Thank you Evelyn!

I need to give a big Thank you to Evelyn from Lee Hill Primitives, I won her last giveaway.  My husband comes home for lunch everyday and brings in the mail.  Anything for me is left on the corner of the kitchen counter.  This is what I came home to on Wednesday.  I'm not sure if Shadow was guarding my package against thievery or just hiding it.  

Everything all wrapped up nice and prim.

Evelyn included a great framed photo of George, a copy of the Declaration of Independence, a copy of Harper's Weekly, some Confederate Currency, a feather quill, ink well and a VERY cute prim bunny.

The bunny found a home on my counter by the egg basket full of egg gourds.  The bunny likes to hop around the house, as I've found him on the kitchen floor and in the living room.  I just can't imagine how he manages it!  
George is hanging above my Great-Great Grandfathers walking cane in the window alcove in the living room.

The documents and ink well/quill are now on my writing desk - that belonged to my Great Grandfather, son-in-law of the owner of the walking cane.  I think maybe the bunny is coming in here in his travels, because I keep finding the quill pen out of the ink well.  

Evelyn,  Thank you so much for the prim goodies, as you can see they fit perfectly in my house.  I appreciate our online friendship.  
Have a great weekend. 


  1. Hmmm...a real mystery how the bunny hops around and the quill pen jumps out of the ink well. :) Beautiful new prims--congrats on your win!-Jan

  2. Great gifts~ I am thinking Shadow likes them~ hmmm it the feather still okay, giggles, Pumpkin & Buffy of course captured one of mine~ a toy now!!!
    smiles~ have a great day

  3. Wow - what a wonderful win! Isn't it funny how things tend to move around the house...seemingly on their own! I am sometimes amazed at the things I find in the cat food dish!

  4. Wonderful gifts Ann. Seems like they fit right in. Congrats. -Steph-

  6. Congratulation!
    Wonderful win, Ann.

  7. Ann, I am so happy that you won this giveaway and you are enjoying your new goodies. They fits perfectly with your decor. Love the pictures,hugs, Eve

  8. Way to go on winning! I really honestly can't figure out how that bunny hops around your house - nope - can't think of a thing...or two. I'm thinking Shadow was protecting your package and making sure it was safe for you to open - anything that comes in this house belongs to the "boys" first!

  9. Congratulations Ann.
    Evelyn always sends such wonderful things in her give aways...I was one of the recipients a couple years ago.

  10. Shadow is so funny, that is a cute picture!

    Congrats on your win! It IS perfect for your home, isn't it? I was going to enter Eve's giveaway because I am doing my living room in historic/primitive patriotic and I forgot to get over there and enter. Love the display on your old writing desk!

    Have a terrific week, my friend~

  11. What great items! And the bunny, we have had things do that at our house also!


  12. Yikes - I am a ways behind here....Congratulations on the wonderful win from Eve - I so love her style and decor - and she hostesses such wonderful giveaways. Well....count your blessings that it's just a moving bunny and quill - seems like one of my furry friends is a certified wool thief. Anything felted, or made of wool, is fair game in her world....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin


Thank you for visiting my blog. I'm so happy to "meet" you through blog land. ~Ann
