Sweet Fun Things!

Hello there! I finally found my battery charger for my camera and can now get on with my posts. I had a little fun making this up and you can create one for yourself by going to Flickr. Watch out, it is addicting!

Several weeks ago I was blessed to be the lucky winner of Dena's giveaway. Below is the abundance of goodies that she sent to me. The gardenia candle makes our home smell wonderful and the adorable sampler will sure to find a spot amongst the others I collect. Thank you so much, Dena! I love everything!!

And because I love anything "cute" and "kitsch," I just had to buy this wonderful piece made by Karen. She comes up with the cutest ideas and this is for storing those plastic bags ya get from the store. Go green! ~~ Karen's goodies arrive in a sweet handmade box with pretty trims, too.
This will be for my kitchen, but thought I'd snap a pic against the white hutch. Oh, and look what is on top of the white hutch~~the sampler from Dena!!! It sits on an old child's chair that I got for $1 at a garage sale. ;)

But wait, there is more! You know how one blog leads you to another? Well, I discovered this pretty bird tassel made by Susie Harris. The colors of the ribbon are the colors in our master bathroom. Once it is done being remodeled, the little birdie will end up there. Susie also included some sweet handmade tags that I will be adding to a little project.
Dear friends, it is nearly a year since I created my blog, so stay tuned for a little celebration with a giveaway. July 23 is just around the corner.....

~~~~~~ Here's a bouquet of smiles for you today and thank you for your visit!~~~~~~

So glad you found your charger too. Your blog always brings a bit of fun to my day, as I always love your little treasures. What a great idea for those bags that continually fall out of where ever you keep them, and the bird tassel is too cute. You have a fabulous Tuesday. Jean in Virginia

I would like a subscription to that magazine please ;-) I know every page would just be oozing with cottage charm and of course SCOTTIES.

What a wonderful prize from Dena. It fits your home perfectly. Using the child's chair for an easel--another brilliant Becky idea!!!

I love the bag holder and the tassel. I may have to go shopping! They are both wonderful creations. Yeah handmade!

Have a super day.
Hugs to you my friend,
