I WON! I WON! I WON!
Can you tell how happy and excited I am.
I rarely win anything
to win a give away on a blog I love
is like the greatest for me.
I have to tell you this story.
A few weeks ago I entered the give away at
She was celebrating her 100th linky party.
Wow, 100 linky parties!
I love her linky parties as there is always so much inspiration there
the posts are all so beautiful.
So to celebrate her 100th Jann was having an awesome giveaway.
A vintage looking Recipe for Happiness sign that
she brought all the way back from St. George,
a set of very sweet vintage buttons, and a beautiful vintage hankie.
She was also including a vintage Pyrex bowl
a gift card to TJ Maxx or Homegoods!
I wanted to celebrate with Jann so I entered.
Then I totally forgot all about the giveaway
a few weeks later I was shocked when she
emailed me that I had won.
I couldn't believe it.....
What delight when the boxes came with all the wonderful goodies in them.
Some of which I have already put to use....
I have an area in our kitchen that has an old telephone jack on it that is an eyesore.
The wall is very narrow and a cabinet opens out on it
nothing very thick can be hung there to hide that jack.
I have been looking
found nothing appropriate for that area.
When the sign that Jann sent came I was so thrilled
it was perfect for this area.
Like it had been made especially to hang there.
I just added a piece of twine to go with the vintage feel of the sign
doesn't it look great there.
It covers that jack beautifully and fits in the space perfectly.
I love it!
This kitchen is hard to get pictures in without glares or shadows - no windows.
Anyway, I love how it was just perfect for this spot.
I haven't done anything with the other prizes
they will be put to good use.
Thank you so much Jann for all the great things - I love them all
when bike week is over I am on my way to Homegoods.... guar-an-teed.
If you get a chance stop by Jann's blog.
She would love for you to visit.
She has the sweetest blog
where she writes about her garden, crafts, decorating and her grandchildren.
if you get a chance be sure and stop by her party on Thursdays
You will absolutely love all the inspiration.
I'm sure she will love to show you her gardens
share a cup of tea with you...
