I won, I won!

I RARELY win anything so just let me go with abandon as I share this with you all! I won a giveaway! I KNOW.... ME.... I WON! Who would have thought? Yea, me neither! This is the second time in 6 months that I've won, I think I'm on to something!
Angela at Tea With Friends whose blog is on my 'daily read' because it's quite simply the best blog in bloggyland about all things related to tea ~ in my opinion! She's a lovely lady whom I'm convinced is a kindred spirit from the likes of Anne Shirley and Diana Barry from Anne of Green Gables, when she recently posted about the gowns worn this week by the ladies of Washington. Angela, I'm in complete agreement with you about the gowns!
Okay back to the giveaway! It is a set of teapot and flowerpot patterns to embroider on tea towels! (the crowd cheers.......) I KNOW!! I'm so lucky! Now if your like me, I like to watch people open their gifts. I like to see the anticipation, watch the facial expressions change and just watch them soak it all in. Remember, I'm a trained observer so I'm keen to these things. So, Angela the following pictures are for you so you can see that your lovely giveaway made its way to me safe, sound and with a grateful and appreciative heart~
Not only was there the patterns but also a lovely card to open and 2 tea bags!

(Here my Boy asked me if it was a Mush Card because I said AAAAAHHHHH after I read it!)

Thanks again Angela! See you tomorrow!

Well Janeen, that is just the absolute *BEST* reaction to a giveaway I've ever, ever received! (And may I say you are just as lovely in the photos as you seem in your comments and blog!) Happy embroidering, and thanks again for your kindness to ME!
