A Couple of Giveaway Wins.....

Getting a package in the mail is soooo exciting especially when you have won some giveaways! The first one was from Dawn at Dawn's Daybreak. This was the first giveaway I have ever won and I was so excited.
Look at this beautiful tissue paper.......
I won her market bag that she knitted herself!!! Can you believe it DAWN MADE this!!! How talented is she!?!!
Also included was a little something extra.....some DAWN...how cute is that!!!?! Thank you so much Dawn and I just LOVE it and can't wait to use it.
Then a day or so later I won AGAIN....oh my gosh!!! This giveaway was from Diane from A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words. I couldn't believe my luck and couldn't wait to see what I won. My box came in the mail....as I said that is exciting itself......
Look at the fabulous goodies....I just know Diane picked them out especially for me. Seriously, they are just perfect. A magnolia scented candle...it truly smells heavenly, some Southern Comfort Praline Pecans, some adorable decorative towels with some sparkle on them (these will only be used in my decorating) and a fabulous iron birdie holder ( will hold candles, nests, and right now a pumpkin). It is hard to see the birdie holder but believe me it is CUTE!!
Here is another picture of it holding a big Fall leaf and a bling pumpkin. It is quite at home right now among my Fall decorations. We are still working on the pecans (they are very delicious and rich) and we have burned the candle a couple of times...love it! The little towels will come out in the Spring. Thank you so much Diane for these lovely gifts....I truly LOVE them.

Congrats on your wins! I love winning giveaways. Sometimes your items are just so personal, it shows that the person was thinking of you as he/she picked them up!

I have seen those pecans in the stores and wanted to try them, just wasn't sure how they would taste.

You're always a winner in my book Darlene!
Hey to answer your question on my blog-Yes, we had to close shop already-I'm hoping to find some time to maybe get some Christmas things in there. We will see. You are the FIRST to notice (or at least say something) and we closed shop like 5 days ago! (Thanks for noticing)

How exciting for you! I love me some pralines. Now, do you pronounce it "prayleen" or "prawleen?" : )

Bella Casa said...

Hi Darlene,

You have got some very pretty loot there, my friend!

I would be in awe of anything hand-made, I would probably just HOLD that bag and never use it, lol!

I love everything you got from Diane, too...I don't know if I have ever had pralines! I bet they are yummy though!

Congratulations on your beautiful wins, you deserve them :)
