Finally!!! It's here, it's here.......

All my OWOH Prizes are in!!! Today I received the final one. In a previous post I showed off the lovely charm necklace from Deidre (Riley-Coyote). Now I can share them all! The incense from Alena (The Funky Fairy) It smells so good, (She mixed this blend especially for me), I can't bring myself to burn it. So maybe I will just keep it in my linen drawer for a sachet for now? From Alice (Inspired tokens). A big white box arrived, and you can see thru the window hints of the treasures it contains...... I placed it here with a few other goodies. Look at the wonderful detail in this pastel from Graham (Greywolf Art). The soft shading, and light capturing a tender moment, (I need to go and get this portrait matted and framed). The white box, containing my prize from Alice (Inspired Tokens). All nicely wrapped in lavender tulle, first thing I noticed was a wonderful scent coming from it. Then as I spied through the window on the lid I saw the book and shawl I had entered to win. The shawl is lovely, such beautiful workmanship. I opened the book cover to read the jacket notes inside. I had to make myself stop reading, it looks like a very good story, and I wanted to take photos of everything first. Alice had written a nice note in the little Engelbright card enclosed. This was the prize I had entered to win......... but wait, what was this? Another little package. It wasn't posted in the giveaway? I have to say I loved the pretty colors, and now I could tell where the lovely scent was coming from. BONUS!!!!! The sweetest fabric Tussie-Mussie cone was inside. The package with the lovely lady on it is filled with scent and now hangs here in my studio filling the air with fragrance. Such a pretty bejeweled gift in shades of greens and pinks, and wait did you see it? The wooden "stick pin" to hold my shawl in place, how sweet is that? So here are my winnings from Alice, all together. (I know, a real jackpot haul from all these artists) I want to thank, one more time, Graham (http://greywolf-art.blogspot.com/) the Pastel. Deidre (http://rileycoyotecreations.blogspot.com/) Domino Necklace, Alice (http://inspiredtokens.blogspot.com/) Shawl, Book Tussie, and last, but not least Alena (http://www.funkyfairyshoppe.com/) Incense. I was very, very lucky and really appreciate the hard work these artists put into their creations. To Lisa Swifka, thank you for being such a diligent host. To all that gave of your time and craft, may we the "winners" appreciate the thought, care, and love that goes into these "gifts", may we take the time to thank those who have shared with us. Please take a minute to check out their blogs, see their work, and leave a comment for them!

Oh Debra, I am soooo jealous! I love them all! You are such a lucky girl! I couldn't pick a favorite...they are all absolutely beautiful!!!! I'd wrap myself in the shawl, read the book, stop and glance at the portrait while surrounded by the wonderful fragrance! Oh I am so jealous! But so happy for you!

I can't believe you won so many prizes. I entered about 400 and didn't win anything :( I am so jealous :)
Seriously though congratulations on your prizes. Just came over from the Carnival Soiree. Hope you are having fun there.
