It has been a while since my last post.  Seems lately that the faster I go the further behind I get.  I am long overdue in sending "thank yous" to some very dear blogging friends for some special deliveries I have received in the past few weeks.

I don't know how familiar some of you are with Kim of OLD ROAD PRIMITIVES, but if you know her like I do, then you know how much of an advocate she is for planet green.  I was blessed to receive some of the cleaning products that she uses and decided to use them for a couple of weeks before sharing with everyone and see just how good these products worked.  They are wonderful!  Not only do they do the job, they smell fantastic  and are environmentally safe. 

If you are interested in trying these environmentally safe cleaning products, you can find them at  Sweet Grass Farm is a family owned business who specialize in environmentally friendly plant based cleaners and other products.    Thanks so much, Kim, for introducing me to these wonderful products.  I am so thrilled with them that they are becoming a permanent part of my cleaning routine.  Check out Kim's blog here:  She offers great tutorials and wonderful primitive patterns.

I received another "special delivery" from another wonderful friend, Jody of SWEET BEAR CREEK WHIMS.  If you are familiar with Jody's work you may not know that she has a real gift and a love for photography.  I was recently blessed to receive some beautiful note cards that were made by Jody using her photograpic talents.  These cards are absolutely amazing and even though they were made with the intention that I would use them, I am finding it hard to part with them as each one is so beautiful.

Some of the cards that Jody designed were based on photos of one of my mousers and her BFF Beulah. How great is that!!!! If you would like to see more of  Jody's photographic talent, wonderful creations and patterns you can find them at

Another "special delivery" I received last week came a grand opening celebration giveaway at The Olde Primitive Peddler.  This cutest of little Bella bunny dolls was made by the very talented Jenn Martino - West of BEAUTIFUL DISASTER ORIGINALS.
