Another Package in the Mail and Whatcha Workin On Wednesday?

Just before I left for mom's I received a package...
I was expecting little watermelon slices...
but what's this?
Something is looking at me!

Just so neatly wrapped in pattern tissue
and tied with strips of calico...
I think I might have actually 'squealed' with delight!!
Brenda sent a surprise...
and I think it's just perfect!
But there was more...
Cute...cute strawberries and watermelon slices...
A whole basket full.
Thank you, Brenda.
I love them.

Brenda is in the midst of moving, so her Etsy shop is on vacation mode...
but please stop over at her blog, The Rusty Thimble and sign up for her latest giveaway.


I can't believe a whole week has passed since my last blog post...
plus, I'm way behind on blog reading and blog commenting. 
I am looking forward to seeing what everyone has been up to.

Hubby has a big birthday next week so I have been very busy with party preparations.
Hopefully, I'll have some pictures to share this weekend.

Take care,
~Natalie

The jack-o-lantern brought a smile to my face. Fall is just a few weeks away and I'm so looking forward to it. The strawberries and watermelon remind me of some of Summer's best things.

Lucky, lucky, lucky girl! I just love them! The pumpkin is a perfect little guy. When will you start to put fall up? I think I am always too early, but I can't help myself. Not quite yet, but September is almost here. YAY! I will post pics. Have a great start to your school year. God Bless you and all the teachers for what you do.
Hugs, Kathy

Such lovely treats to get in the mail, Natalie! How clever, and generous Brenda is to have sent you these. I have my thinking cap on at the moment...it's definitely time I had a giveaway, but whatever shall I choose?

I love your comment on my blog about bringing the nice things we have out to use instead of saving them. It seems to be an ingrained Old Country thing, passed on from my Mum and my Gran, but I'm getting better about it. Thanks for the reminder...:)
