Strawberries & Much More!

When the mailman rings the doorbell and has a package for me,
 well it makes my day! 
Recently I won Garage Sale Gal's Blog Birthday giveaway and it is sooooo cute!
I love cute packing and Deb wrapped some of the items in sewing pattern tissue
The giveaway had a great 'berry' theme
The vintage kitchen towel and apron both in strawberry fabric...love them! 
Look at the cute pin cushion and Tag that Deb made!  
Thanks Deb for being such a great friend!

The last time I had a giveaway it was from PrintRunner and was for stickers. It was won by  ColoradoLady and I was lucky to be offered the same prize.  I got them in the mail this week!
I made Tiger some book plates! 
 I found this great vintage bookplate at the Graphics Fairy!  She has the best free vintage graphics around!  
Goes perfectly with one of the new thrifty books I found for Tiger! 
Look at these great books about Owls! 

I also recently got a great free offer from Shutterfly
for a photo magnet
I choose to get this great pic of Mom and I 
It's on my refrigerator now! 

Charlie said I hadn't posted his picture in a long time...ever since that 'Tiger' kid came along he feels neglected...so here you go Charlie!


I'm joining Kathe for

What a sweet gift!

Linda, what wonderful treasures you received! Tiger is still such a sweetie! Poor Charlie does have some stiff competition there, but I think he will survive.! Tell Charlie we still love him even though Tiger steals the show at times.

Even if they're not "brown paper packages tied up in string", I still love getting packages in the mail from Friends.
Way to go!
