Gifts From A Good Friend.

I never win anything. NEVER. I have of course not participated in many contests and I have bought lottery tickets only a few times in my life, but I have never won anything.
Until now.

Recently, my very talented blog friend Holly hosted a giveaway in honour of her one year blog anniversary. Holly is one of my oldest blog friends and she is so kind, generous and absolutely talented.
In any case, I seem to have become one of the winners! About a week ago as I returned from work, there was an envelope waiting for me in the mailbox, filled with small "treasures".

Thank you Holly, the gifts were a wonderful surprise.

Protege: You are the epitome of good feelings towards others and as Barry said good fortune! We are on the same page when it comes to our themes this morning...the power of friendship.

Holly said...

Ah,...You are so good to me!!:) I love that you actually posted your little package. I think that I am the lucky one to have a old and dear blog friend like you! Do you realize that you were the first person who ever left a comment on my blog?
