A Very Special Delivery

A few weeks ago, Theresa...you know, the TexWisGirl, had a giveaway.
Like many of you, I entered just knowing I wouldn't win it...
...I never win anything....but hey, why not give it shot, right?
~
Well, you could have knocked me over with a feather when she announced the winner!
~
It came yesterday.
The mailman delivered it to my door and left it on my front stoop...
...while I was working.

IN. THE. RAIN!

I found it this morning...the package, soaking wet.
I held my breath as I opened it, praying all the while that the rain hadn't penetrated.
Thank the Lord, it was dry inside!


I almost cried...it was so beautiful!
And the card she made that accompanied it was just breathtaking...


...suitable for framing, all by itself (which I plan to do).
Look at the intricate detail of the hummingbird...so beautiful!


But that wasn't all.
Included inside the card was a sweet note and these...


...two four-leaf-clovers from her own yard!


I feel so blessed to have been chosen as the winner of this beautiful gift...


...from this lovely, talented lady.


Thank you Theresa, I will cherish this!

Blessings,

  11. Congratulations! Theresa does beautiful work--though I've not seen it close-up. You'd better keep it locked up somewhere safe, NC isn't all that far from VA. ;) I'm glad the rain didn't harm it.
