It Has Arrived!

This morning as I was about to leave the house their was a package at my front door. It was my giveaway prize from Sandi at www.sandimyyellowdoor.blogspot.com. I of course excitedly ran back in to open it. So what if I was late for work! I have my priorities. Inside I found a lovely copy of Anne of Green Gables (one of my all time favorites!) A tin box with a pretty pic of Anne's house and her. A package of napkins called Anne on the quilt.(To pretty to ever use!) A piece of Heritage lace with a darling little pic of a watering can and birdhouse with the phrase "Whatsoever things are lovely, think on these thing." There was also a Prince Edward Island notepad. A lovely card enclosed from Sandi and my favorite thing was the sand and shells from the island! I know try not to be jealous. Sandi thank you so much! I love everything and will truly treasure it. My hubby still doesn't understand this whole blog giveaway thing. He swears there must be a catch. Men are so untrusting! We blogland gals are just a generous and sweet group.

  11. What a wonderful package!
    I remember my sister giving me a copy of "Anne of Green Gables." I don't remember much about the book, except there was something about puffed sleeves, right? Did she like them, or not? Wow, it's been a loooong time (I'm 53, btw) since I read that!

  12. Congratulations Traci. I just stopped over from Rachel's blog. I love your porch and the way you decorate ~ lovely.
