I was a winner


Terri Takacs of the blog Lavenderbetweenthecracks.blogspot.com had a giveaway on her blog and guess who won. I was so surprised when she emailed me to tell me. I had forgotten I had entered and did not know what it was for. Well not to spoil the srprise I did not go back to her site to see what it was. The mail arrived and there was an envelope from Terri and when I opened it there was this lovely wallhanging piece she made with a pocket to post a picture in. She put pieces of sea glass on it and shells under the netting plus she used some lovely lace pieces. Apparently she had her children's picture in there but removed it before she mailed it. She said I could cut out the netting in front but I like the look with the netting. I was trying to decide what pic to put in there and then remembered I had been seeing this picture of 5 friends and I found it and made a photo. The reason this was special is it shows 5 gals apparently friends and I wanted to say what friends I have made since I entered the blogging world. I feel like I have friends all over the world and they are the nicest and kindest group of friends a person could have. Many of you I feel as if you are old friends from long ago.

I truly appreciate each and every one of you who read my blog and send me comments. I know it isn't a very fancy blog but maybe one day I will have someone help me to a better way of doing things but in the meantime here I am.

Thank you again Terri. I love it and will take it to Florida and put it in my bedroom there. I am planning on repainting it when we get there. I want a very pale gray/turquoise color. I know what I want - just need to find it.

A beautiful win. I just love the flowers on your previous post too. What a good teacher she must be to inspire her students to do such wonderful work.
