  1. Boy do I ever need to go grocery shopping. The cupboards are definitely bare at our house. Love your goodies from Carmen. Very thoughtful of her indeed.
    Your towels are wonderful. I know they will sell out in a flash. Thanks for Kims link. That furniture is to die for. I hear several pieces calling my name. Now if I would just stumble upon a lot of cash I would be able to answer that call.
    Enjoy your weekend Gina.

  2. Sounds like you have been very busy this week! I love the towels and hope to order some soon for my kitchen. The black ones are pretty, but the red ones match my decor....whatever that is! LOL!!!! We have been having cool mornings here and warm afternoons. We don't have to do yardwork anymore....the landlord just upped the rent and included yard work in the price. Rich was so he hates yardwork. I love the salt dough ice will look beautiful on your tree......maybe I will get out the ingredients and make some salt dough ornies soon!

  3. ARGH...Now HOW did that corn get out, I had it tied tight!!! Even wrote fragile on the box, my now I am wondering what the heck those boxes go through?!!!! Glad you like it and yes, I made the lemon pound cake candle (one of my favorite scents!!)

  4. I, too, have filled the pantry and freezer getting ready for winter. Be the ant and not the grasshopper.....
    Lucky you, being able to use those soaps. My skin just gives me fits if I use anything different. It would smell nice though and that goat is awesome. Got my chores done, too. Mike has decided to make chili for supper so I get out of cooking tonight. We are going to have our 6 year old granddaughter for the weekend. I'm ready but know full well that we'll be ready to take her to school Monday! lol

  6. Gina, Congrats on your wholesale order!!!

  7. Hi Gina~
    How wonderful to get a lovely package in the mail, filled with marvelous goodies!! Wish there was a "Smell" button on your blog!!
    Way to go on saving money too, so you can have money for those special extras for YOU!!

  8. Isn't it so much fun when packages come in the mail!! What wonderful goodies you got from the ice skating dough ornie!! Congrats on your wholesale the rooster towels!!
    Hope you have a great weekend. I'm crafting today and going to a show to walk around tomorrow. It's one that I did for years and decided not to go back to this year...will seem strange to be a customer instead of a vendor.

  9. Yes it is fun to get a package. Your goodies are great. Just the other day I got one filled with 60 tulip bulbs. They were replacement bulbs from a flower mail order Co. Last years bulbs did not come up. They replaced them. I need to get up & get them in the flower beds this week. You are always such a busy gal. So many fun & new things you do. Blessings!
