Taken by Storm

You may remember that recently I posted about the loveliest little online shop,
McMaster & Storm. What you may not realize (and neither did I at the time because I can be a little thick headed) is that they are the same McMaster & Storm that were featured in a Country Living Magazine article a while back. How I failed to connect those dots initially I have no idea. I probably had not had enough coffee that day or something.

Anyway, shortly after my mini-post about my love for their petite online department store, I entered a Giveaway Drawing on their blog on Valentines Day. I could not believe my luck when I found out that I won only a few days later! Joy, oh joy!!

When my lovely "organizing" themed package arrived on my doorstep I was downright giddy. And then I opened it up and it was even better than I dreamed!

Everything was wrapped so springy and happy, with sweet personal notes attached to each item...

and each item had a wonderful vintage quality, while still being perfectly practical in use. I am a strong believer that you won't have to choose between form & function if you just look hard enough, and these sweet items just proved that point once again!

Thanks so much to Kara and Darcy for this precious, happy, perfect package - all red and pink and oh so pretty!

I am such a lucky girl and I can't wait to put every single thing to use...

  1. You lucky girl! I have visited their brick and mortar shop. Absolutely magical. Lots of fabulous goodness packed in a small space. These ladies know what we love, Pam

  2. You are so lucky! I have been a fan of their stuff since Country Living featured them. I just found your blog no long ago and I love it!!!! Hope to check back soon. I have been checking your old posts and I love that organizer's pretty cover, I think I will try to make one.

    Take care


  3. There's no one who I think would be overcome with bliss at winning than you. You should be their poster-child...hahaha. Good going!

  4. Lucky, lucky you. I'm so excited for you and your blessing. Couldn't have happened to a nicer blogger.


ok, really. tell me the truth... do these comments make me look fat?
