How Lucky Can One Texas Gal Be? Purdy Lucky!

First let me say... I love free stuff... Here in blogger land... there are some really talented, wonderful folks that have giveaways... in which you can win free stuff... really good free stuff! Now, I have to admit... sometimes I don't leave a comment, 'cause I really don't want to win the free stuff... but there are some that I leave my comment and hope-hope-hope... that I'm am the lucky winner... Last week... I won two wonderful blog giveaways... free stuff... that I really did the "hope-hope-hope"... thing.. and of course... left a comment so I'd have a chance... to WIN!

First... the lovely Deb at Hummingbird Farms in the Texas Hill Country... Have you ever visited Lavender Chick? She is a lover of Lavender... she and her hubby raise their own Lavender at a farm in the Texas Hill Country... She is a lover of the Kentucky Derby and stray dogs... With a heart of gold and the Midas touch... they produce wonderful products from the essence of Lavender grown on their Hill Country Farm... I really wish blogger would come up with that scratch and sniff button...

I would love to share the divine fragrance of this wonderful silky Lavender Body Lotion... but, if you wish... you can visit Hummingbird Farms and buy some for yourself... I know I will... Thank you Lavender Girl! and then... one of my newest blogging buddies from Louisiana...

Couldn't you just guess that she had a Fleur De Lis giveaway! The lovely Lisa at Livin' Louisiana who lives in Baton Rouge... shares wonderful southern recipes, fantastic photos and historical data from the Old South... and beautiful crafts... like these... I think these qualify as the most beautiful coasters I've ever owned.. and they came so beautifully wrapped in ribbon... stamped with French script and of course... the Fleur De Lis... and I love the little touch of the felt footie's... Lisa is truly an artist!

How much do I love winning blogger giveaways? I love it THIS MUCH! Especially when they are as beautiful as these, from two wonderfully, beautiful women in blog land...

Thank you both, from the bottom of my little ole' Texas heart... If you drop by to visit these two wonderful ladies... tell 'em Dixie sent ya from...

Down here in French Lique...

What a generous win! I love the smell of lavender. Every summer I pick several bunches from our yard and create all kinds of fun things to put the lavender in.
The Feur De Lis coaster are wonderful! I like the (stamped) handwriting in the background. Is it french text?

I hope you can come by and see the gift ideas I posted. I'm going to leave it up till Monday so there's no rush.

Sweet wishes,
Sara
