My "Giveaway" Wins #1

As I talked about last week, all of a sudden packages started showing up at my home, for me! I was a bit confused, but eventually figured out that Karen from Some Days are Diamonds had figured out a way to have "my own private giveaway win"! You see, I cannot seem to win a giveaway....I always sign up and then congratulate whoever is going to win...cuz, it just won't be me.....Stinker Karen figured she had heard enough of that....so, she arranged for a few of my blogger friends to send me a giveaway win. What fun!
I am starting today with just a few of the items and will finish later this week.

This darling Fall box from Charlotte. Charlotte was one of my very first blogging pals almost 2 years ago....

it was filled with wonderful goodies from the Popcorn Factory. Uh, what I got to taste was delicious...but my husband really believed this was his private giveaway.

Marty sent me this darling Christmas stocking she made. The colors are gorgeous and I love the little tassels. Marty and I have been able to talk in person and that is so much fun....we live fairly close to one another.

those darling tassels!

Connie sent me this darling apron. I can't wait to surprise my grandkids with this one...you see they have aprons here to bake cookies with grandma...but I didn't have an apron!

I have some more lovely gifts to show...coming soon. Right now though I am back to the doctor's office for MORE blood work. Appropriate that it is so close to Halloween....he must be Dracula!!!

Aw, it's because we all love you Ceekay. :) And yes, that Karen is a sweetie. I think the Lord had this all planned out. It was meant to be for Karen to win so many giveaways because she had said that she was forwarding them to you. :) I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Blessings,
Sandra
