Mary Jane at Blind Pig and the Acorn had a giveaway recently and I won! Look at this darling angel - she's sitting in my kitchen with my antique egg baskets guarding the eggs. Oops, the lemons. Those are lemons in the basket. Fake lemons because I don't have any fake eggs. That's beside the point - you gotta' love this angel. I've named her Abigail Angel and I love to see her there watching over my kitchen. Thank you so much Mary Jane - she is very special.
And Liz at Kentucky Bound sent me this Debbie Mumm book Country Settings. She wasn't using it and wanted it to have a good home. I wish I had her spirit of generosity! It has some great patterns in it but I especially like one that has barns on it and the one you can see on the cover that has tea cups on it. Those two have gone on my "I wanta' make this next" list which just seems to get longer with every book I see or blog I read.
To both of these ladies I say thank you - for the gifts and for the generosity and love you share with others. I hope that I can follow your example and be a friend to all those who drop in to visit my blog, and perhaps share a little laughter and a little wisdom and a little encouragement with each one. May God bless and keep you in His loving arms.
