Lady Luck

I just wanted to share my luck lately.  I was feeling giddy over my "prizes" and just couldn't keep it to myself.  First I won a giveaway from The Vintage Housewife.  She gave away a great movie I hadn't seen 'The Prize Winner of Defiance Ohio' (watch it!) she also sent along a couple of much appreciated bonuses.  What a sweetie!  I really like her.  Her blog makes me want to sit in her kitchen and visit over pie and coffee.
Bakelite Bebe over at Our Life in a Mint Chocolate Ranch awarded me with a blogger award.  I was honored she chose me as one of her favorite blogs.  The feeling is definitely mutual.  I am supposed to give it away to a couple of my fave blogs.  Hard to choose, but since I have to I chose Life In Wonderland and The Lady Choses.  LIW because she reminds me of someone I used to know and brings a shot of youth into my day, and TLC because I find her elegant with exquisite taste-and she also has started translating her page into English- and I like to pretend it is just for me!  We also have in common that we both have daughters and love a tattooer.
Then another surprise!  I ordered some baby bibs from Mommyboops at Etsy.  The bibs are great, but even better she sent a bonus one to say thanks for ordering with her.  Get this-it was a ruby slipper bib.  She didn't even know my baby was Dorothy!  Had I seen it I would have purchased it myself.  I am having to fight off being a little obsessive with the Wizard of Oz prints.  It hadn't occured to me before.  I think because I have been using polka dots for most of her things.  Now I have the inspiration to combine the two.  I haven't purchased the fabric yet as I still have a few projects to complete before I begin any new ones.  But keep an eye out!
This all has got me thinking of doing my own giveaway.  I am getting close to 100 followers so when I do (if I do)  I'll host a giveaway.  Well even if I don't, as soon as I come up with something I'll do one.
