HEY MR POSTMAN IS THERE A LETTER FOR ME????

No – it’s a package.

The wonderful Michelle Legler, The Mosaic Queen from The Mosaic Cottage Blog sent me the most delightful Mosaic Cupcake. Knowing how much I love the Shabby Chic colours this is the beautiful creation she sent me
I was so lucky to be the winner in her giveaway.
Thanks Michelle it is a wonderful early Christmas present for me.
Well Surprise, Surprise as Gomer Pyle would say (those of us old enough to remember would know who Gomer Pyle was) there did end up being a letter for me.
No make that two letters

The first letter that was in a pretty envelope came from Karin of Creative Chaos, as I had won a giveaway drawn by Carlos one of her cute boys. Lucky for me Andres was asleep otherwise if he drew the winner it may have been someone else. Thank you Carlos.
Karin is the proud Mom of two little darlings that fall asleep in some funny positions and places.
In Karin’s giveaway I won a gorgeous tag. It has such a pretty cake on it.
The second letter contained a lovely Christmas card, recipe card and a list of great books to read from Tiffany of Tiffanys Handpainted Loveboxes.
Thank you Tiffany it is a very special gift.


A BIG THANK YOU - to everyone that has sent such lovely messages and thoughts on the passing of my father-in-law Stan
