A Bee-utiful Prize!

I'm so lucky! I won a give-away recently from the fabulous Penny at Comforts of Home!!! I'm sure you all "know" Penny and if you don't (where have you been?) run, don't walk, over to her blog and sit and visit for a while. She is so talented and such a kind and caring person. Did I say talented? Her give-away was a fabulous glass hand-crafted honey dipper!!

The quilt group I belong to is called The Busy Bees so I was doubly excited to win as I collect bee "stuff". Isn't it gorgeous!?! Notice the card it came with? Penny won a giveaway herself a few years back. It was a painting from a photograph that she sent in. You can read all about it here. So I feel like I won two prizes! I'm going to frame the little card and hang it in my sewing room when I get it redecorated.

One thing that I really appreciated about Penny's giveaway is that all I had to do was leave a comment. I didn't have to "follow" her, although I do. I didn't have to do a post on the giveaway, like her on Facebook, put a link to her blog on my side bar, email my second cousin twice removed in Michigan to go check it out or stand on my head while reciting the Gettysburg Address. Do you see what I'm getting at? Sometimes I don't enter drawings because I'm expected to jump through too many hoops to be entered. Just saying....

Until I can find the perfect glass honey jar I'm putting the dipper in my glass spooner with my collection of silver spoons.

My favorite spoons in this collection are my U.S. Navy spoons, being the proud Navy mom that I am!

Thanks Penny, I'll treasure my honey dipper for years!!!

(I actually won another giveaway but will post about that later this week. Each wonderful person deserves there time in the spotlight!)
