Thank You Times Three

Guess what arrived in the mail yesterday?




You would be right if you guessed "Vintage by Nina"! I won this in the giveaway at the beautiful "Burlap Luxe" Blog!  A million thank you's Dore!




I absolutely love it.  And it's autographed to boot!  ~sigh



Page after page of eye candy...



Inspiration...



and ideas for every room...


Vignettes to drool over...




and every shade of white and cream in the universe!  Oooh...I'm a happy girl!  
Thanks again Dore!



Then I came home from work  today to find a special delivery from a precious friend!
This beautiful bouquet of fresh hydrangeas...


a pretty journal to record thoughts, prayers, and dreams....



and "tissue to go", because she knows that in this season of my life, 
"Tears are sometimes words the heart cannot say".  Thank you Erin! I love you.


And last but certainly not least,  I popped over to Common Ground Blog this evening to see who the winners were in Debra's giveaway for the much anticipated new Carolyn Westbrook  book "Through the French Doors".  Imagine my sheer delight to find that I was one of the lucky blessed winners!
Thank you Debra!!
What a fantastic couple of days for sure!  So again...thank you times three to
Dore
Erin
& Debra!

Man girl, you are on a roll! Congrats on all the wins. I was tickled to find out I was one of Debra's blessed winners too. Thanks for your comments on my last post. Things are settling down now. All of my friends still have their homes and the community came together so beautifully to support the victims of the fire and the firefighters as well...it was truly heartwarming in the aftermath of such a tragedy. 347 lost their homes but the attitudes seem to be very positive and optimistic for rebuilding and getting back to normalcy. We finally had a break from the heat and some rain and last I heard, the fire was 98% contained. God is good and our community will heal. Thank you for your prayers and positive energy.

Hugs,
Judy

I came back... Like I said before you need to buy a lottery ticket looks like you have a winning streak going on! I love looking through my books for inspiration. This weekend I was running out to pick-up a couple breakfast sandwiches and stopped at a local Sale, bought myself some already read magazines, for 25 cents a piece. Hugs, Diane
