A Giveaway Arrived

Hello everyone. Today I would like to show you what I won from Yvette's Giveaway at "The Charm House." The parcel arrived the other day and it was just full of goodies!
Everything arrived in a box with Mickey Mouse on it; very cute!
When I opened it up, it was full of pink tissue paper with brown polka dots. Yvette had everything wrapped so beautifully! Thank you Yvette!Two small boxes were tied up with pretty brown ribbon. As you can see from the pictures, there were all sorts of goodies......a Promise Book, a notepad and pen, four vintage clothes pins wrapped with binding, a bag full of spools, and the three hard covered Readers Digests were also tied up with brown ribbon. There was also a personal note from Yvette to me. When I opened the two little boxes, one held some vintage jewelery.

The other held a bird's nest with three eggs in it. Lots of surprises! What's your favourite? Blogging is so much fun!!

Yesterday, another parcel arrived which I will show you later on this week.

I also want to tell you about my friend Katherine at Country Romantic who is having a giveaway on her blog. She is giving away a beautiful Victorian album.

Please keep Katherine and her family in your prayers as her grandmother passed away the other day. Why not stop by and pay her a visit? I know she would appreciate a visit and a word of encouragement at this sad time! Blessings on you all!
