And..Colleen, you have been a very lucky girl lately..

Oh yes, boy howdy I have :-)

First, I won this magnificent handmade quilt from Melinda of http://melindasfabricfancies.blogspot.com/ and she hand-delivered it to my front porch..I say my front porch, 'cos I wasn't home..

We'd talked on the phone...

"I think I found your house"..

"Great? Are there 2 little dogs in the window barking at you?"

"no"

"huh..maybe they're down with Grandma.."

"do you have a bear with a welcome sign?"

"no...do you see cream curtins with red flowers?"

"no.."

"do.not. leave the quilt there..that's not MY house!"

Well, she did find my house and when Mr. B came home he found my beautiful quilt wrapped up safe and warm on my front porch..

...and here it is..




..another thing that's amazing about this quilt is that it is the colors of our room! yep, we have orange walls and blue hints..that may sound strange for a room, but it totally works :-)

So thank you again Melinda for your time, your efforts and your talents..we adore it!

Then, Santa came early by way of my MIL and my BIL and SIL...

I'd like to introduce you to "Bubbles"...

It's an....

and I lOvE It!!


so, I don't know how I got so lucky, but does anyone know where I can get some lottery tickets???

Here's to great in-laws...great blog-buddies and being the luckiest girl on the planet...well, OK in the whole USA...

Here's hoping you all get lucky :-)

Melinda Cornish said...

I am so glad you like it and so glad I got to deliver it to the right house! I would love for you to email me a pic of your bedroom. This quilt was meant for you all along.....

Connie said...

You just take such great pictures. And how about that new pc ??? My goodness, this must be your month. By all means, enjoy them to the fullest.

Thanks for stopping over to look at my leaves.I have used hot glue sticks for some of mine -- this one happens to be from one of the magazine listed below.. not mine. Results are the same, though.

Need to ask you a question ? Where do you leave your comments for me and others as they show up on my dashboard ? That is what takes me the most time -- commenting and chasing down the different sites.
Any simple hints would be welcome.
Enjoy our week - supposed to be a nice one.

Behind on the blogging stuff...
Love that you won the quilt and Woot Woot for the laptop! Maybe it's an omen.... (o:

That quilt is gorgeous beyond words. Is it a disappearing nine patch? I'm making a couple of those for my girls but shhh...they're meant to be a Christmas surprise!

And a bubbly computer is JUST PERFECT for you and your champagne personality! Congratulations, dear one!

Hello, you are lucky! I think I'm getting coal in my stocking for Christmas.

Re: the quilt. I love the color combination. It is quite stunning.
