I won a Giveaway and jumping for joy---a giveaway in the mail and SNOW all in one weekend

Well, it's officially Sunday.

 Not just any Sunday, but the one where about 7+ inches of the white powdery snow is supposed to start falling late in the evening. and after  midnight tomorrow.....even more.

If I sound ridiculously excited ( i know, i know)  I am!

Today was a good day of Busy Nothings (Jane Austen) and somewhere down the day I accomplished some laundry in my PJs. It was simply too cold to go out in it until the snow comes. THEN, I have my thermals ready!!!!!!!! My childish nature comes out the strongest in snow weather. Always has and probably when I'm old with a walking cane, I'll throw it down and lay in it then too someway. I hope to make snow angels and name them by Monday. I hope to bake the cookies I missed during the holidays with a big cuppo something. I'm hoping that channelling Scarlet O'Hara will last through the weekend! ;O

Not one stitch today but resting my eye ball a bit.

I did just finish ordering for the first time Walnut pieces to stain some old finishes for the prim look in hopes that they are not quite looking like they are coming out of a fire. ( or FARE from the mountains.LOL) but just enough to look primmy.

I also ordered 32 ct Belgium linen for a few new patterns I have and one small pair of vintage scissors.
I ordered these from Pineberry Lane. If you haven't visited this's a good one, my friend.

Speaking of scissors, Miss. Jolene drew my name in her recent giveaway. It was a very nice and sweet (as usual Jolene) expression of her thoughts of her birthday and Christmas, her Birthmous was the celebration.

I won a brand spanking new pair of Gingham Sonia scissors, the embroidery ones and the label says from the Shepherd's Bush. I remember reading I thought on her blog she went there and was so envious. Oh, how I wish I had those opportunities BUT I am ever so thankful to Jolene for picking me. I needed something GOOD happening in my life and these scissors and the lovely pattern, materials, floss and design/linen for a scissor keep for them, was like having Christmas morning all over again and more. I don't know how to say thank you enough!  Love you Jolene!!!!!!!!!!  You always know how to lift spirits.

Take a look-see

Jolene, girl, I'm doing a happy dance and I haven't done that in a very long time. Thank you.

Now, I'm going to try real hard to go to sleep and hope that tomorrow the snow comes alot and I can make a snowman just like BodyGuard, gun and all.  Hehehehehehehhehe

  3. What a fun win from Sweet Jolene! She is the best! Glad you're looking forward to snow - it IS a good reason to stay in and stitch. I'd like it more if I didn't have to work and go out in it. THAT, I hate!

And as for the snow we just had our second storm of the season here in NY and my son is having a ball making snow angels, sleigh riding down our hill and just throwing snow at his dear old mom!

  18. I do hope you enjoy these two gifts. If you haven't already opened them up, the scissors are engraved. Kind of Cool! Now you have an excuse NOT to go out into the cold, you need to sit and stitch. LOL Sending lots of smiles between many miles...
