Bad Blogger Buddy!

I have been a bad blogger buddy! I have gotten some wonderful items in the last few weeks and have not had the time or gumption to blog about them.
January blahs I guess.
For that I am sorry!Look at this amazing apron I got! My pictures do not do this apron justice!
Shawnee from Shawnee's Tangled Tales and I were in a
swap together and we both love pin ups. This is by far the most beautiful apron I have ever seen! You cannot even tell where the pocket is since the fabric lines up so perfect. The swap was a sweet goodness swap and I mentioned I loved butterscotch haystack cookies. I had not had them in YEARS since before my Grandmother was stricken with Alzheimer's. When I opened my box, there was a tin of these cookies inside (long gone now) and I literally burst into tears at just the smell of them since they reminded me so much of my Grandmother. There were so many other goodies in that box, but I will NEVER forget the amazing feeling I had with those little cookies! Please click on the link above to see all the other items Miss Shawnee sent and let her know I sent you and give her another big THANK YOU from me!

That was the best coffee cake EVER!!! Paula, Bob and I gobbled the lot - and I was a good hostess and friend and let Paula have the biggest slices because, bless her heart, she needs to be comforted as you well know! Thank you and Mom so much - such a thoughtful gift.
Love you. Mary.

Awww, I can relate to the feelings that made you burst out in tears. If only we could go back, just for a few days. If ever there was a time in my life when I really needed someone to hang around with me, just for fun, tuck me into bed, and cook lovely things just for me -- it's now, yet, alas, she is gone. My grandmother, that is. And I'll miss her every day for the rest of my life.

Now, I must have that apron. Seriously. You had your time with it, and it was fun, but now it needs to be mine. Let's swap! I have a couple parakeets you could have, perhaps a dog (on his barkingest days), maybe even a 6 year old. Name it!

All this to say, what a lovely little package of love you got, and your soul received it. Wonderful.

GREAT apron...the memories of the cookies are priceless. I have the same thing...with homemade lemon ice cream...I cry the whole time I am eating it...remembering my Gramma!

I think out January BLAHS will be over next week...we will get our "MOJO" back in February!!! Have a great day!!!

Love,

Kristin

What a fun apron! She did an amazing job of lining up the pocket. It's almost too pretty to cook in!

Were all battling the blahs, Jenny! But we'll all just blah together! Blah- blah- blah! ☺ Glad you had this little swap to cheer and bless you! ♥

Mary said...

What a colorful, vibrant apron! How fun for you to get those goodies and the memories the cookies brought back.

Mary said...

p.s. from Mary
She made the apron - oh wow! And I love the crocheted clutch she made for you. I'm so inspired, I'm gonna try and make one (clutch) for myself....maybe an apron, too ;) That's a sweet little snowflake pin she put on your purse.

Jenny, your apron is gorgeous. So you! I have yet to do a swap; neither of us have, but it sure sounds like fun. The haystacks and your reaction to them is priceless. Boy do I know about missing grandma.
