2 posts in one day!


Ive been lying around all day long, actually even took a little snooze! probably only for a few minutes.. but its pretty unheard of for me to sleep during the day. I went out for a bit this morning, but came home and put jammies on and thats about that! I did a little sewing, played around on the computer and had a roast in the crockpot. thats the extent of my day.


Except that I had done a swap with my friend Kim from Kims musings. Her package actually came the other day, but I didnt want to open it until I had hers ready to go. which it is now. And she encouraged me to open it today, so I did! What a great package of halloween treats!
There was so much in the box! this adorable necklace, and under the necklace in this picture you can see the vintage black and white checked apron! sweet! I love both!

Kim makes the cutest things, check out this owl! He quickly found his way onto the shelf above my couch with some other halloween friends. uh.. I think he is a she though!

Kim made this great paper ornament! I love it. i hung it on my craft room tree. My craft room tree is desparetely in need of ornies.. I was going to make some today, but didnt get to it. maybe tomorrow morning.

Other things in the package are this pumpkin sented candle and pumpkin scones mix.. (which I cant wait to make!) and you cant see it in this picture but a vintage nut cup full of candy eyeballs! Kim also made the cutest little halloween party hat, which is being proudly worn by one of my favorite baby dolls!

This is the card she sent too.. soo cute! thank you for everything Kim. I she likes what I'm sending her. I forgot to take pics, so you all will have to check her blog when she gets it!

Ok.. Im heading back to the couch.
I really need to feel 100% better for tomorrow as we are celebrating jens 30th birthday and everyone will be over for dinner. I will be making stuffed shells. Thats what she asked for for her birthday dinner. I'll have to make a cake in the morning too.

anyways.. thats all for tonight folks.. Im whipped!

(I'm resting meri! Im resting!) LOL!

What great stuff you got! I need to do a Halloween swap sometime, I just love all those ornies.
BTW, I got all my fall stuff out today, and spent some time placing things around the house. I don't have near the amount that you have. That's why I need to do a swap...

WHAT A SCORE! No tricks for you - just treats!

And your day sounded SO SCRUMPTIOUS! Sometimes we just need days like that. Shoot, even God took a day off for rest. And if it's good enough for God........

Oh' that's the cutest stuff! I know you love Halloween as much as me. I hope your taking the time to get all the rest your body needs. You know if your tired it's telling you something.

Thanks for responding to my help post. I get so frustrated with blogger and those forum pages too. I did go there first and tried a couple of things but as you see they didn't work.

Hope ya'll have wonderful time celebrating Jen's birthday. Don't over do.


P.S. I've got a cupcake set giveaway here:
