The lost or stolen giveaway :(



See all these AWESOME gifts...I won this from Suzanne at Colorado Lady giveaway in July.. Apron, linens, candle, 1 year to Country Living, awesome pitcher an more..........well...


here is the SAD story....


She put the package outside of the front door for the mailman to pick up...she isn't sure if it was picked up by the mailman or taken/stolen from her front step. She doesn't have any replacements...NO Treasures for Deb :(


We are both hoping that the package may show up... it's pretty doubtful...at least I can look at the photo...



I just had to share this pitiful story...I'm feeling so sorry for my little self...

Deb...Party of One!!!!

I'm going to curl up next to you and make it a Party of Two...
What a shame about the package of goodies... I think I shall mourn the loss of the embroidered pieces the most for you...
In the meantime, I'll say a prayer and cross my fingers 'n toes that you'll soon find your winnings at your door...

When you least expect it, that box is going to show up on your doorstep, probably battered a bit, but everything still intact. It's happened to me, both sending stuff and receiving stuff. No shipping service (USPS, UPS, FedEx) is perfect but they usually get things where they're going. Let us know if and when the box arrives!

Oh my, I hope it isn't so. Maybe it got lost in the mail and will show up late.

Linda said...

Oh this is too sad. Sometimes the mail is kind of slow...hopefully this sweet gifts will find there way to you...hugs, Linda

I truly hope that the package has been way-laid somewhere between CO and you. I hate to think that someone took it from the porch, so we're going to hope that the box is lost & searching for it's way to you. Labels get lost, packages get beaten... but don't give up. Tip for folks shipping stuff...my Mom used to be a rural mail carrier in Massachusetts years ago, and one tip she gave me was to put a second label with To & From info inside the package. That way, even if the box gets damaged, they can still figure out where to send the remains. :o} *elaine*

Ok that really sucks, I am so sorry about that, I sure hope it turns up maybe it is in limbo. Sure looked like a wonderful package of goodness.
Hugs, Diane

What a bummer! I do hope your special package shows up after all. I am sure you will let us know when it does.

Dogwood said...

I have faith it will show up some day on you front door. It is amazing how long some packages take to be delivered. So, I will stay positive for you. Those are such lovely treasures. I really want you to have them.

And, regarding my ACT swap cards for September. Yes, I have finished them and have them ready to mail next week.

Have a nice evening. Dogwood

Big Hugs and how sad..I sure hope it shows up. And if it was taken from her porch it will come back on them someday. We will all keep our fingers and toes crossed that it gets to you shortly.

Hugs Pam

The Queen of Clearance said...

that is horrible! I hope it shows up. Maybe the mail is just being terrible?

goldenbird said...

Oh Deb, that's awful. What is going on with the mail these days? That birthday card you sent me was sliced open. How very sad. I hope it does show up. If not, I think you should go out and buy yourself a few treasures to make up for it :o)

Holly said...

Aw, so sorry, Deb! I don't think I'd look at the picture. It would be like rubbing salt in the wound! :( But, hopefully the box is hung up somewhere and will turn up after all! ♥

My Vintage Studio said...

Hi Deb. Sorry to read about your lost package. This has happened to me with a blog give away of mine...not fun.

Hope your garage sale went well!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

This is such a shame. Hopefully it will turn up.

That just makes me sad and a bit disappointed in people. What kind of senseless person does that? Perhaps it will show up and we can all thank the USPS system for saving the day!

Joan@anythinggoeshere said...

It is so sad. It someone stole it, I'm sure they don't appreciate it as much as you would. Make that a party of 3!

Coloradolady said...

Deb, I am sorry this is the post you felt you had to put up. I feel so bad about the boxes not making it. I have never had such a mess.

I take great pride in my giveaways, and enjoy putting them together so very much. It is the thrill of giving something and making someone's day that holds the happiness for me.

I guess if they were taken, someone must have thought they were getting something valuable...not just some treasures for girls who love vintage things....the thought of these things being tossed away without a care breaks my heart.

I hope the box shows up here or there, and restore my faith in mankind.....it has been a real ordeal...for me especially.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

That really is pitiful! What a disappointment for both of you! People can be SO rude and greedy! I'm sure nice things will come your way though!

Protector of Vintage said...

The items sure look lovely. I hope the package shows-up!!

Terra said...

Maybe the package will show up; those are all treasures. Sometimes you hear of things showing up in the mail mysteriously long after mailing.
The pitcher and embroidered items are so pretty, I hope the package appears on your doorstep.

KatCollects said...

Hi Deb,
You never know, it may still show up. I had a package show up once after being missing for over a month. I also won a giveaway once where the lady just didn't send the prizes, ever, and admitted she didn't. I feel bad for you both, have faith!
Hugs,
Kathy

Barb said...

blessings and hugs,

That just wants to make me cry for you!! I know you were so looking forward to those gifts as I would if I were in your shoes. I do pray that they turn up eventually!!

My husband "lost" an RC airplane that he had a lot of money in. First time he flew it here he lost it over the woods. Looked for days and days and finally gave up. THREE MONTHS later someone was driving by our house and hubby just happened to be flying another plane. They stopped and wanted to know if he had lost one a few months ago. Long story short is that they live around the corner and 1/2 mile or so up the road and they found it all intact ...just like new. They were out fourwheeling in the woods and right there in the path was his plane. They had asked around and no one seemed to know whose it was so they just kept it in their barn. And it was in a totally different direction than hubby thought it was. So never give up hope..I pray that it will turn up eventually!
Hugs~
