A Lucky Day!

The other day, I was doing one of my favorite things...reading a great book!

Then, the postman delivered this...

How wonderful!  I won a giveaway from Le Monde de Catherine, who lives all the way in France!  When I opened the box, I was in awe of all the wonderful things...a lovely lace top, a beautiful embroidered doily, a perfumey sachet, and a set of extraordinary french postcards!  Thank you, Catherine!

And then, the doorbell rang... It was my mother-in-law, who was stopping by to give me her eight crystal wineglasses!

How lucky am I?  Now wouldn't it be grand if I  mysteriously received a million dollar check next??? Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend!
