A giveaway win! Yes!

I recently won a giveaway from Vintage Dragonfly (Joanne Balaz) in her Celebrate Sisterhood Giveaway. I think it is one of the greatest happenings for me to win a giveaway from a blogging sister's giveaway. It is not like a sweepstakes, where your chance is beyond "0" But in these little drawings one has hope, because the odds are so greatly reduced. It is fun to imagine maybe if you won, what you might do with the items. This one was her choice based on the person's taste and blog likes and dislikes. She did superbly and I will use it all. I have not been really lucky in my life, but winning this one was such a nice surprize. I did win one other bloggers giveaway. I darling little book she was published in.
When we got the mail today, I was so excited to open it, I just can't tell you. Above is all the loot. There was so much in that flat padded pack, I was just drooling at the first site of it as I peeled back the old tissue patterns. Wow, was my reaction. My husband even thought some of it was cool. But he did say he likes the fact that I like this kind of stuff!
Here is Joanne's own personal little bits of artwork. She sure did seem to know what I like.
AH, this bit of vintage goodness. I love the old buttons and little candle holders. But the bingo cards
were to die for. Old spools wrapped with trim, and the neatest old photographs of two people. The
language on the back suggests a scandinavian country I think.
And also this very fun butterfly/dragonfly stampset, cute worn snowman ornament, an ornament to decorate myself. Wonderful beads, stickers, felt teddy bears, candle etc. Thankyou thankyou to Joanne, you are a jewel!
