It's been fun hearing from fellow African violet lovers since posting about the National African Violet Convention. I have emailed 27 brochures to interested growers! This is more than I ever expected and I'm just so tickled that there is that much interest out there. Thank you to all who entered my giveaway or a vintage houseplant book with a chapter on growing these furry-leaved beauties.

Without further adieu, the winner by random drawing is....

I received two violet plants as gifts when I was ill over ten years ago. I combined them into one container, and it still blooms every year. Aside from loving the pretty blooms, it reminds me of the love I felt from my family and friends when I needed it.

Congratulations, Cindy! You have until this Friday at noon central time to email me at with your mailing address. As I continue my summer cleaning, I will have more little impromptu giveaways, including one for an oldie but goodie quilt book. You just never know what I might find in the closets, nooks, and crannies here at Ashton House!


  1. Oh Kimber! Thank you! Yes, Barb - I am lucky! Happy summer to all. :)
