RAK and a Giveaway Win

I was gone all afternoon today getting groceries and running errands (in the rain I might add) and came home to find not one, but two packages waiting for me in the kitchen. The one I knew about, but the other was a total surprise from my good friend Sheila ~ Seasons of Thy Heart. She sent me a sweet RAK including all Valentine items! She knows how much I LOVE her 'canned' flower arrangements and this one is just too cute! Plus two different handmade hearts w/wire hangers, a handmade tag and the most yummy homemade candy! Oh my, it was very hard to stop at just one! LOL The flavor was out of this world!!

Oops, you know me by now, I always have at least one pic where I got too close, sorry! :))
Thanks again Sheila, how did you know I wanted to add a few more things to my Valentine display on the fireplace mantel?? I love everything you made me! So sweet and thoughtful of you!

About 3 wks. ago I won a giveaway over at Brenda's over at Pumpkin Patch Primitives, but she totally forgot to send it out, so I finally received it today! Here's the pile of scrumptious flannel ~ 22 pieces (9 X 11 in.) of ............
plaids..............snowmen and prints...........
snowflakes and polka dots............
OOOOOhhhhhhhhh, I can't wait to make something w/these babies~ lol. Thanks again Brenda! These are wonderful to the touch.

In keeping w/shorter posts this yr. so far................ here's your quote for today: "The courage to try different things is one part curiosity and two parts the inspiration of a friend."

Ok, next post I should have a few more Valentine's decor and stitchy things done to show you. See ya soon!
