Winter Basics and Baubles Swap

I was part of another one of the awesome swaps hosted by Heidi at Foxgloves, Fabric and Folly! This one was the Winter Basics and Baubles Swap. My swap partner was Terri from Grace Notes. Here is what she sent me: The Baubles part...a pretty little red purse with a rose pin inside!
Now for the basics...a pretty red and white tiny file folder. I am going to use it for coupons.
A great pair of kitchen shears and the cutest red measuring spoons!
Two pretty bundles of kitchen towels. I hung two of this first bundle in the kitchen and my daughter claimed them for herself! Isn't it funny how our kids think everything we have is automatically theirs?
This bundle has a pretty vintage feel.
I didn't get to take pictures of what I sent to Terri so I swiped the picture she took from her blog. Here is what I sent her: a couple of kitchen towels, a vintage pot holder, measuring cups, jar openers,a couple of little Cinnamon candles and for the bauble the prettiest butterfly pin.
I also included a St Patrick's Day tag that I made.
Thanks Terri for all of the great stuff...I really do love it all!
And Heidi thank you for all of the awesome swaps that you host. I know how much work it must be. If you haven't participated in one of Heidi's swaps yet you need to because they are so much fun and the themes are great. Go on over to her blog Foxgloves, Fabric and Folly to check them out. Heidi's next swap is the Vintage Easter Swap going on now. I'm having so much fun collecting all of the goodies for my partner...I can't wait to get my package! Peggy

Wishing all of my blogging friends a very Happy St. Patricks Day!
We made our corned beef and cabbage on Sunday but plan on some leftovers for dinner.
Gotta eat some on St. Pat's Day.
Better get back to work.

I am having a hard time lately coming up with things to blog about. I've noticed that this seems to be a problem with other bloggers too. Hopefully this blogger block will pass and I will get inspired soon. In the mean time I hope I don't bore you all too much. I had a fun weekend with my grandkids~ All three kids stayed and we did nothing but play! The weather over the weekend was perfect. The area had some storms on Sunday but we only had a little rain and then it was sunny the rest of the day. On Satureday the kids played outside all day with a little neighbor girl. We spent some time at the park and we took a couple of walks in the wagon. The end of a perfect day of playing was the ice cream man ringing his bell! On Sunday we took them all to what we call "the farm". It's land my husbands family owns about an hour out of town. The kids got to throw rocks in the creek, climb on the hay bails in the barn and feed the cows. Pretty cool stuff for city kids. They went home last night and I slept like a rock I was so pooped! But pooped in a good way. It may take me a week to revover but it was definitly worth it. ~ On a totally different subject. I saw something cool on the news this morning for those of us who love to shop online. It is a web site called Hoopla Doopla The site has links to hundreds of stores that you probably already shop at. When you link to the store from this site you earn cash back on your purchases. The site gets a commission for linking you to the store and splits the commission with you the shopper. The site is free and the money you earn can be deposited directly into your PayPal account or they will send you a check in the mail. Now I just heard about this site so I haven't actually used it to link to a store to make a purchase yet but it sounds like a really cool idea. It does have a lot of stores that I regularly shop at so I'm gonna give it a try. As long as it doesn't cost me money and I will be buying there anyway. As much as I spend at JoAnn's this could be a really good thing! Hope you all have a wonderful week. Peggy

Bad Blogger...

I've been a bad, bad blogger. It has been a hectic couple of weeks. I had a business trip right after my birthday. I was able to do alittle antique shopping but not much. Had alot of work to do and the weather was bad so I didn't venture out too much. I wasn't home more than a couple of days when the flu hit and it hit bad. I was the only one in the house who got it! What's that about? I finally felt better the end of last week so I was able to have my two granddaughters over the weekend. That was fun. I hadn't seen them for almost a month! Then I woke up this morning with either a cold in my eye or pink eye. I'll find out for sure in the morning when I see the doctor. It wasn't all bad. I got to work on the t-shirt quilt that I need to get done. And I was able to list some linens on Etsy! Yeh!! Finally. I have been wanting to do this for months now but finally had the time to do it. It's alot of work to get the items ready, to take the pictures and to write the descriptions. But I did get a few things on there. I'll keep adding as I get the time. It's not easy when you have a big girl job but I'll make it work. So if you get a chance to take a look at what I've listed. Here is the link: Peggy
