. . . I mean coincidence.
Well, you know it's my birthday month and I'm having a giveaway (see post here). Only 6 commentors so far (what am I doing wrong? this may just be my last giveaway!) so you have a really good chance to win.
Anywhoo, back to the coincidence.
Last year, way back in 2011 (isn't it funny that 13 days into 2012 we think of last year as being so far in the past), I was a happy camper to discover that I won 2 (not just one, but 2) giveaways!
And I received both gifts ON MY BIRTHDAY!
What are the odds of that happening? Did they secretly know that is was my birthday? Did they covertly send their packages so that they would arrive on the same special day?
Probably not. Just a very lovely coincidence!
Marie from Lost Bird Studio is probably the most talented, creative and prolific artist I know. Always, always something new and wonderful to see on her blog! I truly hesitated to open this sweet packaging but I knew inside would be something even more special!
And special it is! I'll treasure it Marie!
(Darn post office cracked the glass on my special piece but neither me or my memories are in perfect condition either).
Tracie of Fishtail Cottage (one of my 'new' favorite blogs) sponsored a giveaway with a prize from Shellagh of Ticking and Toile. Another beautifully wrapped package almost too pretty to open.
But being the 'can't stand a unopened package' kind of gal that I am, I tore into it to find a wonderful stamped pillow cover. Gorgeous, no?
Thank you Marie, Tracie and Shellagh for unknowingly making my birthday a day of happy surprises!
Now, IF you visit my blog and IF you enter my giveaway, maybe you will win and the package will arrive on one of your special days too!
