Thank You's...

Rachell Ashwell is a name I can now put a face to.
Her Shabby Chic that is.
I fell in love with her line at Target and it almost made me want another baby!
Her talent for shabbiness is awesome.
Her line at Target is not just for babies
but it's sweet and rosey and everything my husband would hate. 
Well I saw her book at the book store and just loved on it a bit ...
then to my surprise...
oh yes I did..
was having a giveaway and boy were my fingers crossed tight.
I wont tell that I screamed like a girl when I found out....oh yes I did.
It's just page after page of goodness.
This makes me want to do laundry and hang them on my line.
Yes,I have a clothes line.
You have to in Louisiana because when a hurricane hits..
well lets just say things get a bit stinky after days of no electricty.
I could just frame each and every page...I could.
Yes indeed~
Thank you Miss LuLu...
You have made me one happy girl.
And then...
Who would have guessed I could be so blessed to win another.
Oh happy day!

knew just how to get straight to this girls heart.
She sent the sweetest package full of spring goodies.
Can a girl ever have too much glitter?
I dont think so...
In my package she had filled it to the top with a beautiful teacup,easter chicks,
the best smelling candle ever, and so much more!
Thank you OC Cottage!
Now my Cottage has a touch of your OC Charm~
Thank you

XOXO Susie~
