And the winner of the Alessi kitchen timer from is...

A wonderful response followed the announcement of Chronically Vintage’s first ever giveaway, over twenty people entered for a chance to take home a chic Alessi kitchen timer. Your comments were each terrific! It was marvelous to read what you’d use this darling vintage looking timer for, and I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to everybody who took the time to enter.

Using a random number generator I imputed the number of comments that the giveaway post received, calling the first comment "number one" and so one (there were 24 comments from readers so the winning number was generated from between the numbers 1 and 24), and I’m super delighted to report that the entirely random winner is...

Comment number seven, which belongs to Tracey of At Home on the Ridge! Tracey left the following lovely comment as her entry.

“Looks great,, I love how retro it is. I have to say my favorite recipe really doesn't need a timer, but I'd still like to have one! It's called an Icebox Cake. My mom used to make it for our family and it's very easy. The hardest part is finding sponge cake! I can't seem to find it anywhere, it I guess I'll have to break down and bake one when the weather gets cooler! Looking forward to 100 more!”

Huge congrats, Tracey, I’m delighted for you! Please contact me any time via email with your full mailing address and selection of timer colour (red, blue, or black), so that I can pass along this information to the fine folks over at who will be mailing out "Anna" the Alessi kitchen timer (shown below) directly to you.

Many thanks to everyone who entered this contest. Each of your comments and feedback was greatly appreciated. Sincere thanks also to for pairing up with me to help make my first blog contest such a shinning success!

I plan to hold many other contests on this site in the future, so please stay tuned for your chance to win the next Chronically Vintage giveaway!
