One Lucky Blogger

Within the past 3 weeks I have been one lucky blogger!  I have won not one, not two, but three wonderful giveaways! 

My first gift was from Debbie at Pink Roses and Teacups.  Debbie was a blogging friend that I met through the Vintage Christmas Monday posts.  We both share a love of vintage Christmas and Debbie hosted a giveaway of two vintage Christmas lamps.  The lamps resemble candles and both have little angels on the bases.  They arrived right before Christmas and I was able to add them to my holiday decor.  Thank you again Debbie for the wonderful gift.  Although they are safely packed away now, they will definitely be a part of my yearly Christmas decor. 

My next win came courtesy of Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions.  I have been following Kathy for awhile now.  She has a great eye for decorating and she creates some wonderful crafts.  Kathy is a blogging friend that you can always count on to stop by for a visit and leave encouraging comments. 
Kathy recently held a giveaway to help celebrate the 2nd anniversary of her blog.  Once again luck was on my side as I was the winner of these fabulous gifts:  two metal crown hooks and a hand crafted journal.  I think I have a pretty good idea where I'm going to hang the hooks (I can't give it away just yet) and the journal couldn't have come at a better time to help me record some of my thoughts as my family adjusts to our new year.  Happy blog anniversary Kathy and thank you for the thoughtful gifts.

My last giveaway win was through the generosity of Laura @ White Spray Paint.  Laura has a beautiful blog that I recently became familiar with through the Silver Sunday party.  I have enjoyed getting to know Laura these past couple of weeks and I was super excited to be the winner of the giveaway she hosted to celebrate her first year of blogging.  The prize:  A blog makeover by Jackie @ Memories by Design!  I have been wanting to update my blog look (you will all be happy to see the 1962 Christmas blog header picture go away) and I will be working with Jackie in a couple of weeks to start the process of beautifying my blog!  Happy blog anniversary to you too Laura and thank you so much for the generous gift.  Look for the new and improved Mamie Jane's in a few weeks (now if I could only update my own look that easily!)

When you have a chance please go visit these three ladies.....you won't be disappointed.

I'm linking today with Jan @ Bobbiepins Boardwalk for The Boardwalk Bragfest.  It couldn't be a more appropriate party.

Happy Wednesday,


  1. Thanks for linking your winnings, Jane! It is a very appropriate brag, if I do say so myself! I recently won something also, but she wasn't sure what it was going to be and I've not received it yet, so I'll brag about it when I know what it is (haha), but I love your goodies! I will miss your Christmas picture though -- terribly! I love looking at the picture. I reminds me of my past Christmases. A blog makeover would be a lot of fun though! I'll keep my eye open and see what you two come up with.

  2. You are one lucky duck! :)
    I am drooling over the crown hooks and that journal, Jane! Congratulations, dear! I hope that the new year brings happiness and blessings to you and yours...and hope that you are doing well! I'll be keeping an eye on your blog~ you must be very excited about working on the new look!
