Winning streak! :))

I'm finally back once again wanting to show you what all I won while I've been MIA, ha. This is a handmade dolly I won from Pat C. over at All is Bright. Isn't she just the cutest little gal?? Thanks again Pat! She is adorable! I still haven't thought of a proper name for her~any suggestions?? She has a red/white strawberry dress on, so I thought she'd look cute sitting next to all my red/white cherry items.

Then I knew I needed to tweak a few more things on the shelf below, so I got out some cookbooks I had and put them in the background for interest/color.
The next thing I won was a Lizzie*Kate calculator!!! She was giving away 10 of these babies and I was lucky enough to receive one! I love lime green!!
But that wasn't all she sent me~ she also included a LK Halloween Quick-It, a bookmark and a handwritten note! Wasn't that sweet of her? Thanks again Linda, I love it all! go check out her blog~she is an amazing designer and has always been one of my all-time favorites!!
The third thing I won was from Lainey. She had made this from a Pine Mt. Design pillow kit and wanted to pass along the chart. She ended up pulling my name and wa-la, I was a winner again! LOL
Lainey(Elaine) and I decided earlier this yr. back in the spring to do a private exchange w/each other and so this is what all she sent me from Scotland! She sent me all kinds of goodies/trinkets; ribbon, tassels, fabric, linen, buttons, seam ripper, and a really gorgeous key chain w/the Scottish emblem on it, but the best part was her sweet cross stitched pillow she made just for me!
Here's a better pic of it. I love the way she used the ribbon/buttons on the sides! so very sweet! Thanks again Lainey!!
I'll leave you w/a fall display at a nearby campground we went to recently.

I think we are all 'winners' when we share our love of things that are close to our hearts! Whether it be family, friends, crafts or recipes, we're all here for the same reasons pretty much. You are all winners in my book!!!

Oh Tanya,
She looks so perfect with all your cherry collections. So glad she is home with you. How about naming her Cherry - or is that too obvious! Lol

You certainly have won some very nice things. Good on you!
