Thank you Jeanne!!!

My friend Jeanne at Backyard Neighbor had a give away last week. Lucky for me it was a six day give away. I had all but given up hope of winning when I woke up last week to visit her blog and saw that I was a winner. Today as I walked in the door from work I saw a package on the table and the phone was ringing. I answered the phone and heard Jeanne's voice for the first time. How nice it was to talk to her! I got to open the package with Jeanne on the phone with me!!

I'm sorry the pictures aren't the best. The lighting wasn't good but I was just too anxious to get the pictures to share with you. These are German glass ornaments. My son Tim is just beside himself with excitement! Ever since he learned our family was of German descent (among others) he has had a fascination with everything German! He honestly believes WE (notice he says we and not me!) won these because of our German heritage!




Jeanne also sent a package of post it notes. How cute are these?

And this little stacking Santa box is as lovely as can be!!! Even the tissue paper she sent them in was so pretty. I took this picture with the tissue paper behind it!

Thank you so much Jeanne. The ornaments will certainly be a treasure for years and years to come...as is your friendship.

If you haven't visited Jeanne before, please stop by her blog and say hello!

take care,
Dawn

Dawn, you are a genius. And, now Jeanne knows it, too. ;-) Wow! Exactly when was it you two spoke?

I am so glad you and Tim won these. They are just beautiful. And, you have to keep Tim "in touch" with his heritage.

Jeanne is a gracious lady. Tell Time that I'm almost half German! We can be friends.

You came to visit me early (as usual), but come back and check out the giveaways.
