A Wonderful Gift from Olive Rue!

Pin It

Going to the mailbox and seeing this glittering jewel...

Olive Rue had her 50th Blog Post Giveaway...and I was announced the winner! Woohoo! Well, my prize arrived in the mail recently. Wasn't it wrapped beautifully?! I almost didn't want to open it. I got over that really fast! I just wanted to see what was inside...

Aren't they charming cards?! Thank you, Olive Rue! They've given me all kinds of inspiration of what to wear to Deb's 100th Post/Giveaway/Birthday Celebration party! What do you think...a Jackie O. inspired suit, a bathing suit, a ball gown and dance shoes, or a summery halter dress? You decide and let me know!


  1. Fantastic cards, and the wrapping is fabulous! Congratulations on winning!

  2. A maroon bathing suit! Definitely, you should wear a maroon bathing suit while posing in the snow! There’s something about an Aggie moving north that’s just so wrong in so many ways!

    Great cards, Olive Rue.

  3. The wrapping looked like the gift itself. I promise you my wrapping will look like wrapping!
    I vote ball gown, tea length and way off the shoulders. Are you used to wearing heels? I wouldn't want you to fall off of 'em. Congratulatons on winning. And congrats to Olive Rue on 50 posts. Her blog is pretty special. Debbie

  4. Oh and I almost forgot!!! Thanks for the shout out about my 100th post. Helen Louise would scold me for not remembering my manners! Debbie

  5. How exciteing!!! What a beautiful package!


  6. Congratulations on winning the giveaway.

  7. Thanks for stopping by our blog!

    I love the 2 Bergere chairs you found. They will be absolutely beautiful! I will come back to see what you do with them.

  8. Amy...GIRL!!!!! You are so sweet. I'm glad the package made it okay. Glad you liked the cards and the wrapping job. I really enjoy wrapping. You should see me at Christmas. Lol.

    I'm just blown away with your photography skills and how creative you were in displaying those cards. You really have an eye for photography. I love how there is just a little bit of sunlight shining on the wrapped package and the angle you positioned it. YOU are the one that rocks!!! :-)

    Anyway, you asked me how I keep count of my comments. I don't delete my e-mails and I knew I wanted to do a 500th comment count so I keep track of the e-mails that way. I know...too much time on my hands.

    BIG HUGS!!!!

  9. Wow! Olive Rue has my favorite colors down pat! What a fantastic gift.
