Alll in all it's a wonderful life !

                                                              The occasional glitches that come along help me appreciate how generally great life is.   Been a lot going on, inside the cottage and out.  Managed to get a few things done and in the process sprained my hand.   Honestly. So that meant a halt to most projects but it gave me time to plan a few things.
 And, AND didn't I just get a couple of really wonderful packages, which btw I had NO problem using my hand to rip open : )   and lookee lookee....from the so talented and sweet Tabitha of Creative Wings   a Spring Swap.   I love swapping with Tabitha, look at all the goodies ! Love it all but the cufflink with my initial is so special.  Thank you Tabitha.
           












                                          Then, all the way from England, Marilyn Guernsey Girlie  sent me a box of Rington's Tea and several post cards.  The tea is delicious and to see where she lives, oh my, so beautiful.  Makes me want to pack up and go, sigh.  Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness Marilyn.

The last photo I took from my truck on the way to my booth.  One of my favorite things about spring is the Wisteria.  I love how it looks against this old weathered homestead.
  Now I truly hope you haven't been experiencing any glitches and that you are enjoying a sweet spring.     Thank you for your visit and your sweet comments. Will be linking  with Beverly's Pink Saturday come visit there to see lots of pretty.
I'm off to visit you, missed you I have.   Until next time, ya'll bee sweet and come back soon.

Isn't getting packages in the mail so much fun Francie? It's going to be another cold and snowy weekend here. I don't think it's ever been this late when none of my fruit trees or flowering ornamentals haven't starting blooming yet. Weird! Happy Pink Saturday. :)

Hi France,
Sorry you hurt your hand! Get well soon.
You did get a lot of goodies, and yes I love wysteria, too. The fragrance is beautiful!

Hello Francie!

Looks like you've got some great swap partners! I'm about ready to send off an Easter swap to a friend. I'd love to participate in more good quality swaps so I'll have to keep my eyes open for them.

I'd love for you to come join my Homemaking Linkup party.
HaPpY pInK sAtUrDaY!

We seem to be a ways from some lovely spring weather. It is cold and freezing here Francie. Soon I hope.

I am sorry about your sprained hand. What a pain literally. I'm glad you were cheered up with your swap. Lots of fun and pretty treasures. Tea from your friend in England is awesome. How sweet. I too would like to go to England some time.

Yes, we need to be thankful for our many blessings. Especially when we know of others who have so little.

I to love wisteria, It will a while before we see it here in the mountains. It grows on the fences. It is so pretty.

Take care of that sprained hand.

Lisa said...

Following you back sweet lady!

I'm still having the sprained hand issue too so I can truly sympathize. I realize how blessed I am in the day to day to be able to do things like open a door without hassle (which right now I can't.)

I love your wonderful swap surprises, and I am a huge wisteria lover (and old barn lover) too.

the glitches only make the 'non-glitch' moments all the sweeter!
