Giveaway Goodies Received!

I received a goody box in the mail yesterday from Debbie at Talking Trash! You may recall that I won the grand prize for her 100th post giveaway. The prize included a JUNK NECKLACE by Laurie of 2Chippys and Debbie wanted me to have my picture taken in it before giving it to my love, Mindy.

I must confess I did make one small modification. I lengthened the necklace with a rubber band. Without it, it fit my neck very tight and, frankly, it looked ridiculous! Or perhaps I should say MORE ridiculous! On me, that is. The necklace is great and will look fabulous on Mindy! But on me... not so much! Oh well.

The box contained other goodies as well...

A book called "Bedrooms." Lots of pictures in here. Now, I thought I knew my way around the bedroom. But this book contains a lot of tricks I haven't seen before. I'm talking about decorating, people! I will probably share this with Mindy. Maybe.

An Elvis Presley DVD called "GI Blues." Definitely a prize fit for a king, so I think I'll keep that.

A bottle of scented shimmer body spray called "Sexy." I sprayed one little spritz of this on my left arm. Let me tell you it shimmered and it smelled... uhmmm... let's just say very feminine! It says it's "alluring and sensual." I would tend to agree with that description. I then tried to wash it off and I can report that it has quite a lot of staying power as well! I might be smelling pretty sweet for a while, but this is definitely going to Mindy!

A bar of bath soap called "Morning Glory." At least I think it's bath soap. It might be facial cleanser. Who knows about these things? It's girlie. Mindy's. Nuff said!

A box of floral tea called "Tea Forte" and a fancy little ceramic tea bag holder. Now this I will be keeping for myself. I do enjoy a good cup of tea!

A terry lined leopard skin shower cap. I don't even know what to say about this! Do people really wear shower caps? I have no knowledge of this. I will look to Mindy for guidance!

And, last but not least, a personalized note card from Debbie. In her own handwriting. This is the place where she wrote, "Be sure and post a photo of you wearing it or I'll take it back!" As requested, dear. Thank you so much! You ROCK!

She'd take it back alright. After all, she has CD for backup!

Like I said, I never expected a man to win. For some reason, guys just don't want to play with us.
Maybe you need to tell 'em what a good time we're having.

This post truly had me laughing out loud. The shower cap sent me over the edge.

Ya, I just don't think that necklace is you, but Mindy's one lucky girl because you won. I'm sure she's look lovely in it.

You should have had the shower cap on your head in that picture!
