Bitta this, bitta that.....

First off--check out this beautiful assortment of goodies!! All mine. Yup. I was the lucky winner of the 200th blogpost drawing from Becky at Hospitality Lane. I couldn't believe it when I got the package in the mail the very next day! Just an absolutely beautiful bunch of prizes and so generous, wow! That beautiful teacup and saucer in the front is filled with the most heavenly smelling candle that looks just like a nice cup of tea! Becky actually sells those, so if you really want to treat yourself or send a nice gift to someone--that's a great idea for ya! Thank you so much Becky--I am stunned and delighted!
Check this out! Is it crazy to have a pink potbellied ketchup pot?? I found this cute little set of vintage potbellied ketchup and mustard pots while out on my last treasure hunt. They even still have the little plastic spoons with them! They were painted tomato red and mustard yellow, of course, and were pretty grubby and when I tried scrubbing them up, the paint was getting scrubbed off! So I scrubbed them really good and decided to give them a little paint job! I finished them off with a few clear coats of poly so you can wipe them clean. It's listed in my Etsy shop (if you would like the mustard pot too, just let me know and I'll give you a shipping deal!)
AND some good news about a dear friend--Miss Bufforfington finally updated her blog!! Yeah. I wrote her a silly comment about getting her rear in gear--and she did! LOL Please stop by and say HI to her, and let's see if we can encourage her to come back to us more often! (just joking around Dinah--I'm just excited to see you back!)


Well, I should go get some work done--then I have to shower up and get ready for my Mammy-smashing this afternoon! Fun! Remember gals-- it's not a very pleasant thing, but it's important to get those mammograms on a regular basis--keep "the girls" healthy!

CUTE stuff!! That candle is amazing, my mom would really like that.

You know, if you keep blogging all the time, I'm going to come to expect it then be really sad when you don't. I can only fuss so much since I'm a blog slacker!! I've got some changes coming though, and that takes time.

SO, SO, SO glad to see you happy, healthy and crafting your little heart away! HUGS and LOVE!!

That candle/tea cup is so pretty...it's as if I can already smell it. Great surprises there.

And thanks for the mention, stinker. And the encouragement. You're a good friend.

What great gifts! It's ever so fun to receive packages like that and discover such treasures within.

Mammograms are very important. I get mine every April and they do indeed do a bit of mashing (and I always complain).

Congratulations! It's so wonderful when good things happen to good people. Enjoy all the treats!

Love the finds. Some people just have "the radar." Not to compare you to a pig unkindly, but it's like our friends who find the truffles. I am not so talented in this regard, but appreciate it well in others. :)

Have a wonderful weekend!
