Junkin YaYa Chique's Give-Away Prize!



The day before I left for my trip to Italy I received a wonderful package in the mail from Debi of the Junkin' Yaya Chique online store and blog...



I was the lucky winner of her August Give-Away and just look at what she sent me!



Two treasures were prettily wrapped in soft brown net bags....these were, along with brown and beige tissue paper, tucked inside a hand stamped paper bag tied with brown tulle ribbon...included was a hand stamped card in its own little envelope...



First, one of her exquisite chunky turquoise and silver heart bracelets! I just love this!



And then....as an extra surprise ...look at this fabulous bookmark with silver medallions on the ends of a black grosgrain ribbon...

If you know Debi and follow her wonderful blog... you know that she is a true and gifted artist with a big heart and generous spirit ... The quality of her work is outstanding with each and every detail attended to....

Thank you Debi! I am so happy to have you as a friend!

And now....We returned from our adventures in Italy late yesterday and have spent the day recovering from jet lag, unpacking our bags, getting some food in the house and reveling in the wonderful memories of our journey while beginning the process of reviewing our many pictures.

Over the next few days, I plan to post about our trip, share some of our sights and tell of our meeting and time spent with our blogging friends Vale and Paola of Les Cotrions in Lucca. It was the highlight of this fabulous trip for me and I can't wait to share it with you...stay tuned!
:) Laura

hi,Laura,
I am happy you all got back safe and sound. I am so glad, that you had such a wonderful time, but I knew, you would!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to talk to you and see all the wonderful pictures and hear all the stories. I just love the bracelet and bookmarkers you got! I saw my diningroom, and it brought back wonderful memories, after all, that is where it all began.
We'll talk soon,
