Overdue Thanks

I swear, I'm the most ungrateful blogger around!
Wait, strike that.
Make that the most overwhelmed blogger around!

Not to say that my life is any busier
or crazier than anyone elses,
just that I seem to be less equipped
to handle the madness these days.

I've acquired an embarrassment of riches from some
of my wonderful bloggy friends the past couple of months,
and so today I am FINALLY giving thanks where thanks are due!

First up, I was fortunate enough to win Angela's amazing
Mermaid's Dowry giveaway over at Filigree Moon...

I was lucky enough to meet the lovely Angela
in person this past weekend at Paper Cowgirl,
and she's just as sweet and lovely as she is talented!

Next up, the wonderful Patricia of Vintage Linen Treasures
sent me some pretties to say thank you for posting
about her giveaway! Just look what she sent me...

Next up, my photography inspiration Denise at My Vintage Gardens
sent me a big package of some of her beautiful images
on cardboard. Suitable for framing, really!


Deb at Garage Sale Gal was thoughtful enough
to send me this darling vintage hanky as thanks for winning my book giveaway...

And my most recent win came just this week from Doni at Faith, Grace and Crafts...

Just look at all that loot to add to my mixed media/craftin' stash!!!
There was so much I couldn't even fit it all in the frame!

I'm off to help The Mr. do some grilling,
so I hope all of you are enjoying your Fourth,
and your independence. Don't ever forget or take that for granted.

Love to All,

Hmm, have you sorted out yet which room in the new house is going to be your craft room? Because with all these gorgeous new goodies, you will definitely need a BIG room to store everything in, lol. You have been a very lucky girl to win all those fabulous treasures.

Hello Fiona...I have enjoyed following your blog! New to all this but thoroughly enjoy it! Congrats on the new old house...not sure what happened to the 1st one, but remember their is always a reason that doors close, we may not know why or understand but God does! There is always a reason for everything. Have a great time on your vacation! Debbie
