I won a bloggie giveaway!

This is actually my second giveaway I've won...and they have really been examples of God's timing...I was having a wretched day with the first one...and got the news of a win...and when I got the box...I was so blown away. Elyse at Tattered Treasures. Not the greatest of pics as I am using my cell. I might borrow my son's phone to get a better picture. You really need to check out Elyse's Etsy shop at

Here is the first beautifully wrapped and presented.

The frame. You can't really tell, but it's a LOVELY pale green...and the colors have decided what I want to do in our bedroom.

The rest of the goodies...a duckie ribbon (my paternal GM's maiden name was Duck), clippies, stickers, bookmark (that is PERFECT for my latest Aunt Dimity book), chickies and sweet little things.

Giveaway #2 is a lovely rose quartz bracelet from Emily. I have to get her website here exactly. She's got some of the loveliest jewelry, bracelets, earrings, watches. I want a necklace to go with the bracelet and earrings that I won...and I told my kids that I want the watch OR a birthstone bracelet for Mother's Day...the kids' birthstones will work well for a bracelet.

I got the word on both of them at a time when I was having a very down time. I rather dread this part of March. It is coming up on the anniversary of my father's death, our youngest son's birthday and the anniversary of his death. Some years are better than others...but this one is sorta rough. I wish that I could really let Elyse and Emily know just how much these mean to me...but I trust God will bless them beyond measure with success in their businesses and personal lives. Thanks ladies.


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog! OJ pieces are going up in value as time goes on, so I hope your MIL holds on to hers. The black glass story is one that I will soon get to. This house reno has been an ongoing joy, and I hope to show it room by room.
