Another special gift to show you {and the winner} . . .

I'll never get to France.  

Frankly, I'm not sure I want to visit France.  Oh, if I was a gazillionairess it would be on my bucket list but there are so many places in the United States that I would like to see first.

But that doesn't mean that I don't love all things French!  I am so glad that there are blogs out there that supply me with all of the Frenchy goodness that I crave.

 Rhonda from A Little Bit French is usually where I go to dream of France.  

And I was lucky enough (not lucky enough to be a gazillionairess but . . .) to win her monthly giveaway!  Maybe some of the pieces she used to create these beauties actually came from France!  At least that is what I tell myself!

She made a pincushion out of a spoon!  Can you imagine the creative mind that thought that up?

And little stamped pillows!

I'm feeling the amour!  The jen e sais quai!  I'm transported to France!

I found the doorknob and it isn't from France (or is it?  hmmmm . . .).

The giveaway package is dressed and ready to go to the winner of my birthday giveaway!  Where shall I send it?  Who will the random generator choose?  (Why can't I get a picture of the random generator?)

Joanna of Fiddlesnips!

You are going to celebrate my birthday month with me!

If I get your address before Monday morning, I'll get the package in the mail.  If not, you'll have to wait a little longer until I get back from my VACATION!  Send it to me ASAP, okay?

(Sorry about the difficulties commenting.  I hear that blogger wasn't being cooperative.  But if I heard from you telling me your problems, I added your name anyway.)

Yes, this little Nebraska girl is traveling out of the country.  To sun-filled (I hope!) Punta Cana, Dominican Republic!  Scary - YES!  Excited - YES!  Have to white-knuckle it on the plane -  DEFINITELY YES!  

Thanks to all of my friends who wished me a happy birthday and welcome to the new followers!  Sometimes we have fun here so the more the merrier!

See you on the flip side!

Wishing you a wonderful trip Connie- ENJOY, dear, and congratulations with winning some of Rhonda`s beauties.

I never ever thought I'd make it to France but I did. It's the angels working their magic, I tell ya. Everything has to align up for it to happen.
It took a gazillion years - in my eyes - but never give up wishing, I say.

I love this post, your images are dreamy.
congrats to the winner and thank you for bit on me..tee hee.

Did you know that alcohol effects you MUCH quicker at high altitudes? I learned that :)

it all looks French to me, Connie. What a dream it was to go to France this summer. Like you, I never thought I would go there. Maybe someday!!!
P.S. Keep us in your prayers, if you would. Jud is not doing well.
