A Winning Day


I got a package in the mail last week, and when I opened it, look how prettily it was wrapped! I just had to photograph it before I even unwrapped it! It was this beautiful bolster pillow!! I won it in a blog giveaway  my friend Sandie, over at Chatty Crone, had. Well, I didn't actually win it! Marydon over at Blushing Rose won it, but she gave it to me!! This was such a sweet thing for her to do. And Sandie even included this sweet gold stone with a special saying on it meant just for me!  You can see why I wanted this pillow, it matches so many things in my house, I have this color in a lot of rooms.  Here are a few places I can put it! And I will be putting it places for decoration, because it is entirely too pretty to lay my head on!



“A huge storm came up. Waves poured into the boat, threatening to sink it. And Jesus was in the stern, head on a pillow, sleeping! They roused him, saying, "Teacher, is it nothing to you that we're going down?"
 Awake now, he told the wind to pipe down and said to the sea, "Quiet! Settle down!" The wind ran out of breath; the sea became smooth as glass. Jesus reprimanded the disciples: "Why are you such cowards? Don't you have any faith at all?"
 They were in absolute awe, staggered. "Who is this, anyway?" they asked. "Wind and sea at his beck and call!" 
Mark 4

That is a really pretty pillow. I like the close up view in your header showing the pattern, it looks hand stitched.

How nice of Marydon to send it to you and include the gold stone.

Ginny, don't forget to stop by and leave a comment on the iPad2 contest post (Monday). There are also instructions on how to get more entries.

The bolster, is it for your back when you sit down? The traditional Chinese have a big bolster on the bed.

Ann said...

Where did you get the tea glasses? They are good except I wish they were bigger.

Yes, the money plant is a succulent.
