What a nice Monday I've had. I didn't have Kailee today, day off. That was nice. So, I vacuumed the house and then thought I should have lunch at my favorite Chick place..but, wait, ...the mailman was very early and look...4 PACKAGES. I had ordered from 3 of you gals and there are 4 packages. :) Happy Dance.

This cute little vase I bought from Emily at Victorian Petals. She Added, the recipe cards and my initial "D", plus a little written Thank you. Well, THANK YOU EMILY!!

Package number 2. This very sweet and cute Posie Pocket I bought from Diane at Saturday Finds. Thank you, Diane. It's just darling :)Package #3. Wasn't expecting this sweet gift from Lorena at Rose Chick Friends. It's a darling sachet with a pin on it and a little notepad. Well, dear one, Bless Your Little Heart! That was so nice and my Blessing for today. Hugs :)
Now, this darling Scottties Dog is a gift for a friend and I hope she doesn't see it! I saw this on Jans at Feather Your Nest Antiques blog. She sell them at her antique store and was kind enough to let me buy one by mail. Thank you Jan .

Another, sweet, young gal I want to Thank, is Lindsey at Two Crazy Crafters. I noticed her new banner and asked about it. She MADE it on her OWN. So, my little brain told me that I could do that too. So I asked Lindsey and she told me how. The husband helped, just a little, and now I have a NEW BANNER, that I MADE. I think I'm going to tweak it. How knew!!??

Back to Deb's Day. I went to my favorite Chick store and had myself a great lunch. It's all homemade..Yummy. I had their 3 salad sampler with a huge POPOVER with honey butter on it. I really wanted dessert, a Special K bar and those are huge too. But, I was Stuffed. So I did a little window shopping, hoping they would have the store decorated for FALL, but No. So..that means I'll have to go back. Darn :) I also stopped at the Home Goods store and found some pretty hand towels with matching guest towels. I Love Towels. Came home and Blogged, stained the trim for the kitchen window and got 1 coat of varnish on it. Needs 3 to last a long time and resist water. Husband is showing a house tonight, so I can blog some more. I'm also working on some cards. What a great day. I hope you all had a Mighty Nice Monday too.

Warmly, Deb
