Another Amazing Giveaway Win!!


I honestly NEVER win anything, but in the past several weeks I have won 2 Giveaways!!! Someone I know mentioned that this might be a good time for me to consider buying some lottery tickets!!!

The Giveaway I just won was hosted by Catherine Mahone of THE PRIMITIVE HEART!! She is a very talented folk artist who has wonderful patterns (I have most of them and LOVE them all) and a lovely blog and if you have not visited her, I would encourage you to do so!! I know she would love for you to stop by and say "Hi"!!

The package arrived yesterday while I was at work, so I did not know it was there till I got home!!! She had everything wrapped so nicely and the anticipation was building as I opened each piece!! What treasures awaited me!!! The first was a flicker light, that looks like a flame when you turn on your lamp. It gives off a warm orange glow...perfect for this time of year! Love it!! The next one was a small hanging pumpkin by Bethany Lowe, with the tiniest little blinking light to go inside! I have not seen one of these before.....so cute!!!!

Then all these wonderful coffees.....pumpkin spice, maple, caramel apple, autumn spice, and apple cobbler ! They are made by a family owned company called DOOR COUNTY Gourmet Coffee! I'm sure Catherine would be happy to tell you about them if you are interested!!

The next package was a darling coffee pot shaped lamp with a pierced tin shade....THAT was what the flicker bulb was for!!! It is really adorable and ended up on some stacked boxes on my mantel. I have a very small kitchen and the 2 places where I wanted to put it had NO outlets, but I love where it found a home!! The final item was one of her handmade pincushions, made from yummy smelling wax, orange and black cheesecloth, and filled with rusty pins and a wax pumpkin pin on the top!! I LOVE pincushions of all kinds and am so happy to add one of her HANDMADE ones to my collection!! Thank you so much Catherine for this special handmade creation, as well as for all the other gifts....all so lovely and know I will treasure each one!!

I wish each of you sunny Autumn days, filled with Special Blessings!

With a Grateful Heart~

Congrats on your give~away wins :)
You are so lucky to have won Joanne's rug. (I really was hoping I'd win it...lol, but it looks like you've given it a very good home.) She is an amazing hooker.
You are welcome to stop on by my blog anytime. I'd love to have you visit. I'm a hooker, too (but NOTHING like Joanne).
Pug hugs :)

Hey Lauren~
Thank you for stopping by, for your kind comments and for following!! I think so many people were hoping to win too and I certainly don't blame them....just never imagined I would win it!
Would love to have you and Joanne teach me as that is one thing I have never attempted to learn, but hope to!!
I will stop in for a visit soon!! I just LOVE your name....Rugs and Pugs!!
Blessings~
