Give away from Sandi.....Six things about me....a busy summer....

The first thing I saw when I opened my package...and
I am certainly enjoying every delightful surprise.......


Back in June I was delighted to win Sandi's giveaway...
We were out of pocket for several days so I'm just now showing the beautiful items contained in my package.....do visit Sandi...she has a gorgeous blog and you will certainly enjoy all the interesting posts....The theme of my 'win' was birds....vintage sewing things...name tags....

Beautiful laces, bias tape, vintage buttons...
Beautiful bird name tags....and a sweet note from Sandi
A package of nest of eggs napkins...
Gorgeous egg soap.......

Many thanks to you Sandi for making my day.....
My pictures don't do justice....I'm sure it's me and not the new camera.

Along about the same time a fellow blogger, Betty, asked me to tell Six Things About Myself .....I've done this previously but it has been quite awhile back so here goes....

1. Most importantly, I strive to live each day to glorify my Savior. Many days I feel that I've been a failure but each new day brings new opportunities and a new beginning.

2. I took Karate many years ago and enjoyed it immensely.

3. Out of my five siblings four have died of cancer, the fifth is in remission and my mother died of cancer also...

4. I do not eat eggs...I cook with them but I don't eat eggs as eggs...

5. I have never flown in an airplane...my husband traveled and each time I would decide to accompany him just prior to our leaving there would be a plane crash .....I hope Edward and I will visit our friends in Wales sometime in the future...

6. I began playing the piano in church when I was about 12 years old...music is manna to my soul...

An one extra:

My touchstone is to gaze up into the blue sky with the fluffy white clouds each day...that re-assures me of my Heavenly Father and that He loves me...and you.....

I am not tagging anyone in particular so feel free to participate...please leave a comment if you do so I can learn more about YOU.......

We've had a busy summer as all of you have I'm sure. Sorry I've been so slack in posting the past months. I hope to do better.

What a gift! I enjoyed the pictures so much. I'm not crazy about "eggs as eggs," either. Thanks for sharing. C

Betty,

What beautiful gifts. I'm so glad you won the giveaway.

I enjoyed the six things about you. It helps me to know you a little better.

Summer has been a busy time for us too. We've been trying to get this place in shape.

Take care, my friend. Hope Edward is doing well.

Blessings,
Mary

Congrats on your lovely win - what a great vignette of vintage items -so pretty!
I too have been "slack" in posting due to the various, yet not blog worthy summer activities!
Congrats on your 49th Anniversary -I enjoyed the pics and your story of your wedding day.
