On a winning streak

Don't hate me.  I'd hate me, if i was not me, and kept seeing some lucky gal repeatedly win bloggy giveaways.  But i am me, so it wouldn't be good to hate me.  Instead, this friggin' rocks!


SQUEAL!!!


But seriously, i am not blogging about my rather bizarre string of luck to rub it in your faces, i hope you know.  I am blogging about it to give thanks and recognition to those that offered the giveaways.  To the oodles of people who read mine (ahem.)

That being said....thank you Strictly Simple Style and Swalla Studio for the abstract zodiac painting.  I chose Libra, my month.  It felt wrong picking anything else!  This will look perfect in the basement with this color scheme.




And thank you Centsational Girl and Modern Tribe-hopefully i will be owning a nice piece of something or other by Jonathon Adler in the near future!  Something ceramic, and something white!



Missy Salsa and Nita from Mod Vintage Life gave me a blog award, so thank you sweet ladies! Missy is a survivor if i ever saw one, so please go give her some love.  And you must check out Nita's fabulous christmas mantel...vintage through and through.  Love those gals.

However, good winnings and awards aside, i can't help but feel anxious and terribly on edge that something atrocious is going to happen to even things out.  I'd like to think this is the universe's way of thanking me for doing the type of work i do and making this type of crap pay, but what i'd "like to think" is very much different than the way i actually do think.  Help!

Congrats! I'm sure you earned every win with karma points!

Have fun with your loot, and don't worry about good or bad luck; it doesn't do much good to worry about such things!

Tammy @BeatriceBanks said...

Congrats on all your wins and awards! How fun! Sounds like you're having an early Christmas! I'm over here from Nita's. She gave me an award too so I'm checking out the other blogs. I'm your newest follower and would be delighted to have you follow me back! Looking forward to browsing around some more in your lovely blog.
Have a nice evening~Tammy

Whoo Hoo! Winning is fun! I'm glad you have been so lucky! The way to 'even out the karma' is to do a giveaway yourself. Well that's my theory anyway! Enjoy you wins, you deserve them! hugs, Linda

Thanks for stopping by and checking out Raisin pig. The pug story is super funny, I do something similar with my brother in law...I get him things that drive my sister nuts! lol One year I bought him these homer simpson slippers: http://www.ukexpert.co.uk/photopost/general-humour-and-fun/p18606-homer-simpson-slippers.html

Holy cow! You're on a roll. :)

Haha, don't you hate the sense or feeling of doom once too many good things in a row have happened?! I think I've got your bad luck streak covered, so you can just enjoy your winnings!

Thanks for your comment on my post too...I really appreciated it. You're right, it's my blog and I can do what I want with it!! Which means if I feel like having a pity party on there, it's my party and I can cry when I want to! :-)

I don't always comment, but I do always read...I like your random musings, I think they make your blog all that much better!

Thanks again for your kind words, I really really appreciate them!

Loving you winning! If it can't be me I glad it is one of my blogging buddies. I just need to touch you so the luck will rub off.
I should remember that I am very lucky with my "12 Days of Christmas" celebration. I have published an update. Hop over for a visit. Hugs, Ginger
