These thank-you's are several days late, and I apologize to the givers of these wonderful gifts....but the silence was only in my typing fingers....not in my heart.....
On Friday of Memorial Day weekend, Barb from Barb's Heartstrokes did a post and gave an "appreciation gift" for the first person to comment. I don't think I was the first, but Barb sent me a gift anyway (such a sweetie she is!!)....
And such a sweet gift it is!!
Perfect for the upcoming holidays and summer season!!
Barb does some amazing paintings on screens....(the photo doesn't show it well, but that is actually painted on screen....) They are so cool! (Like I could even paint on wood, not!) If you aren't familiar with Barb's work, check out her blog by clicking on the link above (she has a great Etsy and ArtFire shop too). She's having another wonderful giveaway to celebrate some things in her life....including a "large-numbered" birthday!! ;o) Happiest of birthdays early Barb!!! And thank you so much for my wonderful gift!!! 100x better than a worm!!
A few short days later, I learned I won a giveaway from Sue at Oodlekadoodle Primitives! Sue sent me this little bowl with these awesome prim homespun-wrapped clothespins:
And the bestest-smelling dried raisin garland:
(Took me all of 2 seconds to find homes for these goodies!!)
Sue has a sweet blog with incredible recipes (WARNING!! Do not visit on an empty stomach!) and always has interesting tidbits to share or thought-provoking questions to ask...She, too, has a great Etsy shop with wonderful drieds and patterns. Sue also does a giveaway every month....(Wow!) So, if you don't know Sue, you will want to!! She's a sweetie!! Thank you so very much Sue for my wonderful gifts!!
Ahhh....my mailbox is a happy place now....
