I hope I don’t get spoiled!

Well….to tell the truth, I love being spoiled! I’ve had so many fun things happen this week….starting with last weekend! While I was shopping with my blogger friends, my hubby bought me a gift!


He keeps better secrets than I do! He didn’t even TELL me! When I went to get my journal to write in it that night….


look what I found!


So I’ve been enjoying my Barnes and Noble Nook all week! I even checked a book out of the library! That’s one of my VERY favorite features! You KNOW how much I love my library! The first book I read was “The Bluest Eye” by Toni Morrison. It’s been years since I read it and I had forgotten how intense…and sad it is! I’m not sure I would recommend it! I’m going to choose a ‘lighter’ read next!


And I also got a couple of giveaway packages in the mail this week! That’s always SO exciting!

I received a Lollibag made by Prudence (Click HERE for her Etsy Store) from Koralee at blue bird notes ! Koralee has the sweetest blog and you’ll always feel happy visiting her!


And be sure to check the other bags in the Etsy store! Prudence makes the most unique and FUN bags! How could you not love a Lollibag ?! ♥


I was SO fortunate to win a giveaway from Metis Linens and this week I received these Vintage French linens!


They came with a beautiful card and a small bag of the most fragrant Lavender! Even the tissue paper smells wonderful! Here’s how they were described on Decor To Adore … “Our third giveaway is a wonderful set of various French vintage hand towels, napkins and damask fabric that can be used in a variety of ways.”


These are ALL things I will use and enjoy! I feel very blessed! Enjoy your weekend! Don’t forget to ENTER HERE for my CSN giveaway! HUGS to you all! ♥

I have a nook too! I love mine. But I didn't know you could check books out of the library on Nook! Really? I will have to figure that out!

What beautiful giveaways you have won...

Thank you so very much for the kind mention!
Today I am sewing some lovely linen sachets. A few of the pieces in your stash would work well for such a project.

Have fun!

I used to do Kindle on my PC and really enjoyed it but it takes a lot of space. We had a really great day. Your hubby sure is a sweetie.

Becca said...

What a sweet gift and surprise from hubby! Don't you just love a good surprise?!

Julie said...

Lucky you! I had been dead set against Kindle or Nook until the book reviewer, Cornflower in England, got one and listed some of the benefits (like an instant dictionary to look up a word). I do love "real" books but am now open to using both!

Blooming Rose Musings said...

I've had a lovely catch up on your recent posts. Fall has arrived in a spectacular way where you live! The view from your property is breathtaking.
Lucky you to receive such a great gift from your husband! I was happy to hear that our library, too, has ebooks to sign out. I'd be a frequent borrower!
