Blog Blessings

I have been very fortunate to have received some wonderful things through the blog world. I don't enter every giveaway out there; only things that really jump out at me, or mean something to me.

Recently, I won two amazing giveaways, and received both things within the past week. These two items are both incredibly special. They aren't just a simple prize, they are both artwork. I was able to have some choice in what I received. I am SO thrilled to have both of these things in my home!

The first was a painting that I won from Mama Sick. It's by an artist named Robin Maria Pedrero. I was able to choose the print that I wanted. It was SO hard to choose! But the one that spoke to me, which will probably not surprise anyone, is called Fleurs with Black Cat. I absolutely love it.




The picture doesn't do it justice; I took it outside for better light but it was overcast. Check it out on her Etsy shop; it's really beautiful.

The other wonderful creation that I won was from Pooh's Corner. It's an owl pillow! And totally adorable. She asked me what color I liked, and of course I said purple. But I didn't expect her to personalize it the way she did! She put my blog name and tagline on it. It's a Putting the FUN in DysFUNctional owl! It is just so special to me.




It was so beautifully packaged, especially before my kids got ahold of it.



How cute is that?!
Not only is Christina from Pooh's Corner sweet and talented, she is also generous! She told me that for the next two weeks, if my blog readers order an owl from her Etsy Shop, and type in the coupon code: dysFUNction - you will get a 25% discount! The owl price is $20 and that would make it $15 plus shipping. Fantastic!!
**ETA:** There's a glitch going on right now on the Etsy page and the owls aren't showing up, so if you want to order one, you can contact Christina via email: forever1pooh@yahoo.com and/or via her PC Boutique Facebook page.


Have you received any Blog Blessings? Tell me about them!
