I am a lucky girl!!!!


I feel like the luckiest girl in the whole world. When I came home from work today I found not one but three fabulous little gifts had arrived at my door! The first one came from Myrna at More than Heirlooms, who I met during the OWOH event. I offered to help Myrna with a few things on her blog and we wound up chatting for hours! She very sweetly asked for my address and sent my these wonderful little treasures. All those little tags where tucked inside the coolest handmade book ever, and they are decorated on both sides!!! The candle will be absolutely perfect in my studio and she made that herself too. Thank you Myrna so much. I just love them all.


The second package contained one of the most stunning necklaces I've ever seen. It came from Terri at Designs by Terri Gordon. It was Terri's first Giveaway and I'm sooooo happy I won!!! This piece is so special, I want to try and figure out a way to enjoy it all the time. Maybe I can figure out a way to put in on a pillow in my bedroom, but still be able to take it off and use it as a necklace when I want to!! Thank you so much Terri!


The third package contained the cutest little soldered charm from Cat at Writing Out Loud. I won Cat's OWOH giveway. I just love soldered charms!!! And it's just as cute on the other side.... Thank you Cat!!!!


For someone who NEVER wins anything... this was a very exciting day!

Now there are just a couple more things I want share. In the last couple of weeks I have several really awesome blogs that I think you would really enjoy (If you haven't already)
Tapestries of Nature is a terrific blog and the things that girl can do with yarn and fibers is terrific!

SassyTrash
makes the most amazing pieces out of repurposed items. Scroll down her blog and see all her amazing things. You won't be disappointed.

The Tin Rabbit is a beautiful new blog and she makes some really pretty things. I think Dawn shared her with us but I thought I would too.

And lastly there is Flea Market Trixie. I put her giveaway up on my sidebar so maybe you have already visited her, but I love her blog!!! I think you will all love her too!!!

So enjoy looking at all the wonderful blogs I've mentioned and have a wonderful weekend!!!

You are one lucky lady! All of your surprises are wonderful. I loved that necklace when I saw it posted and thought about the same thing. I was going to put it in a padded shadow box covered in glass then I could take it out whenever I wanted to dress up. Just thought I would pass this on.. Enjoy your treasures. I am off to checkout the sights you suggested.
Blessings, new friend,
Sharon

Hi Karen,

I was so glad to see that you linked to Judy (Tapestries of Nature). She is such a talented artist and her creations are all so beautiful. I will check out some of these links. It's always great to meet new people.

Charlene said...

Seeeeeeeeeee good things happen to wonderful people! You got back just a tiny bit of the love you so freely give away to others. I am so glad you had these goodies on your doorstep.

Thank you for your sweet words about precious Reba. I am not coping well at all. Today is the first time I have been alone in this house since we moved in. Since Wednesday I had a friend that just happened to be visiting for a few days here or hubby here. But, this morning Joann left & hubby worked. And reality hit...THE HOUSE SCREAMS WITH QUIET! Her rugs are still there, the food bowl gone but, SHE is everywhere I look... yet no where to be found. My heart is broken & I feel so ALONE! But, I know I have the support of my wonderful friends like YOU! Wonderful YOU!!! Thank you. HUGS! Charlene

What's the deal! I feel like the only blogger that didn't win a OWOH giveaway. LOL Do I sound like a poor sport or what! You really scored girl. I am a huge fan of Tin Rabbit & Sassy Trash, but I'll have to check out the others. Have a great weekend. Lisa

www.nelliebugs.com said...

You took awesome pictures of your winnings! I won four giveaways in the OWOH and I didn't even enter 1/3 of all of the giveaways that were there!! Talk about luck, right?! You gave me some ideas for my post where I will be displaying my prizes. Just waiting on the other two packages right now..

Anyway, I stopped by to say thank you for entering my OWOH giveaway (I was giving away the custom tutu and the oatmeal soaps). Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you, there were over 200 entries! How exciting is that?? Well, I do love your blog so I'm a follower now! If you get a chance, check mine out and follow me if you like what you see.

The wallpaper is almost all off- my I must get this figured out what I want to do soon!
