Let me explain first. I am one of those people who never, EVER, EVER-EVER won anything spontaneously or otherwise IN MY LIFE.
You can imagine my surprise then, back just before Thanksgiving, when a bloggy friend of mine--Laura at Decor to Adore emailed to let me know I had won her giveaway. I was shocked. Stunned. Thrilled. Excited.
A week later the sweet little package arrived full of goodies--I only wish I had been using a camera rather than a cell phone, but I was so excited that I was doing good to even remember that I needed a picture if I would be blogging. . . .
A box chock-full of Thanksgiving/Fall goodies. Napkins, dish towels, soap, lotion, salt and pepper shakers, a cute little scarecrow(who will perfectly replace the one I discarded because the cat ate it!). . .notepad and other goodies. FUN! Plenty to keep me OFF the "seasonal" aisle at the local big-box store NEXT fall, let me tell you! (My husband thanks you too, Laura!)
~Please excuse the countertop mess also inadvertently in the picture. We live in my kitchen!~
So the holidays ensued. Christmas in all its tinsel and glitter and GLORY. . .
Fuzzy picture to indicate passage of time--aren't I CLEVER???
THEN, on New Year's Eve, I received an email from Minimaker--Gaye--that I had somehow been randomly picked to win HER giveaway--on her blog, My Small Obsession.
This week the package arrived with the MINI things in it. Enough mini goodies to get my new dollhouse up and running for Christmas stylishly-and-yet-vintagey(how did she KNOW that was a perfect fit for me?)!
Teensy shiny-brite-like ornaments, a Grinch card, a LETTER--to Santa, or FROM a loved one overseas? A mini-mini dollhouse kit--CUTENESS!
A mini television with the mini dvd already playing-- A Christmas Story. . .
"It's a MAJOR AWARD!" ;-)
These cookies take the cake--TINY CUTENESS!!!!! Sorry the picture is fuzzy. Not to indicate time passing, but just to indicate my less-than-wonderful camera HATES my shaky hand AND up-close picture-taking! I wish you could see the detail, especially on the tiny Santa face cookie!
Ah, rolls of gift wrap and ribbons in a beautiful gift bag. Isn't it wonderful? The bag is just one-and-a-half inches tall!
I am so excited(Did I say that already?)!
So here is my official blog-world THANK YOU to these two fun, creative, giving ladies who have blessed me with PRETTIES.
Do me a favor and hop over to check out their much-better-than-mine blogs. They both really do wonderful work!
NOW, I am really wanting to do a giveaway, but am wondering what in the world lil' ol' me could offer. . . still thinking it over, but KNOW that it is percolating around in my wee little brain.
I still can't believe I WON something! :)
Happy day to yoU!
