Swap goodies from The Rusty Thimble

Good morning everyone...Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.We had a nice dinner with hubby's family.My sweet SIL bought me the cutest snowman but I'll have to show you once I get finished decorating.I tried hard to get it done on friday but we have had high 50's and 60's temps so I just haven't been in the christmas mood yet.The good thing is I got a market in with the warm weather...It's supposed to be cooler after tuesday down to the 40's so I'll pull the tree down then.Wanted to stop in and thank Brenda for the wonderful swap goodies she sent.. The snowman make do is my favorite! Sweet gingers....

The santa has already found a home and is trying hard to get me motivated for christmas..Oh and the sweet black prairie doll.I love black dolls...Everything was handmade by Brenda..


Thanks so much Brenda.I loved everything you sent.Just wonderful! Well tomorrow is my birthday.I tell the girls 29 and holding but they are starting to not believe me.LoL. They don't understand how you can be the same age every year..I don't go all out anymore. Anyone who knows me knows I'm more into my house than designer clothes and such but I really wanted a pair of Ugg boots but could not bring myself to pay $150 for shoes.Yikes! Well I found some at a unbelievable price so I checked the box inside,outside and compared them to others to make sure they were not knockoffs.They were the real deal so I tried them on Pure Heaven soooo soft.The man even gave me a little extra off.I didn't have enough so I gave him my money told him to hold them and found hubby told him to get over there.So now I have my Uggs gonna were them out today even though it's not cold.They are supposed to adjust to the weather since they are lined with sherpa.Well girls I've got another busy week ahead but have a few things and thank you's to catch up on so I'll be on later this week.Warm Blessings!~Amy

Good morning sweet Amy and Happy Birthday to you!!!
Your swap goodies from Brenda sure are cute. And those boots, good for you, I've been wanting a pair myself but can't justify the price so I'm hoping to find a deal too.
It's been very cold here, 19 this morning, 15 yesterday! Hopefully I'll get our house decorated by the end of the week.
Hugz to you birthday girl!

Great swap goodies, GF!
I love the black prairie doll.....
I told my granddaughter (Mallory ) she could give me her Uggs when she is tired of them. Since she asked for a new pair for Christmas, I just might get them! LolHave a great week!

Happy Birthday Amy stay 29 !! As my soon to be 90 year old mom says when someone asks her age *I am so 89 years young LOL* It is good for the soul and mind to think of yourself as still younger then you are!!

so happy you are pleased with your swap goodies I sent.

Hugs
Brenda

I adore your swap treasures from Brenda - she does such amazing things - she's like a one-woman Santa's workshop, I swear. Gotta say that black prairie doll is my favorite of the bunch. Congrats on the Uggs - I've been wanting some too - but can't justify the cost at this point. Boo Hoo. I can't get by with 29 anymore - so when I hit 50, I decided I'd have birthdays in reverse (every year I get a year younger....so one day, hopefully, I WILL be 29 again!) ;o) Hope your birthday is full of treasured moments....Smiles & Birthday Hugs ~ Robin

Happy Birthday! (A day early) Glad that you got what you wanted for your birthday at a great price. I hear you about the price of those boots. My daughter has a pair- but she's a teenager with lots of babysitting $$ to blow! I have a $60.00 knock off pair by Alpine & really like them. ~Ann
