A Very Good Day

I have been so excited to share with you what happened to me recently, but I had to wait until I received my "prize" to show you. Yes, I said prize! I entered in a give-away over at Mary's Little Red House. You all remember Mary, I expressed my admiration for her work in this post. Well, she is now selling her prints on etsy, here. And winner, winner, chicken dinner....I won! No skill was involved, just pure luck. Here is my selection from Mary's fabulous shop:copyright Mary Carroll
(don't make me hunt you down!)
Isn't it beautiful? I love it!
Well, the same day I saw I had won a print, I got a box from my Ma-Ma. What could this be? Sneaky, she is! I called her as I opened it and to my surprise were a set of milk glass dessert plates.Apparently, Ma-Ma was cleaning out and organizing her basement and came across these plates given to her from my grandmother, Mia. Who is the whole reason I started collecting a few pieces of milk glass. Milk glass like this:Does this piece look familiar? It's part of the reason I picked the above photo from Mary's selection!
Be sure to come back as I share how these two pieces inspired my January decor. In the meantime, head on over to Mary's shop!
Thanks for stopping by and Happy shopping!

P.S. Notice the length between my posting? Well, this organizing bit is really puttin' a kink into my blogging! Thanks for returning and I am grateful for your comments!


  1. mary's work is beautiful and inspiring - congrats!

  2. Woo-hoo! Awesomeness all around! And don't think I didn't notice the lovely miniature greenhouse beside the plate...:) The print you chose is so beautiful. Happy day to you!

  3. I'm so glad you like the print, Traci! And I love your milk glass plate -- such a pretty ruffled edge on it! It's so easy to start collecting milk glass. Take it from me: before you know it, it will have taken over your house! lol

  4. lucky thing you! The print is awesome...and the other stuff...swoon! We used milk glass for everything at my daughter's wedding. It was beautiful! :)

    Glad to see you again!


Thanks for leavin' some love!
