Giveaway Wins and Christmas in July Swap!!

Hello Everyone,

Last month Tabitha at I Choose Bliss had a giveaway and I WON!! This is what I got:


Caress Daily Silk Body Wash

Avon Vanilla Body Lotion

Purple Love Bracelet

Pink Ribbon Bookmark with Strength written on it

Pink Heart Shaped Locket with a Sunflower Smiley Face

and a beautiful Fish fan with a little note from Tabitha.

Thanks Tabitha I love it all.

I also just won over at Rachel’s blog, Rambling Robinsons, a cookbook!!! My hubs said not another one. lol I collect cookbooks by the way. This is what I won:


I am so excited and can’t wait to get it. Thanks so much Rachel for having this great giveaway. I have won giveaways in the past but when I found out I won this one I was so excited I forgot to send Rachel my info. Rachel had to tweet me twice to remind me. lol Sorry Rachel.

I participated in Angie’s at Angie’s Spot Christmas in July swap!!


I had the best swap partner! Her name is Laufa – now what a cool name is that? Laufa’s blog is Morgan Madness. When I opened my box from Laufa I about had a heart attack. This is why:


“Mi Casa Ornament”




“Hug – A Boundless Love”

I LOVE WILLOW TREE!!! These pieces are already sitting next to my other pieces. They fit so perfectly with my collection. I had mentioned that I collected Willow Tree but NEVER expected that I would get anything from Willow Tree. Laufa thank you so much, you really don’t know how much I LOVE them!

I have a few more things I really need to blog about but not on this post. It is past my bed time!! Until next time

Have a blessed day!

How cool are those things?

I've never even heard of Willow Tree!

Laufa said...

I'm glad you liked the gifts, sorry they were not wrapped. I went to Hallmark and saw some that were way expensive. Hopefully you didn't have the ones I sent.
Congratulations on the other items that you won.
My sister is so jealous of the cookbook, she said I have to e-mail her the recipe for the collard greens. Thanks again!!
