Two Surprises, Link Party

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.

Take care!
