I Won the Home and Heart Giveaway...here it is in pictures...

I won the Home and Heart giveaway "Hands of Friendship" necklace; but it was so much more...  Jody made receiving my package a gift in itself.  From the outside package wrap to unfolding each layer of gifts tucked inside and then another behind that, until I got to the actual prize itself... the necklace.  I have never taken so long to open a gift and what pleasure it brought me, especially when I must admit that I was sick with the flu and feeling rather down.  But I won't go on any more about what treasures my package had; I will show you. I took pictures every step of the way to let you see what I saw as I opened my package from Jody at Home and Heart...

The outside box was decorated with this sweet girl!

Upon opening the outside box, I found a lovely box hand decorated with lots of sparkles, a decorated envelope, and a nice package of black napkins.

Inside the envelope was a handmade card with a sweet not from Jody, behind that was some black checked file dividers wrapped with a ribbon and charms...sensing a theme??  


Inside the beautiful hand decorated box was a black crinkle tissue tied with black ribbon, a flower and a beaded hat pin.

And inside that little package was this fabulous little handmade pocket with buttons, bows, glitter, papers, tulle, and beaded trim, ready to hang all by itself!!



Here's a close up... there are even beads on the wire handle!  Sweet!!


And tucked inside the pocket was this special gift...made by Jody!  Isn't it beautiful??

I want to thank Jody again for having such a wonderful giveaway and express how honored I am for winning. I will never forget it and will cherish my gifts.  May you find your gifts in unexpected ways this week.. through a friend's call, a child's laughter, a beautiful sunrise or sunset, or in whatever comes your way.

Blessings,
Cindy
