I'm a winner

It seems that for the past few months I have been on a winning streak in the blogging world. I have won 4 blog giveaways. Note to self, buy a Lotto ticket. So for Three or More Tuesday, hosted by the fabulous Tam at The Gypsy's Corner, I thought that I would share them with you. Not literally share them, I'm not that generous. I'll just let you look at the pictures.

In September I won 2 sets of Candy Lights from Pale Pink and Roses blog. Have you seen Candy Lights? They are fabulous. The ends have been dipped in silicone. I had my choice of pink, blue or white. Since I figured that white goes with everything, I picked the white ones. I've already opened up one of the packages, that is why I am only showing one strand of lights.

Hint: They will be showing up in my Christmas decorating. They will be perfect!!!

In October Cheri over at Its So Very Cheri had a huge giveaway. Her sponsors gave away some fabulous items. I won one of the giveaways sponsored by "M" over at Tales From An OC Cottage. It was exactly the giveaway I wanted to win. How about that?
I got this beautiful dish with pink roses (I love pink roses!!!). As well as 2 glittered pencil starfish, some tags and German glass glitter. I was in heaven with this win. Now I need something to glitter. Any volunteers?

Also back in October I won this book from Keelie over at Red Writing. She's been running a Twelve Weeks of Christmas blog party aka: TWOC. This was her week 2 giveaway. The authors of A Scrapbook of Christmas Firsts made this giveaway possible.
I really need to sit down with this book now that Christmas is fast approaching. And I've been bad at participating in TWOC. I guess I am now on Santa's naughty list. If anyone wants to participate there is still 4 more weeks. Just head on over to Red Writing's blog to get the scoop. Each week has a different theme. This week is wreaths. But since I don't have a Christmas wreath I'm not participating. Well, I have a wreath, it's just that it is still up in the attic and it won't be down until next week. And I looked through my photos of Christmas decor from last year and I guess I didn't take a photo, so that means I can't participate this week. Boo hoo!

Then way back in July I won this garden angel from Cindy at My Romantic Home. It was donated to Cindy's giveaway by Jen at Vintage Home Interiors.
I still haven't found the right place for her. But she'll fit in perfect for Christmas.

Then if winning giveaways wasn't enough, Cindy over at Stitches-N-Stuff sent me all of the following for no reason other than I left a comment on her blog. She knew I love black & white so she made all of this for me out of the goodness of her heart. Isn't she wonderful? I wish I was as generous. But I'm not. What can I say? I'm not perfect.

Look at this nice note she included. I hope you have enjoyed seeing all my goodies. I know I have enjoyed winning or receiving them. Be sure to visit all the blogs that I've mentioned. They are all terrific.

And I am working on my own little giveaway. I'm hoping to get it posted this Thanksgiving weekend. Since I now have more than 100 followers, I knew it was tradition to host a giveaway. I should have done it a few weeks back when I reached 100 followers, but you know me, I procrastinate. And now it's up to 150 followers. Gee whiz I am so excited!!!

So check back later in the week for my giveaway.
