Simple Ramblings From A Prim Cottage

Sweet gifts from Lecia

 Oh my it's been a hectic week.Had to drive to the city twice for appointments.Got the usual lecture about not staring but it's hard.For one I'm a people watcher and two everything is so differnt from our small town.I do gotta say I would never want to live in the city and I feel sorry for so many of those people mainly the children.I did decide to lock the door when going down through the rougher area's.Don't have to go back till after christmas..Also had a million and one other things,plus all the normal holiday rush....My sweet friend Lecia farmhouse prims and I recently did a swap.She told me when she mailed it ,but it deceided to take a slight detour.So I was stalking the poor mailman like a kid waiting for santa.LoL.Well worth the wait...Beautiful prairie bonnet,I have many of these that I have purchased from her but this one is a differnt style...I adore black dolls this one has a special stitchery and flicker candle...
 I am addicted to yummy smelling liquid hand soap she sent Gingerbread and a yummy tart in gingerbread as well..I love gooseberry patch books and have been looking for this title for awhile.Did you know Lecia is published in several of the gooseberry patch books? Yep she's famous..smile...She also sent one of her wonderful snowman hats.Lecia was so thoughtful of what I would love and made our swap very special..
She was one of my first blogging friends and has become such a special caring person in my life.I'm so glad to know her.I'm jealous of my SIL because she lives around the corner and can visit with Lecia.LoL.I'm hopeful we can talk hubby into traveling down for the crawl this summer and then I can visit in person.Stop over Lecia's blog to see the goodies I sent her.Plan to catch up on the Merriment Chain today or tomorrow.I've been visiting everyone just not much time to comment.Hopefully this week will be slow and lots of time enjoying the fun things of the season.Warm Blessings!~Amy

...Oh my, an early "Merry Christmas" to you, yes? What a sight that must've been of your face upon opening up that package - I imagine the look of a child on Christmas morn'. ;o)

...I too lock my car doors and I do so no matter where I go. One cannot be too careful in this day and age.

...You mentioned "appointments" and I'm hoping it wasn't for an illness or anything like it. Hope all is well for you and your family. :o)

...Have a lovely Sunday!

...Blessings :o)

Lecia is a great swapper--but so are you! Sounds like you are both pleased.
I know exactly how you feel in the big city. I really, really prefer our smaller, slower life here in the sticks! LOL
Sending prayers and best wishes your way.
Merry Christmas, my friend.
May 2013 bring all the joy and contentment your heart seeks....
