~My Old Fashioned Giveaway from Julie~

Seems like I’m posting a lot these days and that’s because I’m working a lot.LOL I know if I don’t post before I go to work I’ll never post, anyway I’m off tomorrow and the vacuuming can wait till then!


I recently received my Old Fashioned giveaway from Julie from Country Girl at Heart such a sweetheart she is! Look how Christmasy her wrapping was! Her sewing is superb and I’m always amazed at all you prim girls that can do it, such talent out there. Now here are pictures of what she sent me all the way from Utah!

I love this Christmas table runner, Julie picked such neat fabric to use on the gifts that she sent, I really enjoyed this:)



Look at the pointed edge of the runner…just love it and the Utah Truffle mint candy bar she also sent me, can’t wait to get into that!


I wish this picture would have turned out better…it’s a wall hanging that Julie made and on it the wording is so cute, Welcome… Inside Cozy… Outside Frozy isn’t it the sweetest saying? The border around it is of course snowmen!!!


This is the back side, I just love all the tiny mittens~


Julie also included some great smelling tarts the box smelled heavenly when I opened it I can’t wait to use them:)


Okay...I forgot to add this sweet pillow that Julie also made me and I had to go into blogger and mess with Html, now I know why I love live writer so much:) Anyway the fabric is the cutest snowmen with a black backing. I don't know if I'll keep it here on this old, wooden box I may move it around some:)

Love the electric candle that Julie did in Christmas fabric with the rusty jingle bell at the bottom!


Isn’t this the sweetest little stocking? I love the cuff on it, I have it on my little tree in the keeping room:)


This ornament is so special to me…a wood donkey with a wonderful saying printed on the card!


I hope you can enlarge the picture so that you can read it, it puts things in perspective, I’ll see if it does enlarge after I publish this post:)


Julie sent me one other thing but I have an idea for it and when I get it done I’ll post it…Thanks so much Julie, I love everything♥



I had to show you my winning from eBay it’s the second prairie bonnet from the left. It is a black and crème check and 26” long… also coffee dyed with tiny little holes in it…I just love it! I hope to fill in the rest of the pegs with them, only three more to go!!!


I’d also like to welcome some new friends and wish you all a Merry Christmas, thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and visit♥

    I have to thank you ... because of you, I've figured out how to use Livewriter and I didn't even have to buy your son to teach me how to do it! It really is so much easier to use than the one that the blogger gives us. Thanks Rondell!
