I'm A Winner!

Hello my friends!

Way back in October Brittany from The Painted Parsonage had a giveaway for Lilla Rose Flexi Clips.
And I won a beautiful little flexi clip!
Its very pretty and very comfortable to wear, also.
I wear my hair up most of the time, so I wear it often.

Thank you, Brittany!

If you haven't visited The Painted Parsonage yet, you really should.
She's a lovely Pastor's wife with three handsome little boys and she decorates beautifully. 
She also makes the sweetest little purses, which she sells in her etsy shop.


Back in January I won some very delicious chocolates.

Angie from Echoes of Laughter had a giveaway, in fact she has them about once a month.
If you've not visited Angie, you really should.
Particularly if you like GOOD food!
Angie has a new yummy sounding recipe on her blog almost every day of the week.

Ferrero Roche chocolates are my very favourite and because the coupon was so long in arriving, Ferrero Roche added a second one.
So I was able to enjoy TWO 200 gram packages!
Lucky me...well, lucky hubby and me.
I did NOT eat them all by myself, I promise.
In fact the second package was just opened this week.

Thank you, Angie!


Now for something that I put together recently.

I haven't painted the base of the lamp black yet because I wanted to make sure that I liked it before I went to all the trouble.

Here you see it a little better. I simply glued cardboard letters onto an old broken piece of a lamp shade, then put it on the small lamp.

Yes, I think I will paint the base black now that I've decided to keep it.


And...I'm thinking of painting the chairs at the table red!
What do you think?

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for coming by and leaving a sweet comment. 
I appreciate YOU!

What do I think? I think you have wonderfully creative ideas & a good eye for creating beauty in your surroundings. And I also think you are "lucky" when it comes to give-aways. I think I need to enter some myself :)

HI Cindy! You lucky gal! Look at your wins. The hair clip is beautiful and while you're looking all beautiful, you can munch on those yummy chocolates! :)
Now your little lamp is cute and you're the smartest one to use those letters - so cute. Have a lovely weekend.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Wow, Cindy, what great gifts to win. Especially the chocolates. : ) I like your new lamp look. Really creative and cute. Red for your chairs? Hmmm. Might be really fun. Or a soft aqua? I know you have both colours as accents in your home. Can't wait to see them. Enjoy the weekend. Hugs, Pam

Blessings and have a great weekend.

Congrats on winning! I know that clip looks lovely in your hair...and who doesn't love chocolates?!

That lamp is so the letters spell anything or are they random?
Hmmm...painting the chairs red, sounds fun!

as always, enjoy! Pat

Anne said...

Congratulations!! I'm so pleased for you!

I don't know what it is lately, but I am in love with red! It's been coming on so gradually, I didn't really pick up on it until a few months ago. Go for it, paint that table red!!

Have a lovely weekend!

I think that hair clip is perfectly you. Good job on the lamp too. I think it's definitely a keeper! Painting your chairs red would be just the thing to brighten these gray days. I say go for it!

Chandra said...

Hello! I'm so glad that you were able to comment on my blog! I've been browsing through all of your blog posts because I'm looking for inspiration for our new home. We are moving this weekend and it's a cute little 2 bedroom 1 bath here in the Bay Area and I am excited to decorate. We have been living in a house since we were married, but we knew that another move would happen, so I didn't spend too much time decorating.

I like the idea of painting the tables and chairs red! A friend of mine recently painted one of her old tables red and it looks perfect.

Have a great Monday, Cindy!

More Modern Modesty
