What's new? I won! I won!

Several weeks ago I entered to win Karen's (Some Days Are Diamonds) giveaway. Karen is the Head sister of the Bloggerette Society. Information about the Society can be found here. It's not too late to sign up! Karen is loads of fun and this is the first giveaway of hers that I've entered.  Even though she showed some peeks of the prizes, I was not prepared for the abundance of treasures that came to my door yesterday!

Everything was beautifully wrapped in tissue and tied with seam binding..
in a nifty wooden box...


I took my time opening all of the packets and bags...

(click to enlarge)
so many treasures for crafting!

(lots of paper ephemera)
I love the flowers...silk ones and paper ones! Velvet trims and laces..

all on this sweet saucer...


A beautiful bottle all trimmed out and buttons inside...

and lastly...some vintage doilies, bingo card and two old bobbins..

Thank you Karen! It was like Christmas here yesterday...I had so much fun pouring over every little thing!
Please take the time to visit Karen and consider membership in the Bloggerette Society!

Hi Joyce,

Aren't you the lucky one? Your haul is amazing and worthy of much jealousy, but in a good way. You totally deserve the abundant bounty, and I hope you'll post all the goodies you'll be crafting from it.

Hugs,
Meri

Oh lucky you! What a sweet bunch of goodies you received ~ I can't wait to see what wonderful things you make. That little saucer is so pretty and I love the ribbons and laces. Isn't it funny how little bits of "stuff" can make us so happy!

I'm so glad to see a couple posts from you Joyce!

Such fun treasures. I want to be a bloggerette sister but I can't seem to get my project done :-(

I hope you are feeling better, Joyce, and that the pain is better!

Hugs,

Natasha said...

Wow, you certainly did have a Christmas moment-what amazing goodies. Congratulations!

I have just been reading a few of your older posts and I am so glad to hear that you are feeling better now that you are on medication. What a terrible time you have been through.

Thanks for following my Christmas blog and I look forward to following you too!

Blessings and best wishes,
Natasha.
