I Won A Giveaway and More Eye Candy

Hello all my friends.  I am so sorry it has taken so long for me to get back to visiting with you.  It has been a very busy week here at the homeplace..  But I have some wonderful news.... it is COLD here tonight.  The wind has blown all day and I am tickled pink that we are getting some winter weather.  Even saw a few flakes of snow in the early morning hours.  It is suppose to be short lived but I'll take what I can get.  It's so cozy here tonight, the fire is going, tarts have the house smelling wonderful, and all is well.  Hoping all of you can say the same.

A couple of weeks back, I was so blessed to have won the great giveaway Lois over at http://huckleberrylady.blogspot.com/ was hosting.  Needless to say I was on my road trip when the package arrived.  Holly was getting the mail for me so she ask to open and take a peek.  She loved the set of x's and o's Lois had made.  Thought she might just try and keep them, but bless her heart she gave them up when I got home.  Sorry Lois it took me so long to post a picture of them, but my camera batteries died and I just got them replaced.  She also was so kind and sent Darbee Rae a braclet and card and I had a wonderful egg she had made me for Easter.  I am saving it to show you when I put out my Spring decor.  Thanks so much Lois.  If you don't follow Lois, you need to head on over and visit.  She is a very talented and wonderful lady.  Take a peek.

I was so excited to win these as I don't have many Valentine related  decorations.  They are prim perfect. 

When we last visited I had showed you a few rooms in my friend in Tennesse's home.  I will try and show you more tonight.  So many prim things to see.  Thanks again Dimple for letting me share these photos.
We will begin in the dining room.  Some of the displays...

Okay ladies, that's about enough for tonight.  This girl has got a lot of goodies, huh?  Hope you enjoyed the tour.   Sending wishes for a great Saturday evening and a Blessed Sunday your way.  Stay warm and be thankful.  Until next time.
