Woooooooo hooooooooooooooo clap Yesterday I got a box from Lynne kissie& Today I got a box from My sister , Glenda kissie for Early birthday,, ( Rushing me to get older I think) touched lol lol

Lynne Knitted me the softest Beautiful scarf I have ever seen,, I put it against a lot of different backgrounds to pull the color thru on camera BUt it still doesn't justify how it really looks!! It reminds me of a babbeling brook, I believe she said it is Pebble Yarn,, it is extra long and wide just like I like scarfs and you can't buy them like this on the width and length!! Lynne Thank you sooo very much! Now I'm Out scouting stores for a 3 quarters length Denim coat or the right shade Blue wool coat to compliment the scarf! in the mean time I have a light honey colored car coat/jacket it will look great with!,, I love it!!! grin grin

Lynne also sent me three willys that had comfortably found their spot on a mushroom stock topped with a butterfly, and some gnome gum shock NOooooo they hadn't already chewed it , nooooo it isn't gnomes made of gum,,, IT is gum created by gnomes and made for Human consumption,, Hot cinnamon flavor, (sorry the picture is blurred),, and she sent Ben Taylors CD,, MAnnnnnn He sounds just like his father James Taylor!! shock clap and to top it off a lizard to place outside to brighten up an area!

cotinued from up there ^

Now Glenda's Gift come along with a story in the background! :wink:

Glenda called me one day and while chatting she mentioned a show on the Food Network "Road Tasted" with Paula Deans sons . They travel across America and go try out the foods viewers have written in about from resturants, small business that specialize in a particular food to individuals just starting up a food business of sorts,,,, that people travel long distances , just to buy some,, OR order on line.
She was telling me about when they were in Atlanta, Georgia and visted a Bread shop,, "BreadWinner" that specialize in seasonal Bread,, That particular show was centered around their Bread they call... "Papa Don't Preach".. Which is a Peach Bread,,
I told her then that I had a box full of fresh peaches and I was going to find a reciepe and make my own,,, Long story short my bread didn't turn out all that great egad. Very disapointed I was boohoo I had even mentioned to Jiffy The same story and she found me another reciepe I was going to try it again, thumbup I got too buzy and hadn't had a chance to,,, But,,,,,,,,

Now I don't have to for a while,, Glenda Ordered it for me from the Breadwinner shop! clap clap clap

WOW Diane - that gift from Glenda is fantastic!!! It's presented so nicely in the box, and even looks like it would smell heavenly!!! I applaud you for freezing 2 of the loaves - I'm sure all 3 would be gone here by the end of the week!


I'm so glad my box got to you so quickly - another WOW - I mailed it on Wednesday!
And I'm so glad you like the scarf - I really enjoyed using the yarn, and seeing how it turned out - I really do think it looks exactly like pebbles! I only wish the skeins were larger and more affordable - I would LOVE to have a blanket made out of it!

Isn't that gnome gum the cutest? When Amy and I saw it in a local artsy town early this summer, I just knew I had to get you some!

I hope you have a wonderful birthday my friend!
