Bright Spot

A few weeks ago I won something. A blog contest.

Amanda has a fabulous site. She shares many photos and each one of them speaks volumes. I wish she lived closer so she could take a photo of our family.

My winnings arrived yesterday. Aren't the packages just the cutest?

When I won, I received an email from Amanda which included several questions. The answers to these questions would reveal to her my favorites.....foods, flowers, scents, what I'd love to have for myself but never buy, what luxuries do I purchase for myself, a perfect day, etc.

She took those answers and used them to create a customized gift. See my pretties? A coffee scented candle (because I like the smell of a coffee shop), the cutest button magnets, a photo (which I'm sure she took) and then superimposed my answers to her questions on it and a ring. Isn't it lovely? I'm wearing it this morning. I smile each time I look at it.
Thanks so much Amanda! You were the bright spot in my day.

Did I mention how wonderful the new banner is? It's absolutely gorgeous! Great job!

P.S. I am compiling a slideshow for you of some shots I took on my trip. I found myself saying - "Oh, I have to take that shot for Nancy - she will love it!" I'll let you know when it's ready!
