PINK SATURDAY and a BEAUTIFUL GIVEAWAY WIN.....

Awhile back, our PINK SATURDAY host, BEVERLY, had a fabulous giveaway...
AND I WON !!
WOO HOO
**
The prize ?
These beautiful dolls...
The SWEETEST things !!
Thanks so much, Beverly....I just love them!
**
Beverly included these cute little feathered friends..
They feel right at home here at Sweet Nothings...
There's roosters and hens all over the place.
**
Bev also included this adorable, vintage chicken toy...
When you squeeze the blue, metal handle, the chickens take turns pecking their food from the metal feeder..
It's so cute...
***

Here....take another look at this ADORABLE PAIR !!
**

When I made mention in a CHRISTMAS post that I had only 3 angel bells left from a set of 10 or 12 that belonged to my mother,
Beverly told me she had the set and 3 extras that had belonged to HER mother...she added them
to my already overflowing package....
All of these things she sent me belonged to her mom...and I can't even find the right words
to express how grateful I am that she gave them to me.....
THANK YOU SO MUCH, BEVERLY...
I will take such good care of them all...
(I saw Deeds look at those dolls in a really LOVING way....:O)...
Her 8th birthday is SUNDAY, Jan. 10th....

I'm just sayin'................

Hello BJ!
Oh my goodness, what lovely little dolls, I'm so glad that you won!!!
I am also noticing the pretty floral bedding behind the dolls,
pretty!
Thanks for coming over to visit me and comment on my post. You are so funny. I hope you find those fleur-de-lis rub ons so you can get some sleep.
Maybe I should have just pretended that I did paint those on, and everyone would think I'm such a great artist!!LOL
Love ya girl!!

sissie said...

Oh no, I forgot to tell you that I love the chickens. And, that's so precious that Beverly was kind enough to send you the angels.
And from her Mother's collection at that. She is just the greatest!

Betty said...

Those dolls are just so cute. And I agree the roosters look right at home. She must be one sweet lady, of course I know the recipient is!

nannykim at spindlecottage said...

You surely received a lot of stuff! Those dolls remind me of some my sister had when we were little. But hers had another doll body under the skirt--so it was two dolls in one!

Jeanette said...

The dolls are too cute! And you are right the roosters are right at home.

Congratulations. I love those little angels. Glad she passed the good stuff along to you. BTW, if you have a Cracker Barrel near you, and you collect roosters, please make a point to go and take a look @ their rooster collection for spring. It's gorgeous!

I think those homeless dolls found a wonderful poem. This was a fantastic win. I, by the way, think those chickens are darling. Have a great Pink Saturday.

I adore those chickens and the dolls. To think they belonged to dear Beverly' mom, how special you are.
I couldn't think of anyone more deserving of these treasures. I know they will be happy with you B.J.
Happy PS
Love Claudie

P.S. I'm not participating this week. Maybe next.

SmilingSally said...

Beverly was quite generous to you, but you are so very deserving. Congratulations on your win. I hope that you're staying warm; I'm struggling with these temperatures. This morning was 37ยบ. They're using the "s" word when predicting the weather for tomorrow! Brr.

Stopping by from SITS! My grandmother used to have bells like that.

Kathleen said...

Sweets for the Sweet!
Congratulations on such nice gifts!

Mary said...

Wowza, BJ! Beverly really blessed you with a bounty of gifts! The dolls in themselves are a super gift but the chickens and roosters? and the pecking chickens? Those are all keepsakes. Plus the angels from her Mother's collection to add to your Mother's collection...again, wow!
Happy Pink Saturday :)

♥Mimi♥ said...

I'm a day late and a dollar short☺ Was able to leave some messages for Pink Saturday yesterday and finishing up today. Over the holidays I was MIA from PS and really missed it but knew that I wouldn't be able to visit many blogs. I'm back today and must say that it feels so good to visit familiar places - like coming home again.

Today you made my little, pinkie ♥ smile. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely blog. Hoping this next week is filled with sunshine and the laughter of friends and family☺
