Packages in the Mail and Huge Thanks You's

I just never get amazed how generous Bloggers are, and the sweetest people on earth. I have been so lucky to win several Giveaways lately, and it feels like it's Christmas already to me. I have been so excited that another package has been coming in the mail every few days.

Now you all know Laurie @ Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie, and you know what a sweetie and how generous she is. Well she had a giveaway and I WON!!!!!! Below is the gorgeous cake plant and server that I won. Isn't it just to die for. I absolutely love it.

Well, that wasn't all she sent, she also included this to die for candy bar and this beautiful little purse note pad. Now I had never seen anything so fancy in my whole life. I will really look pretty chic when I pull this out of my purse to make a note.

Then Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss was having a giveaway and I WON again. This is such fun, don't you just love to win! The wonderful book Blogging for Bliss is what I won. This is so interesting and so full of all kinds of wonderful and useful information about blogging. I am devouring every word of it and hopefully I will learn how to make my blog a little better.

Martha @ Mid-Atlantic Martha was having a giveaway too, and you won't believe that I won. Now I know the Angels in Heaven are really smiling at me now. She sent me the most gorgeous wire basket trimmed with ribbons and a beautiful ribbon rose, then she filled the basket with all kinds of goodies. See the pretty note cards, the wonderful candle, pumpkin tissues and note tags. What a beautiful basket filled with such wonderful treasures.

Ok, now I know you are all beginning to dislike me now, but this present is not something I won. Rettabug @ The Gazebo House won my Pay It Forward giveaway and she sent me this stunning linen tea towel that she monogrammed with my last name initial as a thank you for winning. Now how about that for being generous. She wins a gift and sends me a gift as a thank you.

Well, I just have to say that all of these marvelous ladies are ones that you really don't want to miss. They are gorgeous and so loving, kind and generous. If you don't know them, please go by and get acquainted, you will be so happy you did.

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for all these wonderful presents. I am thrilled to have them and they constantly remind me of you and your generosity.

Hugs, Marty
