Look What I Won.!!!!! and Pink Saturday

Tis that lovely day filled with all things beautiful and pink, pink..pink !! I so enjoy trying to get to each participant and see all the beautiful things that are shared. And, I so appreciate Beverly. She has so much to do keeping track of all of us...so thank you again Beverly. You're a lovely lady to share so much of your time with us...
So for everyone that would like to participate in Pink Saturday..or just to scamper about looking at what all the ladies are sharing, head on over to Beverly at
How Sweet The Sound to see the list of ladies. Now, let's all go see the pretty pinks !!

My offering this week is a most wonderful giveaway that I won. I can't tell you how excited I was when Marian of Dream Weaver sent me a message telling me I had won. The pics she had shown
of the giveaway were so pretty..but when that large package arrived...I couldn't wait to open it. MY gosh, inside was three packages all wrapped in pattern tissue and tied with sweet blue and white. Needless to say, I started to open said packages. And inside was such lovely treasures.....
The first package held the little vintage basket..just look at the sweet roses and the soft shades on the vintage pinks. Little baskets handle and sides are woven with basket reeds and wonderful shades of colored cording. It's so sweet and I just love it.

And !!!!!..little basket is filled with so many treasures, can you see just a bit of what's inside?
the inside of the top of little basket is filled with treasures of it's own. There is wonderful thread in pretty colors..pins with pastel pearly tops, a tube? of vintage thread..a tape measure..and a sweet blue button..

Some of the treasures inside little basket... a tiny fabric hand,vintage buttons on their cards,three fat quarters of the prettiest fabric all tied with a sweet organdy ribbon, a Mystic Dreams sachet packet with a sweet old fashioned pic on front, a pretty belt buckle, a vintage zipper, a roll of lovely,lovely lace, three pretty,tiny crocheted roses,vintage seam binding..
and a tiny note booklet with a cute kitty..
Next....was this sweet apron.All trimmed in pink with pleats at the top,and the prettiest edging on the apron sides and the pocket top. Annnnnnd, a surprize in the pocket. Make that two surprizes in little pocket. Do you see what's peeking out???
It's this little guy.....safely arriving in Texas tucked in an apron pocket... ( please excuse the fuzzy pic of little bear. It was me..not the camera). By the by..little bears name is Oz.. :)
Surprize # two, was this sweet hankie tucked in the apron pocket. Isn't it pretty?
Next, was a tiny red and gold bag..all tied with a red ribbon...and inside was this....
these pretty,pretty buttons. I love the buttons..specially the flowers and little bears.
Next...came craft books...two of them. One a craft..the other needlework. Love them both.
Next..came this package of patterns for bags....aren't they pretty??? And Marian even sent the handles along with the patterns.

And last......was this sweet table runner/scarf. All done in browns and sweet peach colors....it's just lovely.
I thought everything was so sweet and so pretty. The apron I will save for my very best...and my vintage sewing things will be kept in little basket. I have looked at all the pretty things again..and again...I love them all. So thank you again Marian, you're a sweet lovely lady.
