Thank you Linda,

I so believe that friends are angels here on earth...........
I was having a rough day yesterday,  My oldest son came over and brought lunch, he waited on me hand and foot, got my lunch ready, served me and made sure I was comfortable as I was in quite a bit of pain.  How ever I didn't think about asking him to go check on my mail.......

Later in the evening my youngest daughter and her family  came over.  My 10
year old granddaughter came in to stay with me and help out and most of all be company for me.  (she is just like me, we think a lot alike and she is quite crafty)
 To  cut thru the chase I ask her to get my mail and along with a few little junk mail items she was wagging in a brown envelope in not knowing the treasure she was delivering.....

I opened the envelope and was over whelmed not only with the content but with the shear fact that someone had thought of me.  That special someone was Linda B.

I was amazed when I opened the package, it was a lovely pen which I am assuming her husband made and a beautiful hand made card.  Needless to say that topped any dose of medicine I had had all day. 
See for yourself

Thank you Linda, these are both things I will cherish not just the beautiful material things but for the thoughtfulness that they represent.  Thank You are another precious friend I found in  blogland....

Another sweet surprise

I received another sweet surprise today, it was from Vicki from the Rusty Rooster.  Check out this site......  I happened on it one day and have been a frequent visitor ever since.
Here are some of the sweet vintage items she shared.   Thank you so much Vicki

I have roosters in my kitchen so look what I did.

I had a metal pitcher that I have some wooden utensils in and on the tag it said Believe

I added one of the rooster tags Vicki sent and I love it.

Not easy just laying around

First of all this is not as easy as it sounds.... When your not used to being off your feet and doing for yourself, it is hard to get used to.  I actually have not yet and find myself up and about without even thinking about it, anyway here is one of my first little projects.......

I call them purse pals.. they are about 4" long and 1 1/2" wide.  When you don't want to carry a big tablet or note pad in your purse these are just the right size to jot down a phone number or blog address.

I added a little embellishment on the front and put a clip to help keep it closed//

Surprise Vacation ??????????????

Surprise Vacation ??????????????

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
Don"t know if you would call this a vacation, but it was a surprise
I had a doctor appointment Thursday morning but ended up in the ER on Wednesday, was admitted and
came home yesterday.  Although someone waited on me for everything I can't really consider it a vacation.  Anyway I am home will be completely off my feet for 5 to 6 weeks so I hope to use this time to do some serious crafting.
Hope to catch up visiting all of your blogs...............
