Mary at MARY'S WRITING NOOK just warned me about my address showing here. I don't know how to delete this picture so if there's any BOOGER BEARS out there fixing to come to my house, BEWARE because my BIG, STRONG, FEARLESS man has a BIG, SAWED-OFF SHOTGUN and he doesn't cotton to strangers hanging around our house!!!
I am sooo careful to never post my grandchildren's pictures on here; you just can't be too careful with them, but I just never thought about my address. THANK YOU, MARY...I will be more careful in the future. I do appreciate the warning. Others....take heed of Mary's warning. The next time, I will cover my address..... My doorbell rang ...when I went to the door, THIS was sitting in my shabby, front porch swing....

Now, just a FEW days ago, I ordered something from KATHLEEN GRACE over at KATHY'S COTTAGE but I KNOW this can't be it because it was just a few days ago.....but, upon picking the package up, I see that it IS from Kathleen Grace. GOOD GRIEF, that is the fasting mailing I've ever had, I do believe...And, I see that cute sticker on the front! Thank you so much for the fastness of this, KATHY.....

AHHHHH, how beautiful ! And look at those 2 precious tags, lace trimmed. What a nice surprise to get those.....

I adore these, Kathy.....Thank you sooooo much!

And, here's my PINK this precious or what! I love it !! And, I love it hanging on my green cabinet. I think I could hang it just about anywhere and it would be precious! It would also be so adorable hanging on my antique dresser in the pink bedroom......

And, the only thing better than pink is....PINK AND GREEN. So pretty! What awesome tags you've added, KATHY..."HUGS AND KISSES" and "TRUE LOVE" on little lace pieces. Just so sweet...sweet enough to eat, nearly!

I am so thrilled with my beautiful, stuffed hearts with their fabulous embellishments. The tags are so sweet and I love the HENS IN DAISIES tag, as well.

Ladies, if you'd like to check out some pretty handmade item, be sure to check Kathleen Grace's site...She really makes some lovely things. I am so pleased with my hearts......

Thanks again, Kathy girl......I really love both of the beautiful hearts!

Have a HEARTfelt day ~

Good Morning BJ,
You got the coffee ready? I need a big cup to keep me awake. We have been without elecricity for 11 hours. It just came back on around 3:15.m. I have posted all about it on my today's post. I love the goodies you received in the mail. The little tags with lace are adorable. I bet she put alot of time into doing that. I love the hearts as well. I'm a BIG heart fan myself. I've got to have my hearts. "THANK YOU" for sharing such beautiful things with us. The pink and green color are just beautiful together. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours. "THANKS" for the coffee.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

She certainly does beautiful work!! I also love all the goodies you found at the thrift shops the other day...isn't it amazing what some people get rid of? Their loss, our gain:-) xoxo

Adrienne said...

Such wonderful hearts. I love Kathy's work and I'm so glad you shared your special package with us. I love where you put them. Hmmm, maybe I need one! Wish I lived close enough to stop by for a warm cup of tea, a chat and a peek at your precious hearts. ~Adrienne~

Linda said...

Oh, packages in the mail are so fun. I love, love, your beautiful hearts and sweet tags too.
Kathy is one sweet lady and very talented too.
Enjoy your pretties. Hugs, Linda

Karen said...

I'm new to your blog and have been enjoying it so much. I would like to caution you about something're address on the package you just received gives weirdos too much information...and there are weirdos out there. I don't know how they do it, but on other blogs they smear the addresses so you can't read them. Just a suggestion. (I lived on
14th street when we lived in Lubbock about 15 years ago...small world!)

Mary said...


Wow! Such fast mailing and some very awesome goodies. I love ALL of the things you received. The hen in daisies tag is adorable, as are the other tags. I'm going to check out your friend's site.

Have a wonderful day. It's freezing here with a very strong wind. I'm staying in.


Mary said...

PS Use caution when posting photos of packages. Your address can be seen quite clearly when the photo is enlarged.
