Pink Saturday...

last month, Lori Lynn had a giveaway on her blog celebrating her 400th post...
and I WON!
but it was a surprise giveaway, so I had no idea what was coming in the mail...
but I knew it was going to be good, cuz she has good tastes...
this was on the box all around the shipping label and she even had PINK hearts all over the box, which was destroyed in the opening of it cuz I was so excited...
there were so many things inside...
like this adorable PINK and white tea cup...
each item was wrapped in tissue paper...
so there were many surprises to open...
and the tea cup had pretty PINK roses inside!...
and kisses where  throughout the whole box, so I just started piling them in the teacup...
see how pretty?
the lip of gold and it's embossed just below it...
then a ribbon of PINK and gold decoration below...
WOW!
then a little green tinted bottle that will look so cute in my bathroom...
and this is where I thought the smell was coming from...
oh, I haven't told you about the smell as soon as the box opened...
the sweetest smell EVER!
but it wasn't coming from here...
more digging...
was it this? ...
sniff, sniff...
no, it's sealed...
but one of my very favorite things!...
yankee candles ROCK!
and then I found this cuter than cute handkerchief...
and you won't believe it...
but I really think I have one like this...
wouldn't it be cool if I do?...
I could use them for fancy napkins at a tea for two...
and then I found these absolutely amazing pillow cases...
there's a pair of them with a wide PINK band and PINK roses all over them...
and then I got to this!...
this was the smell!...
she was so clever to do that...
I am for sure going to remember this the next time I send a box...
it was so sweet smelling and then everything smelled so nice!...
more digging produced these sweet little dangly earrings...
and of course every wise woman puts chocolate in a box along with heart peeps...
what's not to love here?...
how did she know I was a HERSHEY girl?...
ESP!
boy, did I win the right giveaway or what?...
this is everything I would hand pick for myself if I were out shopping...
it is all totally me...
thank you, Lori Lynn for sending the best stuff!...
I'm going to eat all the candy...
I'm going to use the soap and tart until they are gone...
I'm going to use the pillow cases and handkerchief until they are thread bare and can't be washed anymore...
I will wear the earrings until they don't dangle anymore..
and the little jar and tea cup will be shelf sitters forever...
and I will smile and remember the time that I won and my dear blogging friend every time I look at them...
thanks, Beverly for hosting such a fun blog party!

Hi Tete, I’ve missed your blog this week. I’ve been on a road trip for work and it’s been nuts so I’m playing catch up this weekend. I just love Lori Lynn and I would say you won the mother load. I particularly love the adorable pillow cases and handkerchief--if you do have one that is uncanny. The teacup is beautiful. She packed a very special gift. Isn’t it great to have wonderful blog friends. I sure am grateful for you :)

What a giveaway! Your sweet friend is awesome! She filled your box with wonderful treats and so many treasures. I am so jealous! HeeHee! Love those peep.My friend Sharon sends me Peeps a couple times a year, in the mail, although she lives about 30 minutes away! I would die if I did not get those peeps! She hates 'em, I love 'em! It is such a fair trade!Anne HPS!

Happy Pink Saturday Tete Sweetie...
Oh what a beautiful share this weekend. I am SO thrilled that you won the giveaway. She had that box packed with LOVE just for you sweet one. So beautiful. What a wonderful idea to add that wonderful smelling soap that everything would smell heavenly when they box was received. I bet even the mailman didn't want this box to leave his truck.

I love that little peep hearts, didn't know they made them, but will be searching for the grands, as they LOVE those things.

Love your teacup and those dangly earrings. So elegant. Hope you are having a warm weekend, or at least staying in where it is warm.

I have a really bad cold, so I am staying in, taking antibiotics and hoping to catch it before it reaches my lungs. I can't afford another illness like I had in May when it took my voice. I just cannot. No outside activity for me.
Have a wonderful Saturday sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
