I won a giveaway!!  Imagine my surprise. It has been years and years and years since I won anything. I am one of those people that if there were 3 people in a drawing,I would be the last one drawn. Always !! When we were doing craft shows and they were giving away door prizes Mother would win all kinds of things. She truely had the luck of the Irish even though she was mostly Scottish. I have entered all kinds of giveaways on the blogs.  I never come close.  I was floored to see a comment on my blog entry telling me I had won Lorena's giveaway over at Rose Chic Friends ( ).  My prize arrived Thursday and it is beautiful. The pics do not do it justice. She painted the beautiful roses on a paper doily and added rhinestone hearts.
And as pretty as the heart pocket is, it is the little fan that I adore.  I am a hot natured person living in the South, where it is hot 3/4 of the time.  I carry a little fan with me all the time.  Now I have a beautiful fan to take to church with me.  It will fit right in my small handbags that I like to carry on Sundays.  I am going to give my friend Rheba one of the tags.  She loves cottage chic as much as I do. 
I have this $1.00 bullentin board hanging over my computer. One of my favorite finds at the thrift store because it is so big and fits right in that space over my monitor. Now I am going to have to decorate my board to go with my pocket.  Trust me, that beautiful pocket will hang there way past Valentine's Day.  Thank you Lorena so very much for drawing my name.  You have boosted my flaging spirits so high during these dreary winter days.
May God Bless you and your loved ones.
