I have received some goodies in the mail lately and I wanted to acknowledge them. The other day I came home and there was a huge package waiting for me from Australia. Coll from Coll's Garden had sent me a package from the Parasol and Paper Swap that her daughter Shannon had put together. Anyway I was thrilled with everything inside. The parasol is gorgeous(and so were all the other goodies) and it promptly went into my china cabinet because a little granddaughter named Maddie was very interested in it. LOL Thanks Coll, I love all of my goodies and the little Koala chocolates were so yummy. I was good, I only had one over the weekend. :-)
Okay, I am slapping myself on the hand and saying I'm a bad blogging friend because Kari sent me this pretty pink candy dish awhile back and I didn't acknowledge it on my blog right away. Well, I knew she was going on vacation and I thought I would wait till she got back and then of course I just didn't get around to it. So Kari I'm sorry, you know I love it. It sits behind Maddie's photo, next to my giant pink diamond(hey, you don't think that's real?). I tried to keep it filled with Weight Watchers candy but my girls keep eating it all so I have hid all of my Weight Watcher treats from them but I know they are hunting all over the house for it. Thanks Kari, I love it.
And Rue from Rues Peanut Butter and Jelly Life has made this beautiful award for her bloggy friends. Do yourself a favor and hop on over to visit her, you will go back again and again. Thanks Rue I will put this on my sidebar. And then I received this great award from Celeste at La Rea Rose and from Donna at Made in Heaven . Thank you girls so much. I am always excited to get any award. All of my bloggy friends mean so much to me and you all have been so kind and encouraging. So I'm not sure of the rules and I can never just pick a few, so if you are on my sidebar please accept this award from me because you all are brillante.
Okay one more thing before I go get the gray out of my hair today. LOL The next Brenda's Photo Challenge has been picked and Karen from Loved and Engraved has picked a new theme and date. The theme is NUMBERS and the date is Saturday, July 26th. Here's what she says on her blog ----If you want to participate, please leave her a comment and she will post a link to your blog in her sidebar. So... please post 2-3 photos depicting your interpretation of NUMBERS! on your blog by Saturday, July 26th and above all, HAVE FUN. Thanks Karen for being the hostess, go over to her site and play along. It's fun and I'm already trying to think of ideas for this one.
One more last thing, LOL I've been trying to get back to a Travel Tuesday post once a month but things have been getting in my way. You know life, work etc.....but I'll try to post one this week or next. Today is going to busy so I'm not sure if I'll get to it for this Tuesday, but I miss going places and it's fun just writing about new and exciting places to go even if you are just sitting in your kitchen so I will try to do one soon. Happy Monday!!
