I'm speechless!!

A Cottage Muse
Dreaming in Vintage Whites
I recently joined Sandi's give away that she hosted on her blog.
NEVER did I expect to receive such an extravagant package!
The box was Full of beautiful gifts.

After opening the box, I started unpacking, and unpacking, and unpacking!
What I Did expect was the Flea Market magazine, and items that Sandi had listed in her post.
What a SURPRISE to see All of the wonderful things that  Sandi  packed inside the mailing box. 
 Every item that I unwrapped I had to catch my breath!!!
EVERYTHING matches my decor here at the lakehouse!! Everything!!!

 You may think of me as a little over-sentimental, but I actually had tears in my eyes looking at all the pretty things that I received.

 I am tickled pink to have been chosen for this give away.
Diana hit the nail on the head when she said I would be "over the moon"!

I LOVE everything!

The pillow is so appropriate!
After my illness last winter, this pillow makes a real statement about how I see life now.
I thank you Sandi, from the bottom of my heart, for this gracious collection of beautiful treasures that will be cherished by me.
I was stunned, to say the least!
And, thank you to the gals that contributed to this truly appreciated package of "pretties".
God Bless!!!
