Lucky Girl

First off, I don't really believe in "luck."  Except in dealing with bingo and raffles... gambling of all kinds basically.  And, of course, the elusive blogging giveaways.  So, I am here to tell you that I have hit the giveaway jackpot!!  I am even going to brag a little bit... hope you don't mind... I am not a very good winner! First off, I won this apron a few weeks ago:

I won it from Miss Mustard Seed, but it was donated by the fabulous Caroline Joy.  Miss Mustard Seed picked my (our) studio out of all the fabulous entries that week.

Then I found out I won a surprise from Gypsy Brocante... I am waiting on pins and needles!
And, do you know why I won it?  Because we have the same vehicle... well, I guess it is Mr. Hughes' vehicle, but I talked him into it, so it totally counts!  It is an '89 Jeep Grand Wagoneer.  Ladies, let me tell you, it is a man magnet!!  You would think it was a Porsche or something... they cross parking lots to talk to him about it.  So, if you are single and want some dates, look up your local Craigslist ads to find you one!

Then, I won this:

from Jessica of Living Better Together.  Now, I like my wine... and now it will be even easier to get my glass half full ( ahem... overflowing!)

THEN, I was reading early, early Sunday morning and I found out that I won Jana's (from Twig) giveaway.

A handmade banner

A bottlebrush wreath

a gift certificate to Ruche and a cute surprise pair of socks!

So, yes, be jealous of me in all my winning glory!  I am a little disappointed that I didn't win a certain gift certificate from Anthropologie... you know who you are... don't worry, I haven't deleted you from my bloglist yet! *wink*  And, don't think I will forget all of this swag I am getting.... my 100th post is coming up in 5 posts and I will have some lovelies to give away!

And, speaking of lovelies, my wonderful husband surprised me by looking in my etsy favorites and getting me this for my birthday yesterday.


it is from BKMHattitude  and I love it!  I also got a very sweet silhouette necklace with my favorite little guy's profile.  Mr. Hughes actually made it.  And, a wonderful photo book with photos from our Where the Wild Things Are photo shoot.  My mom and sister got me some clothes and mom gace me some cash for the studio... can't wait to buy some supplies!

So, keep reading for my 100 post giveaway... I will try to time it that the winner will receive it after all the holidays are over so that there will be something to look forward to!
