I am not usually a 'lucky' person. I hardly ever, ever win anything. You can ask my family. I don't win raffles. I would never buy lottery tickets because I know I'll never win anything and it would just be a waste of my money.
So imagine my delight and amazement when I found out that I had won a giveaway from Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage! Wow! I have been reading Cindy's delightful blog and commenting on her garden and cat photos for several months, virtually enjoying her garden near San Francisco. Cindy is a really creative person and she gives away cards and gifts on a regular basis. I just never expected to win anything!
This little package arrived just before I left for Oregon. I was so excited! Do you know what I did? I put the box on the table and looked at it for TWO DAYS before I opened it. I savored the thrill of winning and prolonged the sense of anticipation as long as I could. Finally, I opened it. Slowly. Carefully. Quietly by myself.
There was a letter inside.
This is what was in the package! A lovely retro-looking decoupage three dimensional wall box! The recipe for Chocolate Fudge Pie is from a pamphlet published in 1952 called Borden's Eagle Brand 70 Magic Recipes. The note on the back of the box says that 'the illustration of the finished recipe is a highquality photo reproduction of an original watercolor by Cindy Iverson that she hand-constructed into an original piece dimensional paper art.'
I immediately hung this treasure on the wall next to my kitchen door! Aren't I a lucky girl?!
