Well, made it back home from visiting my DD and DGS. It was SOOOOO fun to spend time with them both. Man oh man......I'd forgotten how ACTIVE a two-year-old can be. It's good to be back....but it was so hard to leave.
Look what was waiting for me when I walked in the door:
Minestrone soup was in the crock pot.....and DH handed me a glass of wine. Perfect.
Going through the mail upon my return, I found two surprises - here are birthday gifts from sweet Lilllie of Little Needlecrafter:
A gorgeous scarf I can use as a scarf or wrap and a lovely stitched piece, "Belle", in my favorite color! THANK YOU, LILLIE!
And my dear friend, Renee of Living My Dream sent me two hand stitched gifts....but I can only share one right now, as another will be featured on a magazine early next year, so I"m sworn to secrecy....
This little zippered bag matches a coin purse Renee sent me a year ago or so. I LOVE the material - and the inside has cat eyes that glow - AWESOME! Thank you so much, Renee.
Today is the big reveal day for Stephanie's Teacup Exchange. I've employed DH to take some pictures for me (it's a bit overcast here, so I can't get good pictures). I'll share my delightful gifts and link up with Stephanie and all later today.
