OK...I have to BRAG! I won something (AGAIN)! Yippy Skippy! :) But before I share with you all about my treasures I have to tell you something first...

It's a miracle I got MY WIN at all as my CRAZY SILLY POSTMAN mis-delivered it to the street behind me! This has happened before when I've purchased things off eBay and On-line. Anyway...the lady that lives at the house number that matches mine is very elderly and sometimes FORGETS THINGS! One time she had a box of mine for 6 months! Anyway, when I was walking my doggie, Mollie the Molinator today she came out and handed me this BOX!

"Rebecca, sweetie! This is yours! I've been meaning to bring it to you for days and days...!"




Now..I couldn't WAIT to get home and open up the box I knew had been shipped to me from Sweet Laura at White Spray Paint (she chose that name because her Momma painted everything with white spray paint...how cute is that?)...

When I opened the box I found the most amazing Christmas Pretties tucked inside. Wrapped up in the sweet toile paper and red and cream was the cookie cutters you see above (LOVE THEM, LAURA!) and....

These darling Tea-Towels (which are going to look fabulous in my kitchen in just a FEW weeks... And....

This absolutely 2die4 Accent Rug (which is going to be PERFECT right by my door! And to top it off she tucked inside the SWEETEST card reminding me I was a Child of the Most High!

I am just soooo happy! I rarely win anything and now I've won TWO DRAWINGS! One from Martha and now one from Laura!

Yes, God is good! And so are his peeps! Especially the ones who Blog (and draw my name!)...

Thank you Laura so very much! You have blessed me! You are an amazing writer and you make me smile with your timely words of wisdom and encouragement. I visit you every day even if I don't comment! Go visit Laura! You will LOVE HER, Too!

Blessings to you as you treasure gifts from the heart...Rebecca

Congratulations on your win, beautiful Rebecca! What great goodies you've gotten. That's too bad about your messed up mail. I would imagine that happens to quite a few of us.
Hope all is well, Dear One.
be a sweetie,

Thank you rebecca-

What an amazing story! Our mail system is so bizarre where I live, people often hand deliver wedding invitations.

I am so glad you like your new Christmas things. It is right around the corner!

You lucky girl!! Those Chistmas "thingies" are fabulous!!
We have a postman who has a bad temper.... One time I purchased a vintage caserole dish off Ebay. He parked out front of my house & had a hissy for one reason or another & heaved the box. Needless to say it shattered... I watched him do it & yep, I reported him.
He still delivers mail... Unions ..bah-hum-bug!!
Have a great day!

I'd go visiting that neighbor every day just to make sure she didn't have all this fabulous stuff. hee,hee,hee.

Sweet Rebecca you make me smile! I love how I can feel your excitement and love of life! I'm so glad you won...that is, if I couldn't anyway. But there is no one I would rather lose to than you.
Love and hugs,

Hi Rebecca,
Congratulations on your win. Those were very sweet and lovely gifts. Love the tea cloths! Before you know it it'll be Christmas time and you will be displaying them all through your home. Enjoy! Have a great day.

Hi Sweetie!
Good comes to those who wait, and look you have won again. I am so thrilled for you. Love the cookie cutters and with a baker like you what better thing to win. Congrats sweetie.

I guess it is a good thing you walked the dog. Maybe you will have to make it a daily ritual just to check around and make sure your mailman didn't leave anything at the neighbors house around the block.

Hope you are having a wonderful week. Country hugs sweetie and much love, Sherry
