A HUGE Thank You To Some Lovely Friends!!


With the busy-ness that each day brings I seem to be so far behind in getting around to visiting my blog friends and to acknowledge some awesomeness that has been sent my way. But I want each of you to know you are so important to me and I thank you! If I could box up my giggles and smiles that you bring to me I would send them to you in one big parcel! Each and every one of you are so special to me and so I am passing these awards on to all of you! Duhgall sends his little blog dog friends the award, too!


Thank you Patrice (A Sentimental Journery), Louise (The Home Is Where The Heart Is)and Kate (Our Red House) for this...


...and thank you Pam (White O'Morn Cottage) for this Gift Of Gab (Hilarious!)....
....and to Sherry (Creations From My Heart) for this bit of bling for The Diamond Award...
...and Duhgall gets an award, too!..



...from his friend Charli (Charli and Me) !!! Charli, Duhgall says to tell you Thank YOU and he is honored to get an award from such a beauty!!
Some time back I won a few wonderful giveaways that I just love!!!


Below is a lovely gift from Susan from T-Party. She sent me the sweetest mug and aromatic Lavender tea - which is almost all gone....


Thank you, Susan!


Look at all of these fabulous goodies below that I won from Linda (Parker's General Store) in her "second place" giveaway. What is even more special with this box of goodies is that her granddaughter helped her pick out the items and box them up. How sweeeeeet is that? Each item is just perfect!! Now Linda is quite the cook! If you need some good "tried and true" recipes, then mosey on over to see what Linda has cooked up!



Thank you Linda!!



This Happiness Is Homemade jar was part of the giveaway, too. It immediately joined the other bits and bobs on my kitchen counter and holds little Halloween candies for now.
Thought I'd share some of the recipes in the Fall Cooking book (click to enlarge).
Fall Butternut Stew - OH YUM-O!!!
The cookbook has some great tips and I could not agree with this idea more. I use my retro metal picnic baskets to store sewing notions in and also use them for display.

I am always grateful when bloggers share recipes. I'm thinking that butternut stew looks pretty awesome.
