I won a give away!

Woohoo! I found a package on my porch this week from Hopscotch and Hydrangeas~ It was from Heather's 100th post celebration!

Oooo, let's look inside!

I knew I was to get the cute teapot...but when I opened the lid all these pretty vintage linens kept coming out! (I told Heather I expected to pull out a rabbit!)

Then I found these darling earrings! PINK! I especially like the ones with the wooden beads. You can find beauties like these in her etsy shop, 2sisters1love.




With this cute red and white gem arriving just before Valentine's Day, I felt a little vignette coming on...

Tossed in some vintage jewelry, pearls, and chocolate... and voila! You can click the images to see the baubles better~


The crocheted doily with roses on it is one of two that my friend Jaede sent to me~


Kevin must have been inspired, because when I came downstairs this morning I found THIS!



Scrambled eggs, yogurt, and fresh strawberries. All Weight Watcher friendly! Thank you sweetie!


And thank you Heather! I love all of my goodies! I'd post a pic of me wearing the earrings, but right now I'm wearing blue sweats with paint stains, and my senior t-shirt from highschool, lol!


I'd also like to thank everyone for their encouraging comments on my porcupines!

What great items you won. Love how you put them together on the mirrored tray too. And that Kevin ... he's a keeper girl! :) What other man would think to use a centerpiece on the table, or even to make breakfast. You are truly blessed in love. xxoo

Wow, what great gifts. You must have been overjoyed to find the vintage pieces too!
And wow, WTG Kevin! That was SO sweet. I mean, the man even used chargers! Why he set the table for four I can't guess though. LOL

Congratulations on winning that fabulous giveaway gift! Lovely vignette!
Those porcupine cupcakes in your previous post are absolutely adorable!!!

Jill said...

Ha...I am just chuckling...you are soooo funny ~ sista! Well I can't find half my stuff that I want to decorate the kitchen with. I have some neat vinegar bottles with stuff in them...so I can't play vignette in the kitchen yet. I keep unearthing treaures but no bottles yet. I am hoping to post my kitchen on Wed.

LOVE those RED plates!!! Oh you did get some goodies, wasn't that most exciting!

I'm a little teapot...cute!

Congrats Nikki! That sure is a sweet little vignette you created.
How sweet is your hubby? VERY!!! A keeper for sure. I always love to hear when a hubbs takes care of his lady...my hubbs does the same. Every weekend, I get my coffee poured, creamed and brought to me. How can we not love such sweet guys?
Enjoy your day and If I have forgotten to mention. You are looking mighty fabulous!

Neat stuff in the package, Nikki. I love the porcupines too! So clever!

I told J, if we ever decide to sell the paisley sofa, I know who to "call"!;-)

Claire said...

The whole ensemble is stunning

Queenie~ said...

Oh Nikki,
I think your comment that you left today is the sweetest I've ever had...thank you for telling me that I remind you of young Jane Seymour...that has got to be the compliment of a lifetime for me...I have never had anyone tell me that before. She is so elegant and sophisticated and so beautiful especially in SIT. I don't think I could ever measure up to her, I know I couldn't...she's a one of a kind...and Probably if you heard my southern voice... it would make you think about more about Paula Deen or maybe remind you of Delta Burke or one of those other southerner's from that show Designing Women instead of young Jane Seymour. LOL! I appreciate your compliments more than you will ever know...though....
You know that you always have reminded me of Rose from Titanic...I think I told you that a time or two....but it's true so I'm saying it again.
I hope you have a fun time in the fabric store and that you find something good and that it's priced right too...maybe you can find a pompom or two. LOL! Have a beautiful day!

Oh, what lovelies! You know I love all the red. Enjoy!
