Hectic Week-end and Lots of Goodies

Good Morning~
It's been one crazy week-end. So glad I finally have a day off (kind of). As promised, I finally am able to post the pictures of all my wonderful goodies from the generous artists over at http://oldfarmhousegathering.blogspot.com . I was the lucky winner of their fall giveaway. Yippee!! It was a crazy week-end at our house. I had to work all day on Friday, them came home long enough to make supper, then had to go to set up for a craft show on Saturday. Saturday was taken up with the show-had to go early to tweek my booth. The show ended at 4:30 and I was done packing up by 5:30. Got home just in time to take pics of my son & his girlfriend before they headed out for the homecoming dance. Glad I made it. They were so cute. Will post some pics of them tomorrow. Sunday was work all day. So, on to the day off. Need to make 3 batches of chocolate chip cookies, a strawberry cheesecake, cut up sausage for cheese trays, organize a photo album, and pick up plates, forks, cups, etc.. for my son's dedication ceremony that is tonight at 6:30. He has completed his Eagle Scout project and is having the dedication tonight. If I have time, I would like to try to inventory my remaining craft items so that I know what I need to work on for my next show. I don't know how those moms that work full time can do it all. I work part time and have a hard time keeping up (although I've had full time hours for the past month). Well, enough about all that-on the the goodies. I came home Thursday to find this on my porch.

My first thought was-Don't get so excited, Tim probably ordered something and it's his package. But I did a happy dance when I saw it was addressed to me. Good thing my neighbors weren't around. They probably would think I was nuts the way I was dancing around.
My goodies all wrapped up with a wonderful card addressed to me.

Congrats!!


I pulled out something heavy and under all the wrapping was this wonderful candle holder. I have looked at these for years and never bought one. Just LOVE it. Thank you Carol.



This is what the basket looked like when I took it out of the box. Had to control myself, so I wouldn't just rip off the packaging.


After the packaging came off. So pretty!!


First thing I took out was this wonderful painted witch and ghost mounted on a little grapevine wreath. This wonderful goodie came from Momma B's Front Porch.


Next out of the basket is this cute little Piggy oven mitt. It says Country Bakin. A big thank you to Judy for this cute little goodie. It will go in my kitchen if my mother in law doesn't snatch it on me. She's a "piggy" fanatic.


Next out of the basket was this wonderful little cat pillow/cupboard tuck. Picture is kind of blurry, but it's a nice prim little black kitty on an orange background. A big thank you goes to Teresa from Teresa's Primitive Treasures. Love it-Love it-Love it!!


These are from Andrea of Crow's Nest Primitive Shoppe. There is a four pack of Autumn Harvest melting tarts, a vanilla sweet annie tart, and a tube of Bee's wax lip balm. I've already used the lip balm and it's wonderful. Perfect for the upcoming dry winter season. The tarts are so pretty, that I probably won't use them. They will make a pretty display. Thank you Andrea!!




The candle is from Kimberly of Sugar Creek Hollow. A girl can never have too many candles. This is Pumpkin Crunch Cake scented and smells sooo good.
The Ghosts Gather Here sign is perfect!! I was looking for a sign to attach to my metal chicken feeder that I use for corn stalks on my back porch. Thanks to Kerri from Curvednoodles.


I love crows, so I would like to thank Doris for this wonderfully prim crow on a pumkin make-do. Don't you just love the crunched up sign. It says Primitive Blessings. I think I need a new camera. This picture is a little blurry too. Maybe it's just the camera woman lol.


This is the basket all my goodies came in. It's wonderful. I just love baskets of all kinds. I love antique ones, Longaberger ones, and of course baskets that come from the hands of wonderful artists. Thank you Rose of Baskets by Rose for this beautiful basket. It is perfect to store my ongoing punch needle projects.


This handmade tag is attached to my basket. It is adorable!! It comes from Kim of Valley Primitives. Love it on the basket, but it may find another home.



This is a pic of all my goodies after they came out of the basket. What a wonderful and generous group of girls!! I would like to thank them all again. They are all going to be great additions to my home. I will make sure to post pics of where these wonderful items found a place in my home soon.

Off to make some cookies and organize a photo album.
