Lucky Me!

I have been rather fortunate as of late when it comes to winning things. I recently won 2 amazing giveaways from some wonderful Bloggers!

The first one I was lucky enough to win was sponsored by the lovely Gabriella from Sewing is Hard.
Here is the fantastic prize I won:
I have been wearing the items here and there as seen in some of my recent outfit posts. Everything is so cute and best of all the hat, earrings and brooch were all hand made by Gabriella herself!

The next giveaway that Lady Luck steered my way was run by the sassy and adorable Andi B. Goode and graciously sponsored by the always immaculately dressed Vintage Baroness and Adeline's Attic Vintage !
Check out the swag:

This just arrived in the mail today and boy is all lovely! I cant wait to tie that scarf up into my hair.....I cant bring myself to use the pins, they will just decorate my vanity when I finally get everything all set up.

If you do not already follow these lovely and generous ladies then what are you waiting for?? Thanks again girls!

We went looking at houses on Wednesday. We looked at 3 and each one made me want to cry after I viewed it. ::Sigh::
Am I being too picky? Am I asking for too much when I just want a house that hasn't been modernized by it's owner? Sometimes I secretly wish that I was a girl who didn't have such high vintage expectations and would gladly accept a home that looks like it fell out of the latest Ikea/Pottery Barn catalog. I just need to be patient and it will come.

Here was my house hunting attire for the day:
Not one of my best or favorite outfits. This was my first time wearing this dress and I promptly gave it away when I returned home,lol. The whole thing made me feel a bit dumpy, but whatever, you live and learn and then go shopping.
Dress: Old Navy
Cardigan: Gap
Belt: Old Navy
Heels: H&M
