Sweet Carol of Raised in Cotton 
was celebrating her five year anniversary of blogging
and was giving away a MASSIVE pile of goods ~
Well....I WON!!!!
I'll let the photos speak for themselves ~

Here are a few glimpses inside the book Jul ~

Dear sweet Dorthe and Julia, I can't read a you wanna come over
and do a little translating for me?? xxoo

I'm such a nut....I even love the brown kraft wrap that Carol used
in her package...see the tiny stripes?

Look at these GORGEOUS curtains!!!!
These are going in the guest room....

See the beautiful texture?

I don't know what these say but WHO CARES!!!! They're beautiful....

OMG! I haven't even read the post. Just jonesin' over the pics. You are one lucky b&*T% girl. LOL I think you are too greedy, you need to give some of that away. You know. Pass it on. Okay, you can't blame a girl for trying. I think that is the best giveaway I ever saw & it was meant for you sweet friend. To win with over 500 entries! Enjoy it all. Lisa

Lucky Girl! Congratulations, Dawn. Wonderful things for your inspiration. xoxo Donna

Romeo said...

Ummmmm.....Dawn, I agree with got so much surely you don't have room to keep it all ;) Of course Lisa gets first dibs! Can I have second?!?! LOL

Seriously though, I've never ever seen the "Jul" magazine and it is to die for. Well maybe not that severe but you know what I mean :)

You are some kind of lucky to have won this giveaway! Romeo tries but well I think he uses up his luck with each of his nine lives ;)

I hope you have a fantastical weekend!

I know from being in "blogland" for less than a half year that you are so deserving to win this prize. There are some wonderful giveaways but I think this one just takes the cake. You do a lot for others and I am so glad you got this incredible giveaway!

Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

Hi sweet Dawn, That's a wonderful and amazing giveaway you won and you deserve it!!!
I for sure would love to come over and stay in your beautiful guest room :-)! Unfortunately I can't help much with the translation of the book. I know only a few Danish words that I've learned from our dear friend Dorthe. May I still come? I would bring some German books and translate them for you :-).
Sleep well and have a wonderful Friday, Sweetie!
Big hugs,

Dorthe said...

Hi sweetie, just try me!!! I will surely help you--just give me the number of the side--have the book myself!!
Dear Dawn this giveaway was made for you ,everything just belongs in your home, and you deserves it so very much,dear girl.
I would love to see your guestroom together with Julia :)
Have a lovely friday dear.
Love and hugs, Dorthe
