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
