Thanks Kate!!!!!!

Can I show you the goodies that arrived in the mail today?  I won a wonderful give-away from the fabulous Kate at The Garden Bell.  It is the very first time I have ever won a give-away, and I am just so thrilled.

Kate has a fantastic blog.  She lives in the Chicago area and visits close to me in Florida every year.  The Garden Bell is a very special place to visit.  The music is fantastic, the stories are superb and well the crochet is amazing.

Do you want to see?  Come on I'll show you.
 Here we go.  I am so excited I can hardly control myself.
 Look at all these lovely gift items.  Spooky shortbread cookies, Pumpkin Bread mix, yum, I can almost smell it cooking right now, Herbs de Provence Seasoning, Orange Sapphire fragrance mist, and a lovely phone holder, and pasta.  But wait there is more......
 A beautiful crochet pillow.  You can not even imagine how beautiful and soft it is.  The colors are perfect.  One side looks like this.
 And the other looks like this!
 Look at the detail on the edging, wow!  Kate you are a master of crochet and I am just so honored to have this amazing pillow.  I still consider myself a crochet novice, and based on this pillow I have a lot to learn.  Kate, again I want to thank you for your wonderful give-away.
You made my day!

You deserve this, sister! How nice to win something from wonderful Kate! I must admit to a bit of jealousy - that pillow would look lovely in my home.

God knows, we need a little treat now and then! Enjoy everything.

I LOVE that pillow! I was ogling one on her blog header (I think it might be that one or one just like it)...verrrry pretty! How fun for you to win! That's how I felt when I found out I was a winner over at Bunny Mummy's blog! I never win either! I guess that makes it EVEN MORE special! You've had so much going on lately...I'm glad this joy was bestowed upon you! And the pumpkin bread...my fave! I fix it year round...I'm a cheater! Hugs, Annette
