My SwaP GoOdiEs FroM SheiLa.;)

Good morning everyone!!! How is your Wednesday going so far..can't believe its already wednesday and its the first of February.;) last tuesday when I was sitting on the couch withering in pain..a package came for me..and it just made my day and as you can see you didn't see any of the goodies wrapped up..but I am showing you the cute paper Sheila used to wrap all of my goodies up in..I swear it was the never ending box of wonderful stuff..definitely felt like christmas..only better.;)
I got 2 of Sheila's signature cans that she makes..and I LOVE them.;)
I got a wonderful prim calendar that hangs in my craft room right above my computer so I can look at it all day everyday:)
oh and I must say when I opened up this little just made me smile from ear to ear..(I think its my most favorite item)..cause you all know how I feel about them kittehs.;)
some winter mittens, some grubby candles..
and this wonderful heart pillow..I love how she colored it in..I love all the wonderful detail that went into this wonderful piece too;)
a valentine banner...
some yummy!!! smelling tarts, a wonderful card and a fridge magnet and this wonderful scrapbook that sheila says was her first attempt at outdid yourself on is wonderful.;)

don't you just love all the yummy details in this?..
and now for where I put everything..I did some tweaking of the old hutch..I just love to tweak..the pillow is up on the hutch..but I have since moved it down on a chair so I and others can view it little sunflowers in the center there..

I moved the cart on an angle and it gave it "more presence"..I just love angles..I also centered the box on top this time..
my grubby candles..
hanging in the dining room window...
my garland hanging in the dining room entry as you come in the front door..
Pody Lynn on the left and Stewie on the right...and in the center you can see my rose can..;)
see the little yellow stool on the left..that is where my pillow is now.;)
look where I put my kitteh..she is with another kitteh I got from another fellow cats love sleeping on this little stool so I thought she would look great there..
she reminds me of my Sunny Bunny.;) and the littlest ones have already hauled this yarn ball off and unraveled it..only once so far..little stinkers..nothing is sacred here..and I mean nothing..
I put my little scrapbook on my side of the bed with my other valentine/romantic goodies..and it looks right at home wouldn't you say..Sheila you outdid yourself on all of these goodies..I love everything you made for truly was from the heart..and I love it all..I have one thing left to make for you today and hoping to get your wonderful goodies in the mail tomorrow..I just hope you like your goodies as much as I love mine.)
update on my pain..I went in last thursday for a CT scan of my kidneys and gallbladder and everything looked the doctor is thinking I burst one of my cysts on my kidneys and I have to "ride it out"..on thursday the pain was just about gone..I have been out walking ever since..and I feel like me again..He said its not uncommon to burst a cyst..(I didn't know this) largest stone is that is nice to know..and they are still up high, another good thing..our weather this past week is wonderful...getting some sun breaks..and that always makes me happy..I love the sun.;) so taking Tucker for a walk again today..I have been watching my netflix movies..and I am currently watching: "Larkrise to Candleford"..if anyone loves period type shows..and these have that "prim" feeling to will absolutely love this series..I can't put it is a must see..and I am down anther pound..only 6 more to go..
Yesterday I got another surprise in the mail from a fellow blogger..a just because..oh did it make my day..will share that one hopefully on friday..I just love my blogging have decorated my home so beautifully with the treasures I have received from have made my home what it is today..warm and inviting..I thank you all for being my friends..and this month is my anniversary month of when I started blogging..and can you believe it..4 years ago..where does the time go.;) I wish you all a wonderful day today..tomorrow is my monthly doctors appt..and to get more pills for the study..then I am off to go shopping..groceries mostly for the superbowl..but I am stopping at Joanns..gotta do my bills first and that will determine if I go or not.;) (its what I call my one stop shopping day)..we live out in the boonies and its over 30 minutes to get to these stores and I try and plan accordingly.;) okay I have rambled on long enough..have a great day everyone.;)
