i won!


A couple of weeks ago I entered a giveaway from A Farmgirl's Dabbles,
 sponsored by Land O' Lakes.  This awesome giveaway consisted of
 a Le Creuset pan, beautiful bowls and other kitchen goodies from
 Anthropologie (as well as free coupons for Land O'Lakes butter
and Saute Express).

When Brenda emailed me to tell me that I had won the giveaway, I nearly fell
off my chair! I have entered plenty of blogger giveaways, but this was the first
time I've won.

"This giveaway is now closed.
Congrats to Melanie Riley, the winner of this prize.
Thank you to everyone who entered!"


I have the butter dish displayed on a shelf in my kitchen.


The shelf is part of the gallery wall that I've been working on forever.
I'm still looking for that "just right" piece for the center of the large frame
on the top right. Then I'm done. I think.
 

As for the measuring spoons, heck, I think they're too pretty to use!
So I hung them from the bird cage in front of the kitchen window.
 

Using the large bowl to hold potatoes...
 

 Have you ever won a blogging giveaway?

    1. Thank you, Lynn. The Le Creuset pan is fabulous, but it retails for $100! If they last "forever" (and I have no idea if they do), I'd say it's worth it.
