I WON, I WON, I WON!!!! And Some Very Heartfelt Thanks!!!

Fridays the 13th kinda spook me.  I haven't had the best track record with them....(How about missing your Greek & Roman Mythology final exam because you got your curling brush completely and hopelessly tangled and stuck in your hair as just ONE example??? Ok....let's not even go there...)
And, as I've mentioned before, I don't have the greatest relationship with Lady Luck anyway - so, I just have never really trusted Fridays that land on the 13th of the month....

But this time around, I'm trying to be very proactive and optimistic....
So, I thought it would be very appropriate to share some of my recent wonderfully GOOD luck on this Friday the 13th (see....I'm not even afraid to say it anymore....)

A bit ago, I won a wonderful giveaway hosted by Lori at Midnight Farm
(Same Lori as from Notforgotten Farm)

Lori gave me this sweet little trick or treat pinkeeper she made:

I LOVE all things Halloween and this is the cutest little thing ever!!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH, Lori ~ LOVE it!!! It will have a treasured place in my collection!
If you haven't been to Midnight Farm, you need to go....It is such a fun and inspiring place to visit!!

Now, I would have thought that I had been lucky enough, but I also won a giveaway from White Flower Farmhouse:
Look at this awesome little sailboat made of driftwood and linen:

(The first two photos are the one I received; but I was having problems getting a good picture - so I borrowed a photo from White Flower Farmhouse to show you how cute these things are....)

THANK YOU, Lori & Lisa!!!  Too, too, sweet! This is going into my son's new bathroom as soon as we get it completed! Check out White Flower Farmhouse's online shop ~ so many unique and wonderful finds!

Did you notice there were three "I won's" in my title??? Yes siree sir!!!
I CAN'T believe it!!!
Sweet Dee from IceHouseCrafts ( had a giveaway....
As an extra "surprise" gift, she drew a name from among those who had posted her giveaway to their blog.....
And it was my name she drew!!!  YIPPEE!!! :o))
This is what Dee made for me:

(Not the best photo, I know - but she had them wrapped so dang cute I had to show you....Almost didn't want to open them...NOT!!) 

Adorable little beeswax hangers:

This little willow tree has a tag that says "Blessings"

And this little pineapple has a tag that says "Welcome"

I LOVE them Dee!! Thank you, Sweetie!!  That was so very kind of you!!

So....YEAH!!! I'm am still squealing over here!!! Even if a mirror breaks today (yup, that happened to me too on the same Friday the 13th I got my curling brush stuck on my head), I won't give it a second thought....(well??)
Right now, even though it's rainy and frigid, I'm going outside to do my happy dance.....

A GREAT BIG heartfelt THANK YOU to Lori, Lori & Lisa, & Dee!!!

Lucky, lucky, lucky. They are all very cute. Your Friday the 13th curse is over. I've always been lucky on that day. In 1997 I interviewed for a job on Friday the 13th - I'm still there.

Courtney said...

Okay...a curling iron mishap...I love are too much! I would say that you've broken the Friday the 13th curse and then some. In fact, could you send a bit of luck my way? I'm on interview #2 on Tuesday! I think all your loot is just the greatest! I've gotta get serious about entering some giveaways!

I always kinda liked Fri 13th. My first son was born on that day. His luck however hasn't always been so good on the Friday 13th. Loved your giveaway winnings. Just found your blog.
