My Gift Arrived!

My wonderful giveaway from Vicki at 2 Bags Full arrived yesterday!

When I first opened the box it looked so lovely that I thought I'd share my enjoyment with you!

Not only was it carefully wrapped in tissue, but also tied with
soft yarns.  Vicki also included a beautiful notecard complete with bird and nest.

Isn't it just lovely?

Now the best part....

My daughter had given me a wrap for coming to and from the pool.
It is an odd shade of red/orange that I just love.

A few months ago I found a hat to match the wrap.

And guess what?

The tote matches everything!!!

Doesn't it all look great?

I'm going shopping this weekend and find some matching towels
to make the ensamble complete.

Can't wait for my next cruise.....!!!

Thank you again, Vicki!

Until next time ~

Vera Grateful Giveaway from Vicki at 2 Bags Full

My friend Vicki over at 2 Bags Full had a Vera Grateful Giveaway
and I won!!!
These were her Vera Bradley giveaways.

And I won the Grand Tote!
Isn't it fabulous!
Vicki is an amazing person.  
She creates beautiful "shabby chic nests" (of which I currently own two!). 
She organizes spectacular Grow Your Blog parties (where I met most of you:-).
She collects pink scarves, created and gifted by bloggers, for survivors and sufferers of breast cancer.
She knits lovely wraps and items for her adorable grand babies.
She travels and writes helpful hints.
She is generous beyond belief.

Vicki is so inspiring. I don't know how she does all she does!
But I am very thankful that I somehow stumbled across her blog. 
Because of it, I have been blessed. 

I look forward to each of Vicki's posts and hope that
 if you haven't visited her for a while, you will stop by soon!

Until next time ~
