Good evening friends, gosh where has the time gone! Do you believe that in just a little over a month Halloween will be here already? Summer has seemed to just fly by within a blink of an eye. I hope everyone had a enjoyable summer and that you all got to do all the things on your wish list that you wanted to! Speaking of wishes, I had one of mine come true last week and thought I would share it with you. My dear sweet friend Carol from "Butter Milk Creek Farms" http://Buttermilkcreekfarm.blogspot.com and I have been chatting for almost two yrs. now and sending e-hugs back and forth with all of our letters over the years. Last week we finally had the chance to meet up face to face in Shipshewana Indiana and give each other the biggest, and best hugs in person! (Now how awesome is that?) Carol and her Husband and my fiance Mark and I got to spend two and 1/2 glorious days together, at a wonderful Bed &Breakfast called The McKenzie House just 10 min. away from Shipshewana Indiana in a small town called Middleberry. We shopped, ate, chatted up a storm, did more shopping and eating.....and chatted non-stop till we said good nite for the evening only to start all over the following day! hehe Carol is as sweet and caring in person as she has been in all of her writings and chats on the phone. Her and her hubby made us feel like we had known them for way longer than two years actually more like all of our lives.....and meeting and spending time together has been a thrill of a life time for me!
Me and My Sweet Friend Carol
Carol being the sweetie that she is and very thoughtful and generous friend, came bearing a wonderful box full of prim perfect goodies to spoil me rotten! Would you like to see all of what she brought me? I thought you might. hehe
First is one of her awesome Mouser's in a vintage Halloween sack.
Now knowing how much I love her mouser's Carol didn't stop there, she gifted me one of her primtastic wool pumpkin pin keeps with a tiny little mouser on top. Is this not the cutest thing?
There's still more friends, She also gave me this sweet little Halloween Ornie and wonderful Halloween bottle that can be hung from a shelf or hook.
And this is only the topping on the cake friend's there's still more! Do you believe it! Two awesome Christmas Ornie's that she made for me, a wonderful snowman and Santa!
Nope, not done yet. Carol thought of everything! I was looking a few weeks back for some rust colored hemp for one of my crafting projects and could not find any, anywhere here in NY. Yeap, you guessed it! Carol was able to track some down and so graciously included some in my box of goodies! Sweeeet!
And to surly spoil me rotten, Carol included two, not one but two wonderful bars of soap from one of our blogging friends Jody from "Sweet Bear Creek Whims" http://Sweetbearcreekwhims.blogspot.com I have never tried any of Jody's soap till now and gal's let me tell you.....It is SOoooooo"WONDERFUL"! The scents and smell are amazing and it lather's up so wonderful, not to mention that your skin is silky soft when you get done using it! If you have not had the chance like me to purchase some of Jody's soaps you are really, really missing out. Here's a little secret....I hear she has some that is curing now as I write this, which will be for sale sometime by the end of the month. If you maybe interested in purchasing some, I would not wait to check it out! And look how she packages every bar, as sweet as her soap itself!
Well gals, I am sure you will agree with me that Carol has a heart as big as her little ole' self! She surly has spoiled me rotten and I cannot begin to thank her enough, not only for all my goodies.....but for her and her husband making our trip such a super fantastic one and for all the wonderful memories that I will cherish!! I do have ton's of pictures to share, some of where we stayed and some of the Amish that I am so passionate about. Seeing this post is long, I am going to close for this evening. I will be back tomorrow and I will be posting more pictures. So stay tuned, the McKenzie House is awesome!
Until Next time friends,
