I won a fabulous giveaway

I won my first giveaway!!!! It's beautiful and I have the Tin Rabbit to thank for it. Yesterday I was contending with my 7 year old's case of strep throat and my 5 years old's killer ear infection. I was on no sleep and frankly quite a bit grumpy when the doorbell rings and my kindly postal lady gave me the most lovely box. I have never seen such a lovely mailing label on a box.

It cheered me up and even my lil ones who were miserable had fun helping me open up the goodies. She went all out on my prize. I was so touched by her care in packaging. Everything was scented too :) It was a feast for the senses. Oh and she sent chocolate, but there are no pics of those. I sorta ate those right away :)

I apologize in advance for taking horrible pictures, with work and sick kids it's really hard to get pictures in the beautiful morning light. The pictures do not in any way do them any justice. She sent 5 of her glorious beautiful handmade roses and a beautiful handmade victorian candy box. She is beyond talented! Her attention to detail is incredible. I wish I had that kinda talent.

I haven't found the perfect spot yet so I sorta put some stuff together for a quick photo session. Please go to her blog and check out her stuff. She is an inspiration and I am so grateful for her generosity. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. It made a tired and grumpy mom very happy!

As always - brightest blessings to everyone and of course to my friend Tin Rabbit -
