*I Play To Win and I Have Been Blessed*

I have been so blessed lately. I have won several giveaways recently and I wanted to share with you my two latest wins. I will start off saying I am sorry to my fellow bloggers for my poor picture taking skills. My goodies are so much nicer than the pictures show.

Now on to win #1.... I won this fabulous handmade doll by Trena at She stitched the bag that is around her shoulder as well. Sorry Trena that my picture doesn't show it clearly. Trena even signed her leg. How cool is that? I'm not keeping her on this chair but for now it is where she is resting.

Here is a picture of the rest of the things that were in the box that I wasn't expecting. Aren't these signs just so perfect. Trena also included some handmade carrots and some candles. I just so appreciate Trena for her talents.

My next win was from Donna at Somehow these pictures got out of order. These two bunnies go in an arrangement I am putting out on my front porch for spring but they haven't made it there yet. I know they will look so sweet.

This picture shows my whole win and yes that Afghan was part of my win!!! Look at the beautiful colors she choose. The picture kind of miss represents the color of my couch. The Afghan matches it perfectly. I just love it!

See how nice it looks draped over the couch. You will have to refer to the picture above to see the true colors of the Afghan because they are distorted in this picture. Our family room gets cold and this will be the perfect cover for those chilly times.

I want to thank Trena and Donna for being so kind and generous. These are two very talented ladies and I feel so blessed to have their creations in my home. When you can spare some time, you will definitely want to stop over and check out their blogs. I'm I know you will enjoy their posts as much as I do.

I'm hoping to post some vacation pictures next and then I want to share with you my Summer Swap gifts I received from a very special lady named Andy. Please be patient with me. I haven't recovered from vacation mode yet and I'm a little slow.

Blessings to all.
