That would be me lately!

After a loooooong dry spell, I've actually won
THREE incredible blog giveaways in just the past month!
I've already received the first two prizes and the third is on the way,
so here's a peek at my recent windfalls...

First up, I returned home from Warrenton to discover
that I had actually won this stunning work of art...

Titled "Star Quality", this is an assemblage piece of art
created by the supremely talented Patricia Chapman of Assemblosity.
From her profile, Patricia "creates assemblage and collage art
using found objects and found images, text, and a large measure of humor.
I draw my subject matter from life, love, and other impossible situations."

You really owe it to yourself to visit Patricia's amazing BLOG,
her work is cutting-edge, one-of-a-kind, and for sale!

And next up...

Just look at what I scored from my dear, sweet friend LuLu Kellogg!

'Tis one of her highly coveted jewelry creations,
this most divine lampwork ring!

Stunning, eh?
Thank you my friend, to borrow a phrase from LuLu, I pink puffy heart this!

Not enough riches for one woman, you say?
I couldn't agree more!

Just look what's headed to me from Libbie at The Middlest Sister...

I know, I couldn't believe it either!
My very own, five year old Harajuku Girl!

Alas, sadly, Libbie isn't letting go of Annie, but instead will be
sending me the next best thing...
these wonderfully colorful journals and bowls from Target!

Whew, that's a lotta loot, right?

As long as I'm on a roll, I see a lottery ticket with my name on it
down at the convenience store!
Little Blue Farmhouse, here I come!

Happy Wednesday!

Thank you so much for your wonderful comment. It made my day especially when you have been to see my ultimate favorite blog so far....unprecedented beauty My Shabby Streamside Studio. That is what I dream about if I could do white, that will have to wait until the children have left the nest or when the shed is no longer needed as a shed. Have a wonderful day.
