Well what do we have here?


The blogging gods have been berry berry good to me again.  RM at A Day in the Life drew my name to win her 'modest' (so she says) giveaway!  The package arrived today and I got to work setting them up in my newly painted bedroom, trying out my new Christmas present:


My winnings included a set of three lanterns, 2 pillar candles and votives, and two adorable boxes of matchsticks to light them.  Not modest at all and a perfect match to my new bedroom color.


Here I warmified and fuzzified the picture, as well as using some saturation for the candles, so it's hard to tell how nicely they go with the wall color...


 
Here I didn't mess with the color at all.  No flash. Pretty, no?
 

 Thank you RM for hosting this awesome giveaway...I know I'll be enjoying it for a long time!




And I have one more pretty to share tomorrow....my name got yanked out of the hat by another wonderful blogger for her giveaway!  If that wasn't enough, I also was bestowed with an award, which I'll also post about tomorrow. Told ya, my stars were aligned last week :)  Wish my kitchen was....

Oh Cindy sweetie...
You are so correct. I would not say this was a modest giveaway. They are just beautiful and my gosh what a match they are to your decor. I just love it. Thank you so much for sharing with me.

I love brown with this color of green?teal? no blue-green? I don't know but it sure is beautiful.

Have a beautiful evening sweetie and thanks again for sharing.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry
