And that's obviously not what I did! I followed life right down the road and enjoyed the journey!
I won't go into all the details, but we here in Georgia have had some freaky weather this winter, and for the last winter blast, I found that, much as I wanted to do other things, all I could do was cook, eat, and sit at my kitchen table and watch the birds at the feeders on my back deck. Seriously ... I didn't have it in me to do anything else!
Then last week, I had to take Mama to a meeting on Tuesday, went to Ellijay, Georgia to 'meet' face to face a long time blog and Facebook friend, Val. We have known each other around 7 years. We have become such good friends, and have never been able to work it out to meet for real. Until this time. And I carried my friend Mary Ann, she brought her mother, granddaughter and best friend, and we had a BLAST! We shopped, had lunch, shopped some more, then went thrifting, then went to an apple house. Amazing day!
Thursday was my regular day at Altered Angel, and we had so much fun!
Saturday we (hubby, the dogs and I) drove up into Tennessee and Kentucky and spent the night in Lebanon, TN before heading home on Sunday morning. It was a wonderful weekend getaway!
So, that brings me to now, the present, and a post about a gift I received yesterday. Once again, I participated in the March swap over at A Swap For All Seasons. Our 'assignment' this time was a handmade card, a handmade tag, and some yellow goodies from your stash. My partner who was sending to me, was Debbie, and she has an amazing shop on Etsy full of beautiful things. Here are the goodies she sent to me ...
|All of the goodies ... so pretty!|
|Look at this sweet little card ... and the note inside was just as sweet!|
|Squares of pretty, heavy cotton fabric ... reminds me of chicken feed sacks!|
|The little card is so sweet, but that tag ... just beautiful and screams "SPRING".|
|Look at these scrumptious hand died ribbons and tags! The ribbons are just amazing, and you can find some of your own in her Etsy shop!|
|A pretty hand made envelope filled with vintage images and some sweet little gold foil rabbits!|
|And I know this one is blurry, but look at that sweet butterfly trim and yellow marker! And in the bottom right hand corner, there are some yellow clear plastic discs that I am thinking are tiddly winks or maybe bingo pieces.|
Debbie had everything packed up so sweetly in glassine bags, with washi tapes and ribbons. I love every single thing, and Debbie, I would be your swap partner any time! Thank you so much for all the thought and time you put into putting together my package!
Okay, I promise I will be back again soon ... blessings,
