Giveaway Wins and Kaci's Art!

Look what I won from the Rocky Mountain Woman! She had a giveaway last month and I was the lucky winner. Two great bags and a cute magnet bought at her local Farmers Market.  These bags are bigger than they look and I have enjoyed using them for my shopping and for taking snacks to Gretchens house many times. If you have not been to RMW site your missing out on a her writing, recipes and a great home she is building.

Another awesome giveaway was held by Kim at Millie's Mats and yep I won it too. I know I am on a lucky streak....well when it comes to giveaways that is. hahaha
Kim gave away one of her beautiful mats that she hooks and I can't believe I now have one in my home to enjoy. It is a starfish and is beautiful!
This mat is made so well by Kim that the back is almost as pretty as the front.

Thank you both for choosing my name and sending me such wonderful gifts. I love them both.

Another piece I love is my granddaughter Kaci's picture she painted of my furry sidekick Tinkerbell.
Kaci is nine years old and loves to paint.

What amazes me about this picture is the markings on the cat she painted for me are so just like Tinkerbells. I am now the lucky owner of another one of Kaci's one of kind art.  Life is good.

Here I was trying to get Kaci to wake up for you but she raised up and fell back down. Out like she had a rough day like her mom did. lol

Would you believe that my day was receiving ugly text all day from my nephew about me wanting him to clean my house. I finally turned my phone off but not before he totally ruined a beautiful fall day. He insist the house is clean. His dad told my brother Billy that it was as clean as it was going to get. So.....

Tomorrow my plans are to get up early and over to that house and Clean and Clean some more.
Thanks for all of your comments. I am trying to catch up with all of you and your wonderful sites.
Love to all

WOOT WOOT! I love visiting RMW and hope to someday get to meet her. We do live in the same state:) The rug is awesome too and takes a lot of work, my mom did that for awhile. Seems you just need to move on with the filth thing. Just remember, the Karma bus runs over all deserving souls..either direction. Have a good week.

Shirley said...

Maggie, Congratulations on your winnings. Please don't over do and get yourself down again. You know some people you can show a picture proving your point and they would still insist they were right and you were wrong. I am a firm believer there is a reckoning day for people like your nephew. It just may take a little time. Just remember if he or his family needs or wants anything from you in the future the answer is NO!!!.You just need to bring Ms Paarl out where he is concern. Take care of yourself. Thanks for visiting my blog. Hugs Your Missouri Friend.

Well, haven't you been a lucky girl? I absolutely love the starfish rug! Congratulations on your fantastic wins.

Sorry you're still cleaning up after the looters ransacked your place. Getting on with your life is the best revenge...for you AND Miss Pearl.

Hugs, Honey.

I'm rubbing my hand over your blog so maybe some good luck will come off toward my house! So far just dust off the screen and a reminder that I should do some house cleaning too! Great wins and beautiful art from Kaci...don't forget to frame it!

KACIE!! That is just the cutest picture of Tinkerbell! That picture makes me so happy!

Debbie said...

Oh I just love that pic of Tinkerbell that your grand daughter painted. That would be framed and hung for sure in my house!!
Wow, what a lucky lady you are for winning!!
Don't wear yourself out cleaning. If he didn't want to clean it, he could at least hired a cleaning service for a day. Not that expensive!!

God Bless~

Ingrid said...

Hi Maggie ... please tell Kaci that I think her painting of Tinkerbell is wonderful. I am an impressionist painter and I think Kaci's impression of Tinkerbelle is spot on. Look forward to sharing life with you. :)

AS for your nephew, pictures don't lie. The place was a disaster.
Please don't over do Maggie.

Wow you are on a lucky streak indeed, lucky you! I have posted the art journal you won on my giveaway so hopefully that may be you'll have something nice to come back to after all your cleaning (though with our mail system I wouldn't entirely bet on it lol so please let me know when it arrives safely) I do hope you like it, much love Jenny x

My Grama's Soul said...

Glad you won all these giveaways......your luck is changing......and I so agree with Jake......KARMA can be real nasty sometimes. LOL



mumsysramblings said...

Nice things you won sweet Maggie and the picture Kaci painted is terrific.

Tinkerbell was really snoozing. Too cute!

I am so sorry about the house and I hope that you have not over-done working there to get it all cleaned up. Wish I was nearby so I could help you. It is sad that your nephew would do that to you.

Dan said...

You are on a lucky streak!!! Everything you won is wonderful! I love Kaci's picture too! I think it is wonderful!

I have been thinking of you and hoping that you are doing well!

Love Ya,

Darlene said...

Wonder just what is causing your lucky streak??? I could use some of it, that's for sure.

That starfish rug is absolutely beautiful. I'm sure you are enjoying it a lot.

You know what? I think your nepheu really feels he cleaned the house. I hate to think what it would have looked like had he not "done his best" don't you? Some people just really don't know how to properly clean. He might have tried his best.

I'm leaving in just a week for Dallas, I wish I had another week to get ready.
