Fashion Friday-Winning A Dress

August 02, 2013
I would like to begin this post with a thank you to all of you who 

spend time preparing your blog, for sharing your lives, joys, talents, 

inspirations and dreams. Thank you to those who read my blog-the 

connections which I make with all of you add substance, interest 

and joy to mine!   

I follow a variety of blogs and this brings me to one of my favorite 

photography blogs: 

 Photo by: A Rural Journal

A Rural Journal - Nancy is the creator of this beautiful photographic

journey of her Rural life in Nebraska.  I encourage you to hop on 

over for a visit-you will leave a little happier-I promise. So, it was 

about a month ago Nancy had a giveaway...

I have never ever entered a giveaway before-but when I saw

this dress I was taken with it! I decided to enter Nancy's contest and 

let the chips fall where they may- Oh, I knew I would not be able to 

wear this darling dress- but I knew I had a daughter who would!  

                                Dress From Shabby Apple

Whoo Hoo!! I won!  Yes, I won!  Honestly I really do not remember

ever winning a single thing in my life...

Well, the dress came in the mail just in time for our Destin Trip.  

The dress is such a beautiful color, so feminine and a perfect fit.

A big shout out to Nancy for hosting the contest and to Shabby 

Apple for such quality merchandise.  No reimbursement here-

just a big cart full of appreciation!
