There are 5 things in life you cannot recover: A stone...after it's thrown. A word...after it is said. An occasion...after it's missed. The time...after it's gone. A person...after they die. Life is short. Break the rules. Forgive quickly. Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably. Never regret anything that made you smile. Enjoy Life!!

I forgot...

I forgot to post a picture of the Valentine's gift I got from my Secret Stitcher. 

The candy house had a nice white bow on it, but the kids couldn't resist getting into the candy.  It is a really neat little house filled with all sorts of candy.  It also has a little metal scoop that is a little hard to see in the picture.  I also got some more Belle Soie silks in pretty Valentine shades.  They are so very soft I can't wait to stitch something with them. 

Hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day tomorrow.

My birthday was January 26th, but I am just now getting around to sharing my lovely gifts I received from my wonderful friends and my Secret Stitcher. 

My new glass flower frog came from Marsha.  I am so happy to have another one since I already filled the other one up with scissors.  I have more scissors and needed another frog.  Lisa gifted me the Ouija board flat wallet that had some needles and a skein of DMC floos inside.  Patti gave me the wonderful wooden case.  The wood is paper thin and just too cool for words.  Inside the case was this wonderful pair of purple scissors and a Halloween scissor fob.  Linda and I share the same birthday.  We always send a little something to each other every year.  She sent me the wonderful quick start set. 

When we were at retreat in January several of us were gifted with these neat bowls that Adele made for us.  She filled them with candy hearts, a lip balm and a Hobb Nobb kit.  The candy was eaten, the lip balm was promptly confiscated by my oldest and the kit was put with my stash.  I just love my bowl,

The next two pictures are what I received from my Secret Stitcher.  She sent me the below goodies in a wonderful glass jar.  What wonderful treats and the votive made everything smell soooo good.  I have never tried the brand of needles or the silk threads so I am very excited to try both.  The glass jar will be great for orts. 

Thanks for letting me share.

Super Bowl Sunday

I have lots of things to share, but will leave that for another day when I have more time to make a longer post. 

I did want to share my favorite commercial from the Super Bowl.  I am sure it was a favorite of all.  My girls and I love the song by LMFAO anyway, but add a red M&M to it and you have a winner!

I also put $4.00 in for two squares on the office football pool.  It is very rare that I ever win anything.  Guess what...I won $40.00 in the first quarter and another $40.00 in the second quarter.  I am sure you could hear my hubby whooping it up across town when I won.  Now to decide if I want to stash shop or save my money until the monthly Antique Mart in Lawrenceburg, IN opens back up for the season in May.  Did you ever think it would be that hard to decided what to do with $80.00???

Be back soon.
