Hey BUDdy

I've been dying to post the following news since last Friday, but I managed to refrain until I had received the prized earnings... and of course, the post wouldn't have been as good without a couple of snapshots.

I won my very first bloggers giveaway prize from deedee9:14! It was not a lone, not a duo... but a trio of Vintage Orange Mid-Century Japanesse Bud Vases.

As any giveaway winner, I couldn't wait for the day when I would see that little brown package lonesomely sitting on my porch, screaming my name. And that day was today!

Originally I planned on displaying them in my dinning room bookcase, in front of our caramelized orange wall, but I may move them out to the family room and set them on one of the white lacquer shelves we plan on mounting to the granite colored wall. It would be a great pop of color for the room.

Until then, they will rest on our bookcase which I refer to as the perfect "I Spy" picture book game. 

Many thanks to Dee for the amazing New Year's Day giveaway! 


  1. I'm so jealous.
    Congratulations - they're lovely.

  2. How fun! They look great on your bookcase!

  3. They were meant to be yours! They look so amazing in your room! Congratulations! I am so jealous!

  4. You're so lucky! I won a crocheted pot holder once, but not near as cool as those vases!!

  5. I literally screamed when I read about my winnings through an email. I love them!

  6. So good to see they found a happy home. Looks amazing!

  7. Those vases look so lovely up there on your shelf. Congrats on being the lucky gal who won them! I'm totally jealous! = )
