I am a Winner!

Look at what I got in the mail from my "Winning Hand" swap partner Sherry @

Aren't these hand warmers great? I plan on using them to grip my cold steering wheel while I'm driving.

I love this vintage, hand embroidered table cloth.

And check out these classy Limoges dishes from France. So awesome!

In this swap we had to represent diamonds, clubs, spades & hearts. At first I had a hard time finding anything except the hearts, but once I got into searching I started to find more and more things with card themes.

It gives me an excuse to go to different stores than usual and check out the thrift shops.

Dawn is a great helper on this kind of a venture. She even spotted beads with card themes on them, that I made a bracelet out of.

What fun, both to get a surprise in the mail and to put one together for someone .
