I do think I may have won the prize for winning the most Blogland Giveaways! I'm starting to feel a tad bit guilty over the great menagerie of fabulous gifts I've received since I first began blogging about 20 months ago...
So...please permit me to brag a bit about my most recent benefactors and share with you the 2die4 treasures they have sent my way!
I'll start first with Miss Stephanie from Stephanie's Cottage! Stef is an amazingly talented gal and I know you are going to just love her sweet Bloggie! She loves to create and I was over-the-moon excited to receive several things created by her own two hands! I won her recent Giveaway and being true to her word Stef sent me lots of lovely little treasures that arrived on my doorstep about ten days ago.
In a beautifully wrapped box I found so many sweet presents! First...there was this vintage beaded purse that just about left me speechless. I'm NEVER at a loss for words so this was really something! It's already hanging in a place of honor in my studio!
Next was this flirty, lacy, pink rose fan (made with one of my all time favorite discontinued cottons) that took my breath away... So much work and detail! LOVE IT!
Next came these two darling handmade roses and a lovely vintage crochet doily...Yum!
Then...tucked inside nestled within lots of colorful shreds was this tiny pair of WHITE DOVES. I immediately fell in love with them...I love birdie figurines of all kinds...but white ones are my favorite! Along with them came a precious handwritten note on a pink rose tea card.
Thank you so much Stephanie for all the beautiful gifts, for the wrappings, the note and for your very generous ways! Thank you so much for sharing your gifted heart with mine!
I hope those of you visiting me today will hop on over and give Stephanie a little SHOUT OUT and tell her you think she's wonderful, too!
OK...now if winning Steph's Giveaway wasn't fabulous enough I recently won another giveaway from Miss Shelia from The Quintessential Magpie. Now...SheilaGirl is a hoot and she's been around for awhile (not an old gal, mind you...just bloggin for a bit!) so many of you already know of her! Still...I hope you'll stop in for a visit to her sweet little blog. She's been down for the count for a spell and I'm sure she'd love to hear from lots and lots of you bloggin' gals.
Now Miss Sheila is a true giver just like Stephanie! Inside her box were packages that were all individually wrapped and the loveliest handwritten note. You can see above the amazing bath products she sent me that are all PINK (squeal) and the six precious starfish I've wanted for sooo very long now.
Being a transplanted Southern Cali girl I love anything from the ocean and I can assure you there are NO STARFISH in the state of Oklahoma (OK..maybe a fossil or something SOMEWHERE...but prob'ly NOT!).
Next came this gorgeous vintage handkerchief that I absolutely adore! I'm crazy-nutso about vintage linens of any kind and I can promise you that this one is simply amazing! I just love it!
Now...see this sweet pink rose EGG? It is HAND PAINTED and just the tiniest little thing ever! Here is another shot of it to give your the size...
This little cutie was wrapped inside a box all it's own and I think it took me five minutes just to find it amidst all the pretty wrappings! By golly I got her out though and she now proudly sits on my china cabinet right where you see her in the top photo! This little beauty once belonged to Sheila's Momma and I absolutely LOVE IT and her for sending it to me.
Now...last but not least are two little presents Sheila sent for my Miss K. I re-wrapped them (Yes! Of course I knew they were for her and YES I peeked)! See the little PINK PIGGY Spatula and the PINK PIGGY WHISK you see in the lower right corner? Well...those are for my grand-girl for when we bake together on her next visit! I'll share pictures of our favorite little girl and her piggies very soon!
If you aren't familiar with The Quintessential Magpie, Miss Sheila herself, I hope you'll make time for at least a quick visit! You'll love her and you will adore her sweet site.
Thank you Shelia for sharing such lovelies with me! I can't thank you enough for your friendship and for being so incredibly generous and kind!
Now..since I've won soooo many neat things of late I just MIGHT have to disqualify myself for a time so some other sweet bloggin' peeps can have a chance to win as well (unless of course someone is giving away a refrigerator...I really NEED a new one!).
Blessings for a fabulous Friday!
Love to you~
