A Wonderful Package...or...Thanks, Cathy!

IMG_1986 A wonderful package arrived at my door this morning!  I was so excited because I knew it was from Cathy at Mille Fleur! I was the lucky person who won her 100th post give-away! If you haven’t visited her yet, you are in for a treat! She is a sweet and generous lady with a beautiful blog!

page2 Of course, as soon as it came in the door, the staff had to inspect it! I do appreciate their helpfulness, but finally managed to distract them with the shipping peanuts! Now I can show you what I found inside…

IMG_2001 …all of these beautiful items…all from Anthropologie! Can’t you tell?  It’s as if they were chosen especially for me!

page3 There was a creamy Provençal spice jar for thyme, a tall bottle with an amazing prism stopper and a gorgeous embroidered dishtowel…

IMG_1995 The pretty French thyme jar has found a place with my blue and white Spode plates!

IMG_2005 And my little wheels are already turning for the beautiful bottle! I am now on the hunt for white buttons to fill it! It will join the vintage silver on my buffet! Have you ever seen a more beautiful collection of goodies? I am so excited! And that is not all…I also won a $40 gift certificate from CSN. I’m still working on how to spend it! Thank you so much, Cathy! You are one special lady…with fabulous taste, I might add! Be sure to visit her beautiful blog Mille Fleur to see more!
 I continue to be amazed by the kindness and generosity of my fellow bloggers! I count all of you among my blessings. Who knew that blogging could open up such a wonderful world filled with such amazing people? Thanks for the smiles that you bring daily!
