I Won.....

I'm finally able to get it together to tell you all about how lucky I was to win a fabulous giveaway! If you haven't visited Tina at What We Keep, you are missing out! She is as sweet as she can be and her blog is wonderful! She's also getting ready to open an etsy store which I'm sure will have a lot of her amazing embroidered things for sale!  Next time you are out browsing around, give her a visit or just click on the link at the end of this post, you won't be sorry!  Now, on to what I won!  A few weeks before Christmas she was giving away a beautiful embroidered apron with a Christmas motif and 2 hot pads  made out of a  brown linen type fabric.  It  came  with red or blue stripes and you could pick which you wanted.  I picked the red since my colors are red, olive greens and browns.   Then came the snag!  A couple of weeks went by and I never got it so I e-mailed her back to find out if and when she had mailed it!  Well, she had mailed it right away and  since neither one of us had gotten it, it we "assume" it's lost in that big "mailbag in the sky"!   She asked me if I wanted something different on it since the holidays were over so I opted for a monogram of my initials.  It arrived shortly after that and, boy did I get a surprise! Not only had she sent me a beautiful monogrammed apron, she also sent me the one with the original Christmas motif and not 2 but 4 hot pads and the sweetest little white square embroidered with a darling bird carrying a envelope with a heart on it!  They are beautiful and I know you all will agree!  Now, just because I have 2 amazing aprons, don't expect me to cook any more then I have to!  (I'll just wear them around the house, they will so make me look like I know what I'm doing in the kitchen)!  When I'm not wearing them, they will be hanging on the side of my cabinet looking gorgeous!
















Don't ya just love them!!
Give Tina a visit and tell her I sent you!

Till next time......
