Congratulations Sherry - please drop me a line and let me know your mailing address !!!


Ok on to today's AMAZING give away - and an amazing LADY!!!
Meet the sweetheart Sherry - from THRIFT MY HOUSE

This immensely talented lady can turn this little bit of left over jute

into these gorgeous flowers  

Her wreaths are spectacular - 

including her Garden Wreath -  ( which I LOVE ) 

She transforms shutters into amazing things as well!

Ok - but where I really go crazy is seeing her Christmas decorations !!!
Sherry lives on a Bird Farm ( sorry Sherry but all I can think of is the movie The Birds so I think a visit to your place would have to be indoors for me - I'd last outside probably all of 30 seconds )
BUT living on a bird farm means lots and lots of feathers - what do you do with molting feathers?
Well I'd probably run around screaming my fool head off and then go paint a dresser - but she makes these ( you're going to gasp - I just know it ) 

DID YOU GASP???  Aren't they gorgeous!!!  And I could go on for hours with her ornaments - but I have to get moving with this post!

Last week Mr. Postman knocked on my door and handed me this................

Filled with the most beautiful Paris Themed Christmas Tree ornaments - created just for this giveaway!!!

Talk about a presentation!!!
