How To Have A Very Good Day!
The mailman came this morning and brought me a fabulous package! Don't you just love getting this kind of mail? I couldn't wait to open it because I knew what was in it. I won the Toile and Rooster Giveaway from The Pleasures of Homemaking and all wrapped up in pretty tissue and bows were some lovely treasures!
I received :
some very beautiful hard to find yellow toile material. (I already have plans for it- upcoming post)
black and red toile tissue paper packs
8 toile paper plates
8 toile matching napkins
6 rooster coasters ( I'm thinking of a project for these!)
a darling rooster plaque with "Bless This House And All Who Enter"
I wonder how Manuela knew I am a toile lover , a yellow lover and a rooster lover! A Giveaway tailor made for me! Thank you Manuela. You are very generous.
Manuela has such a lovely blog filled with all things home and garden. Recently, she has taken us into her garden to make the most adorable silverware plant stakes, gone thrifting and taught us how to make our own cleaning products! If that wern't enough, she is having another giveaway!
This month Manuela is giving away a gorgeous book, COMING HOME A SEASONAL GUIDE TO CREATING FAMILY TRADITIONS by Rosanna Bowels. This book looks coffee table worthy.
Please run over to vistit The Pleasures of Homemaking and enter for a chance to win.
Another fun thing happend to me. Well, to me and some other very talented bloggers. Beverly, from How Sweet The Sound was featured in this quarters edition of Artful Blogging. The magazine did a lovely feature on Pink Saturday. Pink Saturday is a fun and social meme Beverly has hosted for several years. It's all about PINK attitude. Congratulations, Beverly! You are the pinkest! To see what all the buzz is about visit How Sweet The Sound and say Hi to our famous Beverly.
I ran out yesterday and bought a copy of Artful Blogging and there I was! I decided to wait to savor it with coffee and fruit this morning!
Right there on page 40 was my little picture of WHITE TEA AND HOT PINK ROSES. Click HERE to see original post.
And on page 41 was the photo credit, along with the credits from the photos of other very, very talented bloggers!
That was all very exciting, but it is the gratitude that I feel that really makes my day! What makes this a very good day is the reminder to stop and count my blessings! I am so thankful for all the wonderful people that visit, comment, and support my blog. I feel so grateful for the way this communtiy has embraced me and let my voice be heard. It is meeting generous and caring people like Mauela and Beverly that go out of their way to make my days brighter! Thank you, dear ones! I am very very blessed!
