A bit of sunshine!

It's been a long week. A week filled with a blizzard and days off of school and/or plenty of delays.

There were drifts that totally obliterated our front porch steps...

and caused need for my uncle to come and plow us out of our own driveway.

And our neighbor to plow out our entire road because the County trucks REALLY DO NOT care about little 'ol us.

I also decided it was high time, apparently for me to get the flu, and our computer to take a day off (it's decision, not ours) from connecting to the Internet.

It was a rough week, until I got this little package in the mail.

You see, a couple weeks ago, I won a little giveaway on Denise's blog.

I was blown away! I never win anything!

But she sent me some of the most adorable things evah!
Like this snowman pillow and flag garland.
This mini cupcake stand and flower clip.

These great bird tags...and little pitcher.

There was also an IKEA towel (LOVE THEM!) and another picture of the garland.

Denise even had her own little sticker to go on the bag this all came in.

Very vintage. Very ME!

Just look at the pillow on my just fits!

So THANK YOU Denise for brightening my week!

And go on over and check her out here. She's worth every minute of browsing!


  1. Lucky you! Those little garland and the cupcake stand are darling! After the week you had it certainly was a bright spot for you!

    Hope you're all keeping warm there,

  2. Lucky dog! Hope your feeling better - we're passing strep/ bronchitis around our house during our snow days. Yuck. Sounds like there's a bit more weather on the way for all of us - so I'm hoping you stay healthy and warm in the winter weather.

  3. I'm sure that was nice to receive that package after not feeling so's been nice to have the days off, but any more for us and we make up days at the end of the school year!

  4. Wow....your place looks just like ours! My first blizzard since moving to Indiana 7yrs ago and I hope my last! We have 4ft drifts every where!
    Isn't it fun getting little surprises in the mail? Cute, cute stuff!

  5. you're { S w e e t }!
    So glad it made your day!

  6. Hi Vintage Girl, I am trying to catch up from a week on the road and admiring your new header and background. The thing that I loved about it was the little flag banner and lo and behold you won one that looks just like it. This is a great giveaway for sure, I love all the great things you got. The bird tags are pretty too. I am going to check her out right away. Hope you are drying out this weekend and staying warm.
    Hugs, Amy

  7. Thank goodness for neighbors! We have a neighbor who comes through with a plow too, since the city won't come out to our road.
