Talented bloggers!

What beautiful things we see on our favorite blogs.

I was happy to receive some giveaway wins the past couple of weeks and want to share the links to these amazing ladies with all of you.

I won this pillow sham from Sweetwater Style .

I put it on my red sofa at first...

Doesn’t it look beautiful out here?

And this is where I spend most of my time. (and yes, it’s air conditioned just like the rest of the house! Air AND fans....it’s Florida!)

Thanks Mary! I love it!

I won a gift certificate to the Leslie Janson Etsy store HERE and got to pick out what I wanted.

I chose this beautiful necklace.

Congratulations on those pretty winnings! You've had a great streak of luck lately! I haven't been working much in my studio these days. I'm busy processing photos! I have some hemming jobs that are half done, so I need to get my behind in gear and get them done.

Vee said...

I'm losing it. I remember reading and thinking how cute and colorful your new pillow is and how unique your jewelry is, yet I wandered off. Guess I'm a little scattered this morning.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Love that pillow! It looks great with 'my' Flamingo pillow :) The necklace is lovely and I know how much you enjoy unique jewelry! Hugs, Linda

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

Della said...

I love the pillow sham, and it does look best in the lanai! Does she have an etsy shop? ....that pillow sham matches my living room perfectly!

Congrats on both your wins!

Mary-Sweetwater Style said...

Oh too funny....why? WHen you put "my" pillow on your red couch I noticed the red sunflower print pillow! Would you believe I used that same fabric to create a throw for my couch in the living room....guess great minds think alike! And I love your flamingo!

Sensible Sarah said...

Beautiful! Those colours are so vibrant and wonderful! That was so nice of Angie!
