My Treasures from Carole of Maynard Greenhouse ...

Yes, you read right :) ...Treasures...all from the lovely Carole from Maynard Green House blog, whose giveaway....I was ever so lucky to win :)

First of all, I want to thank all of you for your patience...because truth be told...patience and I have yet to meet :) I want to thank my lovely friend Dawn for her genuine happiness in my winning and encouraging me to take as many pictures as possible and just trying till I was happy with the results and then that leads me to my Mr wonderful, thank you papi for your love and patience, taking picture after picture till I was happy... and I am sooo sorry for those extra grey hairs that I just added to your head...but really you look ever so more gorgeous and distinguished...so papi... your welcome lol.

But most of all Carole, thank you! You picked all these lovely things that I absolutely love...like I said before, I love your taste and I am amazed at how you just knew everything that I would love...also Mr wonderful say thanks alot for the Jeanne d'Arc Living magazine and sending me into a whole new frenzy and obsession lol

Now without further adieu...please enjoy the treasures of this lucky duck...

In this first picture, please excuse the palm tree fabric parson chairs :) they are waiting for drop cloth slipcovers ... just imagine how they will look :)...Thank you for that idea, Dawn :)

I love, love this...I think I will leave it just like this...

look how tiny this lovely lil package is...I love love tiny things...

But look at the treasure that was waiting inside....
simply lovely....

look at what pretties were in this music sheet package...

you see now why I felt so guilty opening these lovely packages :)

but look at the lovelies waiting inside....
mine, mine...mine
mine, mine mine...all mine...my stars I sound like I am 2 :)
we took about 60 pictures, I cut that to 20, I edited that to these....I didn't want to scare you off...but I did want you to enjoy all the lovelies that Carole was so kind to send to me...everytime I walk by the table and see these things...I smile...I gush and I say...THANK YOU, CAROLE...and then I say...mine, mine, mine...seriously..ask Mr wonderful :)


I hope you enjoyed all my treasures as much as I have and like said...it feels like I got a present from one of my favorite rockstars ;)

Rose,
You are just too sweet and it gives me such pleasure to know how happy you are with these gifts. I really had fun putting them together. My craftroom had become a foreign land for a few months and I truly enjoyed getting in there and making something just for YOU!!!
You are too modest!!! your pictures are perfect. It's great to be able to see them in your home. Thank your hubby for me for taking the pics. I'm the same way I take tons of pictures and end up with just one or two. it's so hard to decide which to edit.
I think your new "obsessions"~lol will go well with your existing decor.....the nordic french look can adapt with so many things.
Your biggest fan,
Carole

I'd be walking around the house chanting too, if they'd have been mine. Carole is the best personal shopper. You're a lucky duck alright.
