With all the recent talk on my blog about giveaways, I realized I have two very long overdue Thanks to share.
Last month, I won two different giveaways just a couple of days apart! First, a wonderful vinyl wall phrase that reads "Every Day is a Gift" from As Time Goes By, a blog written by sisters Victoria & Christina. I've wanted one of these for over a year, so you can imagine how happy I was to have won! I'm still trying to decide exactly where I plan to place it (and since the whole house is due for a fresh painting...it will have to wait a little longer to actually go up on the wall!) Thank you so much Victoria & Christina!
If you enjoy thrifting/repurposing/decorating & photography (not to mention meeting really sweet ladies!), pay them a visit. Bet you'll like it, too!
A couple of days later, I was visiting TidyMom, a really fun blog devoted to baking, creating, mothering and yes, tidiness. She was sharing a wonderful cherry dessert that was made in a heart-shaped pan. At the end of her post, she mentioned that she was giving away several Wilton Heart-Shaped Pans. I entered and lo and behold, I won there as well! Thanks so much TidyMom!
My initial plan was to make her dessert (or something similar) while using the pan. I assumed I could share my thanks AND a recipe, too! Well...let's just say what resulted could only be described as an "epic failure." (I really wish I would have taken a photo! You would have gotten quite a kick out of it.) For now, this photo I took before the baking fiasco will have to do. = )
