I Won

I was sitting on the back deck this afternoon relaxing after a morning in the garden when hubby arrived with a box from the post office.

A few weeks ago Mary Lou at M is for Maga had a giveaway and I won, the box arrived full of goodies.  Are you ready to unpack, I am so excited to see what those packages contain.

The first package has this butterfly on a stick, it will look lovely sitting in a container on the deck.

A beautiful magnet is wrapped in a small box, is it not lovely.  There is a wonderful scent coming from the box, but I have not found the owner.

A box of hasty notes and three of Mary Lou's greeting cards. The greeting cards would look nice framed, Mmmm...I will have to think on that idea.  Are you starting to notice a theme, butterflies. I am amazed as I have a passion for butterflies.

The owner of the heavenly scent has been found, a bar of soap. It looks so beautiful in its' paper, ribbon and ladybug that I hate to unwrap it.


There is also a flameless candle and holder, it will be nice in the evening on the deck.

I put the magnet on the fridge, it holds the grocery list close at hand,
no more hunting for it on the desk.

The soap sits with a rose in the powder room and its' beautiful scent fills the air.
It is too beautiful to unwrap.

Thank you Mary Lou for this beautiful giveaway.
Please go visit her at M is for Maga.

Jen, I'm so happy that it arrived in good shape. I've wondered every day how far it was from you and now I know you have it. It's a great feeling to know we are linked. Maybe by a bar of soap but so what!
Hope you enjoy it all.
