My blogging friend, Kathy, over at 
was holding a fun week of giveaways over at her blog last week.  It was in celebration of her milestone of 500 posts and 3 years of blogging.

She teamed up with 5 other talented bloggers to showcase and offer as giveaways items they created themselves or items from the companies they represent.

Each day she offered a different item, and each day I added my comment to be entered into each one of those giveaways.  I would have been tickled pink to have won any of the great items offered! 
Well, Ole Lady Luck was watchin' over me.  
I won!!!!  
The best part is I won a beautifully hand crafted sign from another blogging friend 
- and almost neighbor as we both live in the same small state - 
Paula from 

Since I first "met" Paula in blogland over a year ago, I have drooled over her gorgeous signs, vowing one day to purchase one for myself.  You can imagine how thrilled I was to find out I was the winner of her Je t' aime sign ~ French for "I Love You" ~  and just in time to incorporate into my Valentine's Day decor.  

A big huge bear hug to you, Kathy and Paula!  
What a great way to start the New Year . . . as a winner!  ;o)

Thanks for visiting! 
Leave a comment so I can get to know you.

Congratulations, Carla! Thanks for entering the giveaways. I'm so glad that you love the sign and I know you will enjoy! Paula was a sweetie to allow me to offer it; I've loved her signs for awhile now and I'm hoping to buy one this year.
