Sara Baldwin Designs Blog


Kelly Morisseau is now the proud winner of the best book on Roman African mosaics ever printed (see my last blog post for contest description). Kelly has a wonderful and clever kitchen design blog entitled Kitchen Sync which is a must read (her tagline: Some people jog to get their heart-rates up; I design kitchens…), and is located in beautiful Northern California. We chose her name randomly using the uber-scientific method of throwing all the names in a bowl and picking one. My daughter (right, with blue nail polish) and her friend (left) actually chose the name together while closing their eyes.

They took their job very seriously. Here they display the winning piece of paper…

And here’s a close-up: see, it’s Kelly! (and Kelly from Design Ties, alas, I wrote “Design Ties” on your strip of paper).

Congrats Kelly!!! Thanks so much everyone for all the comments and, on behalf of New Ravenna, the compliments. I was delighted and honored by the response and am very grateful for your time and attention.

    Thank your daughter and her friend for being such great pickers *grin* and thank YOU for the kind words and giving away such a marvelous book!

    Ahhh… my blog partner Kelly was soooooo close!! ;-)

    Congrats to Kelly from Kitchen Sync. As a kitchen designer, I'm sure you'll find great inspiration from your new book!

    congrats Kelly, not of Design Ties!

    Ooooh, I was so excited when I saw that Kelly won — but it's the wrong Kelly!! ;-) Oh well, you can't argue with uber-high tech name selection methods ;-)

    Congrats to the wrong Kelly :-)


  5. Congratulations Kelly ~ Boo Hoo Me!
