I have just won the most beautiful giveaways ever!!!

I won the sweetest little mini bag filled with so many amazing things from 
the beautiful blog Life In My Studio.

Many of you probably know Debi already and her beautiful artwork, but for those
who don't, I have linked back to her site so you can see it too.
She has such an eye for beauty and is always creating.

Debi made this little lacy bag and then loaded it up with such sweet things
and offered it up for us all to win...
and I was the very lucky girl who won it!

You have to know that unwrapping this was a blast!!!

These are all of my favorite colors bundled up in one beautiful package!!!

It is so lovely Debi...thank you so much!

The second win came in this cool burgundy bag.

See what it says on the front.

Can you guess what is inside?



Rose covered boots from Victoria Trading Company!!!
And who was it who offered these up for her readers to win???
Do you know Rayanne at A Lovely Thought?
She is a beautiful girl.
I have been getting to know her and what a sweet heart!

Aren't these SO me?
I think they are just so cute!

Thank you so much Rayanne for such an amazing giveaway!

I certainly felt like a winner this month with these packages showing 
 up in the mail.
It is getting to the point that going to the post office is an adventure more than 
just an errand to run : )

Have a wonderful week to all of you who read my blog.

I appreciate the friendship and love I feel from all of you when you come to visit.
I never imagined that such wonderful connections could be made,
but am SO glad that they have. 
You have no idea how much you have added to my life.

Jacqueline @ HOME said...

Oh June,
You were meant to win those rose covered wellies (that's what we call them over here !)I can just see you pruning your beautiful roses in them !!.....and, the lacy package that you won is beautiful. That also has 'June' written all over it. I can't think of another blogger that is more deserving.
The weather over here has been so wet that it was only yesterday that we managed to get some work done in our garden. It's amazing how much you can get done in one day, isn't it ?
I hope that you had a wonderful weekend was your Mothering Sunday wasn't it ? We had ours in March.
Have a lovely new week and wear your wellies with pride !! XXXX

suziqu's thread works said...

Dear Sweet June,
I was thrilled to bits to read that you had won both of these Giveaways and I can't think of anyone more deserving!
The purse is gorgeous and well - those gumboots (called where I live!!) are far too precious for getting wet and dirty! I Think they should be kept purely for rose picking and pruning - what do you think? It would be so wonderful to see you wearing them with secateurs in hand!!!
Now sweet friend have a wonderful week creating and enjoying that beautiful garden while I send you heaps of hugs from here!
Love, Suzy

GREAT boots, so gorgeous. I have floral boots and will tell you they are so much fun to wear - you always feel special wandering around with them on.
I can picture you now heading out to the garden with a floral basket to clip some fresh blooms for the house...... a'la your pretty boots, a floaty cotton skirt and a generous smile on your face.
Have fun wearing them.

June you win the the most lovely giveaways!!! I love those boots- they will be so fun to wear out in your beautiful gardens!

We are getting lots of rain here in Colorado and it is looking more green then I have seen it since moving here. My iris are simply gorgeous. I am in NM helping a friend with a wedding so am not able to enjoy them fully- hoping they will still be blooming some when I get home Sunday. Put my veggie garden in this Sunday before I headed south- Bill is there to water though with the rain it might not need much. Hoping there will not be a freeze as it is still 2 weeks early but I had things ready in my little shelf greenhouse unit that just would not wait.

Enjoy your beautiful goodies friend!

bee blessed

Koren said...

CONGRATULATIONS June, they couldn't have gone to anyone else.
You are going to look so darn adorable girl, next to all your gorgeous flowers.

Well, up here in Northern Ontario Canada we've had some really nice weather, along with some cooler days. There's no flowers yet, except for the tulips and spring bulbs..... I'm so looking forward to blooms. Peonies, Peonies and more Peonies.... I'm sure you are too!

Come by for a visit on my blog, I just got going on it, there was sooo much to learn, but you will be able to get a peak and sometime soon I will put up some photos of years past of my garden.


p.s. Sometimes we meet people who we know that God has brought into our lives. Life can be hard sometimes, you've encouraged me and I am blessed!

Cindy said...

Honey how strange I came on my site tonight and you had been there because my purpose tonight was to come by here and copy your site address so I could do a post about you tonight.
Yesterday I was in Barnes and Noble and found you in a very popular magazine and I was so delighted when I found your article.
What was really funny is I am reading it and looking at the pictures and I said this lady is just like June and by gosh it was you. hahaha
Your article was just marvelous and I am thrilled for you.
Did you do a post on it here. I will look.
Hope you don't mind me doing a post about it tonight
Love ya

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Thanks honey your a sweetheart. I will have it published by in the morning.
I am so excited your in that magazine. I tried to find more than one copy but they were sold out. I know it was because of your article.
Love ya
