I'm always amazed by the generosity of people in Blogland.... it's not uncommon to see a give-away celebrating blogging anniversaries, # of posts, even birthdays! The author usually has put quite a bit of thought into her give-away; always wanting to make sure the recipient feels special.
Well, I AM FEELING SPECIAL. I found at yesterday that I was the winner in Rose Mille's giveway! What made this even more special was that the winner was not randomly selected, but rather was chosen based on a response to a specific question.
Those of you who live near Minneapolis, or who attended the Creative Connection Event last fall, may be familiar with Michelle Rose and her beautiful shoppe in Stillwater, Rose Mille. As you walk through the doors (after you are awestruck by her window displays), you enter a serene, beautiful, elegant and ultra femininine atmosphere. There is so much to see... you want to make sure you are looking UP, as well as DOWN. Michelle always has imaginative ways to display things...
Rose Mille's website describes it as:
. . . a vintage style fashion, home decor and crafts shop.
... but OH, it's so much than that!
Are you looking for vintage French ribbon? Exquisite millinery? Hand-made furniture that speaks to you? Plumes and feathers that look like they came straight out of Moulin Rouge? Chandeliers dripping with crystals, or light pendants covered with pantaloon ruffles? Get the point? Amazing!
So that is why I am thrilled and honored to be the recipient of Michelle's very first "kit" which contains all her favorites from the shop...
Isn't it all beautiful? I've promised Michelle I will send her a pic of my creation(s) using her gifts... but I did warn her that I might hoard a few things.
Thank you, Michelle and Rose Mille!
I'm sharing my beautiful blue gift with Sally and the folks over at Blue Monday!
