Monday Mail Call: A Giveaway Prize & My Secret Sister Swap ~ Plus What Happened to the Weekend

Doesn't this just make you smile?
I won this sweet 'forever' bouquet of flowers from 
Stop over and say hi...she has a blog,
This will be just so cute on my desk.
Thank you, Vicky.

Secret Sister Swap
We might need a bigger mailbox...
This envelope was stuffed full of all these goodies from my secret sister...
Thank you...you are the best!!
Notepad, notecards and patterns...
Sweet little calico fabrics...
and magazines for my leisure...
(which by the way, is coming to an end in just 10 days)
And cute, cute handmades...
Thank you for everything.

and finally...What happened to the weekend?
We didn't take any before pictures...
but, this was our shop.
There are two refrigerators to the left,
plus I have one of those pattern file cabinets like the fabric store...

Anyway, everything from the shop went out to the patio, 
so we could clean into the corners.

This is now storage, 
and part of the garage is now the shop...

More photos later...

But all of this organization is just making me happy!


Take care,
~Natalie

You got some really great treasures! I don't think I could pick a favorite!

Cleaning and organizing can be such a pain, but are so worth it when you have the space back in order.

Enjoy your last 10 days of summer!!

Congrats on your win. It looks so nice on the desk. Nothing like sunflowers to perk up the place.
Love the swap goodies you got too.

I so envy you, Natalie! We have a storage room a tad smaller than this that is NOT being utilized in it's best way due to my husband's collection of 'mish mash'....I hate calling it hoarding!! HA!! Thanks for the free advertisement! I'm glad you like your crow and sunflowers. I enjoyed making them!!!

Such a cute bouquet of flowers -- so fallish and fun! This week I cleaned out a huge closet filled with camping gear that we never use anymore. It felt so good to give it all away to people that would use it!
