Thank You Melody


Look what I found in my letter box!!! I've named him Ralph!!


Ralph came wrapped up in this beautiful lettuce green parcel with a happy flower card.
He came with lots of friends and these beautiful fussy cut hexagon coasters. Ralph is 3rd from the left. He asked me to tell you that there's a great tutorial for these coasters over at the House On The Side Of the Hill blog.
Also filling the parcel were these fabulous picnic glasses. I didn't have any practical travel glasses so these are a very welcome addition to Daisyland!! There's Ralph and his friends with their hearts of gold.

There was also a raffle ticket that might win me this amazing quilt made by the Kilmore Quilters.

If I won I know how I'd celebrate - a happy picnic with my new glasses and beautiful coasters.

I was so lucky to be the winner of a recent giveaway by Melody from the House on the Side Of The Hill blog. My amazing prize is gift each month for a year!! I nearly fell off my chair when I saw I'd won. Thank you Melody, I love this lovely parcel of goodies!! You sure know how to make some one's day!!

And thanks little Ralph and his friends for being so sweet!

Luckily Ralph has lots and lots of siblings, some of whom are waiting to jump into your next parcel. I'm so glad you won my giveaway, I'm having a lot of fun planning my pressies for you.

Wow! Pressies for a whole year! That is some giveaway! Surely that parcel contained enough for three months of the year! The coasters are really lovely! And as for Ralph?! Is he still around? Or has he gone the way of some of his mates! YUM!

Lucky duck Rach! What a great prize! Those coasters are way too sweet!

Karen said...

I wonder if Melody remembers to sleep sometimes, or is she always busy making these lovely goodies.
It all looks so wonderful!

Shay said...

I think you won the coolest giveaway ever. Imagine getting something cute and thoughtful every single month!

You really shouldn't name things you're ultimately going to eat . It just makes it harder when the inevitable happens.

Terry said...

Hi Ralph may you live long and prosper. Or alternatively enjoy champagne float.
Wonderful win

Congrats on the win Rachael...and wow, presents for a year...you certainly scored!!!

Mary said...

Fantastic! The little ladybugs alone would be enough to make my day :) But a whole year of gifts is such a wonderful prize!!!

Melissa P said...

What a great gift to win! And Ralph...what a cutie. He and his friends will keep you smiling all through Spring and beyond.

Lucky you, Rachael! Everything is so beautiful! Those coasters are lovely, and I can't believe that awesome quilt in the raffle card! Wow! That would be something to see up close!

OH! I just googled the quilt, and I found a close up (if you click on it) on Jindi's blog at

The quilting is amazing on it! Wow!

Donna said...

Ralph is so cute! He brought some nice gifts with him, too. What a polite little house bug. He must have an awesome mother!

Heidi said...

Awesome !
You are lucky!
And how's Ralph doing ?

Marg said...

How wonderful, what a fabulous win. Lucky you to be receiving such gorgeous presies for 12 months.
I hope Ralph lives a long and prosperous life, bug lives are approx 24 hours (?) but doubt that he'll last much longer than that.
Love the coasters, that's a great idea.

Janet said...

What a great win, love the Ralph and friends. I nearly bought the fabrics in the hexagons the other day thinking they'd be great for just that. Alas, I had to leave it in the shop.

Kathie said...

Karen said...

Those coasters are so cute and what a great prize, don't you just love getting parcels in the mail :-) Ralph is cute but he wouldn't last long in this house, his looks would only make him more attractive!
