A Cheerful Gift

How lucky am I? Does that mean my luck is changing?
How blessed I was to win a giveaway from
for Paulette's one year anniversary!!
How pretty is this?
wrapped so sweet.

Wait a minute...wrapped even cutier in old book pages.
I guess I have not had a giveaway because I am afraid I can
not wrap them as adorable as I have seen people do there's.

Sweet card
Look! a beautiful necklace!!
Paulette bought this when she was in Hawaii
It is made of glass from the beach.
That makes is extra special that she brought it back from Hawaii
Now I have been to Europe but not Hawaii
My Dad was there in WWII, so makes me think of my Dad a little.

The best part was....
With what I was wearing, I was able to put it on 
It is not easy to take a picture of your neck!
Now I find myself rubbing the glass, because I have a habit
of playing with my necklace's.
It has an adjustable chain so I can change the length.

Paulette, I greatly appreciate your generosity.
Due to several things I do not have the money to go buy
something so special for myself.
How wonderful to wear a piece a friendship so proudly.
It was so nice to come home from a long day at work 
and find a surprise in the mail.
I now have a CHEERFUL SMILE.

Please stop by and visit her wonderful blog!
Cheerful Thrifty Door.
