Can’t Believe I Won! ♥

Thank you, Mary, over at Neat & Tidy! I entered  her 100th Post Giveaway a couple of weeks ago. I still can’t believe I am the recipient of these wonderful prizes that arrived on Friday. They are simply wonderful. I couldn’t have hand-picked anything better!

Check out Mary’s beautiful quilts and other lovely projects at her blog - Neat & Tidy. She created this gorgeous little tote in red and white. Her daughter Mandy made the adorable scrabble tile necklace and “Believe” block (thank you, Mandy!). Mary also tossed in a delicious(!) smoothie mix “Dove Java Chip Chocolate” – which I am enjoying right at this very moment. I am a huge fan of Dove chocolates and boy, is this smoothie ever good! As an added thoughtful touch, Mary had these prizes packaged in the most beautiful shipping bag I’ve ever seen.  Here’s the wonderful bounty I received ~

Thank you again, Mary! “Believe” will sit on my desk at work. The scrabble tile necklace is the perfect little summertime necklace, and I’m wearing it today! I promise you that tote bag will be proudly toted with me in my travels for many, many years.

I honestly don’t usually win anything, however this is the second blog giveaway I have won. Last Fall, before I began the Flat Creek Farm blog, I entered a contest over at JillyBean's. I won a nifty glass bottle wind chime made from heated and “bent” Cracker Barrel syrup bottles. So cute, although you really can’t see how pretty and colorful it is here.

I was very new to the world of blogging, which has proven to be a blessing in more ways than one! The best blessing of all has been meeting and making new blogging friends. I also love how the whole circle comes together, and we can learn from each other. Can’t wait until the first giveaway here…. I’m already starting to plot and plan ;-) Hope your Sunday is a blessed one.
