GiFts FroM A WonDerFuL FrieNd JuSt BeCauSe..

Good Morning my fellow Bloggers!! this face above describes the look on my face when a sweet package arrived yesterday from my good sweet blogging buddy Linda..ready story below.;)
it is a glorious day today!!! I tell you I love the sunshine after all these dreary days of April that we had..I do love dreary days too..cause then I know I can stay at home with a nice fire and craft to my hearts content...but a sunny day just begs to be outdoors enjoying the sun..We did get to go for our walk yesterday which was nice..and we beat the rain..I even worked in the neighbors yard a bit last 1-1/2 hours worth..but it looks so much better..but still needs a ton of work and such as the immature renters we had just couldn't seem to fit it to overwhelmed by it all..thats what happens when you only do yard say never..looks like we are getting another renter the end of the month..just hope she or he does their yard work..okay for the title of my entry..I received my package from a very dear blogging buddy..who sends the bestest stuff ever!!! and it was just because she knew I would love it..and love it I do!!! Linda of Parkers Paradise sent me the most wonderful goodies and I had a great time setting them out and decorating yesterday.;) she sent me this wonderful quilted kitty.. and this blue firkin..oh I am so in love with these firkins..I know they are not real ones..but I don't care..I love them and have 3 of them from Linda.;) I have a collection finally...:)
she sent me this wonderful army blanket....
so I can make more of these..(this is Linda's)
and more of these..This is Cindys..;)
she also sent some old sweaters..might have to try and see what I can come up with for old mittens..not sure..
and she sent this wonderful kitty crock said it had my name written all over it.;) It says: a home without a cat is just a true..
sorry for the blurry photo..a cute little candle even has a little piece of pie in i can burn it and it smells yummy..;)
oh I mentioned that I wanted some of these..and my wish was my command!!!I can't wait to show you what I did with these..
one went on the dining table with my little goodies in them along with the lantern.;)sweet and simple..:)
Kitty is being kept company along with another kitty I received ina swap..I love they go nicely with my punch needle rug that I won from Jenny..:)
Here is where I put my faux firkins...don't they look superb..oh I love the if I could just get some smaller ones to work my way up..;)
Here is where I put my kitty crock on top of my hutch with my other pottery..
I used my cheese box to put my spices in on the stove..they fit they were meant to go there..
and the 3rd one went on the kitchen counter for my olive oil bottle, salt and pepper..keeps it nice and tidy and again you would swear that box was meant for these items..I love this..
just another glimpse of my wonderful goodies..;)Thank you again Linda so much for making my day truly hit the mark with these items and I will think of you when I look at them..;)
I hope you all have a wonderful day..going to take Tucky for his walk today and then park it in my craft room..I am going through all my stuff that I don't want or will never use..have a huge stash going already..will be posting this on my selling blog or this one..will be doing this in the next couple of will surely keep me busy..but it is time..too much stuff...let someone else use it..time to declutter..Take care and thanks for always stopping by and making my day..:)

  8. Great goodies from Linda!! You know that I love those firkins...a girl can't have too many of them. All the Ohio gals are right...nothing but rain here! Wonder if we will ever get out in our yards.

  9. Wow! That was very sweet of Linda to do!I think she is that kind of lady!
    I would agree that no house is a home without a kitty!
    I can relate to you having to be inside. It has been cool here as well, although I was able to do some weeding and lay the Preen down in the veggie garden.
    It's going to rain the rest of the week! Pooh!
    Have a great rest of the day!
