First of all, I just want to say thanks to everyone who reads and posts on this blog. I know my posts have been few and far between, but I have just been so busy with life. However, I miss doing regular posts and am working on at least one, so stay tuned.

Secondly, I am so honored to "know" so many of you through your blogs, some of you I have even forged friendships with outside of the blog world. But I am especially honored today to have received the giveaway package from Ness at Marley & Lockyer. Let me just say I do not ever win anything. Ever. If my Mom was the one doing the giveaway I wouldn't win. I don't win prizes at baby showers, I don't ever win anything. But this time I won. Look at the adorable package I received, sent all the way from Tasmania, Australia at great personal expense of Ness!!!

Is it not adorable? I love the little floral paper wrap on top of the brown packing paper. So chic.
When I opened it up, I was so happy to see the contents:
{don't know why that is posting sideways... hmmm}

And a close up of the little floursack pillow. Darling.

I am busy figuring out where I am going to put my new gifts, and beaming that someone in Australia didn't put my name back into the hat and pull out someone a little more local to send the giveaway items to. I'm just floored that I received such a thoughtful, generous gift from a blogging friend.

Merci Beaucoup!

p.s. Tomorrow a little town near me is having a city-wide "trash to treasure" yard sale. I'll be there with my running shoes on tomorrow and hopefully will have a fun post about the treasures I find. Stay tuned.

Thank YOU for letting me get to know you through your blog. You are so talented, and interesting!

I'm new at your blog (just recently found you) but I love your posts on furniture you repaint, especially.

Have fun at the yard sale, lucky!

PS- What a wonderful package! How sweet!

I am so glad that you love them and I am even more happy to see they got to you in one piece! I often wonder what they look like after going all the way to the I know!
Thanks for the post too. Enjoy,
