My Sweet Prize & Eye Candy for You

Just look at what I received in the mail.
All the way from Germany
and Sweet Alexandra's Cottage-Dreams blog.
This was the OWOH prize I won.
Get ready for some creative and wonderful cuteness!!

Sweetly wrapped keys and lace.

Little flowers tucked here and there.

A bright and cheery Spring card.


I hear your oooh's and aaah's now.
Isn't she lovely beyond words?
A sweet little lavender sachet.

And lovely old tin types.
I love them all!!
Can it get any better?
Yes, a sweet little box filled with silver charms.


And a beautiful little pillow all trimmed with lace and sweetness.
Are you lovin' it yet?


And here it all is.....
A dream package from a lovely lady across the ocean.
Oh, one more thing.
See the black book in with all those lovely treasures?
It is a German Bible!

And you know how I love Bibles!

and even inscriptions in the front of it.

This was a package full of surprises and sweetness.
Thank you so much Alexandra!!!

If you have not been to her blog, please go visit.
It is filled with beauty and delightful treasures.
(and she has an ETSY site too!)


blessings to all
