I Won!! Part 1

One day someone posted a url on a Etsy team thread for a cool and different Etsy treasury so I went and took a look. It contained all kinds of samples from different shops that are a part of a unique shop called *Sampler Village. I looked at all the items featured and left a comment that I thought this was a cool idea not really thinking anything of it after that. Come to find out, this whole treasury was going to be given away to someone and I was that lucky someone!! I have had the best time opening all kinds of packages from all kinds of shops. I would like to share these shops as a part of my thank you to them for their generosity and for making me feel like a queen for a few days. :) *Sampler Village Shop offers monthly sampler boxes with an amazing variety of items from many different shops.

The first shop I want to share is Mammygram.Tracy is from Iowa and her shop contains a fun mix of cards, candy and a bit of jewelry but I think the most touching listing in her shop is the Mammygram which includes a group of encouraging cards each containing a little gift for women going through the "adventure" of breast cancer.

Tracy sent me TWO adorable Fight Like a Girl necklaces.  My 3 year old granddaughter was watching me open my packages and when she saw there were two necklaces she said, "Look, Gramma there is one for me!!" Of course, she was right. She LOVES her new necklace. Thank you Tracy!

The second shop is Daily Repose owned by Shelli in Texas featuring beautiful handcrafted eco-friendly soaps and candles. 

Shelli contacted me and let me pick the scent of soap I would like for her to send to me and I chose Green Tea scented. My soap came SO delightfully packaged in a darling little muslin bag and smells so lovely! Thank you Shelli!

The next package brings us to Pookaberry Candle Shop owned by Danielle from New Hampshire who makes the most adorable, yummy looking candles that smell as yummy as they look!

I opened my box and found this sweet candle that we thought smelled like candy corn but we lit it and it was pumpkin pie...yummm!  Thank you Danielle!

And last for now, but certainly not least....Goatie Girls Goat Milk Soaps and Lotions by Ginger and her flock of Goatie Girls from Arkansas . I chose Cherry Blossoms scent and I received a whole passel of beautiful products to sample. It was like digging out goodies from my Christmas Stocking! Lotions and soap and lip balm and sugar scrubs....oh my! The first thing you should know is, I adore goats. Goatie Girl product labels feature pictures of the goats who give their milk to make these lovely cute! 

These were just four of the boxes that I've received so far...stay tuned for more in the future! :)

blessings, Zuda Gay

That is so much fun. I think we should do something like this with the CASTTEAM.
