Mail Goodies

this lil red birdie flew in from Lauries Charming Design Studio!
I was the lucky winner of Lauries 200th blog give-away.
Look how perfect the red birdie looks with the red rose lamp that my mum gave to me!
This lamp was stored in our attic when I was growing up....
then hubby and I purchased the home I grew up in so we could raise our children there!

While helping Mum and Dad move, this lamp was being packed to go to storage and I asked if I could have it!

Mum said that her mum gave it to her as a wedding gift when her and daddy married!
I absolutely love it! What a treasure!
I haven't found the perfect shade for it yet, but I am not giving up!

Cindy at Yapping Cat Studio had the sweetest cherry towel on her blog and I commented that I loved it!
Imagine my surprise when I found this in my mail box!
Cindy you are such a sweetheart, thank you soooooo much!
I love it!

I also received a package all the way from Australia!
Thank you sweet Glenda from Sweet Daisy Dreams
I helped Glenda get her blog set up and she sent the yummiest australian chocolates,
a sweet lil craft angel, a cherry fabric heart and the sweetest kangaroo with a baby roo in her pouch, as a thank you gift!
Thank you Miss Glenda... it was fun helping and getting to know you!
{sorry no picture, its stormy and dark here today}

I So love Cherries too. I always wanted a red and white Cherry Motif kitchen. I guess I'll have to wait until I get sick of the pink and green. Right now it looks like a Candy Store in a Pink Fairy Castle!
