A Warm and Wonderful Giveaway Win in the Mail...

I'm back from a little break celebrating a wonderful Christmas with my family! Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my last post, which revisited some Christmas memories...lots of new ones were made this year, too!

Recently, I had a wonderful giveaway win from talented Amy of Vintage Marketplace!  The package was wrapped so prettily, it was a prize in itself...I almost didn't want to open it!  But I knew what was beneath the wrappings and proceeded carefully...

And inside... just look at this work of cozy goodness...a lovely covered hot water bottle!  She crocheted a cover, and used vintage doilies to create this!  I think it is just beautiful!

It is incredibly soft cotton and so wonderful to cuddle up with, along with a cozy blanket!

She included this sweet Dick and Jane tag, the little pompom trim...

Amy has a wonderful ETSY shop full of her beautiful creations and her artwork has been featured in several magazines!  I hope you'll stop by to see her shop, and visit her blog!  I am SO happy to own this wonderful treasure!  Thank you so much, Amy!

Until next time...
