Mail goodies and my heartfelt thanks!

Hello friends,yes it has been a bit since I did a post.My apologies,Spring has sprung and I have been trying to get things caught up.I promised myself that the computer would be off limits till I had met some of my goals.Once I start reading all of your wonderful blogs I find it hard to stop.LOL!
I am shouting with joy as I share my mail goodies with you.Almost 10 days ago I received a surprise package in the mail!Again I humbly apologize for the delay in posting. It came at the perfect time to because things have been a tad rough lately.Some wonderful, amazing person had ordered me one of Lecia's gorgeous bonnets! The card stated that it was from my friend in Christ.It brought tears streaming down.I can not express how touched I am by this person's generosity!!! Lecia's bonnets have always been beautiful in pics but in person it will blow you away.Such a talented lady.Thank you Lecia as well for the part you played in my surprise.Be sure to check out Lecia's blog.Here is a pic of my bonnet.




Isn't it beautiful and doesn't it look great on my old trencher.Thanks Shirlee! ( I stole the idea from her.Wink)
Love and am so very thankful for it.The bonnet is beautiful and so is the friendship and thought behind it.!!!

My second mail goodie came a few days after my bonnet.I was the blessed person to win a giveaway hosted by Willa
I urge you to check out Willa's blog!!She is a super lady and oh my gosh is she talented.As some of you know I used to paint but Willa blows my stuff out of the water.I am in awe of her painting skills. Her piece will always hold a place in my home and heart.Thank you so much Willa for the lovely piece! Here let me show you what I won...

Love it so much!!!! It is hanging just as you enter my dining room!
Just look at this little painted fabric heart!Gorgeous!
And a close up of her rooster.Did I say I love it? LOL!

Thank you Willa and to my secret bonnet giver! I am so blessed even on the days when I don't realize it.I have met so many super ladies on the net and I am thankful for each one of you! In  my next post I will share about a special day that I had where I was able to meet one of my good blogging buddies.


As I bring this post to a close I would like to ask for prayers for all those dealing with the harsh storms that happened overnight.It is so sad to see the destruction and loss of life.My thoughts and prayers will continue to be with them. Have a wonderful day my friends.Blessings,Jen
