Although there is frost on the grass and the temps. are chilly, the sun is shining here in the beautiful State of Michigan and that is a GOOD thing. If you are just rising, I hope you will grab that first cup of coffee and check out my post as I share some pics of some wonderful goodies I won a few days ago from one of our overseas blogging friends, Goedele, of Belgium. You will love her blog, THE GINGERBREAD GEM. She has lots of vintage shabby chic decorating ideas and shares them with all of us. She has just recently been asked to write some decorating articles for 24 HOMES, an e-zine that specializes in shabby chic vintage decor. Congratulations, Goedele; that is certainly a wonderful honor.
Here are the goodies I received from Goedele's giveaway:
The "Small Spaces and Cozy Corners" is full of fun, decorating ideas and perfect for me as I have lots of small corners...ha! And the vintage clothespins....well they started in the US, made their way to Belgium and are now back in the U.S. And Goedele tells me that they were used by the Amish. How awesome!!! I just so happen to have the perfect little spot to display them.
This wonderful pumpkin that displays some of Goedele's crafting talent. I love the look of the pumpkins covered with different fabrics and then decopaged. The stem area is wrapped with jute twine. It is really adorable and very chic.
And last, this primitive string of wooden red hearts that I have the perfect place to display.
Thank you so much, Goedele, for your generous gifts! I certainly love them all.
I hope you will take the time to visit Goedele at THE GINGERBREAD GEM. You won't be sorry.
On a little different note, I just wanted to share a picture of a diaper cake that I have been working on over the past couple of weeks. Our nephew and his wonderful wife are expecting their first (a sweet baby boy) and the shower is Saturday. WOO HOO!!! I love baby showers.
