Visit to ME postponed :( Giveaway WIN :)

Had my "duty day" today at Auntie M's and during the day found this darling Doll Scale. I just had to buy it! It's so small and sweet. A silly purchase! I'm thinking it will be cute in my craft room!


Kim, from Bargain Hunting Treasure Seeker had a giveaway and I WON!! The package arrived today and these 3 photos are all the treasures that she sent! WOW!!! It was like Christmas!


Hankies, doilies, tablecloth that has my Favorite colors, sweet aqua dish, clothes pins, old feed sack, vintage greeting card box...




vintage glass birds, Christmas sequins and trim...Loads of Treasures! THANK YOU VERY MUCH, KIM!

It was perfect timing as my visit to MaryElla is postponed as her Son and his family are there. She is seeing her Grands!! She doesn't see them as much as she would like to as they live a few states away! So, maybe next week or the week after I'll have my time with her. I was a little sad for myself, however Very Happy for MaryElla. Her blood count wasn't where is should be, so no chemo this week, but then she won't be sick from the chemo, so the visit with her son and grands will be a good one!

The Fall Banner Swap is closed and I'll get the partner's names out this weekend! I also changed the mailing date to Sept 11th...

I just can't say THANK YOU, enough, for all your prayers for MaryElla and her family. Time is short! It means the World to me!!! Consider yourselves HUGGED !!!!

Warmly,

deb

That is great news regarding the blood count and I hope you get to visit with her soon. Love all of your vintage goodies and maybe next time I'll join your swap. I'm already participating in one and didn't want to get strecthed to thin but I'm a collector of a few vintage goodies so a future swap sounds fun!

I love your "silly" purchase and think we are all entitled from time to time. It's super cute! Boy you were lucky...what a great giveaway you won. I am glad you get to visit ME next week! I hope it's special time.

Debby said...

I would love to find a scale like that. I think of the one I was given in a baby shower and so wish I still had it. The big ones take up alot of space....the one you have is perfect.
So sorry you had to post pone your visit. Glad she is seeing her son and her grands.
I hope you have a wonderful visit when you see her.
I will keep both of you in my prayers.

Sandy said...

Deb,
This post brought about such mixed feelings.....I was where you are a year ago with my dearest friend Scott.....I don't envy the journey you are on my friend, but just love her as much as you can! And if there is anything you need to tell her,please don't hesitate....as long as I live I will never forget the day Scott took my hand in his , looked in my eyes and said " I love you Sandy McClay" ...this from a man of very few words....His death and loss from my life has changed who I am forever.... I want to give you a big hug Deb, can you feel it????? Sandy

NanaDiana said...

Deb- What a happy/sad post. I am so sorry for your friend, and for you, too...as I know the sense of helplessness you must be feeling. Chemo is one of those darned if you do/darned if you don't things....

I love that little doll scale and your other finds. xo Diana

I love garage sales too! And I recognized that Mary Engelbreit Autumn pic you had in the blogpost below as I have one just like it! I love Mary's stuff and hit the thrift stores looking for her goodies. To date: I have 19 of her coffee mugs, 6 teacup sets and 3 tins, and lots of her books. Cute scale! :)

HOw wonderful that you won Kim's giveaway! It had so many wonderful little goodies in it. Glad to hear that your friend is spending time with her grandchildren this week. It's so important that she has family time. Hope her blood count settles down soon, so she can continue her treatment. This disease is the most awful thing. We really must find a cure.

Joy said...

You are are a lucky gal! I love that little scale and all the other goodies. Have a great weekend!

Lynn Stevens said...
