Wonderful Blessings--Beautiful Friends


Hi Everyone~

This week has been a week of amazing surprises from wonderful friends! My friend Dore from Burlap Luxe sent me this amazing vintage piece that she made into a magnet. I had to share it with you. Everything Dore creates "turns to gold" in her hands...We may be miles away, but we are so close in heart.


I met my friend Barbara through the One World One Heart event...She is an astounding gallery artist and I won this magnificent print of her original artwork...Her work is amazing!

And, just yesterday, she created a post introducing bloggers to my work...I was so overwhelmed by her kindness. Barbara is new to blogging and I hope you will have a chance to visit her and say "hi!"


I met Alveen through One World One Heart and won this scrumptious wall-hanging...All I can say is, "Be still my heart." I love it and was so surprised! Her work is so beautiful and I am so humbled to receive a piece of it. To see more of her creations, please go here.


I won this book from Marie and I know that I will treasure it always. Doesn't it just look like something I would want? I was so surprised and am so grateful for the chance to have won it when Marie offered it as her giveaway for One World One Heart. She is a sweetheart!


Britt is so filled with creativity and I won one of these handmade treasures from her during the One World One Heart event...These are so beautiful and I was so surprised to win one of her creations!

I hope that you are all having a happy and creative day filled with joy!

Also, if you have not signed up to enter the giveaway for my Mardi Gras tags, just zip on
down to the next post and let me know if you'd like a chance to win!

Hi Cindy. I'm so happy for you, winning these lovely things!

At one time, I think you sent me your email address but I can't find it. (Geez, I'm turning 64 so i forget stuff. I apologize if it wasn't you). If you did, could you please email me from my blog?

Have a happy "Meraux" week, dear friend!

Wow; look at all the wonderful goodies you've won and the friends you've made along the way. With your winning streak, you'll want to enter my giveaway, if you haven't already.

Thanks for faithfully linking to my party each week. I hope you'll be able to join me for "Funny Faux Pas Follies," as well.

Faye said...

Cindy, you are certainly a blessed girl! Most of the hundreds who enter the One World One Heart drawings don't win anything. You were so blessed that you actually won 4. Did I read that correctly? What beautiful treasures! I'd love to paint like Barbara.

alveen said...

Thank you for the thumbs up, and your kind words. I am delighted that my collage has gone to someone who appreciates it so much. I love all the other gifts that you won. Congratulations!
I was lucky enough to have a win also. But it is a surprise so I have to wait until it arrives before sharing.

Micki said...

What lovely wins! How nice for you!

Patti said...

Wow, cindy, you got some totally gorgeous gifts!!! Even more beautiful, though, as I know you will agree, is the friendship that prompted the gifts. You are a very blessed lady!!

I'm getting into a routine with school, so I'm able to be in blog world a bit more. In addition to continuing to write at Fill My Cup with Beauty, I've decided to start a classic movie blog. I'll be doing my movie reviews there now, as well as writing about other classic movie subjects. But, I still intend to write on Fill My Cup with Beauty a couple times a week. I have really missed being around here more often. I have missed you!!!

Blessings and hugs,

Theresa said...

wowie zowie! you won some really beautiful treasure! Congratulations Cindy! Theresa xoxo

Hi Cindy with all you give to others you deserve such delights in the mail and delights they are.
Tell you what, get some coffee brewing (or a hot chocolate), I'll bring the cookies and pop on over so we can sit and while away the hours looking at that book. Oops, one problem, there is a big lake between you and I . LOL
Have a lovely weekend.
Linking up to your Blog (if that is okay) as showing the lovely tag you sent to me.

Jenny said...

Wow Cindy. You were richly blessed with treasures lately! Hooray for you!
