I'm Tellin' I'm Tellin'.....

Oh my oh my in the midst of a busy busy schedule my SweetiePie and I took a long week end to travel to Pensacola, Florida. His cousin gave us a travel trailer and we went to pick it up and have a visit with cousin and his wife. My SweetiePie and his cousin served in the Navy together and have a very tight bond. Fortunately for me I love him and his sweet wife which is a VERY good thing. We had a good visit and the fellas did some reminiscing.

While there I managed to spend a few hours with a very special Southern belle...Ms. Inka of Inklings Designs . Check out her webshop she is having a SALE and her shop is almost as much fun as she is. If you need a shot of fun, enthusiasm and vitality just go visit Inka. She was so gracious (the sign of a true Southern belle) and took me to a few shops she had already spent hours in because I wanted to go. We had a delicious lunch and yakked almost non stop. I also got to see her creations which are fabulous and I can easily say pictures do not do them justice. Inka is like me in that we do a bit of everything...oh if you could see her mosaics !!! I just gotta say I LOVE me some Inka.

Okay now on to the number drawn by the fabulous Mrs. Glosser's Random Number Generator...Number SIX which belongs to the post by Gail of Gail Friends Designs ... I have some of her jewelry and I gotta say you won't be sorry if you shop at her boutique.

Thank you ALL for your sweet comments, I do appreciate each and every one.

Now dear ones I am off into a flurry of pickin' packin' and post officin' so until things simmer down my wish for ya'll : Sweet relatives, sweet friends and sweet hearts to spend time with. (())

I am so glad you had a great time visiting your DH cousin and his wife. The icing on the cake was getting to spend some time with Inka.
