Don't you just love a good tease....

Hi everyone...I just wanted to share some great news with you really quick :) On Wed. afternoon I recieved the best package in the mail from the ever so sweet Carole of Maynard Greenhouse Blog. Incase you didn't know...I.. me! me! me! was ever so lucky to have won her 100th Post Giveaway! I will be honest when I got it...I started shaking...yes I have gotten packages in the mail before :) But this was different...Let me try and explain my craziness...See when you visit blogs and admire so many of these wonderful talented ladies and then one day...get so amazingly lucky like me, to "meet" My Fairy Blog Mother Dawn, of The feathered Nest who grants my wish and gives me my very own blog and then what seems like magic...these wonderful woman that I so admired for so long are suddenly visiting my blog and leaving me the sweetest comments well...that was over whelming in it's self...and then this....this has been something that I NEVER would have thought...not only did I win an actual Blog Giveaway...but it was from a woman who's blog I had so admired for so long...well she...and the other woman whose blogs I love are like my rockstars...does that make sense??? Anyways I usual :)

So when I realized who the package was from I started to shake...I was sooo excited I had my husband tear the box open for me...that way incase I ruined anything I could blame him (jk..well not really lol) But well when I looked inside there were all these small packages all so beautifully wrapped and I froze up lol I sat the package on my dinning table and walked away ( I love beautiful packages, I am all about the details..I just didn't realize how guilty I would feel to "take them apart" lol )..I was actually scared to look inside and see my treasures lol

See I knew to expect that beautiful magazine Jeanne d'Arc Living...which everyone so loves and maybe one or two lil gifts that she mentioned...but...I wasn't expecting all THIS...Ok so I finally get the nerve to open my beautiful packages and start to take pictures to share with you all...well because in all my "research" visiting all your wonderful blogs...this is what I see you all do when you receive packages so..You know I have to try an emulate the greats :) And wouldn't you know it after 2 pics my husband says "hunny...the batterys dead..gonna be a few hrs to recharge" lol thats life for ya... lesson learned today...when you Officially become a "blogger" you must always have camera batteries ready to go :) So I was able to take a picture of 1 package that was so beautifully wrapped and you know was the magazine and I have been looking at it through out the day every moment that I have gotten a chance too. Tonight I will finish taking pictures to share with you and I will post this weekend to share all the beauties that I got from Carole and I will tell you this...from what I have seen so far...if you have ever visited her blog...then you know...the woman has amazing taste and I am truly one lucky duck...

Have a wonderful safe weekend...may you be surrounded by the love of family and good friends...just enjoy yourselves and eat all the yummies your tummies and hearts desire..we can always diet on another Monday...after all there are sooo many in a year !~

Sorry to be such a tease but with family weekend commitments and trying to think of what I will bring to the get togethers that start tomorrow...well I hope you understand that I wanted to at least share that I received my package and what it meant to me...

Until next time dear friends,

Rose ~

This is a tease! I was getting so excited about seeing all the lovely treasures and then I discover I have to wait! Oh well, gives me a great reason to come back and visit (honestly-you have a lovely blog-I would have come back to visit anyway:).

Thanks for your sweet comment on my post about the Velvet Rose:).

I was thinking that I was just going to scroll to the bottom and see everything and then come back up and read your text. Boy, was I ever in for a surprise. So now I will patiently wait.
Have a lovely rest of the weekend.

You are too funny but in a good way!!!! I can just picture you standing away from the table being afraid to get near it!!! lol.
You are so sweet to say such nice things about my blog. When you told me you had been reading it all those months ago I was so touched. I guess we've all doubted at times if anyone was out there. Now I know "you" were.
Hope you enjoy all your goodies as much as I enjoyed sending them to you!!!!
