lucky maryjane, thankful me

Thank you so much to everyone who entered my giveaway!

Using, Maryjane of The Beehive Cottage's number was selected as the winner. I am so excited because sweet Maryjane is my "fairy blogmother," a little name I bestowed upon her for all of the dear kindness and encouragement she has shown me since our first "meeting."

Our blogging friendships are so remarkable. Debi of Life in my Studio, has me bewildered over the remarkably thoughtful surprise gifts I just received from her. Debi not only sent me the above goodies from Cath Kidston but she filled each vessel with artful treats. That Debi!

My husband jokes "you're all crazy!" and maybe we are but in the best possible kind of way!

Okay, I've got gingerbread "cottages" to assemble and gifts to pack! I also have a post I'd like to write later. Cards to sign. I'd better get the coffee going ...

Love the Cath Kidston you received as a sweet...

I agree with you that people, especially our families it seems, may think we are a bit off our rocker to have friendships with our blogland friends. However, just as you have, I have met some of the most charming, kind ladies through this medium. The favorite part of my day is when I take a break and do a little blog visiting...

Oh my goodness Elyse! I am so excited I am your winner for your sweet giveaway! You know I think your tinkered treasure are the best EV~ER! THANK YOU so very much! Screaming....xox :)

I am so proud of you for the "pushing" forward you are doing at this time. The passing of a parent is a hard one at anytime but especially this time of the year when memories are so strong. You are a angel Elyse and I know your Mother is proud of you.

Have fun wrapping, writing, baking and sipping! Thinking of you!

I love you dear,
Your Fairy BLOGmother,

Sadly our CK store is going out of business here. I guess it just didn't go over well with the natives. :/ My husband doesn't think anything much about the blogging, but my kids are always teasing me. They they blogging is lame, Facebook is cool. I just don't have any interest in Facebook. Blogging is personal and creative and I like that aspect of it. Isn't it wonderful that you have a little giveaway and receive wonderful gifts in return. Enjoy! Happy weekend wishes to you. Tammy
