And, the Winner is . . . ME!!


Won another giveaway.

That’s what happens when you enter them all.

This time it was our own dear Creative Carmelina!!

She of the Pink Lacey Ladies – a memorable September post of mine!!

What a lovely October prize to be had this time from Carmelina!!

She does these “Flash Give-Aways” where one day, as strikes her fancy, she photographs a little hand-made treasure and posts it up as a prize that day – one day only – winner determined from the comments received.  Here’s the thing – you can comment as many times as you’d like! 

Well, for a Chatty Kathy like me, that’s a good thing.  Because, I can always come up with comment on one topic or another.

And, I did – unnumbered times.

Still don’t know how many times I posted a comment rambling on about some random silliness.  It just got to be fun and I was enjoying myself.  Not surprising then, that my name was easily pulled with so many chances in the pot!

Promise!  I won’t hog the pot again.

So, if you’ve at all paid any attention to the above posted photos of Carmelina’s artistic brilliance that is decidedly in my possession – to my unbounded delight – complemented with just the right paper background from my collection – you will note (poorly lit as the photo below is) what a perfect addition her work is on the wall in my own office/studio – where inspiration happens!

Because – if inspiration doesn’t happen,
I’m a writer without reverie,
And, a blog without a post!

LOVE every inch of this lovely fabric postcard!!

And, a sweet pouch of inspiration holding precious buttons and ribbon roses! 

And, vintage bicycle and bow – where will my imagination go . . . now?!

Thanks, Carmelina!!!!  Bless you in all good things and beauty!!

Sharing today with Trish’s Simple Joys at Lily-Rose Cottage.
