I Won A Giveaway

I started blogging,
I don't think I ever
won a thing in my life.

Well...being the lucky 
stiff I am
I won another giveaway.

This one is from
Thank you SO much, Marti.
I really appreciate everything.
It was a fun package to open.

Her blog is 
Pop over and see her.
As the title suggests
she muses on things
both past and present....
memories of her childhood...
and things that are happening
around her now.

Here is what was in
the wonderful package I received.
There is a 
microwave blanket!
I guess I am out of it because
I never heard of these.
You can bake potatoes,
or corn or warm tortillas.
I made baked potatoes
and they were light and fluffy inside.
What else was in that sweet package?
A funky little knob...
A sachet kitty...
And a wonderful pack of 
6 handmade cards.
I thought this one was 
especially fun!
I already have a recipient in mind
for THAT card!

It is always fun to find 
a little something in the mailbox,
isn't it?
Watch YOUR mailbox...
YOU may be getting the card above...
to another-
Me to you!

Hope YOUR day is
full of sweet little surprises, too!

Congratulations on your win! Those are some very nice gifts!

Judy said...

Congratulations Diana! I quit entering those give aways on blogs because some of them seem a little suspiciously rigged to me...the same people winning over and over...but one time I did win something from Sherry at No Minimalist Here...I really like the blogs that post the random number winner, that way you know it's legit!


Susie said...

Wow Diana, I am a microwave queen and I have never heard of that cooking bag. I use my mw for baking potatos and warming. How handy that would be.Smiles, xo, Susie

Gina said...

Congratulations! Looks like a fun giveaway. Tell me you eat the baked potatoes or are they just for your hero?

Jettie said...

Wonder where I could get one of those blankets. I love fluffy baked taters.

When SweetCheeks does the drawing, we know those are legit!
I'll have another give away soon, on my blog...

Patty Patterson said...

I got one of those microwave blankets for Christmas, but my husband isn't doing carbs right now, so we haven't tried it. I didn't think to use it on tortilla's, thogh. I'll have to try that.

I never won anything before either. It is so much fun. I also like having giveaways. This blogging world is beautiful place.
YOu got a buzzard card. I am so happy for you, he he.
I have to post about what happened (not to us) but someone else and a buzzard.
Yes, I remember about your granddaughter. I had forgotten. Quinn didn't not do any damage to his teeth or gums......there he was lucky. This is when I hate being so far away.
Have a good week-end. I finally got out yesterday and it felt sooooo good to be back amoung the living.

How nice of Marti to have such a grand giveaway! Those are some fabulous gifts.

I love those "tater blankets!" And they work so great to cook them, and to grab them out of the microwave so you don't get burned!

Enjoy, can't think of someone who deserves a prize more than you right now Diana!
