When Lady Luck is Smiling!!

One afternoon, I was blog reading and looking at new places to visit. I happened upon The Wild Raspberry and my visit was a bit extended. You see, there was so much eye candy on this blog, I was enjoying myself and lost track of time. Along with lots of great handmade items to drool over, something else drew me in and I spent a great deal of time reading the post on this blog.

The Wild Raspberry is a blog owned by three sisters, Chasity, Shauna and Deborah. The very first post I read was about the younger sister, Shauna and her recent surgery and cancer. I spent a good amount of time learning about these talented ladies, their love for each other, and their love for making beautiful things from fabrics to sell. As you can imagine, I quickly signed up to be a follower, as I did not want to miss a thing.

Please stop by and pay these great ladies a visit....stop and say a prayer for Shauna's quick and speedy recovery, and have a look around their shop. You will be impressed too at the quality of their workmanship. During my visit, I signed up for their 100 post giveaway...and low and behold....I won! Wow! Was I ever, I want to show you my goodies!!

Here is a look at all my winnings! Oh, how cute everything is, and most all of it is handmade....So lovely.

Here is how I found my package when I pulled it out of the mailing envelope. Now, you tell me, just by looking at the could you not be excited!!

Here is a closeup of the darling tags. These are so cute I just loved them.

Included in my goodies is a handmade bag in a beautiful pattern with inside pockets to match...I am thinking this is going to be my go-to bag for my new quilting class.

That cute little red gadget is a coffee cozy...see photo below...Now, you tell me, how cute is that??

Next, is a hand embellished journal, this is just so cute too, I really love it.

And the little added surprise was a brown photo folder with vintage photos and the sweetest little key...Thrilled!! I was just Thrilled!!

Look how cute this is on a regular ole' coffee cup!! (Photo courtesy of The Wild Raspberry)

Here is a look at the vintage photos. There are two little baby photos and two couples on their wedding day. These are really neat vintage photos and the little photo folder just makes this so special.
