~Thank you Maryann~

I Won! the most wonderful gift (giveaway) from Maryann at  Mariondee-desings It arrived all wrapped in pink tissue paper with a pink ribbon, and traveled over the seas from Australia to my little cottage in Modesto Ca. Safe and sound. (You can click on any photo to enlarge if you like)

Maryann designed and made this fabulous cottage throw. I love it! it has the sweetest ruffles and lace.
Maryann sent the sweetest note along. 
  I was so excited and thrilled when Maryann wrote to tell me her beautiful daughter Lisa had drawn my name. I adore this throw and it brings me much joy! You all know how much I treasure everything handmade, and I will treasure this gift forever.

If you haven't had the pleasure of meeting Maryann at Mariondee-designs, please stop over and say Hi!
I'm sure you will love her blog as much as I do.

Oh my goodness Elizabeth...Here is one more thing we have in common...Are you ready? I believe the fabric on your adorable sofa chair is the same exact one I purchased a while back to make a throw and pillow...The following post of mine has a picture of it...check it out: http://apetitecottage.blogspot.com/2011/03/spring-cleaning.html.

I'm telling you, we are true kindered spirits...Hee, hee, hee.

Much love,
