Merci Beaucoup XXXOOO

I wanted to do a little Oh La La post today.  Suzan from Simply Vintageous did a Paris theme giveaway on her blog.  Suzan invited several talented and crafty bloggers to do a giveaway hosted by her on their beautiful handmade Paris themed treasures.  I loved this.  It was a lot of fun and then when I saw I won one of the giveaways,  I was so excited.  I mean REALLY EXCITED and you will see why after I share the pictures of my beautiful win.

I won the 2nd giveaway on Suzan's blog and it was made by Tuula from Thrifty Rebel.

Tuula from Thrify Rebel has a great blog and a wonderful Etsy Site.  Tuula is very creative and creates the most beautiful treasures.  I was excited to learn I won her give away.

This is how the package arrived.  Look how pretty she wrapped this package. It is those little details that make things like this so special to receive.   Tuula it was almost too gorgeous to open.

She added this sweet little card to the package.

Toooooooooo Cute.  Loved it!!!!

Safely wrapped.

Not only was the outer wrapping beautiful the inner packaging was too sweet.  This was such a fun gift to open. Tuula you are too sweet and what a beautiful presentation.

There she is my win.  This  beautiful wind chime made from old french spoons and Tuula stamped them with french words.  I tried to hang them on a neutral door so you could see the beauty of this chime.

Look at those beautiful old vintage spoons.  They make the sweetest sounds I cannot wait to hang them out in the garden.

These are just beautiful.  Tuula a big hug from me.  I absolutely love this.  Thank you Suzan for hosting such a fun give away.  If you have not visited Suzan's blog or Tuula's blog or Etsy site you must jump over there now.
Suzan is the furniture whisper and she will leave you in awe of her beautiful furniture transformations and LOL after reading her posts.  Tuula you are so talented and I just have to say again I love love love my wind chimes.
Your talent and gift to me was so beautiful.
Have a great Sunday everyone.
