I'm a Lucky Girl!

Oh my gracious, how lucky I am!  I was thrilled to learn that I won the beautiful blog candy offered by Connie on her blog, Wax Beach Artist.  I admired the wonderful hand-made box when I saw it on her blog, but let me tell ya, in real life, it is out of this world gorgeous! 

Her package arrived beautifully decorated on the outside, with stamps, vintage images, and fun tapes!  I opened it up to find the gorgeous box and this wonderful vintage style tag.

 

Wow!  Then I open the box to reveal this beautiful seaside image on the inside lid.....

What a marvelous, serene landscape.  So beautiful.  And the fun didn't stop there, because stuffed inside was more fun....
Seashells, glass beads, flowers, lace, and wonderful coppery trim that already has me thinking of sea coral and mermaids and wonderful summery projects!  Connie, YOU ROCK!!!  Thank you so very, very much!  What a delight to receive your gorgeous artwork.

Happy New Year, everyone!  We will be sound asleep as the new year rolls in, trying to get lots of rest for our marathon volleyball tournament weekend!  Wouldn't have it any other way. ;)
