Finds, Treasures from a Giveaway

The leaves are turning....my favorite time of the year :)
Kimberly at ArtJoyStuff (http://artjoystuff.blogspot.com/) recently had a AWESOME giveaway that involved giving away 50 goodies...for her 50th birthday. AND...my name was picked...totally shocked!!! Look at the wonderful basket that she made and inside were 50 (more than) goodies...


Goodies upon goodies, treasures upon treasures...


She made the little chair into a pin cushion...too cute :) and I'm leaving some of the little things in their bags to open when I need a little "happiness" in my day...


This little fairy in the tea cup which is in BLUE, is sweetly sitting on my shelf :) I feel that it was more my birthday than Kimberly's...THANK YOU KIMBERLY!!!! It was a wonderful giveaway and you are so talented!! I am blessed and very thankful!
Be sure to visit her blog! She is making some Halloween goodies!





Just some finds from last week...




These goodies are from the Junk Bonanza...even the sweet little "boo" pumpkins...aww




Garage sale finds and I think finds from an estate sale...I forget! It's been a week ago and this week was a little crazy!!!
Daughter is home and resting...yesterday I worked at HQ and it started out S L O W and then picked up :) Stopped in today to drop off more goodies and it was busy!!!
THANK YOU, again for your prayers :)
Now I'll be getting the house ready for the girlfriend weekend..and my room at HQ needs to be done a week earlier...I'll sure try to visit you gals...may not post as often as I would like too...
HAPPY FALL !!!
Warmly,
deb :)

Kim said...

Eeeeks. What a fabulous giveaway you've won Deb. You must be just tickled pink over that basket of goodies. How do you manage to find such great things at the estate and garage sales? I love that tiered basket stand. What a great piece. Are you going to keep that for yourself or will you be selling it at HQ?

Glad to hear your daughter is on the mend! The sale wounds like it is going well. I know you have been so busy, did you read my note that I have an "A" hanky, do you need it? Thank you for the BD wishes on Facebook. I knew you had a girls weekend coming up, but did not know it was at your house YIKKES!

Hi Deb,
So glad to hear of your sweet girl's recovery...I know that was a terribly scary ordeal. What a week you've had. As usual, I love to "shop" the photos of your finds and see what I would have bought, which is just about everything! LOL! You do get the coolest stuff! And what a great giveaway...piles and piles of goodies that look like they were custom picked for you!

Can't wait to see your upcoming projects as you prepare for your girlfriend fun...be sure and get some rest too in the midst of all this...you've had a LOT going on!

Have a lovely week dearest!

Hugs & Blessings,
Becky
