~Look What The Mailman Brought Me~

Good Tuesday evening everyone. I wanted to share with you some wonderful things that were waiting for me when we returned from our vacation. I was the lucky winner of a birthday giveaway. I won this primtastic bonnet from Jenn at Bittersweet Prims. I kind of won this by default because Jenn had to pick two winners. I'm perfectly fine winning this way. Hey I will take a homemade prim creation any time I can get one! Look at this perfectly prim goody. This is the first bonnet I have ever had. Now I know why so many ladies are fascinated with them. For now it is hanging on the side of a ladder that sits on the hearth of our fireplace. Eventually I will have it hanging from a peg shelf.

Next I participated in another fabulous swap hosted by none other than Char from The Pickled Pepper Patch. This swap was a textile swap. My partner was Tammy from A Primitive Place. I absolutely love everything Tammy sent. She is very passionate about prims and she is also a wonderful crafter. Isn't that swatch of fabric the best. How does something that simple give a girl such pleasure!

These stockings will just be perfect hanging at the fireplace this Christmas. I just think they are so darn precious. I may have to ask Tammy to make me a couple more of them.

This pillow sits on my couch. I love it.

Last but not least, Tammy was very generous with hand towels, fingertip towels and napkins. At least I think they are napkins. I'm really contemplating framing them.
I really want to than Jenn and Tammy for being so generous with their giving. One day soon I will be having a giveaway so I can possibly give back to someone something just as special as they have so graciously given to me.

That's all for now. I think I hear my bed pillow calling me. I hope everyone had a fabulous Tuesday and I hope the week ahead brings you many happy moments and tons of blessings.


ps. Tammy I'm hoping your swap package makes it to you tomorrow.

Sun, Sand and Seafood

Sorry but I'm in a bit of a rush here this morning. We just got back this morning at 1:00 am. from a fantastic two week Camping Trip in Myrtle Beach. There is nothing like a glowing suntan from the sun, warm or rather hot sand between your toes and an overabundance of seafood in your tummy! I have so much to post about but right now I hear the camper calling my name saying "Unload me, Unload me." Okay, so maybe that is my hubby I'm hearing. I will try to make it back this evening to let everyone know what has been going on with me.

I have so many friends I need to check on and so many emails to respond too. Two weeks away from the computer is too long!

Later my friend,
Hugs and Blessings,
