Now please don't be envious, but I also was the lucky winner of another giveaway from
Sissie of Sissie's Shabby Cottage in celebration of her reaching 500+ followers!

Hold onto your hats, girls ~ she let me pick ANYTHING that she had in her terrific etsy shoppe HERE ~ and of course, I chose her Sissieliciously PINK Ruffled Pillow!!!

Just look at it ~ could you blame me?!?!?!

~Picture below courtesy of Sissy's Shabby Cottage~

It came wrapped so beautifully in a huge box with lots of pretty tissue paper and ribbons and the sweetest Eiffel Tower notecard!

Look at the OODLES and OODLES of PINK Ruffles!

Bling here and there in the lovely raggedy rose centers!!

It is every bit as pretty on the backside, too!

Just perfect on the bench at the foot of our bed!!  :0)

Thank you, Sissie!

Sissie really knows how to do things up right, as you can certainly tell if you have ever visited her beautiful blog!

 ~ Sissie ~

This is the phenomena that is....SISSIE!  She lives in NC and is having the time of her life right now, whether it be decorating her own home or out scavenging for beauties for her booth space. When she isn't busy re-decorating or rubbing decals on pretties, she can be found sewing GORGEOUS and I do mean GORGEOUS items for her esty shoppe, Sissycakes. Burlap, ruffles and roses are passions of hers, and she does them so well. I asked her a bit about herself and she told me that she started sewing when she was a young girl of about 12. Fast forward thru some years of outside work in the business world and raising her son. She started back up again a couple of years ago and credits several others in the blogs as having inspired her to create again.

"I'm not sure why I started doing the ruffles but I think it's because I love everything girlie and pink. I think ruffles kinda say it all."

Sissie is one more fun-loving and talented lady ~ I promise you will love her, too! Please visit her HERE and tell her that Stephanie sent you!

Only 6 more days........
Friday, June 25th!

Now I'm off to visit all my PINK SATURDAY friends, starting with our lovely hostess Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. She has the complete list of all participants!

Hi Stephanie and congrats on your two wins. Everything is so wonderful. I love it all and excited because I won Lori's giveaway this month and it is on the way. Can't wait.
Going to meet Sissie too.
Yes ony 6 more day till your party. I am so excited and as I was working on it, blogger suddenly published (glitch time I think)and off it went with just a few sentences. Luckly no pics were on yet, I quickly deleted it, but there is no way you can take it off google. LOL!! It has happened to another dear friend of mine, so I guess it can.

Have a wonderful Father's Day with your dear hubby and family.

Love you my friend,
Celestina Marie

sissie said...

Hi Stephanie!
I am just now getting over to visit you. I think I'm on blog overload visiting all the blogger's creative spaces.
I am so thrilled and honored that you featured my pink pillow. I just about fell off my chair when I saw the photo of it on your beautiful bench!!! Holy cow, that looks so lovely. I am speechless.
It's perfect. It's almost as if it was designed for your bench. I am so glad you chose it.

Thanks for all the lovely compliments and for tooting my horn.
You are a dear and I am just blushin pink right now.

Oh, I got so excited I forgot to tell you how beautiful your other gifts are. Love it all.

hugs and smooches,

Wow you landed in a bowl of butter as my grandma would say! Well if your in the mood for another give away swing on by.

Cami @ Creating Myself said...

First, of all...I have to confess as to what a pig I am. All those goodies in that first photo & what's the first thing my eyes are drawn to. Yep...the pastel Jelly Bellys. LOL But after the initial reaction, I realized what wonderful goods you received. WOW! That's some give-away package!

I've been out of touch w/ blogland recently so just learned of your party. I'l try to get picturse & a post ready tomorrow but I'm keeping a grand & then I leave for Paper Cowgirl on Thursday so I may not be able. I don't want to miss out on your first party though so I'll do what I can.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Congratulations! Great prizes and lucky you! laurie

Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

Wow, you really scored, didn't you?
That pillow is gorgeous!

I just realized that I'll be gone to my Paper Cowgirl art retreat on the 25th, so I won't be here for the wedding party. I'm sorry! I hope it's a big success! :-)
