Blogger generosity

I have been pretty lucky lately. I entered a couple of giveaways - and won (now I am wondering if I should buy a lottery ticket)!

First, I was the lucky recipient of some beautiful enameled beads by Barbara Lewis.



Aren't these luscious? If you aren't familiar with Barbara, I encourage you to take a look at her blog Painting with Fire Artwear - you know you want to!! I am still thinking about what special project I am going to use them in...

Then - it seems my stars were all aligned or I was being followed by lucky ladybugs or who knows what the reason was - I won the giveaway that Angie was having on her blog Hopemore Studio.


Isn't this a gorgeous pendant? And look at the lovely ribbons she sent along with it!




She also included these goodies - little dangle sized pieces. I think they are lovely!

Thank you so very much, Barbara and Angie!!!!
