Today there was a ring at my door I was not expecting anyone we are having bad weather freezing rain and just a big mess out there right now.  Everything that I can remember that I had ordered as been delivered as far as I can remember lol you know I just had a birthday so umm I am entitled to have short spurts of memory lost.  Any who I went to see who was at the door no one there that only meant that the mail carrier has left a package outside.  Sure enough there it was a box not just any box but a box just for me all the way from Austrailia from one of my best blogging buddies Sandi http://bearlysaneaust.blogspot.com/  Sandi had a giveaway and I was the Winner!  Look at my goodies eat your hearts out ladies lol

 Beautiful Hat I just love it!
 Who in this world doesn't love BUTTONS!

 Now if you could ever describe me in fabric this would be it!  I love this fabric it has my style and all of my favorite colors!  Hmmm I might be making a pillow for my bed from this. 
 Now this is what is really surprising also this is not only my favorite flower but my favorite scents Peonie and Rose gosh I'm such a Lucky Woman
 Anyone who knows me knows how much I love love note cards.  I feel as though people have become so impersonal these days no one hardly ever writes a letter or even send out cards but I do lol

 A Bear Pattern yes a Bear Pattern I have made only two bears in my life  and they both were large jointed bears, we made in doll class about 12 years ago lol.  Sandi I am up for the challenge.  I am going to do my best in making this bear.  I love bears and rabbits and have been wanting for so long to make a rabbit doll.  I have rabbits here and there throughout my house but not one rabbit have I ever made.  My muse has awakened lol
Have a great day all
Peace and Blessings
