I won the "Sweet Life" gift basket on Book Room Reviews not too long ago, and I wanted to share with everyone all the goodies I received. Thanks to Tracy for holding the contest and to Mia King for her generosity. My husband is already claiming all of the macadamia nuts.

I just love the basket and the ribbon, the ribbon especially is a scrapbooker's dream--so shimmery. I was so excited when the UPS man came, that I barely contained my enthusiasm to take the photo of the package before I dismantled it. The first thing I did, after checking for Mia's signature on the books, was eat one of the delectable chocolate covered shortbread cookies. Yummy!

Thanks again to Tracy at Book Room Reviews. I love visiting her blog and I love her contests. You should check her out, here!

That ribbon is pretty! Looks like a great prize. Too bad Chuck ate most of the chocolate. :(

Serena said...

Thanks for stopping by, Mia. I can't wait to get to these books.

Serena said...

It's all good. Chuck will get his just desserts some day! LOL I'm really shocked that he has not died yet!
