Lots of sweet goodies for our new pup, Peanut. Yummy Trail Mix (which she loves and thinks she has to have every time we come in from outside) a new squeak toy and a new dainty girly collar. Mary's daughter owns a doggie day care and makes and sells the collars. How's that for spoiling the pup long distance (((giggle))). Peanut thanks you with a wag of her tail :-)
AND, THAT'S NOT ALL.........YOU JUST HAVE TO MEET MIZZ BERDIE...
This doll is just amazing. Mary's pride in her workmanship is very apparent and she has a keen eye for the tiniest of details. Each time I look at her I notice something else that I missed the first time. And what Mammy would be complete without a basket full of warm buttermilk biscuits and a bottle of fresh buttermilk.
Trust me when I say the buscuits and buttermilk look good enough to eat. ha! What an inviting treat resting in her lap. Although I don't know the measurements of this wonderful doll, she is quite large and sits comfortably in my antique cane bottom chair. If you get the chance to see Mary's dolls or to purchase one, you will not be disappointed. Thank you, sweet Mary, for this wonderful gift. Mary and I will get the chance to meet in just a few short weeks. I am really looking forward to getting to know her and her fiance, Mark, a lot better. We have a really fun trip planned in Amish country. Mary also sent me two huge bags of raw flax. Unfortunately, my camera batteries are low and I couldn't get a good pic of them. Sorry!

Also, last week I received a package from my good friend, Joyce of THE BEAR'S BLOG (who, by the way is hosting Camp Good Bear.) The package was marked DO NOT OPEN UNTIL JULY 24TH. OM Gosh!!! Every morning I would get up and see the package and think, hmmmmm......should I wait or should I open....will this be the day that I give in to the temptation? Well, I did wait until the 24th and here are pics of the wonderful goodies that Joyce made for me....
An adorable Halloween table runner complete with cat, bat and pumpkin done in some awesome Fall print fabrics. Joyce's quilting and applique on this piece is beautiful and I love it. Can't wait for Fall so I can display it on my table. And here is a pic of what else was in the box....
Just the sweetest little reindeer made from fleece and wool felt complete with little stick antlers. And in the back you can see a cute wooden Christmas tree. Now who wouldn't be delighted to receive this adorable Christmas gathering. I certainly can't wait for the holidays and a little cooler weather. ha! Thank you so much for thinking of me on my special day. Joyce has some adorable handmade cookie cutter critters and bears as well as a Shabby Chic Shop you will certainly be needing to check out. Just click HERE to be taken to her blog and while you are there you can check out the Camp Good Bear Photo Album.
Thank you to everyone for the cards, e-cards and birthday wishes. You have certainly made my day, awe heck, my week a wonderful one.
