Mod Podge Amy Giveaway prize arrives

At 7:30 this morning there was a knock on the door. Who the heck was here knocking on the door that early in the morning. Tom handed me a package from Fed EX, and to my surprise it was from Mod Podge Amy of Mod Podge Rocks. Visit Amy's wonderful blog here
I had received an email over the weekend from Amy letting me know that my name had been drawn for leaving a comment on her blog. 
I was totally surprised that Amy had also tucked into my giveaway package a starter kit of all the different Mod Podge products. WOW!!  How very generous you are Amy. Thank You!!!!!
Now, here is the giveaway prize that I won.
Big Ass Decorating Book and modpodge2

And on another note:
What a glorious  morning this is. The sun is shining and it is warm outside. Yeah!!!  I wish I could say winter was over, but that is hardly the case.
I also want to share this with all of you.
Yesterday, coming home from visiting and doing errands for my elderly parents I stopped to take a few photos of three swans on the ice and in a small open area  of water in a cranberry bog reservoir. Snow and ice surrounded the open water. I only had my old Canon digital camera in the glove box of the car with me, and that camera doesn't have much of a zoom. It was late afternoon, and unfortunately the sun was facing the direction where the swans were. I couldn't resist getting out of the car and taking a few photos.  And, so this morning I decided to change the snowy woods photo on my blog header with one of the swan photos that I took yesterday.
