Looky what I won in a cool giveaway from Annie:

She had a great giveaway at her blog celebrating her 600th Post! 600!! What a way to celebrate! Her giveaway was ’13 Essential Things for a Long Cold Winter’ – I was ecstatic when I ended up being the lucky winner!

When I opened the box, a wonderful aroma greeted me, so I laid everything out to take a picture so you could see all the goodies:

Quite the haul, hmmm? πŸ˜‰ Here’s a closer look at what was inside:

Green & Black’s Hot Chocolate Drink; Crystal Journey Candles ‘Summer Breeze’; Aveda Hand Relief and Foot Relief; Flower Essence Oil “Calming Days, Stormy Nights”; a Pumice Stone…but wait! There’s more!

A DVD/CD collection of Loreena McKennitt “Nights from the Alhambra” – I had never heard of it, so I Googled it…it looks like I’m in for a very special treat! πŸ™‚ And there’s more…

A cute journal to record any of my Random Thoughts; Fuzzy Footies that look warm and cozy; Fingerless ‘gloves’ that will keep my hands and arms warm but keep my fingers free for lots of typing… πŸ˜‰ And of course there’s even more…

Pacifica Sandalwood Body Butter…Mmmmm…I see some pampering in my future…especially with these:

See this cute pink wrapped package? This is what was inside (and also smelled heavenly!):

Cleansing Mud – enough for approximately 40 Washes; Warming Winter Brew – enough for 40-80 cups! Compliments of Rosemari Roast of ‘Walk in the Woods‘…very cool! And finally, the best treat of all:

A great book, authored by none other than the Giveaway Queen herself, Annie Kelleher! I of course had to check and see if it happened to be an autographed copy…
WooHoo! My own personal, autographed copy! Thank you so much, Annie! Such a cool and unique giveaway – I am so honored to be such a lucky winner! πŸ™‚

So I suppose I’ll have to rethink the ‘reason’ for doing something special and just do it…stay tuned, I’m brainstorming at this very moment…you can’t hear it through your monitor, but the gears are turning… πŸ˜‰

  1. VERY KEWL!!!!! There didn’t happen to be a snow blower in there somewhere???? My mailman didn’t deliver my mail today cuz I haven’t shoveled off the 8 inches of snow on my sidewalk… whatever. It’s still blizzarding outside so it’s not like anyone else has shovelled.

    So sorry to hear about Savannah’s tooth. How horrible. And I know you felt guilty after PROMISING her no pain this visit.

    So have fun with your new loot and I hope the Princess has recovered, and you too.

  2. Happy 207th post! πŸ˜‰

    Great package ya got there….I’m talking about the prize package….

  3. Wow, looks like you made out like a bandit. So that means I’m already getting some points cause I followed you last night and added your button and looky here I’m leaving a comment. I’m on my way. BTW, where did you get that Blog Roll Widget. I need that.

  4. Sweet!! Congrats on your winnings. I have to admit I am a it jealous as I NEVER win anything. Off to pout n the corner… sniff sniff

  5. Ha- I did the same thing, both with my 100th AND my 200th posts. Guess 300th will have to be the big deal πŸ™‚

    Congrats lady!

  6. thank you so much for all those wonderful photos and links!!! you ARE too cool!!! and the best bloggy winner i’ve ever had!!!!!! xoxoxo… i hope you enjoy everything!

  7. Congrats! You will love the Pacifica lotion. I used to manage an upper scale gift shop (for 5 years), and we sold Pacifica products. They are costly and worth it. The Sandlewood is one of the best fragrances in that line too.

  8. @Lady Bug: LOL Colleen! Nope, no snow blower…but then again, we haven’t needed one this year with our major lack of snow… πŸ˜‰ Holy Moly! Another 8 inches and still snowing? The Farmer’s Almanac seems to think we’re supposed to get a blizzard in March… πŸ™‚

    Oh yeah, definitely felt guilty after promising her the appointment would be ‘no big deal’ and ‘no pain’…ACK!

    I’m definitely going to enjoy my new loot…heh, heh! The Princess Nagger is doing MUCH better today… I’m doing better today, too, especially after having opened this box! LOL! πŸ˜‰

    @Brandi: Very cool amazing gift basket… πŸ˜‰ Thanks so much, Brandi! πŸ™‚

    @Kat: Thanks, Kat! Awwww, I’m sorry you never win anything! Maybe you’ll get lucky and win whatever giveaway I can dream up…then you won’t have to go pout in the corner… πŸ˜‰

    @LiLu: LOL! Oh good, it’s good to know I’m not the only one who doesn’t pay attention to numbers…heh, heh!! I’ll definitely have to pay attention and make the 300th post a big deal. But I’ll probably do some sort of super-cool-awesome-giveaway between now and then…just for fun! πŸ˜‰ Thanks for the congrats! πŸ˜‰
