A Winner, A French Bucket and Some Cool Rosettes!

Okay, finally I am posting the winner of my giveaway! Please accept my sincerest apology. My intentions were good I promise, I actually did the random number generator first thing this morning but never got around to actually announcing the winner.

All because of this!
Yep, almost a foot of the white stuff. School has been cancelled for the past two days and I haven't been able to get much of anything done.
However, better late than never I guess. Sorry to keep you all in suspense all day.

On to the winner...I used the random number generator to pick a winner and it chose lucky

Yay~~ Kathleen from Faded Charm was the winner!!
Congrats Kathleen!!

Thank you all so much for playing the guessing game with me. It was fun and just about every one of you guessed it correctly. The mystery photo was a bunch of berry baskets all stacked up. I think I'll have to make it harder next time!!

Okay, so as you know, I kept the giveaway prize a secret as well.
Kathleen? You wanna know what you have won???
~ A {fabulously faux} grainsack pillow slipcover hand made by me~
It will fit any standard size pillow

~a couple of those berry baskets~
~a heart shaped, lavender filled rice pillow that can be popped in the microwave to warm it up~
{perfect for snuggling on the couch on these chilly winter nights}
and last but not least
~a cute ruffly bag with a fun handmade rosette~
{which you will see below}
oh, and there is also some yummy hand lotion packed inside a fun little Parisian themed box!
I apologize that the additional items are not pictured. I will post them soon enough. It's just been a bit hectic and I haven't been able to get them photographed yet.
Thanks so much everyone for playing! I enjoyed it.
Kathleen, email me when you get a free minute with your contact info and I will get your goodies right out to you.

Okay, next on the list...the french bucket and the little flowers I had been working on.

Aren't they adorable? And so easy too. I'll add all the details in another post in the next day or two.

and here is the bucket . I will post a full tutorial in the next day or two so stay tuned!
Thanks again everyone for reading and visiting.
xo and God Bless,

Yeah!! You just made my day. And how did you know I need another pillow.

Thanks so much and I enjoy all your projects you share. I thought I had you on my sidebar, but I guess I come here through your WW posts. I'll add it now and will email you my address.
