Is A Bitter Betty Better Than A Boring Bobby?


... NEWS FLASH ...... Bloggers Reject Substitute Bettys!!! ...

Yes ELEVEN of you clever bloggers managed to pick the real Bitter Betty... Stepford Betty #13... Well done.. You can now go through life knowing you have the ability to pick a real girl from a clone.. This could be very a useful talent in the not too distant future!! hahaha. Sadly though there can only be TWO winners! So....



...... KATHERINE & SUZAN ....... Come On Down!! .......



Yes.. I decided as you were all so clever I'd pick two!!! One for the black & white FlyBoy print and one for the colour... Katherine [The Old Boathouse] was the first name drawn from the hat and as Suzan [Old Grey Mare] was the first in with the correct answer, she gets a print also. I thought about asking Mr Piano Accordion Man to do the draw... but his hands were full slinging '????' ...[let's call it music!!! ] ...


The following clever bloggers did pick a real Betty from a Bitter Betty
.. and for that they deserve a mention ...

Carole - Maynard's Greenhouse

Jennifer - JBeaudetStudios

Jelly Shane - Just Martha

Life Love, Clutter and Other Beautiful Things

Marina- Bonheur Maison

Suzan - Old Grey Mare

Peggy - According To Braswell

Stephanie - La Dolce Vita

Sweet Audrey - Audrey's Corner

Katherine - The Old Boathouse

Zuzu - Cottage In The Woods

While I did not win your prize, I have won two through you. I just want to say thank you for that and for being supportive when I had no followers. You are a gem, even when you are being Julie.
