Do You Want To See…….

……What Is In The Exciting Package I Received In The Mail????!!!!

I joined Amy’s (Bumble Bee Lane Cottage) wonderful swap that she put together.


Amy paired me with  Lecia~ of Farmhouse Prims

click HERE to find her


The picture of everything together didn’t come out very well, it was so blurry. So I tried to get pics of where some of the things ended up.


I received a wonderful box of goodies from her!!!! She is one of the sweetest people that I have met blogging and it was so nice getting to know her. I really enjoyed our emails and learning a little more about her.

Everything she sent was wrapped so nice and had little labels on them. This one said to open last……

So I opened all of the others first……


This adorable Uncle Sam!!!!! Did you know that I love all things Americana??!!! And especially love Uncle Sam items!! Well she made this guy for me. I love him Lecia! She is so talented.


I had asked her for one of her recipes that she had published, as in a recipe card. She bought me one of the cook books that she is in. Gooseberry Patch~ I can’t wait to try the yummy cookies.

I had also mentioned that I had been looking for some kind of pea hen, little primitive bird and this is what she sent!!!! She is so awesome!


The pineapple in this pic was made by Amy. We did a private swap.I love it Amy! Thank you so much. It smells so yummy as well. She is still waiting for me to send her her sign. It will be on its way soon Amy I promise! This has been a crazy busy few weeks. I had a birthday (another year older) this week and other things going on. I will tell you about that later.


Lecia also made me this adorable little prairie chick. So cute!! And she sent the awesome smelling candle as well. One of my favorites!!

And there is more…..


See this prim and proper little Bunny Lady?? She is so well mannered and beautiful! Sitting there so pretty.She has a new Easter dress on and is holding a nice little bundle of sweet Annie. I love the bunny Lecia. She fits right in, like this spot was waiting for her.



She also included one of her famous prairie bonnets!!! My very first bonnet, and such a nice color. I love fabric and different prints. This one looks like a nice reproduction print. She has some of her very well made bonnets for sale if you think that you “need” one! Just go on over to her blog and find her.(click on photo above)

And then there was the nicely wrapped package that she kindly asked me to open last!!!


Isn’t this amazing!!??? She knew that I had wanted one of these hanging geese. I have a couple of other sitting ones, but I had mentioned that I didn’t have the hanging one and would like one. Well she didn’t think that she would be able to make one so she enlisted some help from Jean(Prim Crafts) The two of them are good friends now(I am a little jealous of blog friend relationships, I don’t have anyone near here!!)So anyway…..Jean made this wonderful goose for Lecia to send to me. Thank you both, you are so kind!(I think she sent everything that I mentioned I liked! She wasn’t supposed to do that. She really spoiled me! Thank you so much Lecia!! I love it all!!)




A big thank you to Amy for hosting the swap and to Lecia for all of the wonderful swap goodies and for being such a good friend. I will treasure them all forever.

Thank you all for visiting with me today. Blessings~Sara

Spring has Sprung



Just a few spring changes~


Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful, for beauty is God’s handwriting–a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson







Bunnies everywhere~







A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it.~George Moore













Easter ~ Spring Thyme~  New life…new beginnings…a fresh start!

A Little Green~






Celebrating a little green this weekend and thinking of my Grandpa Fagan and my Mother, where I get these wonderful Irish roots. Grandpa’s parents and grandparents came to this wonderful country from Ireland. Grandpa was always sharing his love of this country with me. He is the one that taught me to respect this country and the flag and to hold my hand over my heart whenever I saw the American Flag pass by. He was so proud to have fought for this country and to be a part of it.


Ma and Dad

st pats day

~An Old Irish Blessing~
May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!

What Do You Wear?



Well we had a busy week, but we are taking the night off. We are going to the Civic Center to see Jerry Seinfeld' in his comedy tour. We saw him on the tonight show last night and it gave us a taste of what’s to come. I just don’t know how he comes up with the basic things in life to make funny, or to think about. lol. I guess it’s those things that we think about, but don’t talk about. So any way….what do you wear to something like that? Do you dress up? It’s not the theater, but you know??!! Do you just dress comfortable??!! I don’t know??!! Such a dilemma.


I did manage to pull a few spring things together. I have my basket full of my spring flowers, now to add them to my door box and crocks.


And I filled my trencher full of Easter goodies from my wonderful blogging friends~


There were more important things to do……….





Oh ….you know!!
