I won a beautiful giveaway!

Yes I did!  I was the lucky winner of a very beautiful giveaway from one of our favorite bloggers, Rosemary of Villabarnes.  You can view her fabulous blog here Villabarnes.  It was the perfect giveaway for me as you'll see in just a sec when I post the pictures.  As I mentioned before I have dedicated it to my departed little sister Chriss Tina.  I think of her every time I look at the things that Rosemary sent to me.  There were lots of entries, there always are when Rosemary has a giveaway.  I believe my little sis may have had a hand in me being the one that won.

Couldn't wait to get my hands on this!

There were so many pretty things.  Everything Rosemary makes is divine!  I received a pair of her sought after "angel wings".   There were also sparkly gift tags - I think there were 48 of them.  I've noticed in blogland that homemade gift tags are all the rage (and not just for gifts) so was very happy to receive those.  And you can see three amazing vintage bottles in this shot.  They have her transferred vintage angel on them.  Perfect as a tribute to Chriss Tina.

Rosemary has a tutorial for transferring images to glass on her blog.  One of these days soon I am going to try my hand at it but I am a teeny bit chicken to try right now.  Going to take baby steps as I enter the craft world. lol

I am taking these photos in my office at work.  I have an "interior" office which in translation means "no window" which also translates to terrible lighting.  But I want to leave these on my credenza at work as that is where I will get to see them most often.

Are these not perfect as a tribute to a lost loved one?  I think so and I am so grateful to you Rosemary for this gift.

If you want to see some gorgeous shots of these items and look at the many, many creative and wonderful things she makes definitely stop by her blog.  I gave you the general link above.  This will take you directly to the pictures of these items so you can see them in their true loveliness. The Giveaway.

Thank you so much Rosemary for these beautiful items for me to remember my sister by.

Thank you for stopping by to visit!!
