Fun Stuff!

Hey girlfriends! Last week when I was feeling sooo blue, a surprise package came from Noelle! (Blue no more!) Ya know what's funny? Noelle had written, asking for my address again and apologized for blowing the surprise but I joked with her and said, "Oh, you just want my address so you can send me a Christmas card- right?" ☺ And then I promptly forgot all about it! Ha-ha! So it was STILL a surprise when it came, which I thought was pretty neat. Look at my cute little blog sign! Isn't it adorable? I was one of Noelle's Pay it forward participants so this is what she made for me!
I love the colors, the flowers, the polka dots- everything!
And because she loves me and we be the girlfriends, she sent other goodies, too! Look at these sweet baby bowls to add to my "Mom"collection! (See this post for details.) Noelle had told me about the plates but the bowls were a total surprise! Although I love my plates, these are my first bowls, so I was pretty tickled!

She sent this pretty blue linen, too but it wasn't this wrinkled when it came. Sorry Noelle! It's my fault! Um, I *could* have ironed it but... I didn't! I've sort of been on vacation- ya know. ☺ I was also very happy to get some of those cute flower cut outs for playing "crafter" with!

Hmmm, I REALLY should have ironed this first! Ha!
Thanks again, Noelle! ♥ ♥ ♥
Hope you all have a great week end! I think I might need to stay home and clean house! And iron... ☺

Hey pretty lady,
Had a bit of catching up to do and as usually I find myself smiling all through your blog!
What a wonderful friend you have. Noelle was so sweet to make the blog sign. It's just adorable! And I just loved the story about the cookies your daughter-in-law sent. Too cute.
I hope you are enjoying your August so far, can you believe how fast the summer has gone by already?
Have a great week,
