Happy Mail Day! Heart Swap arrived

I went to take the fur-babies out for the afternoon potty break and discovered that the mail lady had left a package at my front door! It arrived from Cummings, GA and my swap partner Donna Harris!!
OMG!!!! Did I ever get spoiled! She must have back read my blog and discovered that I am an Americana collector and lover of the Red, White, and Blue! She must have also discovered that I am totally and hopelessly in love with the three cutest fur-babies ever, Bella, Sarge, and Cocoa Puff!! My package included a vintage dachshund figurine that I also collect, a box of dachshund theme valentine card kit, a handmade heart that is just prim perfect, two metal stars that I also love, a frame stitched heart tree, a valentine hand towel, a flag ornie, a red pip berry candle ring, a container of cupcake sprinkles, a package of scented tarts for my tart warmers, a handmade Valentine card with a vintage valentine on it (I also collect vintage valentines), a cute sticker page of a vintage paper doll and her clothes all in a valentine theme, a pack of Reese Peanut Butter cups, and a bag full of handmade valentine cookies. Thank you so much Donna! I was feeling kinda down today! My back and legs are giving me a fit in all of this cold weather! I am determined to continue to stay clear of the narcotic pain meds, so just taking muscle relaxers and advil! If you don't mind keep me in your prayers that the pain will go away! Pictures are below so you can see my goodies. Donna, your package will be postal on Monday!

Thank you Donna for all the wonderful goodies! You spoiled me! Hugs!

 The pictures below show what we woke up to on Wednesday morning after the first snow of 2014 in Conover, NC!! It was just beautiful and super cold 10 degrees!

 Do you see the little cross and the small tree at the front of the picture? That is the grave site where our beloved Hershey, Deacon, Baby, and Pebbles are all buried. Hubby put white stones and the cross on there when we loss Hershey in 2004! It is a memorial to them and how much we loved them. Pebbles would have been 15 years old yesterday! I cried almost all day! I still miss her so much! It will be one year on 2/25/2014 that she left us. Rest in Peace babies and we will see you again one day!

I'm so glad that you liked everything and it was a lot of fun putting it all together for you. I told you as soon as I saw that sweet little face on the vintage figurine that he was gonna have a wonderful new home. He's just so cute! Enjoy everything my new friend and I look forward to seeing more of your fur babies pictures.
