*My Happy List*

I have been so blessed to receive gifts and win giveaways this past couple of months.

I’m sorry I’m so late saying thank you in a post. It’s a good thing I write everything down in a journal. I had to go back to August!

I’ll start with an Etsy purchase from Fanciful Stitches.


Aren’t her tags adorable? And I really wanted some baker’s twine!

Daphne from Ivy, Phyllis and Me sent me a gift all the way from England! She and I have been pen pals for awhile now and she is the sweetest friend.


She knows I love boats and water scenes and beautiful lace hankies. This exquisite handkerchief is edged in Nottingham lace. Thank you dear Daphne!


My girlfriend Marfi from Incipient Wings had a giveaway and then she decided to send everyone a handmade gift! How sweet is that? Be sure to visit her this month to enjoy all of her Halloween happenings. She’s sharing stories and fun craft ideas.


Thanks sweet Marfi for my Mushroom ornie!

Another fun giveaway win was these sweet watermelon magnets from Barb at Barb’s Heartstrokes.


I have them on my fridge to hold up postcards! Thank you!

And Mildred from Blackberry Lane and I sent each other cards. Mine had a tea bag and Halloween stickers! Thanks Mildred! (the tea was delicious!)


I know this sounds like I win a lot but remember this is over the last few months! I treasure the friendships I’ve made with these blog buddies the most and I know how blessed I am!

I even have two more to save for my next happy list!

Are you having a happy day?

Lucky you, lots of lovely items in the mail. I love Daphne's blog but can no longer comment there as she only allows G+, which I don't have. No other options show at all. :(

Donna said...

You certainly have great luck when it comes to giveaways! Enjoy your loot, LOL!

What great prizes. I hope I too can do a list like this soon. I have won a lot of great books which I have highlighted and I won a $10 amazon card for a book review drawing. Hope my commenting on your blog magically send some of your luck my way. I am having a happy day because you dropped by my blog today Thanks.

I am really behind in blogging. Company. I love the pumpkins. They turned out really cute, along with your other halloween decorations. Yes, I am scared. Good job. It is nice to receive little gifts in the mail and to have a network of sweet, kind friends. Happy fall. You look ready.

Good Morning Diane, Oh, I am so pleased you liked your handkerchief, I knew you would, as I know how much you love old lace.
