All the way from France and Elizabeth

A while ago, I won the most fabulous giveaway.

It was in honor of Elizabeth's 600th post.
600 posts - quite an accomplishment.

Elizabeth was one of my first blog friends way back
in the day.
In fact, her blog was one of the first that I put on my sidebar.

If you haven't visited her blog, you are missing out on something quite special.
She is kind, talented, has a wonderful heart, and is someone I call a friend.
I hope to meet her someday (don't worry dear Elizabeth, I'll give you advance warning-hehe)

Here is the collection of goodies that I received.
You know I love anything French.
The card shows the headdress of the local ladies.

The lavender sachet was made by Elizabeth
and smells heavenly.
I love the fabric and the verse on the bag.

Every time we went to France, I would buy a calender.
The kids knew we wouldn't leave until I found the right one.
This is one that I would have picked.

Shower mitts are a favorite.
Don't you think these are sweet with the little bird?
Love them.

Thank you so much Elizabeth.
Please give hubby another big hug from me.
I'm so glad I won!
Is that selfish?

The kids will be in town for another week.

If I don't visit, I have a very good reason.
My priorities are in order.
Look at those precious faces (not mine, but I do look very happy).

Have a wonderful week!

Huge Hugs!
