Look What I Won!!!!

I've been away for a while - thank you to everyone who emailed and checked up on me. It has been a bit hectic around here for about a month or more, but things are slowing down a little and I am finding more time to blog. I've been reading and keeping up with you all, but just not had the time to blog myself.

About a week or so ago I received a lovely email - telling me that "Simon" had picked my name for a give-away. Simon is a parrot over at Fearless Nesting. Lili was having a give-away of a little Balsam filled pillow that she had made - and I won it! I was so excited when the package came, and was surprised at how big the package was - for a little pillow.

But look what else was inside . . . .

A darling bag - in the same colors . . . with the pillow inside . . .

Here is the bag and the pillow together - don't they match well? And oh the heavenly scent!!!

And there was a little gift bag, with two bars of North Woods Balsam soap - the packaging is as lovely as the soap. These are definitely going in our guest bathroom.

And also in the gift bag

A Maine Moose with a lobster, ornament - this will have a special place
on our tree this year. What could be more "Maine" than a
lobster catching/eating moose, with rain gear on?


Everything is so wonderful, and Lili is so generous - so be sure and stop over and see her blog - they fish for lobsters, make pottery and have a grand time - you will too, this is one of my favorite blogs.

Oh you are so sweet to post this Jo! That moose ornament looks huge when you see it from eye level...it cracks me up! Oh, and Simon says 'hello'!

So, after you shower you smell like moose? No, you smell like fresh woods balsam.
Those were lovely presents.
