A Winner


Guess what??



I'm a winner!! Yes!!! I won a giveaway!!
So exciting to win, isn't it!

I can see how Vegas can lure a person in with the jingle jangle of the machines and excitement of the win! Actually, I've never been to Vegas so guess I am fibbing about that. I'm not really sure about the lure of Vegas, though I did think "The H*ngover was kind of funny . . . naughty too though!! Warning - do not watch that movie with young children close by!

Anyway, back to moi and my great win! Recently, I found Jess and Mr. Manhattan at Reclaimed Marketplace. They are the cutest young couple and have a wonderful website and blog! Their mission statement: " reclaimed products range from old to new, but they all carry a timeline; a heritage of stories." I love that -- especially since I do love old things!

I was the lucky winner of their first-ever giveaway -- lovely, lovely, lovely letterpress note cards from Hazel and Violet Ink! I picked the lemon -- the color is even more beautiful in real life. Truly, it's almost too pretty to use! I know, I know, that defeats the purpose, but would it be ok if I write myself a note so I can keep at least one? (Yes, I may have a bit of a hoarding issue!)

Thanks again Jess and Mr. M and Hazel and Violet!

Congratulations! Those cards are beautiful. It sounds like you are very much like me. I tend to hoard paper goods (i.e., wrapping paper, gift bags, note cards). I think they're so pretty I hate to give them away. ;-)

I have to admit I loved the Hangover too. It was hysterical! Definitely not for the kiddies to watch.

Congratulations Janet! What adorable cards! I love note cards, paper,stationary,etc. It's always fun to win a contest. Seems like I enter one whenever I get a chance. My husband thinks I am a bit sillywhenever I enter. Just this morning I found out that I was the winner of our dry cleaners anniversary giveaway! $150 credit toward my dry-cleaning! I don't think he will think I am so silly when I tell him about this one since he will be the primary beneficiary:) enjoy the rest of the week!

Oooh, what fun! Gorgeous cards - congratulations! I had to laugh...I've been to Vegas a couple times, and I'm too cheap to even put a quarter in the machine - ha! :-) And the nickel slots just don't do anything for me - LOL! :-) Have a great weekend too!
