PRETTY IN PINK....THANK YOU DEB!!!

You've heard the saying that the best gifts come in small packages, right?  Well, I beg to differ.  You see I received this HUGE box from Deb on Saturday.  It was so exciting and I knew right away what was in that big ol' box.....lots and lots of peanuts, green peanuts that is, the packaging kind to cushion the ride!  I don't think I could have found the scissors fast enough, my heart was racing because I knew something beautiful was waiting for me inside. Are you ready?.......... Ok, I know alot of you will be jealous when you see this, but look what I won from Deb (Thread Gatherer) in her Spring Giveaway....

"Precious, My Pink Princess"

WooHoo!!!!  Let me introduce you to "Precious, My Pink Princess", isn't she just amazingly beautiful and crown worthy!  I think I am entitled to bragging rights about this one!   I snagged this photo from Deb because it is such a great photo - I hope that is ok with you Deb.  I figured it would be easier to beg for forgiveness than ask for permission, so I went ahead and did it anyway. 

I was so excited to win Deb's giveaway.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart Deb, I will be adorning her "crown" with jewel toned scissors very soon.  This is the kind of frog I like, it requires no unpicking of threads! 

She also included  a lovely pair of silver/gold scissors, some needles, a chocolate rabbit and eggs, some beautiful fabrics, gorgeous ribbon and some Ferrero Rocher Fine Hazelnut Chocolates.    Incredible.....you are such a sweet friend Deb.  I am so glad our paths crossed in blogland. I will cherish my antique frog forever! I have posted some photos of these goodies below so you can drool over your keyboard (just kidding, not)!!! lol















***For those of you that have requested copies of the recipes I have gathered, I am still organizing them and will get you a copy of them as soon as I can get them put together. Also, I will post an update about the Hares Christmas a little later in the week. Thanks for understanding. Smiles.....

Stunning -congratulations on winning such a lovely gift!

Bronny said...

Congratulations.
I did post on Deb's competition post the information about your prize. Treasure it, my friend.
It is 'Old Colony' Flower vase and frog. This pattern, made by the Hocking glass company (later Anchor-Hocking - makers of FireKing glassware), was made in a very small period of time. Off the top of my head, 1932-1936.
It is one of the sweetest patterns made and is truly known as 'Depression Glass' - referring to the time period - not the mood.
You are a lucky and deserving winner. Enjoy your stash explosion!

What a wonderful gift and I was so happy to hear that you had won. Deb added so many wonderful goodies to the box -she has the biggest heart! I bet you had no trouble filling your frog with scissors - you'll have to show it to us all filled up.

Marjorie said...

Congrats on the great package Jolene, you are so generous with others so I am glad you won!

Deb said...

Jolene - I'm so happy that it got there safe and sound! I was so worried that something would happen in transit! I hope that you always enjoy it and think of me and our blogging friendship when you look at it. I think that you need to show another picture of it when you get all your scissors arranged.

P.S. I love how you stuck the eggs in the frog holes! LOL Hope you enjoy everything.

P.S.S. I'd love a copy of those recipes when you have a chance.

Congrats Jolene!!!! You ARE one lucky lady because I wanted that flower frog soooo bad! I've been watching eBay for quite a while now ;o) It's gorgeous isn't it? And the goodies that went with it sure do look yummy!

Alice said...

Deb really spoiled you Jolene. Enjoy it. ; ) It's a lovely frog and it was meant for you. Yummy chocolate. I used to love eating those fancy Ferrero chocolate's.
All that is now left to do is to show us a photo of all your scissors in your frog.
