I have been so busy decorating and cleaning and working I havent posted in forever! But today I had to stop and show you some wonderful things! The pics are terrible as usual but bear with me cause the story is great! All these goodies below came from my best friend and *Sister* Debbie from News from Goat Creek. We have known each other for many years and been thru so much together. I got a box this week that included my ornies from the swap at Prim Pals and Deb had added some things for me. I got one of the snowman nodders she makes on an old bed spring,some rusty bells for my tree and some crow and sunflower salt dough bowl fillers. best of all was the book you see in the pic. Debbie is a fantastic cook and she sent me a recipe book filled with all her family recipes. When I opened the book and started to read her note I was so overwhelmed with emotion I cried. Such a wonderful heartfelt gift. Thanks Deb from the bottom of my heart...again! Love ya! The very next day I get another package and it is my swap package from Lorna at Live Oak Primitive Peddler. We did the Christmas swap at Prim Pals Forum and I was so pleased to have Lorna as a partner! I LOVE the wreath and she of course knew I loved Crows. I have it hung on my french doors and will take more pics later. She also made me the cutest gingerbread man and a crow and candy cane ornie. Thanks so much Lorna I love everything! You can see what I sent Lorna over at her blog!
My son is home from University! Im so excited to have him home even though he wasnt too far away and I did get to see him. As you can see Chance(the 85 pound lap dog) is happy he is home too! We missed having Aidan here to add some life to this big ole house! Now....if I could just get him to do some work for me...hehe!
Hope you have all had a great week! I am off to do more cleaning and decorating and maybe even a little wrapping! Hugs!
