We Have a Winner!

We have a winner!

The Traveling Totes gang recently held a 

Where's My Tote contest.

Readers were asked to leave a comment on each of the six 

TT blogs as to where they thought each tote was visiting.  

All correct answers left on each blog were included in the draw.

I had lots of correct guesses for the photo above.

Those who follow along here at HFTS know 

that I go to Round Top Antiques Week

each fall and spring.

Miss Merri Mack is shopping Marburger Farm.

Next venue is September 27 - October 1, 2016.

Hope to see you there!

The winning name selected from all the entries is

Stacey @ Poofing the Pillows.

Congratulations, Stacey!

I know you will enjoy these beautiful soaps!

Thanks to each of you who joined in for the giveaway.

Look for more give aways in coming months as 

the Traveling Totes share adventures.

Join us September 1st,  when we'll share summer travels.

Miss Merri Mac plus a new traveling bag and 

this TX girl escaped the Texas heat for a little get away.  

Can you guess where we went?


The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.


  1. Well, unfortunately there aren't many places to escape the heat this summer but I'm going to guess Colorado. Have fun at Round Top.

    Congratulations to Stacey! I think you went New England. Looking forward to seeing your new traveling bag that joined Miss Merri Mac.
