Fun, Fun, Fun

I have had some fun things happen to me lately. On Tuesday, I found a bouquet of Daffodils on my desk at school. One of my coworkers brought them in for us. What a nice surprise. They are so pretty!
I won a Giveaway over at
buttercupcountsherblessings.
blogspot.com
Carol sent me this wonderful
book with really neat ideas
for creating family treasures.
Fun gifts for birthdays, showers,
anniversaries etc. She also sent a
recipe book filled with A LOT of
YUMMY ideas.
Thanks Carol!!!!!
Debbie at ouroldhomestead.

award! Thank you!!!!

All of the ladies are wonderful!
So is Debbie.

  5. Thanks for the award! Blogger is doing some real weird things, at least when I go on. I seem to not be able to add anymore things to my side bar :( I have looked and looked, but seems like all I find is others having the same problem. It has been weeks now. So, I can't add the button as of now.

  8. ok, I so want a copy of that magazine about making special gifts for people! That looks and sounds like my cup of tea!!! The flowers are beautiful! Blake caught Bailey picking some flowers out of Larry and Shiela's flower bed the other day. He made her go and tell Shiela and appolagize. My poor baby girl was so upset that her Daddy made her do that! She said to me when she got home was," all i was wanting to do is pick you some flowers!!":( She was saying this through a lot of tears!
