A few weeks ago, I was a lucky girl.  As a  person who hardly ever wins anything, I somehow won two giveaways within days of each other!

The first:

Kelly at Coastal Cottage Dreams was having a great giveaway.  She was giving away some art work letters.

Aren't they fantastic?

I had to take a close up shot of the letter "A".  I love it with the rusty old key attached to it, don't you? 

I haven't figured out where I will hang/display them yet, but I look forward to finding a place.  

If you aren't familiar with Kelly's blog, Coastal Cottage Dreams, see here.  Kelly shares alot of pretty vignettes and excellent recipes on her blog.  She  is moving into a new home and I'm sure she will have a lot of home improvement projects on the way to inspire us all.        

The second:

Mariaelena of Cottage Living--from Beach to Burbs had a giveaway sponsored by Uncommon Linens.  I won a pillow & two lavender sachets. 

Aren't they wonderful?

Mariaelena has double the fun....a home & a beach cottage to decorate.  She is always sharing fantastic transformations and awesome projects.  She recently painted her kitchen cabinets and they are divine!  If you'd like to see what she's up to at Cottage Living--From Beach to Burbs, see here.   

Thank you Kelly, Mariaelena and  Kristin too.  You sure know how to make a girl happy!
