Blog Blessings!

Since I began blogging almost 2 years ago, I have been blessed to win so many wonderful gifts via generous giveaways. Just recently I posted about a giveaway at Monogram Chick's Blog. My blog friend, Donna registered and won, so that meant that I won too, since I posted about it. Donna and I both won a beautiful white shower wrap and a lovely cosmetic bag. I love this waffle-weave fabric that the items are made out of. It feels so good and will be great for trips!

Head on over to view Sarah's wonderful store, Monogram Chick. She has some great monogrammed items for wedding, baby, birthday, graduation or to just pamper yourself. Sarah is so sweet and her work is so nice! Your items will come packaged up very pretty for gift giving. Please remember Sarah for gifts. You will be very pleased!!!

Just last year I won a market tote from Sarah and I have received so many compliments on it. She monogrammed it with my first name and I love it!

Earlier this summer, Laura Ingalls Gunn (Decore to Adore) had a great giveaway from Andrea at the French Basketeer. I was the lucky winner of that giveaway and got to choose a beautiful French tote. This is the one that I chose. It is so pretty and such a great size for use as a purse or for traveling. It is real sturdy and I love the leather handles and trim.

Be sure to check out Andrea's website if you need any kind of tote for yourself or as a gift. You will not be disappointed.

I also won a $100 gift card recently from a giveaway that BlogHer hosted. The gift card was provided by Coffeemate. Thank you Coffemate. I will enjoy my gift card.

Ladies, be sure to take the time to register for giveaways. You just never know when you might be the lucky one who wins!! I am going to sit down and make a list one day of all the things I have won since I started blogging. I have sure been lucky to win some wonderful things over the past 2 years.

Most of all I feel so fortunate to have made so many delightful friends via my blog reading. Thanks to all of you who read my blog and comment on a regular basis. I love you all and you are such a blessing in my life. We have laughed together, cried together, prayed for each other, shared recipes, helped each other with decorating tips, shared craft ideas, uplifted each other in tough times, as well as offered words of encouragement. We have been there for each other and I appreciate that so much!

I hope all of you are having a great week. I can't believe that it is already August. The summer is flying by! Take care.

Love & blessings from NC,
