~The Weekend and Friday~

Good morning...it's Monday already. Did your weekend fly by as quickly as mine? I guess when you are busy and having a good time...time does fly.

Saturday we went to a fun garage sale Mr. and Mrs. I'm A Little Teapot was having, and found some neat treasures. I found the cutest shelf for my kitchen and painted it yesterday along with another little kitchen shelf I already had...as soon as I get them up I'll show you. On Sunday we mainly just puttered, watched NASCAR, had a bar-b-que....plus I did do some stitching



Friday afternoon, Lisa and I went to lunch and did a little fun shopping. When I got home the mailman had delivered a package for me. I'd recently purchased a pretty hand mirror on Flea Market Friday from Michelle at Back Through Time and it was waiting for me when I got home. Let me show you........

I love it! I put it on a small dresser and it looks perfect . Michelle has a great blog, neat items for sale on FMF, plus wonderful creations in her Esty Shop. Besides this lovely mirror she surprised me with.........
Birthday presents. There were three packages wrapped in the sweetest tissue in this hot pink bag and the nicest card. One package had these three little birdies. They are little guys, hand painted with the prettiest colors....
I adore birds....these are so precious and have found a happy home in this little nest.
This darling needle cushion was in the second package. It is filled with Rosemary and sharpens your needle when you use the cushion. It has a nice light fragrance and isn't the button the cutest. It's going right in with my stitchie things. Next package was actually a small box with two treasures...............
that I adore. The queen charm is one Michelle made. Her sister is teaching her how to solder and make these pretties...it's gorgeous and I love it. I collect crowns, and love hearts and every once in awhile some one calls me "The Queen". I've always wanted a name pin and this is so cool....thank you so much I will enjoy these and always think of you. Oops, I almost forgot...she also gave the cutest notebook and pen, they are already in my purse. Thank you dear friend.

Well, the garden is calling me...I have weeding and trimming to do before the day turns too hot. "Toodleloo" and hugs, to all, Linda

Hi Linda and a belated Happy Birthday to you!! I love ALL your special gifts you showed us, especially the darling pendant with "queen" in it! (my brother often calls me the "princess")LOL Looks like you had a wonderful celebration and you DO NOT look like you're 65, I would have guessed 55 but not 65! You're lookin good girl!!

It is fun to get mail like that! What wonderful gifts. I never knew that rosemary sharpens needles (I thought you had to use sand for that). I bet it smells wonderful too. I love rosemary. Will you be sharing a photo of the shelf? :) Stop in at CelebrateTheSeasons for a small giveaway if you would like. I will be pulling a name by Friday.

Hugs ~
Heidi
