I'm A Winner!!!

I guess you could say I've been on a bit of a winning streak lately.  As luck would have it, I was fortunate enough to win not one, not two, but three giveaways from three of my most favorite bloggers, which makes winning even sweeter.

The lovely Marla over at Always Nesting offered a $25 gift card to one of my fave places to shop, TJ Maxx!

And the always funny, always adorable BJ from Sweet Nothings offered a $60 gift card to CSN - WooHoo-ness!  Now, I just visited BJ's blog and she is offering ANOTHER giveaway to CSN!  So hurry yourself on over there to enter.  Just tell her Kim sent ya!

So I combined these two winnings to spruce up the bathrooms.  I bought this gorgeous vintage-looking towel rack from CSN.

It hard to tell from the pic, but this thing is HUGE!  Like you could do pull-ups on it huge.

I then used my TJ's gift card to add some towels and a lovely tassel as an accent.

A close-up of the monogrammed towels.

Here's how it looks all dressed up.

A total remodel of the master is in the works, so I dare not show you anything until it's done.  I don't want to scare you with it's current condition.

I also used my TJ's gift card to get a couple things for my girls' bathroom.

This wall pocket, which I will add some towels to for decoration.

And this sweet fishy tassel.

With the rest I got some filler for a container in my kitchen.

Didn't know there was such a thing as red pears??  Maybe they're just really hot.

And a little stand that I put next to my kitchen hutch.

Not sure what to put on it, maybe a small plant.

And finally, I was absolutely thrilled to win Rebecca's giveaway at A Gathering of Thoughts.  This gal is a true beauty, inside and out.  I just adore her blog and her sweet spirit.  Rebecca offered two vintage goodies from her store, A Gathering Place. Her gift came all wrapped up so pretty and included a sweet card.

Pretty pink bow and sweet sticker with her name and the initials of her store.

Rebecca made this sweet little pink pillow with the most amazing detail.

Love the little white polka-dots on the ruffle.

A view of the back.

A close-up of the label with the name "A Gathering Place" embroidered on it.  I'm telling you, lots of detail goes into her work.

And Rebecca hand-painted this sewing table drawer that fits perfectly into my cottage master suite.

I will fill it with some vintage linens and maybe some dried flowers.

Now if Baby Bliss turns out to be a girl, these beauties will most certainly make their way into the new nursery.

A million thanks to my sweet friends Marla, BJ and Rebecca for your generosity in offering these wonderful giveaways.

You are most welcome!! and I'm thrilled about the baby news. That's so exciting. Truly a gift from God, this little one will light up your life. When my hubby was a teenager his family was gifted with a beautiful surprise baby. That baby girl was and is a joy (I adore her - she's wonderful) that has always been a delight.

You must be pinching yourself with all your wins! Congrats to you! Love that towel rack in your master bath. Also love the monogrammed towels AND that gorgeous tassle. Such a pretty look.

Oh yes, there are definitely red pears, but I also have the faux variety. I use them a lot in my faux floral arrangements I make. People love them for their addded color.
