I Know I Am The Luckiest Person On Earth

I have been the lucky winner of some of the neatest giveaways in blogland recently. I feel like it's Christmas and I am so thrilled with all of them.

Florida Sue @ Luxe Lanai recently had a wonderful giveaway of a gorgeous bracelet that she has always loved. To my surprise, I won this fabulous piece. Just look at the pretty way she has it wrapped. She even went to all the trouble to put glitter initials on the package spelling my name. I thought this made the wrapping so special and personal and I was thrilled to see it.


This is the beautiful bracelet. I took several pictures trying to capture the true beauty of it, but none of the pictures really do it justice. It truly is exquisite. I will so enjoy wearing this piece often. Thanks again Sue, I really do love it.


Then this wonderful package came in the mail all the way from England. It is from Lorraine@ The BAlancing Kiwi. She was participating in a "Pay It Forward" meme and the first three people to comment on her post won. You send something to the three people and they in turn send something to three people and so on.


Well, she really did her homework on me. She knows that I love tea and she knows that I love roosters, so she sent me this wonderful Rooster Tea Cozy. Isn't it just the neatest thing you have ever seen. I am loving it. The fabric pattern just so is me. Thanks again Lorraine, I really love it and will think of you each time I use it.


Also as most of you know Susan @ Between Naps On The Porchhad her anniversay giveaway. She had several wonderful gifts for several days of celebrations. Well, can you believe I won the knives. I am so excited, and they are such wonderful knives. Do you see the little bees on the landles. Thank you too Susan, this is such a treat. I really am thrilled.


At this point I am feeling very spoiled. lol However, I love all these wonderful presents and I will so enjoy them all. Thanks again to everyone.

  40. Congratulations on your win. I like your planter on top of your cupboards and the wooden roosters. My favorite are the pictures; however, the ceramic roosters are so cute, expecially the one on the globe. It's nice to see the plates displayed.
