The Jitterbug and My Thanks

The jitterbug was what I was doing yesterday when I opened up my mailbox! Now  notice,I did not say it was pretty  but I  was  dancing and a squealing because that sweet Mr.Mailman left a package in my box from Carol of Buttermilk Creek Farm.Folks,you need to skip on over to Carol's wonderful blog and check out all of her amazing creations!  She is a wonderful person and a true artisan. Let me just tell you the dance I was doing at the mailbox  was nothing compared to what happened when I opened up the box!I just about gave my poor momma a heart attack ,I was so excited.As  many of you know already I was blessed to win Carol's recent giveaway celebrating her blog anniversary!!!I have long admired Carol's mouse creations,as you all know she is extremely talented.Folks until you have held one of her mouse friends in your hands you really have no idea the detail that she puts into one of her creations! Miss Milly is just lovely and something I will treasure forever! Carol was beyond generous and included a bag of grubby eggs and a yummy smelling pantry cake as well as Miss Milly.Thank you so much Carol! 

Please forgive my photographic skills because the pics just do not do Carol's creations justice.Miss Milly is adorable!!

My yummy smelling tart and sweet note from Carol.Loved the bunny  notepaper.

Grubby eggs and the sweet bunny tag! We all know I love me some bunnies!

Thank you Carol for the wonderful ,amazing goodies! 

Well today has been spent running errands and taking care of hubby's optometrist appointment.One of the errands was stopping at the feed store because the critters all have to have full tummies or they are not happy.LOL! It just wasn't to smart of hubby to let me tag  along ,because you know with Easter this weekend that there were cages of bunnies and chicks everywhere.LOL! Do you see where this is going? Yeppers ,I am richer one bunny this afternoon.Hubby just shook his head and kept muttering I should have left you at home.Giggles. In my defense he should be thankful because the cage was full and I stopped at only one.LOL! We are having a bit of a cool snap so when it warms up a bit I will share some pics of my new  little addition.

I am going to say good afternoon and go find some Benadryl because I managed to get myself a case of poison ivy and I am a might itchy...okay a lot itchy and a bit cranky.May you all have a blessed and Happy Easter! Spring Blessings,Jen

Well now that mouse is too cute! I hate poison ivy! HATE IT. I have the hardest time getting rid of it without going to the dermatologist. THe last time I got some Poison Ivy Soap and tea tree oil and took turns using both of them. It finally dried up and went away.
