How is everyone doing this week?  I can't believe it's Tuesday afternoon.  I swear I'm going crazy! Time keeps slipping away on me!!

In the mail, I got 2 awesome things!  First, Melody of Brown Gingham Creations sent me this beautiful vintage hankie, that she then embroidered on.  She is so thoughtful!  She remembered that my house's colors are blue, brown and a touch of white.  She waited, looking for just the perfect brown vintage hankie to work on.  And went over some of the leaves in blue, brow, and white thread.

I tried to zoom in a bit to show the beautiful embroidery.

She even put a little wood leaf on each corner!
I can't wait to use it, as soon as the Christmas stuff is all put away this weekend.
Thank you so much Melody!!

Then, I got the purse I ordered from  I was so lucky to win a gift certificate from a contest at Cindy Adkins blog!  It was for $37.50!  Awesome!  Novica is another handmade goods site.  I picked out a super cute purse, and it came yesterday!
Look at how pretty it was wrapped!

Is that not the cutest bag?  It is really big, cotton fibers, it has a zipper and magnet closure and and a zip pocket inside too!

These bells on the outside pocket are supposed to be lucky!

The cute pom-poms just make it cuter!!
Thank you Cindy!!  It was so fun to win and get to pick my prize!!

And that's what's up with me!!!  How about you????
