A Beautiful Win

Hi, Everyone 
I was blessed to win a SURPRISE from a blogger....



I just LOVE it when my postman rings my doorbell and there's a box......on my porch swing.

(Since it's an election year, I will keep my RED, WHITE and BLUE colors on my porch until WINTERTIME...)
 I will always stand behind my beloved country, the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA....and flaunt her colors every single chance I get.








I love the cute stickers she placed on the package.....

Some people are just so goood at this...:)
 ...gorgeous wrapping and decorating...
rose, french wrapping paper, black netting...



....what an adorable tag...

After Thanksgiving, I may just try my hand at making pretty tags...

I just love all of it....
My heart starts beating a little faster at this point....
just before I pull that top piece of tissue paper aside and take a peek
at what's inside....
O MY.....handpainted Christmas Tree Decorations....
roses....so beautiful



PINK and roses....
sparkles and pink ribbons.

Just beautiful.

Thank you so much dear CELESTINA......

I just love every one of them.

What an amazing artist you are.









How in the world can she paint such lovely roses...?
....because God blessed her with
THE TALENT...:))

I am thrilled with all the sparkle...
Christmas time SHOULD have a lot of sparkle 
Dear Blogger friends, you should stop over at Celestina's pretty blog and take a look at all the beautiful eye candy.
You'll be glad you did...

Celestina has the most beautiful give aways. You are right her packaging is gorgeous! I was blessed to have won a while back!
I have been meaning to do some shopping at her online store. Life has got in my way and it seems I never get a chance to browse. But I most definitely plan to shop in her sweet etsy soon.

I so hope you enjoy your ornaments and thank you for entering and helping me celebrate 5 years of blogging. It has been a blessing to meet the many wonderful friends like you. It is truly a gift.

Oh wow! Oh wow! Oh wow!

The package! Inside the package! Oh wow! What a wonderful surprise. Love it alllllll.

And Pink and Sparkle. How can you top that? :-))))))))))

Claudia said...

Gorgeous. Beautifully wrapped and beautifully painted. Did you know that Celestina and I grew up just blocks away from each other? We didn't realize it until I wrote about a childhood ritual of visiting Santa at our local department store and she recognized what store that was. Then we exchanged a flurry of email. We're only a few years apart and we went to the same schools!!! The blogging world is truly amazing.

Thanks so much for joining in this week, BJ!

Going to visit your friend to know her products. Thank you for sharing.

I am so jealous, but so happy for you. I wish God had chosen me to paint. But since he didn't I'm sure happy he chose many others, and they share! YEAH
