I really never win anything . . .
But this month has been exciting. I have won three wonderful giveaways; can you believe it? Neither can I :).

First . . . these beautiful handmade winter musical treasures from Alaina at Arbor House Lane

 I added an old silver candle holder under the tree, a few vintage ornaments and placed them on a tarnished silver tray with vintage buttons and had an instant Christmas vignette for our half table in the hall. 

A second giveaway win from Cindy at Cindy's Whimsical Musings, a wonderful blog friend I met a few months ago . . . 

A Victorian garland,
she also gave me one of her Victorian shoes,

and . . . 
I had been wanting one of her tussie mussies and
had her add this one from her etsy.

And, today (on my birthday!), I won a giveaway from Sabre' at Heirloom Gypsy, another beautiful new blog.  I'll post about it when I get it too!

Thank you so much ladies! You are all so sweet! 
Please go meet these wonderful, talented ladies.

With love and gratitude,

~ Julie
