My Son has always been an Apple devotee and I have been able to use his hand-me-down computers. A pretty good deal for me since over the last 15+ years I only had to purchase one unit. My luck finally ran out last week.
My old Mac finally wore out and Son was not upgrading anytime soon. 

Welcome MacBook Pro
Isn't he nice? Very slim and trim, not like his Momma.

This is his favorite site. How about you?

Do you see the extras in this picture?
In addition to sharing my new baby I wanted to share a couple of gifts that I recently received from two very special bloggers. Bloggers have the most wonderful giveaways. Don't you agree? I have thanked both these generous bloggers by email and through their blogs however I want to give a shout out to you!

Mariette of Mariette's Back to Basics awarded this beautiful "French Country Style Lavender Sachet" and I was the winner.

The sachet is so beautifully made and the aroma is wonderfully relaxing.  The attention to detail is amazing. Please click on the link above to experience Mariette's lovely blog. If you love flowers you're gonna love her blog. Thank you Mariette.

I recently won a giveaway at Dee's A Lapin Life. Dee's gift was these fantastic "Black Chalkboard Pots"
Aren't these the cutest things you have seen?
My Daughter was visiting when these arrived. She joined in the fun as we opened these beautiful pots. They arrived complete with chalk and the most wonderful smelling vanilla candle.  The jute makes these little pots a perfect fit in my kitchen. Look for them to appear in a tablescape soon. Use the link above to visit Dee to see what other treasures she is creating. Thank you Dee!

We are blessed with many wonderful and caring bloggers who have become friends. Talent is abundant in this community. You are inspiring.
Thank you for visiting.
I am joining the following gracious hostesses:

I have been MIA for a short time, while visiting with family houseguests and shopping for Mac. I have been working on several projects and I will be publishing several this week. Keep an eye peeled for me.

Please leave a comment so I will know that you visited.

Lucky you ! Lavender is always my favourite fragrance. Remind me Provence. The new Mac is pretty. I think it's also light. Enjoy playing the gadget.

WOW! Your new Mac is nice and slim.
I enjoy your site too.

Mariette does have wonderful talent. The sachet is beautiful and I'm sure the lavender scent has filled the room.

Thanks for posting the pots. I enjoyed making them. I can't wait to see how you use them in your tablescape.

I am happy to see you back posting, Ginger. Lovely gifts that you received. Aren't other bloggers grand? Have a great night-xo Diana

Mariette said...

Dearest Ginger,

Congratulations on your MacBook Pro! And thanks a million for mentioning my French Country Style lavender sachet. Just timely as today I launched my brandnew Zen Cart website. Not a MacBook Pro for me but a more professional website for my Boutique.

Lots of love,

I first went to Mac a year ago....Oh what a joy! I will never go back!

Thanks for visiting me @ DIYduJour! Your silver case was a great purchase! So, does the Mrs. Wright keep the silver polished for awhile? I have used the polishing wipes, but I'm not sure if that's just a shortcut. The shine does not last.

Also, congrats on your two giveaways!!

P.S...I am now hosting a blog hop party on Fridays--just link your blog; no project links required! Hope to see you then!
