Heaven has a new Angel

One of my dearest friends that I have online passed away suddenly on Thanksgiving of a heart attack. I am so saddened by this loss! Linda was also our team leader our our Etsy forum "Old Farmhouse Gathering". She will be greatly missed by all. I know I miss her already.

My order from Shari!!

Good Monday afternoon!! Not much has been going on around here the last week. Visited GW, nothing! I go into Omaha tomorrow for an Echo and then lunch with a friend. After that, I may go to the Salvation Army store that is in the area I will be in. I always have luck there. Just don't go very often cuz it is a bit of a drive. But since I'll be in the!!

I wanted to show you all the items that I ordered from Shari and received last week. Just click on her name to go to her site. She has some awesome stuff and it is all very well made!!



Whale tail shelf

small doughboard

Bowl rack

This smells so awesome!!

I just love her stuff!!

Well I hope everyone has a great week, I may be back after my visit to the thrift store with pictures!!
