Goodies in the Mail & Giveaway at Firecracker Kid Primitives

Happy Friday!!! Yippee!! The weekend is here & it's time to celebrate!! Well, not for me, I have to work tomorrow :(

On to better news. Have any of you not heard of The Firecracker Kid?? Carol's her name, & woodcrafts are her game (actually it's her & her hubby's business). She's having a surprise giveaway. Run (at least click as fast as you can) over & get yourself signed up http://firecrackerkid.blogspot.com/ . You'll find all the details on her blog. She sells her wonderful goodies on etsy. So while you're over signing up for a chance at something special, check out her etsy site. If you're like me, you'll want one of everything.




And speaking of goodies, I received some in the mail today. I took part in a Summertime Swap hosted by Misi of 1890 Gable House Musings. It was a secret swap with no partners. Misi emailed us our secret intended & Kat from http://primitiveechoes.blogspot.com/ got me. Look at all this colorful paper. Ohhh!!

She sent me this pinwheel that I promptly added to my porch flowers.




And look at the rest of my goodies. A birdhouse shelf, a nice big prim candle in a wonderfully prim bag, & a soldier's journal with love letter. They really look better in person. I had a really hard time getting a decent picture. Thank you Kat. I will enjoy my summertime swap goodies.



My swap intended was Amy at http://bumblebeelanecottage.blogspot.com/ . She has a wonderful blog & if you would like, you can check out what I sent her.


After work yesterday, I went to Madison with my mom to drop off some paperwork for their business. We stopped at our favorited quilt shop & checked out a new (to us) antique mall in Pardeeville. OMG!! I was in heaven for about 30 minutes. You see, we got there only 30 minutes before closing time, so we had to browse super fast. I WILL be going back. It was fabulous. I'll show you what I bought tomorrow.

I need to do some catching up on some blogs before bedtime (which will be real soon).


Enjoy your weekend!!

I am glad you liked it. I think everyone should have a pinwheel in their garden. I loved them when I was a kid :0)
