Mail love and finally
a peek at my giveaway goodies!

I wanted to show you the most precious gift I received in the mail Wednesday. Another Dawn from Georgia contacted me a few days ago and wanted to send a gift that she had made! Can you believe how beautiful this little bib for our grandbabe??? Dawn, I just LOVE it and know it will look precious on Brent and Emily's sweet baby ~

I created a special art piece just for the 600th Post Giveaway.

An old mayonnaise jar houses the sweetest photograph of a vintage baby sitting in his own nest with two speckled eggs and surrounded by feathers!! It has a special tag with speckled eggs tied on the cotton ribbon and the most beautiful quote from Emily Dickinson on the top.

Also, I'll draw another name for the Cherish thought book that I made recently and another name will be drawn for the lavender sachet. I'm also working on a bookmark to give away too!!

I know this little bluebird is a bit fuzzy (above) but he's on one little notecard that I have and I think he's just adorable. Feel free to take him home with you ~ A sweet reader Juno worked on the baby in Photoshop and emailed me a better version (below), thanks so much Juno!!

Thank you all again for such kind words on the contest post. I blog because I love my friends here, I'm inspired here and continue to meet the most amazing people.

Wishing you a very happy Thursday dear friends,

xxoo, Dawn

What a sweet little bib ~ perfect for your first grandbaby!

Your newest little jar is very sweet. That Emily Dickinson quote is one of my favorites. Thanks for putting in the close-up of it. It looks so pretty against the bit of sheet music.

I love the little blurry bluebird!

Have a blessed day.

PS ~ whoever wins your giveaways will love whatever they receive.
