Thank You, Cuisine Kathleen !!!!

I was so lucky to win Cuisine Kathleen’s First Anniversary Blog – Give Away !

I was ever so excited when I found the box (it was not a baby box, either !) on my front step, coming home from work.

I carefully opened the box and I was greeted by so many lovely things. I wanted to take pictures as I opened things up….but, I couldn’t wait – I was like a little kid on Christmas morning !

Look at the sweet glittery Christmas card…I thought it looked a lot like where Kathleen lives…we don’t have lighthouses in Colorado !


Inside the card , Kathleen wrote the sweetest things….. Did you know that we have the same initials ?? Kathleen said that she will leave her monogrammed items in her will for me, LOL !  Doesn’t she have the prettiest handwriting ??


Pottery Barn Mushroom Place Card holders…set of eight and they came with little cards too !



I was spoiled with Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma and Lenox – to name a few……Kathleen has wonderful taste !


Hand crafted glass ornament……so pretty !


Rooster napkins – Oh, I didn’t get a couple or even four – I got 8 yes – EIGHT ! Kathleen is no cheapskate…. Also napkin rings from Pottery Barn – to keep those roosters under control !


Sweet little candle holder…is so warm looking and fitting for a country home.

Williams – Sonoma Stack and Fill Pancake Molds – these look like fun ! I can hardly wait to try them !

Pottery Barn  - Star cookie cutters – don’t you think I can use these for napkins holders too ??


039 040

Fun soaps – I just never buy soap – I mean fancy soap – this is such a luxury !

Here is my Lenox Santa’s Toy Bag – I love him and looky he is giving me another present…. Pardon the dust on the shelf – my camera does capture EVERYTHING ! LOL !


Last but not least – this beautiful Lenox Cross Charm…. Again the my camera even captured the little “handcrafted by Lenox” sticker on the bottom that I forgot to remove !


Who you may ask yourself, is Cuisine Kathleen ?

I don’t know if I want to share her with those who might not know her…LOL ! 

Here is a link to Kathleen’s place….

I am warning you now…….


No, seriously – Kathleen posts the most beautiful and yummy food….I swear I gain about 5 pounds each time I visit ! Kathleen also has a fantastic collection of dishes – I haven’t asked her yet…where does she keep it all ?????? Kathleen also has a great sense of humor and she is a fun read ! Please give her a visit, if you haven’t already !

Thank you so much Kathleen for this grand giveaway and Congrats on your 1 year Blog Anniversary !

I am am privileged to call you one of my bloggy friends !

Hugs ~ Kammy
