I won a prize from Peggy of Peggy's Mixed Up Art! blog in her OWOH giveway. It arrived in today's mail. It's a wee box, about 2-1/2" square. Isn't it cute!?

I love how the little girl has her hand on her hip and a very bossy look on her face. It's rather... cough, cough..... ME. And red too. One of my fave colors.

I opened the box to find this adorable polka dot tissue paper - I'm saving it. I'm sure I can find a use for it in my own collage work - just as soon as I can find time to clear a work space and DO some collage work.

And when I opened up the tissue paper, there was a tiny heart charm. I really like the way it's pulsing - radiating - aura glowing - however you want to describe the little rays surrounding it. It reminds me of Mexican milagros.

For the last six weeks or so I've been wearing a tiny snowman charm on a chain around my neck. I think it worked "like a charm" as we had a VERY snowy January. We're finally melting away some of that white, cold, icy stuff and getting some above freezing temps, and now that I've finally started to believe winter was fading, we've got a week's worth of snow in the weather forecast - ARGH! NO! I'm done with winter, please. I think it's definitely time to switch necklaces - I'm going to put this little heart on tomorrow.

Thanks again, Peggy, my gift is VERY MOI - I love it.

Congrats on winning a prize and yes, I think its time to put the snowman aside until next year. That sweet heart is going to look lovely on a necklace.
