I WON! I WON! I WON A GIVEAWAY! Wait til you see THIS!

Several weeks ago 
I threw my name into the hat 
at
for a sweet 
Jeanne d'Arc bag.

I told Sissie I had the 
PERFECT outfit to wear with it..
IF I won!
She probably thought-
yeah-right....

Well, I DID win
nanya nanya booboo-stick your head in doodoo
and I DO have the perfect outfit 
for this bag!

Here, my friends, is what I won!
HELLO GORGEOUS BAG!
Is that not one of the prettiest bags you have
EVER SEEN?

And- I DO have the outfit to match!
I know- things look kind of
BLAH--just hanging--but--
that is what you're getting!

Want to see more, do you?
I LOVE it, Sissie!
I REALLY LOVE IT!

What else do I have to go with it?
How about THESE pieces?
WHO does that OLD ARM belong to?
Certainly it can't be MINE!?
Oh- I am so thankful for this beautiful gift!
And..IF you don't know Sissie
you need to pop over to her blog right now.
She is just a love!
Yes!She!Is!

Thank you again, Sissie!

When my youngest daughter was here
I thought she was
EYEING UP my NEW BAG!
No you don't sister! You are NOT getting my bag!

I quickly diverted her attention by telling her
I was making 
VELVET pumpkins and asked her if she wanted a couple.
She said Yes!
She took ALL TEN of them.

Hmmm...I "might have" had a few
stashed out of sight!
How about you?
Do you give your kids the things they love?
Hmmm...know what else they love?
Wonder which one will end up getting
THAT PRIZE?????

  5. Too bad they don't want him on the days that he's bugging you too much , LOL. I'm guessing that your husband is a big tease; I know mine is, and there are days when he drives me crazy, LOL. Your outfit is beautiful, perfect for a wedding or celebrating an anniversary . . . maybe even Easter. So romantic:) Congratulations on your win!

  12. Congratulations! I thought of you yesterday when I passed a house with a blue light on instead of green. I had a whole vision of a color blind person with good intentions shopping at WalMart in a Diana post-worthy outfit. Maybe they are just a K Mart enthusiast.
    Also, I don't know if you remember me saying this like three years ago (the last time I tried to update my blog roll), but for whatever reason your blog will not show up. I tried to update it again a few days ago and I add your name and then it disappears. I think maybe one of your Walmart photos must have been of an underemployed Blogger engineer and he's holding a grudge.

  29. I really like your velvet pumpkins. So fun that they aren't orange. Congrats on your win. It is a darling bag. I don't think I'd have given it to my daughter either -- at least not til I'd used it myself a couple of times.

    ReplyDelete
  30. What a beautiful purse! Congrats on winning it, and you did pick a good outfit to go with it! Glad you were able to "divert" your daughter's attention from your purse to the pumpkins--you can always make more if she does find your hidden stash. ;)

  36. My jaw dropped seeing that bag. Seriously it is the prettiest bag I have ever seen in my life - and yes yes yes you most certainly DO have the perfect outfit to go with it. Just WOW.

    As for dd's taking things, absolutely - my youngest calls it "shopping at Mamma's." LOL. Now my eldest never really does much - she just is in "purge" mode and now has been joking about her little sister "shopping for junk" in her take-now-or-forever-be-silent-cuz-you-didn't-grab-it-before-it-was-donated pile. Ah, the circle of life is refreshing, is it not?

    Thing is to be honest? That youngest of mine uses our stuff in the grandest of ways - I swear they could write a book about her, she is so danged clever with design and repurposing and re-using things in such a fabulous way!

    Finally: YOUR VELVET PUMPKINS ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!! Haha, she took all ten. Heh, glad you had some stashed. ♥ You're no fool.

  40. Well I'll be darned....your outfit looks like it was begging for that bag!!!! I was excited when I pulled your name out of the hat but now I am just blown away!!! I'm loving that dress and your bracelet. You are going to look hot Mama!
    If I had a daughter she would probably talk me out of everything I own. I know that my Sister usually does. Now I would have taken a bunch of those pretty pumpkins...can't blame her!

    Thanks for the feature Diana, you are so sweet.

  61. Your new bag is so pretty! I really love it with the top you shared. I love feminine clothing like that. One of my favorite tops is a sheer cream top with a ruffle along the bottom and I love it paired with jeans and boots. i also love your handmade velvet pumpkins!

    ReplyDelete

  62. I think..you were the perfect one to win that lovely unique handbag! Adorable. Yes, I know of Sissie. I never got to know her but loved her Shabby Chic decor and bought a few of her floral arrangements with bunnies one year. :) I bought three of those sweet little velvet pumpkins to add to my collection this year. Love 'em.
    Big hugs,
    Mona

Aren't you sweet for parting with your pumpkins - yes, my kids are always walking out with something.....just like you I keep trying to get them to give their dear old Dad a home, but no takers. Every time I read your posts I have to laugh out loud and I scare the dogs :) Hope your weekend is relaxing, sweet girl. x Karen

  66. It would have been criminal if anyone had won that bag but you! Perfect for your outfit. I'm not surprised your daughter wanted all 10 of the pretty pumpkins. I would have liked a few of those myself.

  67. That bag is so pretty!

    My daughter and daughter-in-law don't share my love of homemade things so if they ever ask for anything I have made, I give it to them.
