2 packages in the mail today... also met a fellow blogger at the show Sunday

Hello Blog Friends, Today is very rainy in Maine but it got brighter when the mail lady came and brought me 2 packages. One from the Giveaway I won a while ago... this package came from over the Pond so it took longer but was worth the wait. Thank you Silvia

Look at the postage from Europe... I have never seen such a large beautiful stamp
Silvia sent this beautiful stitchery and and Egg and she also sent me a magazine of her neck of the woods to show me what it is like over there. I have always wanted to visit so for now I am going to just sit and read that magazine and dream. Thank you so much

Here is my package from Samantha, She hosted an Easter swap. This box smelled so good even before I opened it.

and look at all the goodies inside. Samantha made some fabric covered eggs, the most adorable bunny pillows, my favorite pattern of hers, Washday... and I wish you could smell the soy tarts, O Holy Moly my house smells good. My favorite is the Apple and Maple Bourbon, it smells so good. She was so sweet to include my daughter too, She sent the most adorable apron , Kennedy put it on so I could take her picture, then she ran upstairs to play at her kitchen with it.

Here is Kennedy in her Jelly Bean apron making a goofy face. Thank you so much Samantha.. everyone should go check out her blog, Samantha's accessories

So now to the weekend... the Hubs and I headed to Mass to attend the Market Square Cash and Carry show. We got there a little early to get in line and then a couple came up in line after us... We all just kind of stood there for a minute and then the lady said, excuse me, I just want to tell you "I love your Coach purse, Pink is my favorite color" and that started our conversation. Her name is Tricia and her husband is Ken. These are two of the nicest people we have met in a long time. So we chatted while waiting in line to get in to the show and Tricia and I soon realized that we both blog and followed many of the same blogs. Her blog is Hillcrest Home Prims, I was already a follower of hers. Isn't it amazing how small a world we live in. Both Paul and I are very thankful to have met Tricia and Ken and hope to keep in touch  with them.

Well I hope you all have a great week

Another package and a snow storm

So the only light in my day today was getting the mail and there was a wonderful package... I am so thankful for getting that package today because I've gotta tell you this snow storm has made for a grumpy day. I tried to shovel the 3 inches of snow on top of 4 inches of slush, that resulted in a very sore back. Had to call a plow guy to come clean up the driveway. Thank goodness for the plow guy. So here are some pictures of my new package

Gina from Cat Nap Inn Primitives sent me this package
and once again, the picture does not do any justice. This is an absolutely beautiful bag. Thank you Gina 
now on to the Nor'easter that hit Maine and the rest of New England today, I really thought the weather guys all got together and were pulling a big April fools joke on us with the weather forecast but to my surprise, they were serious. We got alot of snow that resulted in about 4 inches of slush with 3 or so inches of snow on top. Impossible to shovel, but great for a snowman. Kennedy had fun making a snowman in the middle of the turnaround.

see all this snow, yesterday this was grass...we really got alot of that white stuff. I sure hope mother nature starts to get in a better mood soon. Enough with winter and time for spring.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend
