In My Life

This morning is beautiful! Crisp and cool and perfect for us as we've been sweltering from the early heat waves. I took a walk out on my dock first thing.


I've had alot going on lately. The roof has been redone, the 'kids' came in this past weekend, and then I got the remnants of  a nasty tummy bug. I've been a little remiss on telling you about my Giveaway win and my swap from a good cyber friend.
As I came back up the hill, I spotted a 'pair' in my favorite sitting place.
Queenie has a new friend thanks to my recent Giveaway win from Brenda over at THE RUSTY THIMBLE.
Goosey Lucy is making herself at home and Queenie is being the generous hostess in showing her about.
Aren't they adorable?!
I've also been blessed to find a wonderful cyber friend from the foothills of Arizona.
My 'lady bug' friend, Trish and I had a friendship swap the other day. I sent her some simple lady bugs and she sent me this...
 
Trish and her husband are the owners of "The Rustic Peddlers Barn'. You can find her blog, "Dusty, Tattered, Cupboard Doors" HERE.
I'm working on some Americana pieces and finishing up some 'bunnies' for a donation to a shelter of the Humane Society on the East coast of Florida. They're having a "Bun Fest' of all things!!
Hope life is treating you all well.
I've another Swap prize to tell you about in the next coming days when I receive it. I'll also have a little something to Giveaway, too!!
Stay tuned!

Hi Vicki, your new goodies are so awesome! Love how you displayed them sitting in your fav. spot:) I can see why it's your fav., looks so peaceful. I agree with Angie, the pic. of your dock looks sooooooo inviting! Wish we were having a heat wave, it's been on the cool side here and has been raining for the last couple days....almost feels like fall instead of spring. I think it's so great that we are able to make new friends while staying home and not having to travel all across the country to do so. Heck, we can even make new friends while drinking coffee and staying in our pj's if we want! Now how awesome is that? LOL I was hoping your goodies would make it there today,hopefully they should come tomorrow. Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting! Big hugssss Mary

Hello Vicky, Ok so I have decided that since Florida use to be my favorite place to vacation in the summers with my son, that I have got to come and check that view out myself. I love it thank you for sharing, If I was sitting there I would be happy too.
Great swap goodies from Trish
