Helllloooooo.......anyone home?

Yes I really am home....sorry for not posting for a couple of weeks.....a little strep, now some bronchitis..... yeesh....will I ever get better? Well I hope so, especially since I really need to get my giveaway in action and my swap goodies are all in the mail! I need to catch up on all the news, what has everyone been doing?
Although it has been a little tough there are some things that make a person feel these packages that came in the mail..... from Lori over a My Faerie Window.....a puff! Lori makes these amazing puffs and I have wanted one for so long....I am so happy to have one, the soft pink is perfect! Isn't it beautiful? It was wrapped so sweetly and look at the darling clothes pin wrapped in lace with an "M" on it......precious!!!

Some more of Michelle Palmer's beautiful art! When the giveaway is announced you may see this pop up again!!!! I love her work......if you haven't seen it you really need to check it out!
Her blog is called Petals and Palettes.
My gorgeous little ballerina doll from Shari at Plays with Paper.......I love her work!!!
I also won a giveaway from Debra at Common Ground!!!! Look at the wonderful way everything is packaged......the soap and the linen sachet smell like pure Heaven....thank you Debra!!! Debra is in the middle of transforming her dining room, anyone wanting to help her wash up china.......ha ha.....I actually love to do that! Sometimes I wish we were all closer, don't you? It's like we are the desperate housewives of Blogland!!!!

What a beautiful old key.........I love to collect them!So it's off to the craft room to wrap up my pin dolls for Cindy and the Mad Hatter for Sue....I can't wait for those girls to get them... I am very far behind and they have been graciously and very patient with me........and then when it is time for a tea break......I have a lot of catching up to do. What have you girls and guys been up too?

Hey Margaret, I think you are on to something here. Housewives of Blogland. Maybe we should all buy some property somewhere and build our own little community of bloggers.hehe. It would definitely be the most beautiful place on earth.
I love Lori's puffs. They are pure heaven. Oh you have gotten some treasures lately. Love them all. I can't wait to see what you are sending out as well.
I do hope that you get to feeling better very soon. It's not fair that you have been sick for so long!

Hi Margaret Sweetie...
I wanted to take a minute and drop you a line or two. I had to thank you for my beautiful gift of love that arrived for me in the mail. I loved the magazines, as I can sit in my chair and read and the bird pinkeep is just exquisite. I am thrilled over the top. It so made my day. I cannot begin to tell you the tears that fell, now they were tears of joy ofcourse, that someone would think of me. Thank you sweet friend, thank you. I have been reading through my magazines and will be trying a few stitchings for sure. I have everything that I would need right here at home and can sit in my chair and sew a little when I cannot sleep. Rest comes hard for me right now.

Your puff from Lorie is exquisite. I can see why you have been wanting one. I will go and check out her blog as well. Even the clothes pin is darling. Just darling. The ballerina doll is also just precious.

Yes we are the Desperate Housewives of Blogging. I love that thought.

Again thank you sweet friend. You so made my day. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Country hugs and so much love, Sherry

Charlene said...

Sweet girl I am soooooooooo sorry you have been under the weather. But, all those treasures should make you right as rain! LUCKY YOU! Oh how I love that little Charlotte. I just entered her 101 Give Away post in hopes of winning one. Hope I have your good luck!!!! But, you are so sweet you deserve all the goods. I bet one of those sweet GRANDS will think that pretty wand is a fairy wand. Get well soon. HUGS! CHarlene

Rebecca said...
