My Lucky Day!

I wanted to share with you this nice little lucky streak I had!!!  No, not gambling ... Giveaways!!!
I won THE most adorable apron through a generous giveaway from Pam at RetroRenovation.  Pam's blog was the first blog I ever followed - DAILY.  I think I have followed her since Retro Renovation's inception!  
It's a retro apron with a matching Lucy head wrap.  Isn't it adorable??!!

The apron is made by Bella Pamella and I got to choose which style I wanted.  I chose the "Nora" in Ruby Dot.  

This is the Lucy Head Wrap.  Just like Lucy wore!

This is the back - it's just as cute from the back as it is from the front!  Two roomy pockets on each side and  the ties are long enough to make a sweet bow.

I did wear the head wrap one day when I was doing some cleaning and laundry.  I don't have a picture of me wearing it, but I'll tell you, I thought I was pretty cute!!!  LOL!

Here's the tag - you can tell their aprons are quality!

Sending warm hugs to Pam - I'm a happy winner!!

Now this next giveaway I won through FB by The House That Lars Built, a blog written by the lovely Brittany Watson Jepsen in Denmark!

The prize is this beautiful book Issue Sound from Swarovski.

I am going to let these pictures speak for themselves.  The photos in it are gorgeous.  When I get into my "jewelry-making" mode again, I will be attempting something from this book!

A nice card from Brittany.

An interesting necklace ~

Aren't these gorgeous?  I love the photography in this book.

I love a step by step guide.

I actually HAVE a Wig Jig that I've never used.  *Tsk tsk*.  Now I have something to follow so I can finally give it a try!!

I just HAD to show you the postmark!  You know I'll be saving it!!  I have my little collection of  postmarks/stamps from other places and I think these might be used in my paper crafting somehow.

Thank you, Brittany!  I 'm really enjoying it!!

Gee, I just love surprises, don't you?  Both of these wins were total surprises to me.  I guess I just have to say ... I'm a lucky duck!!!!!

Happy Halloween Everyone!!
