Thoughtful Bloggers

Many times I come across giveaways throughout blogland and I don't enter.  I think, I never win, so why bother entering?

I've already done a post of two great giveaways that I've won this year.  Shockingly, I've got a few more to share with you.  

I won this fantastic giveaway from Linda at A La Carte.


Linda's package was full of goodies, I felt like a kid at Christmas opening each one! Everything is so bright & colorful & matches my kitchen so nicely.  I love it all!

My next win was from Creative Carmelina.   Before I show you what I won, would it be weird if I shared the hand made envelope it arrived in? 


Pretty amazing for an envelope, right?  I thought it best to smudge addresses.  Here is what I won:


These Pride & Prejudice buttons were drawn by hand by Carmelina.  She is incredibly talented.  I'm a big Jane Austen fan, so I couldn't be happier.  Who doesn't love Mr. Darcy? 

Next up, Leslie at A Spoonful of...Everything had a sweet giveaway.

Her giveaway was for a pair of earrings.  She also included this sweet little ornament.  Perfect for my feather Easter tree.


Here's a close up of the earrings so you can read them better. 


Adorable or what?   I think they pretty much sum up how most of us feel about this little community we're a part of. 

I just wanted to share all of these with you and send a shout out to Linda, Carmelina and Leslie.  Thank you all so much!  I appreciate your thoughtfulness.  Blogland is filled with the most generous and kind people, truly it is.  If you aren't familiar with these blogs, go on over & take a look.  I don't think you'll be disappointed. 

I think it may be getting time for me to have a giveaway of my own so that I can pay all this forward.  What do you think?
