You've Got Mail: My Blog Giveaway Prize Arrived!

I was so excited to go to my local post office today. My blog giveaway prize from Dana Biddle of Colour Spun is here all the way from South Africa.

The prize is a spring blossom garland of handmade felt flowers. The colours are cheerful and warm.

Modelling this lovely garland is my cat who looks more cute in it than me.


The stamps on the shipping envelop caught my eye. These birds of South Africa are amazing.


Of course, South Africa is in the news because of the World Cup of Soccer. This prize from South Africa is all round cool!

Dana has instructions on her blog for the garland if it strikes your fancy to make one.

Happy Days!

So pretty. I'm a little jealous since I've never won a giveaway before. I love getting mail though.

Thanks for visiting my blog!! If you get hooked on the spinning like I did, you should look into the Babe wheels. That's what I got, and I love it! Plus I love that I didn't have to totally break the bank to get it. :)
