Some Wonderful Goodies From Dear Friends And Long Over Due Thank You's...

Good Morning friends, Today I would like to share with you, some wonderful goodies that I have been blessed with over the last couple weeks from some very dear, sweet and generous friends
My first gift is from a very talented blogger and friend Traci from "York Mountain Primitives".

Hmmmm A Zhu Zhu Pet???......Nope, just Traci being a Hoot and adding some extra smiles with
my awesome goodie! I have to tell you though, It sure raised some questions around the ole' homestead here. LOL Everyone wanted to know, why I was ordering Zhu Zhu pets!

This primtastic bunny is what was tucked inside that funny ole' box. Isn't he awesome! Traci was hosting a Spring Giveaway on here blog and a fun Egg Hunt for extra prizes a few weeks back, which I took part in. She gave away a awesome Bunny as the Grand Prize and so very generously made another Bunny to giveaway to the first person who commented on her blog after the giveaway. I was lucky enough to be that first person! WoooHooo!
I have him displayed on my end table in my living room, right next to a basket of wonderful prim eggs, that were a gift from another wonderful friend Carol of "Butter Milk Creek Farms". I think they look so prim perfect together! Don't' you agree?
Gosh, I just love this lil' guy and these wonderful prim eggs togther! If you have not had the pleasure of visiting Traci's blog, you are really missing out. She is one of the sweetest gals you ever wanted to meet and her blog is very up lifting and inspiring as well! She also has a selling blog "York Mountain Mercantile" where she sells all her wonderful creations, which is stocked full of prim goodness!! This bunny and the bunny wall hanger(in next pic) is just a very small sampler of all the wonderful prim's that she creates and sells!
This prim guy is another wonderful creation of Traci's. I won him in the "Egg Hunt" she was hosting in her Spring giveaway. The picture really does not due him Justis! For some reason...I just couldn't get a good picture of him. I am so sorry, as he is primed to perfection!! The pipe berries and eggs in his pocket goes so well with his awesome quilt pocket and not to mention he smells so yummy and grudged to perfection! I have him hanging in my kitchen off of my hutch, but had to put hang him on my wall to get a better picture of him. I want to Thank you again Traci for sharing a little bit of yourself with us all through your kind generosity and your wonderful creations!
My next wonderful goodie is this awesome, awesome paint sprayer from Carol from "The Polka Dot Closet". Carol and Command Max teamed up together and so generously gave away to one lucky winner this fabulous paint sprayer! ...Yeap you guessed it, I was the Lucky winner!!!Oh my gosh....I could not believe it when I read my name on her blog. I was not only doing the Happy Dance....but dang near peed my pants!...LOL I am so looking forward to using the sprayer, with being disabled it is going to make my makeovers so, so much easier! I promise to keep you all informed and updated as I complete them!
Carol is also another very sweet gal, who's heart is as big as she is...for those of you who haven't had the pleasure of visiting her blog "The Polka Dot Closet" again, you really need too!!! Her blog is chocked full with plenty of eye candy and awesome make overs, that she so generously shares with all. Not to mention all the wonderful tutorials and tips that she gives for all her wonderful creations. I love visiting with her and know you will too! Thank you Command Max for so generously donating one of your sprayers and a special thank you goes to Carol, for giving me the opportunity of owning this wonderful tool by hosting such an awesome giveaway!
Next is a long over due and "SPECIAL Thank You" to Shelia from"Seasons Of Thy Heart" Blog and her selling blog is "Country Impressions". Shelia was cleaning out some of her things and decided instead of donating three wonderful Gooseberry Patch books that she had, and no longer had use for.... she would so generously offer them to the first three followers who left a comment on her blog. Talk about friends who are thoughtful! Shelia is not only thoughtful and very generous, but a very talented artist and designer who creates wonderful creations with flowers and such. She makes OOAK Floral Designs and will also do custom made's to fit all your needs. If you are not familiar with Shelia's work, you must stop by and check out all her wonderful creations, you won't be sorry!!
If you are not familiar with Gooseberry Patch Books, they are just the greatest! They have everything in them from crafts to awesome recipes. Here a few pictures showing how great they are! I can't wait to try these babies out! yummy looking!

Awesome table center piece using candles and fruit.
I also want to try making these for the Holidays this yr. They are small candle jars(Using baby food jars) to hang on your tree, decorated and filled with Rose hips and a battery candle. So, so cute!
And these awesome cuties......made from fabric and old pictures, add a small saying and you have the cutest ornament to hang on your tree or give as a gift. The possibilities are endless!
Thank you so much Shelia for be so thoughtful and sharing, and for giving me the opportunity of owning this gorgeous book!

Well friends, as you can see I have been truly blessed once again! Not only with all these wonderful goodies, but with the opportunity in making and having such special and very generous friends in my life and for that I am very GRATEFUL!!
Until next time friends,
Big Hugs,

Wow!! What wonderful, wonderful, goodies you've won! You know I'm a huge Traci and Miss Mousemaker fan - owning some of their hand-dids is just the cat's pajamas. And that sprayer - woo hoo! Talk about a score!! Hope you enjoy the Gooseberry Patch book - I've never seen one, but have heard they are pretty amazing..... Wishing you a blessed and joyous Easter my friend....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
