UNEXPECTED GIVEAWAY & Finds

Fun wicker form! Love the Jack Russell print, sweet bookends, sweet little red chair and bluebird napkins. I LOVE baskets and blue ones are extra nice finds! Blue tin is a keeper too. I AM A HOARDER! Do I hear an "amen"!!!

These are last weeks finds at the PACKED home! It was PACKED and there was so much stuff that I didn't know where to look first! That is frustrating! LOL!

As a "special", unexpected giveaway, Thank you, I had hubby pick numbers from the comments some of you "Special" gals left on MaryElla's blog. She loved hearing them when I read them to her. She loves Tea Parties so, "KIM K" and "BLESSED SERENDIPITY" need to email with their address as you each are getting a Tea Cup. It's my gift as KIND words do COUNT and mean more than you know!

Update on MaryElla: The hospice nurse said, "it won't be long now". Her body is shutting down. Every time my phone rings, I think it's "That phone call"...At least she will go peacefully in her sleep and that is a blessing.

Have a nice weekend. It's totally feeling like FALL today! That is my very Favorite Season!

Warmly,

deb

Dear Deb,
I began reading this post and was green with envy over all your beautiful finds, but now I am thinking differently.
I know I don't need to tell you this, but remember that while you will mourn your sweet friend, it has been a blessing to have her in your life.
Congrats to Kim and Danielle for being the winners in your thoughtful give-back.
hugs and JOY,
Kimberly

Hi Deb, I'm so sorry about ME. I have watched it happen and there are no words that can soothe what is happening. I really feel for you...and her.

On a lighter side...you found some really good 'loot'! Love the wicker dress form!

Congrats to the winners. I am so sorry that you are waiting for THAT phone call...the one you don't want to come but also the one you know will signal the end of her pain and suffering here on this Earth. God bless you- I can't imagine what you are going through and hope I go before my best friend does. xo Diana

Angie said...

I am very sad to hear about ME. Remember that she will be in such a beautiful place soon where there will be no more pain for her. Praying for a peaceful journey for her and her family.

I lost my Gram last year and it was so very hard to watch her slip away...but, what memories I have and her legacy lives forever in myself and those her knew her. Sending you a hug!

p.s. the first step in hoarding is admitting you have a problem...hehe...just teasing you!

Im in love with that little red chair...so cute. Isn't it overwhelming to have so much you worry if you missed something at a sale? Sorry to hear ME is suffering. I continue to think of her and send her encouragement. Smiles...Renee

What great finds! I can't decide which item is cuter, but the lil red chair and the Jack Russel pups print are so adorable and anything with bluebirds, if I was you, I'd be keeping it all, too. Thanks for showing your finds to us.

Deb,
I adore the napkins and that sweet little red chair, it would be really cute with a plant on it on the porch!
Those dread words" it won't be long now"....they have such a mixed message, you want her out of her pain and suffering but you don't want her to leave you......God Bless you both....Hugs, Sandy

Pendleton Primitives said...

Amen! The wicker form would be great black for Halloween with a witches hat on top. And, it saddens me to know your dear friend is not going to be with you much longer in physical body but you do know, she will always be with you. Our loved ones never really leave us. Stay strong for you both and continue to cherish the remaining time you have.

Hi Deb,
I am so happy that you could spend time with your friend. I am also so blessed to be a part of her happiness from the letters. It was so kind of you to add this special kindness to her last days. I know this is a very difficult time for you. So know that my prayers go out to you and all that were touched by Mary Ella. I pray for her comfort as she passes as well. God bless you, Deb!
