I Won a Speculaasplank!

What a great surprise I had this morning when I checked my e-mail and found a message from Ellen Borggreve of Ellen Borggreve Designs saying that I won the speculaasplank from her blog give-away.

Ellen lives in The Netherlands and her blog has a wonderful explanation about Sinterklaas and these wooden molds for making treats for good girls and boys. Please visit her blog to find her story as she tells it so much better than I possibly could.

She was able to find two of these special molds, kept one for herself and very generously held a give-away on her blog for the other one. And I was the lucky winner!

She makes the most beautiful award-winning bears and other critters. Her work is amazing. Take a look at her blog and see if you don't think so, too. I aspire to own one of her bears one of these days.

Thank you so much, Ellen!

Hi Marlys! I love your blog and I am still thrilled to bits that you are so happy about your speculaasplank win! You made me smile big time and that is why I am tagging you...It is part of a fun little blog game and Shelli tagged me earlier this week. It is a most amusing way of finding out random facts about other people and also a great way of creating more interests for the blogs of those that have been tagged. Just think of 5 random facts about yourself and go to my blog at
to learn how to play this game. I will leave you to this and come back to see what random facts you can come up with! I can't wait! Hugs Ellen
