Lucky Me! I Won a Delightful Giveaway!

Aren't bloggers the nicest people?  At least the ones I've met sure are!

Not too long ago I happened upon this creative lady, Sue over at Gossamer Creations.  She was having a giveaway and I was the lucky winner!  You have to see what she has over at etsy shop.  She also has this great website The Gypsy Factory.  

What a lovely presentation!  I'm saving the lovely black ribbon!  I know it will come in handy.  I think it might be some of that bias tape I keep reading about.
 Just look at all the lovely treats!
 A tiara of course!  (What bee would be complete without one?)  Can you see the pretty blue ribbon/bias taps peeking out from the back of this?
 Sweet little cake or other sign!
 Now I just adore a scrumptious cupcake and won't these be lovely sitting on top of all that fluffy icing?
 And (my personal weakness and favorite) a Make a Wish banner!  I love it!  
Do you see the coolest tape she used to edge the cardboard that was in the package to keep everything safe?  Isn't she awesome??? 
Please be sure to go see her lovelies over at her etsy shop!
Oooooh - I'm going to be bad here because I didn't ask permission, but I hope she'll forgive me....

Here are some of her sweet Christmas creations:

Now I hope you all had the most wonderful Thanksgiving!  My family and I spent the day with my husband's family and I am so glad we did!  It has been 19 years since we last celebrated this holiday together and this might the first time when all of us - every single stinkin' relative - were able to be there! It was marvelous!

Now - let the Christmas fun begin!

Thanks for buzzin' on by!  
Are you ready for some peppermint mochas?  
Don't you think it's time we enjoyed one together? 

That has got to be my favorite Christmas treat!  What's yours?

Sweet buzzin's,


  1. Lucky you! (whine,sniff) Glad you had a great Thanksgiving.

  2. Great reunion for this Thanksgiving for you!!!!

    Hmmmmm....can't believe Christmas is already here.....ahhhhh my favorite treat.....ALL OF THEM!! (O:(O:



  3. What a lovely giveaway! Congratulations!
    Sounds like a wonderful Thanksgiving!
    My favorite holiday treat? Too many to count - eggnog, pumpkin anything, sugar cookies, snickerdoodles, fudge...

  4. Isn't winning just the most fun? Congrats! I checked out her etsy shop...lovely! So glad you had a nice Thanksgiving with your family. This year all of my siblings and our mother and their families were all together...only my son, DIL, & grands were missing (sniff, sniff) was their year to go to DIL's family's which is only fair! Take care and enjoy the holidays.

  5. I just have to share this with you. I was surfing around and came across the cutest BEE scarf and thought your SANTA might be interested. It is only $11 or so and just too cute. Here's the site...sort of long but you can just copy & paste into your browser.

  6. Hi, Bee,
    I'm so glad you won. So far, I haven't been that lucky.
    My favorite Christmas treat is Martha Washington balls. But it's all so good isn't it? :)

  7. Hi,
    I'm glad you like the "Make a Wish" party goods. Thanks for the nice post about it. The ribbon that we use is "Hug Snug Seam Binding". You can get it on ebay in many colors. Once I found it I use it for everything....I just love it.
    We like a "Merry Mocha Mint" from Juice it Up. It is a mint mocha chocolate shake.....and sooooo good. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Have a great day.

  8. How wonderful that you were all able to get together. Enjoy your lovely winnings!

    Wishing you all the joys of the season!

  9. Sounds like a delightful holiday!!
    Love an eggnog latte every now and then this time of year..


Thank you for buzzing by and taking time to leave me a little note. I always enjoy hearing from my friends.
