A Quick Thanks!

Just taking a quick break from regular posts to share the beautiful giveaways I won recently! As someone who never wins anything- (aside from an MTV t-shirt in college- whoopee), I was beyond delighted to find I was the lucky recipient of these charming prizes. The fact that they came from some of my very favorite blogs made them even more special.

This wonderful assortment of gardening Goodies is from the most delightful Cottage and Broome
Now if only the weather would cooperate.
This little pot is so charming
I popped in some Kitty grass which fit perfectly

As you can see my assistant Shadow enjoyed it thoroughly 

This dear little cup is from the lovely site The Nest at Finch Rest
I perched a ceramic egg inside as it is too precious to drink from 

she included an adorable little tea tag

And in keeping with the Spring-garden theme, I thought I'd share these "carrots" I made for Easter-
This is an easy DIY using simply ripe strawberries and orange colored melted chocolate. I found this and other fun recipes at Home Stories A to Z but there are dozens of other tutorials and variations online.

I found a limited edition Orange cream flavor which worked so well with the flavor of the strawberries but you can color your own white chocolate as well

  1. Everything is so special! It's so much fun to win something and get that package in the mail! I'm so happy for you! Happy Spring!

    1. Thanks so much-It is such fun!
      I should be doing a giveaway in the next few weeks- so check back :)

  2. Congrats on your sweet wins and I love your 'carrots'... adorable! :)

  3. I love your wins!

    Thanks for mentioning your little teacup win. It looks cute with its new egg!

    I ♥ your adorable good idea "carrot" strawberries, what a great Easter (healthy) idea.
    Well, healthier than say Cadbury or Resee eggs, haha. At least there's FRUIT - real fruit- involved, haha.

    Big hugs!!

    1. Thanks Michele!
      just love the teacup!
      We were joking about the "carrots" too saying they were healthier- they are fruit and sort of a vegetable :)

  4. Hi Christina, Thank you for visiting me :-) you have such a nice blog and I will be back to visit more. Have a nice evening! Hugs Jennifer
