Awhile back, I played the PAY IT FORWARD with Mary of LITTLE RED HOUSE came today!! WOW, what an exciting day for me today!! It's just so much fun to get something, especially PACKAGES, in the mail ........

OOOOOOO,...... What a BEAUTIFUL tea cup and saucer filled to the brim with the most lovely silk flowers. Oh, MARY...I do just love it! The colors are just perfect and it all looks so springy and fresh. Yep...I love it, love it, LOVE IT !!
Thank you very much.
Isn't it just beautiful !! It looks just PERFECT on my mantel in the dining room...I am VERY proud of it ! How wonderful it is to have something in your home that reminds you of such sweet, sweet friends. Again, Mary, thank you so much.


I am in wonderment....I received another package that came as a TOTAL surprise.....

I can see it is from the SISTERS, KARI & KIJSA.....but, I haven't ordered anything....???..... ????? I had ordered the cute rabbit tea towel but I have already received IT.....?????

OMGosh....wait a minute....It's the little rabbit pillow that matches the little tea towel I ordered from them not long ago.......?????......??????? How cute he cute. It's the cutest little pillow I've ever seen. But...????? My first thought is..."OMGosh, they have mailed this to the wrong person!"

Oh.... And, that precious framed print........the one the SISTERS made....?????......?????? But....but....I didn't order anything!!

What a fabulous drawing and I LOVE this cute frame with the saucy black ribbon.....and the words! Such fabulous wording!! It is going to go on MY computer desk, so that I can enjoy it every day while I am in blogland....

OHHHH, MY GOODNESS...this is something sweet KRISTINA of SHABBILY EVER AFTER ordered, FOR ME ! The little rabbit pillow is a gift from KRISTINA and the framed print from KARI & KIJSA. I am just about to have a Texas RunAway here, I am so excited !!!!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH, LADIES. I am at a loss of words other than THANK YOU. I will so enjoy them both to the fullest.

Please click on the pictures to enlarge so you can read this sweet and precious card from KRISTINA...
What wonderful and caring friends....


Doesn't he look RIGHT AT HOME in that black wicker chair??? By golly.....he IS home !


And, I thank you ladies, every one, for the lovely teacup full of flowers, the fisty and sweet little linen rabbit pillow, the amazing print......and I love all my blog friends dearly.

Hi BJ I just stopped by to see what you've been up to while I've been away. What wonderful presents you received. Isn't it a fun surprise when someone shows their appreciation when you're totally not expecting it? Such a lovely blessing for you. The rabbit looks like he was custom made for that chair too!

Good Morning BJ,
I am feeling some better this morning and did a new post and out trying to catch up once again. I didn't even visit at all yesterday. WOW, what some beautiful goodies you received. I do love the Tea Cup and Saucer with the Silk Flowers in it. The Rabbit Pillow and the Framed picture are all just so beautiful. You are very well loved here in blogland. I read your previous post and I so love your Dining Room. I do love the Fireplace you have in there. It just looks so inviting and comfy there in your Dining Room. So, when are you going to have us all there for dinner? LOL. Maybe you could fix us all a Midnight Snack? LOL. I love all of the wooden things your hubby has made for you. My Parents used to make alot of wooden things and I have some things they have made me. When I get my new camera and get everything the way I want it, I will share some of my pictures. The rug you bought does look bigger in the picture. "THANK YOU" for sharing your Dining Room with us. I know it is a place where you and your Family get together and have a wonderful time. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.
