AS Chalk Paint Giveaway Winner and A New Little Man

First off, I need to profusely apologize for the tardiness of this post and picking a giveaway winner!  You’d think I was busy or something!  ;)


Yes.  I’ve been very busy with nursing, changing diapers, and double chin smooching.  :)  Our new little man made his grand arrival two weeks ago, on August 4th.  Everything went extremely well, and he has fit right in to our (now) family of 6!  He’s very laid back, which is great a necessity for a forth child.  He’s a super eater, and will be quickly adding to those rolls.  I’m astounded at how much he’s changing every day, and am just trying to soak in his infancy.  LOVE him!!

Thanks so much for your patience with me.  I had every intention of picking a giveaway winner before I had him, but it completely slipped my full-to-bursting mind.  I actually remembered with a gasp sometime during labor in the hospital.  Oh well! 

Without further delay, the winner of the pot of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and brushes from WonderFaux Studio and the $20 Credit to The Hob Knobery Esty Shop is…

Holly from Chic and Lovely!!!

Congratulations Holly!!  Hope you enjoy!

And thanks to everyone for the AMAZING response to the grand opening of The Hob Knobery Etsy Shop!!  I was almost completely bought out of almost everything, which is a great problem to have.  :)  I’ve got a lot of fantastic new stuff to list, and am working on restocking the shop (as quickly as is possible with a newborn around, which is not very.)  My dining room table is covered with cool knobs and pulls of every sort and my very patient husband is rapidly loosing patience with the mess, so I hope to get them photographed and listed throughout this week.  :)

Thank you all for your continued readership!  I very much appreciate your awesomeness!
