Gifts From Debra Of Common Ground...

The mail carrier sure made my day yesterday!
I received a box from my blog friend, Debra of Common Ground blog!
She drew my name for her incredible 200th Follower Giveaway package,
and to say I was excited is a real understatement!
When I opened the box,
the first thing I saw was the prettiest pink package for moi.
Inside the envelope was a pretty card with a sweet message from Debra,
along with her Victoria Bliss-worthy business card.From there, I commenced to figuratively drool over
each and every component of my prize package.

A package of Cranberry Walnut Cake Mix, wrapped in
a beautiful Thanksgiving turkey tea towel...
A red toile fabric bag which I'm going to repurpose...
A bar of herbal soap in the sweetest fragrance...
A Somerset Holidays publication loaded with inspiration...
A vintage card with two sweet children, which
Debra decorated with wire, ribbon and a button. So beautiful!
A vintage chippy clock face that I coveted from one of
Debra's posts about her booth. She GAVE it to me!

My most favorite prize of all...
This breathtaking 2010 journal.
It's going to be my well-loved datebook for next year.
Just look at this image - multiple pages devoted to birds and the seasons!
Check out the inside covers. See? ACORNS and oak leaves!
Obviously it was meant to be mine!
Debra, dear...I love, love, love every single thing in my package.
To use one of my Mum's terms...I was gobsmacked!
(That's a good thing!)
Thank you so much for your generosity! I wish you all of life's blessings.

I love reading your blog. It is nice to read of someone who likes Oak trees and acorns as much as I do. I grew up in Royal Oak, MI so I really like the Oak, plus my father loved trees and was always trying to plant trees in our yards if he felt they needed them. We had a magnificent Pin Oak tree in our front yard where I grew up. They was a park at the end of our street that had beautiful Burr Oak tree. I was trying to find some Burr oak acorns to send you, but have been unsuccessful so far. They are a unique acorn. The trees are beautiful this Fall in Michigan.

I've been catching up on all of your wonderful posts--I've gotten so far behind in my blog reading this week. Eeks! Anyway we seem to have so many things in common! I just ordered this same 2010 planner and can't wait to see it in person! Such beautiful gifts you received! I also love the Needlecraft magazines and I only own one so far, so thank you so much for sharing the scan of it and I too have a brother that is 5 years younger than me and we are best friends and we spend hours a week on the phone. I'm glad you got to visit with yours. Well back to reading and catching up. I always enjoy reading your wonderful blog!

Cathy ♥
