What better way to celebrate than to do it with friends. As you know, once you become a blogger, you make hundreds of wonderful and talented, kind and generous, warm and caring FRIENDS.

For the past three years my "blogging" friends have shared my heartaches, brought me joy, sent me outstanding creations which I will treasure forever, but most importantly have become a huge part of my life. And for that I thank you.

Please CELEBRATE my joy in being featured in "COTTAGE STYLE" magazine. The best part about this feature was that I had "no idea" they were publishing it until about two weeks ago when Harris Publications called to confirm my website address. At that time they explained that their Annual Issue of "Cottage Style" would be featuring my home in the "ROMANTIC" section of the upcoming issue. Needless to say, I was screaming and jumping around the house. I am honored to be featured in this gorgeous magazine.

To Celebrate this wonderful news with my blogging friends ~ I've decided to have a huge "Give-Away".
to spend on anything you desire in any of my three shops, "Treasured Heirlooms", "Elegance & Whimsy", or "NewEnglandVintage" ~ Etsy shop.

My goal for 2010 is to have at least 1,000 people "Following" my blog. I know that is a bit of a stretch, but I'm going to give it a go by starting today. So, here are the things you can do to be entered in the first "BIG GIVE-AWAY".

1-Entry for being a Follower (click on Follow)---->
2-Entries for adding my blog pic to your blog sidebar---->
3-Entries for sharing the news in a blogpost
4-Entries if you follow me on Facebook

Please don't forget to leave me a comment to let me know how many of the above items you've chosen to participate in the contest and ~ voila ~ you're entered.

500 FOLLOWERS ~ Good Luck and Thank You.

I couldn't wait to share another Easter Basket swap.

I will be posting ALL the beautiful lovelies again on April 3rd, the Show Date of "Miss Rhea's Easter Basket Swap". But until then, I just had to let you see the beautiful treasures I received from Jennie of JNichelle's.

Jennie is so talented and I adore everything she sent me. It always amazes me at how much time each swap partner puts into getting to know you and creating something special "just for you". I am thrilled to bits and can't wait to share everything. But until April here are a few awesome goodies I want to show you.

Getting jealous????

Ta da! Look at these treasures

My very own Glittery Easter Basket hand-created by Jennie herself! Squeel...

A vintage Lefton chick (2DIE4) and my favorite chocolate Lindt
(what more could a girl ask for, seriously).
I love you Jennie!
You are the bestest....

Thank you for a wonderful Easter package.

Miss Rhea's Easter Basket Swap

Sweet Miss Rhea from Sweet and Shabby Roses held a wonderful tiny Easter Basket Swap. We had two partners each and we had to decorate two Yogurt cups then fill them with 5 awesome treasures for our partners.

One of my partners was Debi Huntsman (Lifeinmystudio) blog. I received her amazing Easter Basket today filled with goodies 2DIE4. She sent me a beautiful vintage pearl and pink rhinestone pendant, a beautiful roll of pastel tulip ribbon, a gorgeous roses gift tag, an awesome rubber stamp, a huge vintage pink rhinestone clip-on earring which will be gorgeous on one of my new creations. All of this scrumptiousness came in a sweetly decorated pink adorned Easter Basket filled with chocolate eggs. OMG!!! I am so darn spoiled. And I still have another one on the way.

This is the Easter Basket I sent to Debi. Her five things were wrapped separately and tucked safely into her package.

This is the awesome Easter basket plus goodies I received from Sweet Debi.

Chocolate eggs, Rose tag, Tulip Ribbon

Vintage pendant 2DIE4

Rubber stamp and Pink Vintage Earring
