More ornie swap goodies

Good Morning All!!

It seems that I am always playing catch up here in blog land. I am days behind again in reading what you all have been up to. I am also super far behind in posting. So sorry~but better late than never I say.

Quite a few weeks ago, I participated in an ornie swap hosted by Marie aka Olde Lady Morgan. I went for the maximum allowed ornies with 6. I posted 2 of them awhile back & am back to post another. I figure if I do 1 a day, I may get them all done before Christmas (at the rate I'm going). So today's ornie is from Karen at

This wonderful tag came tied to my package. It has all her info on it, so I knew who the fabulous goodie inside came from.

And this what was tucked inside the package. A beautiful mitten with a hand stitched feather tree on it. It will make a lovely addition to my tree this year. Thank you Karen~I love it!!

That's it for me today!! I'm going to try to read a few more blogs before I have to go to work this afternoon.

Have a wonderful day~Becky

Ornie Swap Goodies

Remember this box from yesterday's post??? My box from OLM....

Well here are a couple of the goodies that were inside. I don't have time to post them all today, but I'll give you a peek at 2 that were in my box.

First up is this little sock ornie. Precious isn't it?? I think so. It came from Tammy at Tammy's blog is a favorite of mine, so I was tickled to receive an ornie from her. Thank you so much Tammy! I love it!!

This next little goodie comes from Melissa at She made this Joy Christmas star. If you aren't familiar with Melissa's blog , stop over & say Hi. You'll be glad you did. I big thanks to Melissa for a perfectly prim addition to my tree this year.

That's it for today. I will share my other ornies in another post. I'm off to pick up my leftover goods from the craft show & then on to work until 1 a.m.

Have a fabulous Saturday~Becky

Happy Veterans Day, Snow, Projects, & a Tease

Happy Veteran's Day!!

Please take a few minutes from your busy day today to think of the men & women who sacrificed for our Freedom. We are having a discount day today former & active military men & women so I will get the chance to personally thank some of our veterans. I know the small gesture means a lot~I have had many tell me so in the past.

The last few days, we've gotten some snow. Now we didn't get alot of snow, but it was enough to cause a terrible accident that closed a major highway for hours. One person lost his life & 6 others were sent to the hospital. I was so thankful that I didn't have to work that day. This is the view out my window.

Here are a couple of my newest creations this year. A snowman pocket.

And for you Santa lovers out there, this Santa pocket. I love how they turned out. I have sent them to the craft show that I am in the weekend & will see if any come home. I'm hoping they all sell & I have to make more for next weekend's show. I can't wait for next weekend to be over~that is my last show for the year. I really want to start on some "me" projects.

And here is the package from OLM's ornie swap showed up last night. I was almost too tired from working all day to tear into it, but it got the better of me. I had to see what was inside. Would you like to see what I got????

I bet you would, but here is where the teasing part comes'll have to wait till tomorrow to see. Hehe!! I can be a little evil too.

Come visit tomorrow~I promise to show you then. Maybe by then , some of you will have gotten your goodies. I love all of mine!!

Have a wonderful day all. I'm working VIP night tonight & have to work all weekend from 5p.m. to 1a.m. I think that's going to be a little past my bedtime.

Enjoy your weekend~Becky
