OMGsh! Look what I won!!

A little over a week ago I received a note from Lisa at Beyond the Cover that I had won her giveaway!! I was so excited! After a few days, and the fact that I have a 4 second memory, I kind of forgot to be looking for it. Then I received a wonderful package in the mail, all the way from my home state of California. When I realized what it was, I just about tore the package open.
Luckily I had the presence of mind to take a picture of the adorable wrapping. It's so simple yet so incredibly elegant and chic. LOVE the pink and brown color combination!
I love birds, so this tag is extra special to me. It's so sweet. I have it tucked not-to-far-away in a little drawer so that it will always make me smile when I open it.
Inside the package were two beautiful, and I do mean BEAUTIFUL note books. Now, these aren't your average notebooks. Just take a look at all the work and detail that went into making them. Lisa is one gifted and talented lady. I ooooh'ed and awwwwww'ed at the turn of every page.

There are so many details, that I'm sure I'll be finding new goodies every time I open them. Look at the gorgeous papers she used. If only you could see every page!

Lisa didn't miss the opportunity to add the shiniest details. I love this pink crystal she added to the outside of the notebook. And look at all the ribbons and lace that she added to the spine!

Here is the second notebook. It's made of clear plastic and just covered in flowers, and buttons and beautiful papers and so many details. I can't even begin to imagine the time and love that went into making each page!

I've seen things similar to this in other blogs, but I've never seen one in person. I have to tell you, it is impressive!! There is so much work involved and so many adorable and beautiful materials used.

I didn't get a picture of the spine on this heart shaped book, but it too had the best details and the most beautiful blue crystals hanging from it. I LOVE it and feel so lucky to have won!!!
But there's more....
In addition to the two gorgeous notebooks, I also got a bunch of beautiful lace and trims,

Vintage buttons, pearl pins (love them!), old stamps, cute flash cards....

Old sheet music, book pages, journal entries and this darling "bingo" card all dressed up by Lisa. I feel like I truly made out like a bandit.
Thank you, Lisa!!! I love all my goodies and I'm simply thrilled to have been the lucky winner!!
Patricia :o)
Ps: Be sure to visit Lisa at her blog, Beyond the Cover. She's a very sweet lady with a fun and beautiful blog. Just click on her blog name.

All those little goodies would make smiles on anyones face... Enjoy...

Lisa Macomber said...

So glad you loved your package!! Summer vacation starts tomorrow and hoping I will have more time to work on more creations such as these...they take so much time but...the end result is worth waiting for! I hope you find memorable photos to fill them up. I forgot to add a note that all the vintage papers in the bag have been treated with a product to help reduce the aging process of the paper, just in case you use in a project of something.

Enjoy! I am a follower of course and look foward to us bouncing back and forth between each others blogs... :)

and oh....where are you from here in California???

wow lucky girl! What a talented lady! Thanks for coming by & admiring my blooms....I only have one peony plant and I wish I had about 50. They are just the most amazing flowers. They only bloom once unfortunately!

The roses are David Austin ~ I believe it's the Heritage rose. This is the first year it has taken off & I am just thrilled w/ them. The fragrance is just 2die4.

Enjoy your notebooks!
