I Love Giveaways!!

Don't you just love receiving LARGE boxes from the mailman? Well, my mail lady came today carrying a very LARGE box and I was thrilled and so excited to open it up. I won a giveaway right before I left for the beach from Beth. I visit her blog quite frequently and I must say that she is some pro at thrift store shopping. Well, my winning are as follows........ uh, ya know it might be easier for me to just show you some pictures. Afterall, she had so many goodies in my box and to be quite honest, it would be easier for me to show you them. Let me first of all tell you that she sent me a Dunkin Donuts giftcard. Mmmm, yummy!! Who doesn't love donuts?!? I know that there is nothing better then a good donut every now and again. Here are pictures of the rest of my goodies.
Can you believe everything that she included? I just kept unwrapping things and my husband was wondering if she robbed the thrift store (lol). I just couldn't believe everything that was included. Don't forget that you can click on a picture to get a closer look. She did a few make-overs on a couple things........ the black plate in the middle was a make-over. She painted it black and stenciled it for me. Don't you love it? She also painted the spoon rack which I really love and the picture at the top she painted the frame and coffee/tea stained the cross-stitching picture. She just sent me so many goodies and I really have no idea what is my favorite.
I will tell you that I love the little pewter pitcher right there in the middle of the above picture. That definitely caught my eye as soon as I unwrapped it. I already had a spoon holder, but I still had to re-finish it and now I don't have to since I have the one Beth sent me. Great news is that I was going to paint mine black and when she sent me this one...... I was so giddy!! This one is in much better shape then mine!! Thanks Beth : )
I am thinking about re-finishing the wood bowl, but I haven't totally determined what color yet. Gotta love the candy holder and the mason jar light!! I need to find a little lamp shade for it and then add something in the jar to give it a more prim look. Any suggestions on what I should put in the jar?
Here is a close-up of some little towels that she sent me. She coffee-tea stained the one in the middle for me. Don't you love them? Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing all of my goodies? I know I had a GREAT time opening it all up!! So, what is your favorite? Do you have one?

My fav is the sampler...actually I have a couple more:) the pin keep and also the pewter pitcher!

I've been doing jar lamps since the early 90's...I've used patriotic popcorn from a country store in St. Charles Mo. and I still do..not popped just the kernels... rag balls...clothes pins, wood spools and those little red thingys I can't remember the name of them as of now:)
