It was almost like winning the lottery. The postal carrier came to the door yesterday to deliver the prize I'd won on one of my favorite blog sites and to say that I was excited is an understatement. Who would have thought that someone my age could turn cartwheels? Not that I actually turned any but I wanted to. Every since I found out my entry had been picked by her lovely daughters, thanks girls I owe you one, I've been over the top in the excitement department.

Heather from Rose Hill Designs has one of the happiest most cheerful sites to visit. Her illustrations are so upbeat and unbelievably adorable. She has a mouse named Madeline, a name I've always been fond of, who is the most charming mouse I've ever seen. If you haven't been to Heather's site you are missing out on a real treat.

Because I'm so excited about my prize I'm going to show you now what was in that package.

First thing I found when opening the package is this lovely book bag. It's painted with one of the cutest ballerina frogs that I've ever seen.  Heather filled this bag with some of the dearest little treasures.

She didn't skimp on them either. There are three or four of each piece of art work and I'm planning on sharing these little gems with my two sisters. They're both big fans of Heather's work so they're going to love what I'm sending their way.

The prize was supposed to be this wonderful art book where Heather has a double page layout of her work and a $25.00 gift card from Barnes and Noble. Now you see what a generous person Heather is.

Here are Heather's pages in the book. The title of the book is "100 ILLUSTRATIONS 2011 ANNUAL" and it can be purchased at Barnes and Noble. It's a wonderful book and I've enjoyed going through it and plan on spending even more time looking at all of the amazing works inside.

Thanks again Heather. I love my prize.

As always, thanks for stopping by.

Wow, I am jealous - that's what I get for gading about. You are right, I love Heather's illustrations, especially Madeline. I fell in love with her the first time I saw her.

Daisy is doing amazingly well and sends her love and sloppy kisses.
