A Package of Pink and Perfect Picks

 A few weeks back Debi at Lavender Garden Cottage (Her wonderful blog here!) had a giveaway of items she had collected from The Longest Yard Sale.  It looked very delightful so I entered.  And guess what?  I won.  Last week a package arrived and I excitedly opened it.  There was more than I imagined could be packed into that basket. 

 Debi outdid herself with this giveaway.

 First the basket is just right to hold some of my fall gourds.

There was a crocheted doily with a pretty brooch that seemed destined to be together.

Two Oneida silver plate serving spoons - tarnished to patina perfection.

 A salad plate with a pink floral design and a pink rose tea cup.  Love that large size!

I am thinking those spoons might make great place holders.  Maybe a ribbon and a tag with a name?

 The two milk glass dishes with the candlewick edges are very decorative on the bottom.

Some small votive candles for some ambiance.

Yes, I think that brooch is going to stay with that doily.

Oh, and I almost forgot the very pretty yellow voile apron with a floral embroidery.

You can tell I was quite taken with the pink shred also!

Thank you so much, Debi.  I am going to enjoy using all the goodies!

See y'all!
