A Winner and Best In Show!

It has been a whirl wind of events.
I was truly surprised by the overwhelming response to my Giveaway.
One sweet friend came as far as Italy!!


Miss Chari from Happy To Design!!

That was such a fun ride....

I decided to pick another winner!!

Yes, two Jars two winners !!

Miss Justine from Stupid Is As Sister Does

you're my second winner!!!

Ladies this Apothecary Spigot Jar will be on it's way to you...
as soon as you contact me with your mailing info.

Thank you again for participating.

I really didn't want to leave anyone disappointed.....

So, to show my appreciation and in the spirit of the Christmas season,
I've decided to continue the giving by joining Romantic Home
Monthly Giveaway.

Part of my ventures (as you know ) was to my most favorite event.
The Seattle Cash and Carry trade show.
I can't begin to describe how wonderful this three day shopping extravaganza is!
The plethora of eye candy to consume can make a girl dizzy!
To give you an impression what it's like... my credit card has been left with smoldering skid marks!!

The trick (as always) is finding a way to bring A-L-L my purchases back home......on the train!!!
It would really help if I could have a whole train car to myself, but I guess that's a little to much to ask.

As incredible as the shopping was, It couldn't top "the best in show!"
I've been searching high and low for a jewelry designer that I could commission to create some custom pieces for my shop...
Sara's Suprise Sucre
I (finally) found her!
What's even sweeter...... her name is Angel.
She definitely lived up to her name.

Just a little peek of whats to come...

( click to enlarge the beautiful details, but be prepared, have your sunglasses handy).

Swarovski Fleur de Lis with chain.

Paris Eiffel Tower Tank...A-L-L SWAROVSKI'S!!
Wouldn't this look marvelous layered with a pink french cuff blouse!

What drew me to her line was her Parisian flair and the quality of her designs .
Each (one of a kind) piece is constructed with the finest materials and (American made) craftsmanship.
I'm ecstatic to add her exquisite jewelry and clothing styles to my boutique .
I'm so looking forward to sharing this line with you
(in time for your Christmas shopping).

I've notice you've been so kind to add me to your blog rolls.
I'm updating my links and would love to include you on my roll.
Please let me know in the comments if you'd like to link up.

Hi Sara...

I got your sweet note! So happy to have you stop by, my friend! I just wanted to let you know that I have no way of getting your email. When I click on your email link it pulls up an identity box on my computer that uses Outlook mail and we don't have Outlook. It won't even show me what your email address is...so sorry! That is why I left you my email address. Could you please email me? Sorry for the inconvenience!!!

Have a fabulous day, my friend!
Chari @Happy To Design
