To Give and To Receive

Remember the giveaway I had a couple of weeks ago for the Mosaic Heart Wall Peg? Cindy from My Romantic Home won it. Well, I forgot to take a picture of it before I mailed it to her, so please go on over to Cindy's blog and take a look at it. She placed it in a really fun place in her beautiful home!
Now on to the receiving part of this post. I was fortune enough to win a giveaway myself!
Gabrielle from Home...be inspired everyday, had a giveaway a few weeks ago. She asked us to guess her favorite store. The winner would receive a gift from that store. Well, I guessed Anthropology and I was right!
Look what Gabrielle sent me! I love this apron so much! The colors are perfect, reds, yellows and blues. See the larger apple? That is a pocket! Too cute!! Thanks Gabrielle. I really do love it!
Welcome Home,
Penny

Oh that is so cute! Perfect for your home and your collection. I did see your mosaic over at Cindy's. It's beautiful as always.

It got wrinkled in the shipment. Glad you liked it Penny and yes I made the card, nothing fancy, very simple. I figure if I got to crazy with the card you'd never get the apron!! I love those colors too...
