It it a foggy, wet, chilly Fall day here in WA, but I am all warm and tingly inside, bursting with joy and excitement as I share the most wonderful news with you!!! I WON the most AMAZING GIVEAWAY!!! I still can't believe it!!! Even as I am typing this I STILL can't believe it!!! Now all of you are wondering what I am so excited about, right??? Well......Here is what I won!!!!!!

This beautiful hooked rug was made by the very talented lady, Joanne, from Snippets and Scraps of My Mind , and when she contacted me, I was literally speechless!!! You see, I had just stumbled onto her blog as I was meandering through blog land, as all of us do, and loved it! She was having a Giveaway as well and my first thought was not to comment, since I got on so late, but I just KNEW I had no chance to win and just left my comment and went on my merry way, never giving it a second thought!!

Imagine my surprise when I received a notice that I had a comment on my recent blog post from Joanne, telling me I might want to check her blog for some good news!!!!
My heart was doing flip flops as I went to her blog and saw how her two kitties had picked my name!!!!!! Oh, how I love those two amazing felines!!!!

Anyway, I have received so many sweet emails from this very generous lady and can not believe the blessing I am receiving!! If you have not stopped by for a visit yet, please do so as she has a wonderful blog and you will truly enjoy your time there!! I have hosted a Giveaway myself, and seen many others out there, and have always wondered what it would feel like to actually win one........and NOW I KNOW!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH JOANNE!!! I can't wait to receive your GORGEOUS RUG and want you to know that I will TREASURE it always!!

Wishing all of you a JOY-Filled Day!!
