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!

Mail!

I love holidays, except for the fact that there is no mail. Boo. Today more than made up for the lack of mail on Saturday! Yippee! I got the loveliest stationery from my Night Owl buddy, Jamie! We did a little mini swap from our shops. She chose a Creme Brulee Button Bracelet and I chose her darling fabric notecards! Look at the darling forest critters and birdies! You must stop by Jamie's shop!

Then, my girls looked around the side of the house and saw some packages with their names on them! Oh my goodness! It was like Christmas had arrived! My new and, oh so talented, friend Jill suggested a swap for our girls and I was thrilled at the idea!
Look at all the wonderful and beautifully wrapped goodies! Colored pencils, personalized stationery, paper dolls, a bookmark, darling hair band, candy, a precious note, and a cookbook (to share) for Katie...

Jill even sent me a package! Lovely stationery (that she designed!), button soap- yes, you read that correctly! She found it during her vacation at the beach! and a gorgeous decorative hair clip on top...

Mandy received colored pencils, a sparkly butterfly ornament, personalized stationery (so special!), a personalized tag, Laffy Taffy, a sweet book mark, a lovely hair band, a sweet note, and a cook book to share!

Jill- Let's plan on doing this again at Christmas!:) Thanks for everything!

Nice packages! I too miss the mail on holidays.

Thank you for your kind words regarding the loss of my mom. Right now, it's hard as everything reminds me of her but I know time will make things easier.

I usually only get bills and junk mail in my mailbox so mail time is not very exciting.

Now we can look forward to that cute Nancy Drew pendant though and that will be a fun find!
