Surprises in the mail!

Packages and cards from blog buddies are the MOST FUN!

Have you noticed my new profile pic in the sidebar, just above the followers?

Emma made this card with a painting of ME on the front, walking stick in hand, ready to go for a hike!

Susie from She Junks sent it to me (Emma is her beautiful granddaughter). Thanks Emma!

I won a giveaway at Live and Dream a Little Dream and received this movie from Fly By Promotions.

“Ragamuffin” based on the life of Rich Mullins.

Thanks Noelle! I can’t wait to watch it!

And I also won a sweet giveaway during the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party from Valerie at Yarni Gras!

She made this cute little pin cushion and included buttons and pretty trim in the package.

I’ve found a perfect place for it on my sewing machine. It’s so petite and sweet!

You must certainly live a blessed life...you won another giveaway! What a cute card and the picn cushion is SO CUTE! I have seen the movie Ragamuffin and it was really good. Rich Mullins was such a gifted song writer. I did not know the circumstances of his death or the struggles in his life. Enjoy all of your gifts, you lucky girl, you!!

Congratulations on all the winnings! You are quite the lucky duck and I think I need some of that luck to rub off on me, haha. You seem like a most deserving person of all this goodness Diane!
Wishing you well with fairy tale blessings and storybook happy endings. ~Tricia.

Cranberry Morning said...

What fun treats, Diane! Love that little shoe. :-) I read your comment to Vee today. Great suggestions. I like to turn on the lights too and bake bread and watch a favorite old movie, like maybe a Campion. :-) I probably shouldn't have left her such a silly comment but she has a good sense of humor. Have a lovely day!

This is the cutest picture that Emma drew. How fun that you used it for your profile picture. Susie is one of my dearest blog friends. I also won a giveaway book from Noelle one time. We've got two wonderful and very special blog friends in common here, my friend.

love,
