Afternoon, peeps! In the last couple of weeks, there was a giveaway going on here for a recent BBC DVD set. Up for grabs was everything from the recent Downton Abbey season to the recent BBC popular series, Call the Midwife. Now we have winners (there was also an Amazon gift card) and the decision making begins.

Drumroll, please...

Winner of the BBC series is,

 ■ Valerie G.

Winner of the Amazon gift card is,

■ Amy C.

Hooray! Congrats, Valerie and Amy. Both of you ladies should now have an email (that you shared in the Rafflecopter) asking for a mailing address in your inbox; please just get back to me by January 23rd with that information. For everyone else, I am thrilled you participated in this giveaway  - thank you for sharing about them and joining in the fun!

This week, we'll also be offering a copy of Julie Lessman's latest so if anyone out there hasn't read the novel yet (which I doubt *wink*), here's a chance to nab a copy.

Hope your week is off to a smashing start. Be happy, friends.
