Lookie what I received in the mail this week!

Wow, is it really Thursday evening already!?  Where does the time go.  I've been crafting away this week and working outside when I can, but the weather has been mostly cold and windy.  It's been kinda depressing after the wonderful weather last week, but since I received TWO giveaway win packages I couldn't be happier!

First off, I won a giveaway from Misi over at  1890 Gable House.  She was so generous!  I received a box FULL of her wonderful waxed fruit.  It was nicely packaged with bumble bee paper and each piece was individually wrapped in bubble wrap.   They smell divine and I can tell she worked very hard on these - they are lovely!  Misi also included a cute twine-wrapped heart with tag - you can see it in the bowl of fruit in the upper left.   Thank you so much Misi! I feel very blessed to have won your giveaway.

Next, I was lucky enough to be one of the winners in the recent giveaway held at the TDIPT blog.   The wonderful artisans there donated some great prizes and I won a Cow from Karin at Country Keepsakes.  Let me tell you, this cow is so well made and truly a piece of art - I just love it!  Thank you Karin and all the lovely ladies over at TDIPT!

Hope your week is going well everyone and that you have a blessed weekend.  We plan to have friends for dinner on Sunday....mmmm....steak, twice baked potatoes and cream puffs for dessert!  Yummmm

    The days are whizzing by here. I've also been working outside all that I can, with crafting in-between and oh yeah... taking care of the family and home. The day is over before I know it and it seems like it just started, lol. Oh well, at least we are healthy enough to do these things, right? Praise the Lord for that!
