'll bet the postal workers are very happy to see a pleasant face and are glad for business to prove they're still needed.

  12. Just stopping in to say Hi...I have arisen above this cold I hope! Hope you are having a great week!!

  13. Waving to you! Cool beans on all the winners. Poor John..smiles

  14. Must be nice to have a personal male man! You are a generous person. Have a good day.

  15. How nice of John to be your mailman! : )
    I see a little check mark by my name and I am excited to be getting one of your magnets!! : )

  16. A personal mailman.... that's wonderful and ice or snow on your steps..... wow! It's 82 degrees here right now.

  17. Thanks again, Vee, and thanks to John. I received my blue bird of happiness today! I love it. xo

  18. You are so well organized and have such a great personal mailman.
    I was pleasantly surprised to see my name on the list since I just recently received such a wonderful package from your Haven. You are too kind.
    I would think the post office workers would be glad to see John with the way the post offices are struggling now.

  19. Surprise, surprise! There was a magnet in my mailbox today in the faraway wild west! Thank you so much, it was the perfect choice for a girl who lives in the City of Roses.

  20. I see my name! And it has a tick!
    Thank you to you and your very own mailman!

  21. I just spotted my name on your Winner's List. To say the least, I was surprised. I will email you with my address. Thanks!

  22. Thank you, Vee! My package came on Friday, but I've been so busy I haven't had time to sign on to the computer to let you know. I love my Honest Abe magnet -- he is one of my favorite Presidents, as you know. Now, when I look at him on my refrigerator, he'll remind me of you! Not a bad association if you ask me. :)
