Winning Streak


I'm a bit embarrassed to 'fess up to how many blog giveaways
I've won the past couple of months.

I mean, seriously...I've made out like a bandit, a
nd this past week was no exception!

My latest win came courtesy of
my sweet and beautiful friend Kate of Salvage Dior.

I entered her thankfulness giveaway a couple of weeks back,
and look what arrived on my front door...



Firstly, this gorgeous burlap pillow, which was handmade
by one of the dealers at Kate's antique mall, Country Roads.

I don't know that I've ever shared
my gorgeous Carol Hicks Bolton couch with y'all! 
Bought from Mr. Tim Bolton himself
at the iconic Fredericksburg store, Homestead...



And Kate also tucked in a couple of these
fabulous glass candlesticks, complete with darling wine cork candles...




Thank you, Kate!
Having you as a friend is the best prize of all!

Off now to play in my booth for the afternoon!
Have a wonderful Memorial Day!

Hi Anne,
I love that pillow. It's different and I like the touch of rosettes with the ruggedness of the burlap and band. Lucky you.

The cork candles are too cute.

Happy Memorial Day.

I LOVE Homestead. I bought a bed from them 20 years ago. I loaned it to my sister when she first got married. She sold it in a garage sale and kept the money. MY HOMESTEAD BED!!!! I could have KILLED her.

Congratulations. I wanna win a burlap pillow. :)

sweetpea said...

Lucky you Anne. I never win anything and usually don't even enter. Love the couch and was trying to get a better look when you were kind enough to share a peek. I bought a huge wire aviary from Tim at a sale they had next door to Marburger last year. He's a nice guy. Caught a glimpse of Carol but I was too shy to approach her. Have fun booth fluffing.

Hugs,
Shelley
