About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

   I received the most wonderful package from my dear friend and swap partner, Joy!   She even thought of my girls!  Look at the precious birdie notebooks she made for them...

   The darling birdie notepad (that I have had my eyes on at Target!) and the sweet stamps!  Oh my goodness, look at the yummy M&M's, too!

   Mandy has been working on her writing and I do believe this will be her new writing notebook.  She loves it!

   Everything, and I mean everything that Joy creates is amazing and so, well...  joyful!   Look at this precious little peep!  I am in LOVE!  Where do you get your ideas Joy??  I think you were born with a heart full of love and the gift of spreading happiness to all you know.:)

   Ooh, this just makes me giddy!  My own "L"- framed!  I think I may even start collecting them!

   A gorgeous birdie bookmark!!

      I think this is the cutest birdhouse I have EVER seen!  Thank you for sharing, Joy.  I know you wanted to keep it for yourself.:)

   Check out the darling green and white pin!  Joy makes them so go and check out her shop!
   BUTTONS!  My favorite!

   When I first opened this I let out the loudest squeal of delight!  I LOVE it, Joy!  And I adore the sweet tag: "Birds of a Feather, You and Me."  Sweetie, you are such a treasure.:)

   Do you see what I see???  The biggest ball of YUM!!  Yes, even Snookie the cat is in love with it!!  Joy, you must make these YUMMIES for your shop!!

   Pink and green- pure LOVE!  Joy, this book is so lovely.  Thank you so much.

   And last, but certainly not least Joy wrote me the most thoughtful and lovely letter.  That, my friends, was a precious gift in itself...  I will treasure it.

   Look at Joy's attention to detail.  Not only is she a one of kind, super fantastic friend, she is also one of the most creative and lovely people I know.  Stop by her blog and you will see what I mean.  Thank you so much, Sweetie.  I have sweet lovelies from you all over my house and I do think of you often and smile.:)

   And speaking of more joy!  The winner of my birdie swap giveaway is MISSY!  Congratulations, Sweetie Tweetie!  I will send your surprise to you ASAP!:)
