Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

WAY Better Than a Rubber Plant

I don't know if you've heard or not but I won a giveaway!! I am so excited because I never win anything. Well, that's not entirely true. When I was in 4th grade I won a rubber plant. In a raffle. Woo hoo. Not that exciting when you're in the 4th grade. But last week Anne, well really her bird Alabaster, picked my name and I won her giveaway.
Look what came in the mail today!!
All wrapped up so pretty in pink.



An adorable little handmade card.

TAGS!! Very beautiful glittery roses.


And last, but not least, a mosaic heart in pinks and greens, two of my favorite colors. Thank you, thank you Anne. I love everything so much.

And thank you Alabaster.

I would say tons better than a rubber plant! Very pretty tags. And besides isn't a package in the mail the most wonderful thing? :-)
Sorry your Valentine will be out of town. Maybe you could pack a surprise coupon book somewhere in his suitcase, and let him find it as he uses his things....☺ Lewaina

Love, Ann

That is absolutely wonderful. I love it. I used to dabble in mosaic. I loved making them from broken china. This is so fabulous and will look amazing in your house.

Aaaaaaa (code for screaming)...you are one lucky girl!!! I'm so happy for you, especially if the last thing you won was a rubber plant.
Guess what? I won a drawing in the 5th grade. It was a replica of a stuffed brown alligator, about 12" long. I think...the alligator wins over the rubber plant. Sorry. : )

Those tags are prettier than pretty! They won't talk back either :)
