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!

Jingle Boo and other Treats..

Now in the SHOP....

The JINGLE BOO bracelet!

I am in love with the pumpkin jingle bells!

Oh my goodness! I have received so many wonderful goodies in the mail this week! This Christmas in September package is from my dear sister in England, Lindsay! She sent wonderful books for the girls and...

a Lucky Duck for me!

She also sent me the most unique necklace with a fossil inside! Amazing!

Jessica sent Mandy a lovely note along with the picture of a surfboard (that Mandy had requested) that she had designed and look at the card that Lindsay sent to me! The buttons are birdies!:) I love the card- so sweet! The seashell was for Katie and the little beach house was for Mandy. The beach houses are for rent when you stay all day. Lindsay told me they have a little table and chairs and a place to make tea. So charming! Thank you so much Lindsay and Jessica!

Then, look what flew my way! My darling buddy, Heather, sent me the most gorgeous POTTERY BARN crows! They put my $1 store crows to shame! Thank you so much, Heather! They have already made themselves at home, as you can see.:)

My fabulous friend, Val, was my partner in The Ghoulishly Glamorous Halloween Swap. She certainly spoiled me! A wonderful recipe book...

decorative cones, fancy towels, cupcake toppers, ghoulish gloves full of candy!

and my favorite- a Fall apron! Val- You know me so well!:)

Look at the fun plaque...

the cute little trick or treater plaque, pumpkin tassel, candy corn container, fun book and Mr. Crow to guard all of it!:) Check out the gorgeous glittered personalized pumpkins! I LOVE them! Thanks so much, Val!

I also received the sweetest package full of handmade cards from my wonderful friend, Lori! She is so talented! I told her she should open an etsy shop! Thank you so much, Lori!

Now I need to get busy on my swaps! Hope you all have the most wonderful weekend!:)
