And the winner is...

But first a few things,

- Has anyone had trouble scrolling their blog dashboard on their smartphone? I recently got a new phone and now I can't scroll. Is there a way to fix this? Does anybody know? Anybody...

- I did my first ever sponsored post. I was so excited to be asked to do one but a little anxious. How would my readers respond? Am I computer savvy enough to get it done right? I mean seriously, my header has been crooked for a year now. A big thank you to Brenda over at the Cozy Little House for helping me my daughter fix it! And of course I wondered are they really going to pay me... to write a blog post? Kind of sounds too good to be true. So yeah, all of that but I have to say it went pretty smoothly. Thank you to those who stopped by and left comments. Much appreciated!

I have an Instagram friend who just started herself a blog. And she should! She's so talented. Would you do me a favor and visit Lisa over at The Thrifted House. She's a new blogger. Remember how it feels to be the new kid on the block. Go show her some love :)

I'm hosting a giveaway next week for Homeright. They are giving one of my readers a Finish Max Pro paint sprayer. They gave me one to try earlier this year. It's nice! Be sure to check in next week and sign up for that. 

Okay, so the winner of my fall giveaway is... Shirley Elliott. Okay, you're a noreply on your email so that means I can't find you anywhere. You have 24 hours to contact me with your address so that I can ship the giveaway out to you. I will announce a new winner on Saturday if I don't hear from Shirley. 
Have a great day friends!

Thank you so much for stopping by Thrift My House.


  1. Congrats on the post and Brenda is so helpful!

  2. I'm so glad I could help! I have a blog tips page. One I don't post in enough. I do it in spurts. It is called Brenda's Blog Tips. When I figure out something new that worked for me, I try to remember to put it there for others.

  3. Omg! Sherry you are the SWEETEST ever!!! Thank you so much!! I kinda don't know what i'm doing, when I blog lol. But it's be fun, and imagine my surprise when I saw I had new comments this morning!! How exciting! Thank you so much!!!

  4. Congrats to Shirley for winning! I have been approached myself for a couple of these companies to ask about trying out a product, etc. Like you, I am always very nervous about it. I'm glad yours went well!

  5. Congrats on your sponsored post and congrats to Shirley! I'll stop by to visit The Thrifted House. Love your autumn decorations! x Karen

  10. No problems with my iPhone...I have to say I've never used Blogger Dashboard on it,'s so tiny!!

    I will definitely visit your friend---I remember when I did cartwheels when I got 5 comments!! lol!

    And hurray for the winner. I see nothing wrong with giveaways, I'm having one now. I only ask that they follow my blog because I have so many loyal ladies who should never be overlooked by someone who comments only to win...sad, but that happens. TMI?? :(

  13. Yay for Shirley and for your blogging business. You go girl!

  14. Lucky Shirley! good for her!! How neat that you partnered up with a sponsor.

  15. I can't be of any help I didn't know I could look at my blog on my phone... sorry. Congrats to Shirley, hopefully she will see this in time, I know I don't always get to my email updates right away or they don't come until the next day after a post. Have a great weekend and good luck with your phone.
