Winner winner chicken dinner!

I'm always amazed when I read about bloggers that win one, two, and sometimes even three giveaways in a short period of time.  I am NOT one of those people.  I have entered my share of contests, giveaways, drawings, and raffles over the years.  I have never won.  Yes, I said NEVER.  Really.  In my 20's, I used to say that I never won the door prize raffles, but if you were with me, YOU would win.  It happened like 3 times where the people with me won a door prize and me...NADA.  So, you can imagine my surprise/delight/shock, when I actually saw my name as one of the winners of the most generous giveaway hosted by Kim of White Whispers to You.  She had this incredible lineup of gift certificates or products that you could choose from.  All of the vendors were awesome and so it was a tough call, but I love Tracey over at French Larkspur, so I chose a gift certificate and in short order, picked a pretty canvas bag which Tracey sent wrapped in her beautiful style.  Seriously, I almost hate to open the package because I would love just looking at the wrapping.

BUT, I did and this was inside...

I just love it.  I carried it a few times as a purse, but that seemed a bit too summery, so for now, it hangs in my entryway and I love looking at it.  So, I am now no longer an "also ran".  That's right...I'm a winner!  Thanks Kim and Tracey for changing my lot!  LOL!

Hope you all are having a good week and looking forward to a great weekend.  We finally got past our cold spell, so things are much nicer around these parts.

Until next time,
Pin It!
