Pretty Little Gifts

We live just 3 doors down the street from a fabulous second hand store. So, needless to say, the girls and I pop in there on a regular basis. My sweet Chelsea wandered in to rummage around a couple of days ago and came back with this darling birdhouse for her mama! She said she knew the minute she saw it I would love it. {I think the pink roses were her first clue! Plus ~ I do have a small collection of birdhouses.} Anyway, I do just love it!
This has been a week for pretty little gifts. First, my dear friend Amy showing up with the lovely tulips, then Chelsea bringing the birdhouse home and ... NEXT... It's MY TURN to be the gift giver. OOH! I just love to GIVE gifts. Especially when they're SURPRISES!!So~ let me remind all of you that tomorrow I will do a post and reveal the name of the winner in my first blog give away. I can hardly wait! I know I said originally I would put the names of those who commented on my 75th post into the drawing. But I'm actually going to include all the names from all the comments I've received on any post this week, in case any of my precious friends out there in The Land of Blog didn't see that particular post the other day.
Early in the week I laid aside all other current yarn creations and started working on a pretty little gift for one of you. I am ready to put a couple of final touches on {there will probably be some of my signature "blossoming" involved here!} so it will be ready for shipment by Monday.

After I announce the winner tomorrow I'll wait to get an e-mail telling me where to send the fun little package off to. Since I don't want to spoil the SURPRISE for the winner ahead of time, I will wait until after I know the package has arrived and then post a picture of the gift for all of you to see.
I have enjoyed making this gift so much that I'm going to do the same kind of thing again when I reach my 100th post, my first year anniversary, and maybe even every 50 posts! I mean, after all ~ it's my blog, my yarn & my time, so ~ I can do whatever I want!!!:-)
TaTa for now.
Don't forget to check in with me tomorrow to see which one of you I get to send this little surprise to!

What a beautiful birdhouse! Sometimes I think it's the unexpected gifts that are the most fun, since you had no idea they were coming your way.

Have a good weekend!

What a beautiful bird house. Those thrift store gifts and deals are the best! Isnt it great to get spring gifts? It reminds us that Spring will be ours soon. I know every-one has to have Spring fever right about now. The anticipation is killing me, to see to who that lucky blogger will be, but I am really anxious to see a photo of your secret creation! all be blessed, Kathy

How is it that Hillie & Chelsea always find such great things at that store? I need them to go there with me and point out all these goodies I miss!
