A HEARTFELT "THANK YOU" .......


THIS.....
LEFT....
THIS for me today...
and when I opened it...
*
I found the most DELIGHTFUL gifts....ever !!
*
THE cutest M.E. mini photo frames...
WITH CHERRIES .......!!
*
AND.....POPCORN...MOM & POP CORN...
not just ANY popcorn...
RED popcorn..
It musta been made just for ME !!
;o)

*
This is the CUTEST CHERRY cup in the world...
I just LOVE it !! OOO...I do....I LOVE IT !!
AND
I finally got to a little sweet card, tied up with
pretty ribbons and net...... and I saw that it was from my
brand new friend, VALARIE at GLIMPSE OF MY WORLD.
Thank you, Valarie, for this box of precious things.
I just love every single bit of it.....
HOW DID YOU KNOW ??
*
This is going to be PERFECT for those bacon drippings..
oh, yes.....I know they aren't good for us...but I do use a tiny bit, every now and then...
This cutie will be on my stove or cabinet at all times...so I can enjoy looking at the cute thing!
*
This photo above is of VALARIE'S breakfast room....it's so adorable
I can hardly stand it....
She can decorate to beat the band and she has the sweetest personality...
Be sure to go over if you haven't already...meet her and see for yourself
how adorable her BLUE cottage is....
*
As you can see, Valarie and I LOVE the
blacks, whites and reds together...
TWO GREAT MINDS, I'd say !! (tee hee)
BLESSINGS....

Raggedy Girl said...

What a wonderful gift. And your friends room just gave me an inspiration. She had little chair toppers and I have old quilted curtain that I took down from my dining room windows and wondered what to do with them and they would make darling chair toppers. Anyway great post.
