lucky me

I’ve won TWO giveaways! I can’t believe how lucky I’ve been. You jealous? The first one was hosted by Dionne at City of Dionne. I just received it in and mail today and could not wait to share it with everyone! I won this beautiful clutch from Amy at IMH Designs. Seriously, check out her Etsy shop – it’s full of beautiful clutches. The fabric is fabulous and it is really well crafted, high quality all the way. A big thanks from me to both Dionne and Amy!

I chose the Lavender and Green Floral Clutch Purse with Dupioni Silk Lining, and it’s fantastic! I love the green lining and kisslock clasp. There’s a layer of batting in there, making it nice and thick, which will keep things like my camera from harm in case I drop it (I’m clumsy!). I’ll let you know about the second giveaway once I receive it (and can gush more thoroughly about it).

Then, I decided to be bad and go shopping. I know, I know … but I was armed with a coupon for Michael’s, and I was in the area, and … I’m just making excuses for myself. Bad, bad me. I didn’t splurge much, just bought some buttons and silver ribbon that had been on my list for a while. And then I found a cute set of lime green measuring scoops that I simply could not pass up. I love Michael’s! But I love the blogging community even more!
