THE BIRDS STARTED SINGING...
THE FLOWERS RAISED THEIR DROOPY LITTLE FACES....
.....because I saw THIS pull up in front of my house...
and he had a PACKAGE....
for MOI...
AND when I opened it.....
This lovely Christmas Table Runner...
it is just beautiful..
 The sweetest heart  shaped measuring spoons..
I just love them....
A journal in BLACK AND WHITE....*so thrilled
oh, and little cupcake stencils...can't wait to try these out with some POWDERED SUGAR...
....give me an AMEN !   

All this bloggy love came to me from one of the sweetest ladies around...and I love her lots...






She sent this to me out of the goodness of her heart...no special reason...and there's not much better thing on Earth than a
JUST BECAUSE PRESENT....
"Thank you, Kathleen. I love everything you sent and will use it all
and I'll be smiling the whole time."

All THAT just because?! Maybe it is because you are just TOO SWEET! Oh, and they are great colors for you too!

P.S. I'm not sure that fried chicken in your previous post would have made it to the salad. There's never been a fried chicken that could escape my plate, it's my favorite....along side mashed potatoes of course. Although... I had my first fried chicken and waffles while in Austin Texas recently. I have to say it was a dinning pleasure I hope to repeat.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

Good morning bj, We are in Fl again for Thanksgiving and the last Gator football game we will attend this season. Then home to stay for the next few months. I am so thankful to stay home for the winter. This has been the busiest year we have ever had. Fun times which I am thankful for but home is where my heart is.

What a fabulous gift you received to brighten your day. To heck with housework. It is more fun to play. Do housework another day. Put on some great music and clean away. I play the music from Mama Mia! It works for me. Smile!

Love your photos of your treasures. Lucky you. It is no surprise to me that you are loved.

Congrats to Jane. Lucky girl!

Wishing you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving my dear sister friend.
Blessings and love, Jeanne
