First, right off the top I want to tell you that I joined Lisa's One World One Heart party ONLY for the new blogs that I would be able to meet. I wrote a note to alot of the participants just to be kind. I honestly never thought I would be able to win anything. I loved some of the giveaways and would love to have had my name drawn but my honest thought was to support all of the wonderful blogs.
Well, I was shocked, surprised and pleased to receive notice that my name had been drawn by the number generators from around the world not once but several times.
In all humility I want to give credit where credit is due therefore I want to post some of the gifts that have arrived to show you what sweet ladies there are in this wonderful world of BLOG!
to stop once again and thank
Lisa for OWOH.
I have received wondeful items from other blogs that had also signed up to go on
The Magic Carpet Ride.
None of the gifts are any more appreciated than another.
What does one say when they receive gifts?
That seems so inadequate, so insignificant.
I think we should somehow, in our language
and in our world, be able to express appreciation better than a simple
But for lack of a better vocabulary, all I can truly say is
A Heart Felt,Thank You!
The very first gift arrived from Jill of Bailiwick Designs
When this lovely package came, all tied up in a gorgeous pink ribbon my husband just could not get over how pretty it looked. His statement: "It is too pretty to open!" That was my sentiment also. I did, however open the box to find heart candies, heart cookie cutters, a bright red carved stone heart, to lovely smelling pinky ball, a handmade stuffed heart, word cards of love in French, and last but not the least another tin heart filled with hearts. Now how sweet is that???
Thank you, Jill so much!
My hubby actually remembered that it was Valentines Day and got me a dozen yellow roses!
(First time ever!!)
Penny sent me this gorgeous journal.
It is so detailed that it is hard to see how delightful it really is.
The rose is made of a Swiss dotted paper that is beautiful. Then it is tied up with a dark green and gold ribbon. I wish you could see the elegance of this piece of artwork.
Everything she does is so classy!!
Penny, I am so glad I found your blog through
OWOH Magic Carpet Ride.
Miss Shari of
sent this lovely story/sticker book and darling puppy dog so I can read it to my precious Grandchildren! (I do not have anything around the house, until now, that is age appropriate
for a seven, six and five year olds.) The colors and the story are too wonderful!
Thank you so much, Shari!!!
made this darling hair clip into a lollie pop!
Isn't it darling? Guess who will wear this cutie?
Chelsea calls it a "Rosie Clip" but whatever you call it it is SO sweet!
Thank you, sweet Chelsea so much!
(I KNOW this is ridiculous but I MUST show them all and not leave anyone out!
My mail lady is going nuts just hauling in all the packages...lol)
makes the most gorgeous beaded jewelry!
You MUST stop in there! I am talking about one talented lady here. She not only made these darling polymer clay ear rings for me but drew the lady on the ear ring card too. Plus made a card to send along with the gift.
Kate, thank you for the earrings and for the detailed beauty they behold.
