A Generous Heart

I couldn't contain my excitement yesterday when the giveaway I luckily won from Karen of A Shabby Moment In Time arrived!  I got to meet Karen in person at the Wrentham Store's 'At Home with White' event last month.  What a sweetheart she is!  Not only did she bestow the lovely prizes from the giveaway - a French themed pillow, Eiffel tower print and adorable ruffled drawstring bag - but she tucked away some lovely surpises as well.
This hand-stamped bag was filled with goodies, along with the amazing giveaway items:

I just love the ooh-la-la French print & pillow, and am admiring the ruffles on the lovely bag.  It was wrapped in tissue paper with this cute 'Nest' sticker I had to show:

Inside the 'goody' bag was a terrific French-script gift box ensemble & lovely lady hang tag, as well as some gorgeous items Karen made - a lavender burlap/jewelled sachet and some glitter heart & star ornaments I had admired on her blog.  Isn't it so sweet she recalled how much I admired the ornaments?  I am LOVING the light blue in them (of course)...


Thank you Karen for your thoughtfulness and generosity!  I will feature these items again in another post when I can showcase where they end up.
Now I've got to finish the spring giveway I have planned for this blog....watch for news soon.  I'm inspired!
Oh, and happy birthday to my mom-in-law Karyl who is in France as we speak.  Not a bad way to spend your birthday!
