A Sweet Heart of a Week !

 This week has been such a good one for me. Like extra good.  I usually have good days, weeks etc. but sometimes feel a little tired by the end. Not this week ! 

First my doctor's appointment on Monday, I was dreading because I KNEW I had gained weight. Ate like a P I G  hog over the holidays and on my trips, sigh.  Big surprise I had actually LOST two pounds !
Ya'll just can't know how happy this made me : )

Then found all kinds of wonderful things while out and about.  The first is a very sweet music box.  Perfect condition ... .99 .  I know I know !  Ninety nine cents.
 Then these two tea cups in a box, brand spankin' new AND also an excellent price.

 A fabulous white and pink Easter bonnet ... I know some of the flowers look yellow but they aren't, it's just my  picture taking.   I just got home from my booth and was rushing to get these taken and up
This little pretty will be off to a sweet friend before Easter so I'm sharing it with you now.
AND can you believe forty doilies for $2.00 ????   I am sooo tickled to get these because I need to make more doily wreaths.

Then Valentine's Day, came downstairs and there on my chair a big heart shaped box full of chocolates and a few other surprises.

Was thinking that I wouldn't make much at my booth this month so was I ever surprised to find a nice fat check waiting for me and to find out that a number of items have sold already for next month.

Oh yes, it has been a very good week !   I really hope your week has been wonderful too.
 If you want to end your week on a sweet note, head on over to Pink Saturday at Beverly"s.   
Thank you so much for your comments. I always try to return them as well as any follows.  Please come back again and until then, ya'll beee sweet !
