White Wednesday - Courtesy of the Red Shed

Did you all hear me squealin' from here to Texas awhile back?  Back in April, I'd tossed my entry into the ring for a great giveaway over at The Red Shed and went on my merry way. The Brimfield trip in May put me seriously behind on my blog reading.  I finally started catching up at the end of May and read that the winner of the giveaway had been announced on May 9th. I think my heart actually stopped for a moment when I saw that the lucky winner was Moi!!!!!!!!!!

I've been dreaming about a shopping trip to France with the 'Red Shed Girls' since I first learned about their tours; yesterday the brocante came to me.
 Just look at this postal courier bag....a perfect summer bag, complete with interior pockets to keep things organized.
A tiny bit of trivia about me...I don't wear perfume, room fresheners give me headaches, and the only scent that I truly crave for my home is lavender. Guess what this beautiful sachet is filled with? My beloved lavender...sigh!
 Look at the very cool jar, filled with white buttons...and a bar of delicious French soap. 
A book of poetry, sweet treats and a bicyclists map...
 ...mounted on linen. I've got the perfect spot in the office for it. 
 A packet of ephemera made me swoon.  
 You all know how I feel about old paper.
 This huge stack of old documents and cards is just dreamy.
 A fabric sample, a bit of lace and did you catch that beautiful necklace in this photo?
 I'm sure I've forgotten something.  I was the fortunate recipient of the most generous giveaway ever, and I want to shout out a big  "THANK YOU" to the Red Shed...unpacking that box was better than Christmas!  

I'm linking up with Faded Charm for White Wednesday - check it out!
