My Goodies From Melissa's Giveaway~

Hi everyone! It's here! It's here!
I had been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the package of goodies I won from Melissa's Birthday Giveaway,
Saturday there was a knock at the door and the waiting was over!

Here it is!!
I opened up the box and....
and everything was wrapped in pretty tissue paper.

There was also a very sweet message on a note card from Melissa!


Well now.... Here's what I did with all the goodies!

I put the darling little sign with the sweet verse and birdie on it from the giveaway, above this arrangement I had made from items I bought on my last thrift store shopping spree.



I decided to change out the pictures that were originally in the gold frames.
In case you forgot how they looked before here's the link to the post from when I bought them:

I thought these new prints looked look so cute,
and go well with the the sign too.


Be sure to click the pic to enlarge so you can get a close up look!



Unfortunately
this darling little frame got a bit damaged in during shipping.


But not to worry....

A little glue and paint, and I don't think anyone would ever notice.


Isn't this the cutest?!!


I placed it center stage on the mantel in my living room!




These adorable strawberry salt and pepper shakers (below)
have darling little bee's on them,
I just love them to pieces!!!


They make such a cute addition to my other little S&P shakers too!!


I'm sure they'll get moved around a few times before I find the ideal spot.


After all the fun and and excitement, I got a bit thirsty!


So of course I had to try out the peach tea!

....ahhh refreshing!

This was all such a wonderful treat for me!
I felt like it was my birthday!

Thank you so much for your generosity especially on your birthday, Melissa!
You are such a special person!!!

Sherri!!! Ah, You are so sweet to make such a pretty post showing us everything displayed in your beautiful home. I have tears in my eyes. I can certainly tell how much you are enjoying it all and that really makes me so happy.
You deserve it all my friend!

The sign is PERFECT with your other pictures and I love what you did with blue vintage frame. How creative to make it your own like that. I'm so sorry it had a little ding. Shucks. I'm glad you were able to repair it so well. The S/P shackers are so cute and look right at home with your collection. ~Precious!

Some giveaway winners are just meant to be. I'm thrilled you won! ~Enjoy everything!

Have a blessed evening.
~Melissa :)

Hi Sherri,
It is so fun to get goodies in the mail. These are awesome and I'm so glad you were the winner. Couldn't have happened to a sweeter girl. I love that frame! That is one of my favorite colors. I have a lot of green everywhere in this place.

Sherri,
I was so happy to see you won Melissa's giveaway. I can't get over how perfect these pretty things match up with what you already had.
I hope your off to a good week and your mom and sister are doing better. It has been hot and humid around here, which thankfully is not the norm. Take care.

He wanders the house too. He just sleeps on his thrown er, tower.

Wait? I spelled that wrong.
It's "throne" I think.
