Thank You Catherine!!!

How exciting! I just received my package from Catherine de the Cups, for being the winner on her very first giveaway!! Oh my gosh! Such fun things! Take a look! (By the way, it took every ounce of willpower I have to not just tear into it. I was a good girl, went slowly and took pictures along the way!)

Here it is all out of the box. What beautiful wrapping! Lots of fun ribbons and a sweet little fabric bag.

And tucked inside was . . . 


a beautiful pink runner with four rhinestone dangles on each corner. A wonderful little gold rimmed teacup. A box of yummy Hedleys Tea (can't wait to go downstairs and brew me a cup of that right away!) A darling ornament that is going right upon my Inspiration Board. 

And handmade notecards made by Catherine herself!

How very, very fun to win something so pretty, so unexpectedly! 
To hear the doorbell ring on a cold rainy day and find a gift!
And Catherine was just the best!
She is off for a romantic getaway weekend (well ... I'm assuming that's what it is - he he he) 

Thank you so much Catherine!!!! I will treasure each and every thing!!!

Hi Karen:
I came over from Dawnie's blog. I enjoyed reading your profile...I was raised in Southern Calif. My niece lives in Lake Arrowhead, not far from Big Bear.
I miss the beaches of Calif. and the winter weather!!!!

Karen, I'm SO HAPPY everything made it there safely! I know each and every item will be well loved on and well enjoyed. Pay it forward and share your tea with friends...and your tea cloth table topper will host many teas in the future, I'm sure. :) When you sip from her (your cup) lip, remember I'm only a blog away..you can enjoy your tea while catching up on what new French & Chic things I've found.. =) xoxo ~CC Catherine (By the way, my girlfriend Kathleen just gave me "The Shack"...so, I'm now going to read that as well. ;)

Congrats on your win.
My patient is doing fine and I am ready to send him back to work. He has a walking boot now and he is up constantly walking without his crutches and he isn't supposed to be. I can't make him be still.
