Feeling Blessed

Instead of my regular Friday post
I wanted to share all my recent good fortune with you

I feel blessed as I am writing this
as I have won not one, or two
but three different things over the past month or so

first up is a subscription to


Folk magazine!

I cannot tell you how excited I was to win this over at Donna's blog

I had just placed a subscription for it a week or so 
before the win ~ so now I will have 2 years of Folk!

Next up was a Facebook contest 
through the Alphabet Photography page

if you have not seen any of their work
you are truly missing out!


I bought a couple of these last year for wedding gifts
but never ~ let's say "invested" in a piece of my own

I was able to pick out whatever I wanted
so I chose our last name and cannot wait to hang it
in the living room!

Last but certainly not least was a giveaway over at

she was giving away a sweet sweet clutch
by Laura Clausan
find her shop here


it came wrapped in the cutest ~ sweetest packaging
if you can believe it ~ I only opened it the next morning
as I wanted a picture before I opened it


the little tag was adorable


I absolutely love it!



big thanks go out to both Mikal & Laura!!

So you can see why I am feeling blessed today
and thankful for such wonderful people in my life

another thing I am thankful for today
is vacation

yes ~ 2 glorious weeks off
I am a happy girl!

We are headed to the cottage for some work
yes ~ we are finally getting the sill replaced

I will be documenting everything
and cooking for the crew
along with keeping the beer cold!

Have a fabulous holiday week-end everyone
and I will catch up with you all next week.

You lucky girl you !! What brilliant giveaways to win Lori. I have bought two pictures from Alphabet Photography. I had my two nieces babies names done and they are so good aren't they ?....and, it is rather spooky as I am looking at thier website as we speak !!
You and Trevor have a wonderful time at your cottage. I'm sure that you will keep us posted to what is going on and what you are up to.
Have fun. XXXX
