My winnings from Lily Cait!
Earlier this month I joined in the fun for the 2008 Ultimate Blog Party and I listed some of my top choices of things I would loved to win.

Imagine my suprise when I was informed that I was a winner !

Even better yet, my prize was one of my top three choices, a $25 gift certificate from Lily Cait! They have some really cute hair accessories on their website that I wanted to win for our little foster daughters.

After much deliberation, I chose three bows. The beauty of this gift from Lily Cait was that I wasn't charged shipping and handling so I got to use the full $25 (actually $26) on their products! And these bows arrived in my mailbox before I even returned from my business trip.

The picture I took of my three bows does not do them justice so I've pulled images from Lily Cait's website so you can better see how fabulous they are!


Itsy Bitsy Lollipop Bow Clippie (mine is purple)

Butterfly Bow Clippie (mine is a classic single bow, in a pretty apple green)

Frog Princess Whimsey Bow Clippie (this is my absolute favorite!)

If you haven't already visited Lily Cait's website you really need to hurry over there and check out all the lovely goodies they have to offer!

Thanks Lily Cait for your generous gifts! I can't wait to use them on our little girls.

I hope that you see this..

I was looking at old posts on fosterparents.com & saw that you were looking for directions on hair bows.

This is a great site for in the future--when you're not getting lucky and winning them!
