A Little Surprise

A little bit ago Staci at Life At Cobble Hill Farm was holding a giveaway. Just leave a comment and if you won, you got all the lovely things in the picture above - which are all handcrafted items from her corner of the world.

Well, I entered and then promptly forgot about it. Come last Saturday though, I see on her blog that I am the winner! One of her lovely hens did the honors and picked my name from the bowl.

I'm sharing this with you because not only was it a wonderful surprise to get this in the mail today, but I wish - oh how I wish - I could convey to you the heavenly smell that came from the box upon opening it. The mint scented and lemon verbena soaps together are to die for. In fact, I wish I could invite you all over just to wash your hands. It's all so wonderful. I'll be enjoying these gifts greatly.

A very cute touch

Thank you so much Staci (and Kessa the hen)!

Hooray!!! Glad you received them ok. Meg (the chicken) is still a little bummed that she didn't win, but the worms that are coming out with the rain is helping her cheer up. :) Kessa can't wait for the next giveaway so she can pick again (and get more freeze-dried meal worms for pay). Enjoy!!! (heat up some of the fudge sauce and dip fruit or pour over ice cream!!)

Congratulations, Meg! I never win anything, especially not whole baskets of things that smell good.

Kessie said...

Soap? Earrings? Hot fudge sauce? And it's all homemade?

Maybe I should start entering blog giveaways!

Meg said...

Ooooh you guys. I couldn't help my self and just stuck my finger straight into the fudge.

Oh. my. gosh. BEST STUFF EVER. I'm debating whether I'll actually share, or just hide it away for myself... Muahahaha.

Oh how nice and aren't bloggers just the best and isn't it so nice to get a box in the mail.
I need to think about a give a way soon. They are just as much to give.
I can't wait to smell it.

Dearest Lea,

I'm sorry, I've been terribly remiss with the zombies. My zombie-creating juices are still not flowing again from the last time. Maybe soon! ;)

I've had all kinds of invitations before, but this is the first time I've ever been invited over to wash my hands!!

Blessings, Debbie

How sweet... and FUN to win a giveaway. It is the most delightfully odd feeling to know your name was picked, and someone (in my mind) counters all the times I was the last to be "picked" for a team in elementary school P.E., knowing full well I was just the leftovers! ;)

Yay for natural soap!!
