Oooo La La!

So...... a few weeks back, I found a lovely little blog called Bliss Farm Antiques... I visited a couple of times and fell in love.... Jackie lives on a beautiful farm and also owns an antique store that is filled with genuine french treasures.... both a dream of mine.
Well.....she had a giveaway and of course I signed up!! But sadly I didn't win (boo hoo!) Well last week I woke up to an email that said "Hello Winner!" Huh? That contest was over...I rubbed my eyes and opened the email. Evidentally 2 of her 3 winners didn't respond and I was picked in the second go-round.
I was to win some french ephemera (be still my heart, I love old paper!) a little french tin, 2 stencils and a lavender sachet... I was thrilled!!!

Now, go forward in time to this past monday.... I return home from work, tired and maybe a little grumpy (me??? no!) and there is this wonderful, large box with my name on it waiting for me!!!!
Look what Jackie sent me!

A box covered in old french paper, wonderful old paper ephemera, a candle that smells like heaven I am just sure of it, a burlap wine bag that I am going to foof up, some pretty blue ribbon and a gorgeous crystal perfume bottle that was once worn around the neck ( of a french princess I am sure!), the promised sachet........oh so fun!

But wait! There is more! I still can't breathe I am so excited about these:

REAL, AUTHENTIC, VINTAGE FRENCH GRAIN SACKS! I have made a million different things with these in my head already....I LOVE the pig ...... I am just so excited! But wait!

You still havent seen the wonderful paper goodies! And some buttons, and the tins:

Oh Thank you so much Jackie, I am just thrilled with all my french loot! Now the rest of you need to go visit Bliss Farm Antiques and see what a lovely blog and shop it is! Happy Thursday! karen.....
