BLUE MONDAY & A SURPRISE FROM A BLOGGING FRIEND


Hello and welcome to Blue Monday hosted by Sally of Smiling Sally. Thank you Sally for hosting this fun event!
Today I have some pretty blue and yellow dish towels that I recently picked up at Walmart. I'm a dish towel person, if I have to do dishes then I've got to have pretty towels!






I'd also like to show you all the goodies I got in a package from a blogging friend. Miss Peach from Miss Peach's Meowz.
What a surprise I had in my mailbox last week from my sweet blogging friend!

An adorable Americana tag made by Karla, looks right at home in my Americana bath.

For Angel and all the other kitties some Whisker Lickin's and a fishing pole.

Angel trying to catch the fish with Vira watching are wanting to join in the fun.

A pretty vintage apron, Holly Hobbie coffee jar and some Peach Tea.
Delish Colombian Coffee and a Holly Hobbie coffee mug.

Packed in a pretty Holly Hobbie gift bag.
A cute little hand made kitty tag and a Women's Blessing pen and bookmark.

A Vintage Fashions magazine, seeds, crochet dish cloth and some inspirational reading.

The first issue of Holly Hobbie's Home Times. I was thrilled to get this magazine, it was just being discused in the Holly Hobbie's Collectible Club that I belong too. Funny story about this magazine, I had bought it back in the 70's when it came out and when my son was 2nd grade and had to do current events, he decided to do his current events on his Mommy's favorite magazine. He cut it all up, I was soooo upset but did not let him know because he was so proud of the good job he did on his homework. I will treasure this issue! LOL
Last but not least three Country Gardens magazines. How sweet of Miss Peach to think of me and collect all my favorite things. Thank you so much Miss Peach and Karla, so much thought and love went into this gift and I will think of you each and every time I look at one of these gifts! Bless you!
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great week.
Bless you, Shirl
