I'm a Winner!!

Last week during my craziness trying to get everything ready for Easter and weekend guests, I received an e-mail from Barb of Dogmom Diva. She told me I had won her recent giveaway. "Little ole me" won something. I have entered several giveaways since I became involved in this blog world thing, but this is the first win for me. I don't enter every one I come across, but this one just had my name written all over it.
Beautiful eye shadow and lip gloss for Mary Kay.  I love Mary Kay. I have used her products for years (since 1973). Wow, that really dates me, doesn't it?  I even sold it for years. The necklace and earrings are hand made by Karen @ Funky Chunky Jewelry. It is black and pink stone necklace with heart enhancer and earings to match. It is something I would wear (my granddaughters will love it) and I already have an outfit to wear it with.
I heard from UPS today that it has been shipped and is on it's way. I am so excited to get it. Thank you  Barb for a great giveaway just designed for me to win.
It would mean a lot to me if any of you would click on Barbs name and go say hello and thanks for me.
She is a really sweet lady and new blog friend.

Something that I did not expect when I started my blog  was that  I would meet so many kind and generous women that have so much in common.  I have been enriched by getting to know all of you.  I have learned new things and laughed at your stories and cried with some of you.
Thank you all for being a part of my life.
This crazy thing called blogging also brought me back to a friendship and my love of sewing that I had sadly neglected for way too long. YOU know who you are and you started me on this ride and I thank you for that.

Congratulations on winning the giveaway!
I agree with you that blogging has opened the door to meeting so many women with the same interests. The friends I have here in KC don't have the same vintage, thrifting, crafting bug that I have so my blogger friends have become such a wonderful sounding board for my projects. Blogging has become a very rewarding experience.

Well congratulations on your win! Just did a little catching up and looks like you had a wonderful Easter. Your yard looks amazing, but those beautiful grandchildren of yours get top billing ~jermaine~

Congratulations on the win. I loved the Easter post. The dresses looked so cute on the girls, and I loved the photo of the whole family! You have a beautiful yard too. You're right about blogging, it's been a blessing for me too.

Now you can't say you have never won anything....ha. Blogging is one of the many adventures we have gone through in our friendship. I have been blessed because of you and you deserve this prize. Congratulations.
