Hi, everyone. I hope you're all having a great week so far. We only got a little dusting of snow over the weekend here, but my hometown got about 9 inches! I've been enjoying the pictures my friends have posted on Facebook. Oh, how I miss the mountains!
We were out of school yesterday for Presidents' Day. It's nice to have a day off here and there. We made a big breakfast and just enjoyed being home and not having to go anywhere! Now for those of you who already bake your bacon, please do not laugh at me, but this is a new discovery for me! My goodness, I very much dislike standing over a frying pan turning bacon and getting popped with grease! The microwave isn't much better. For those of you who may not know about bakin' your bacon, this is all you have to do - line a couple of cookie sheets (be sure they have sides) with aluminum foil, then lay out the bacon, making sure it doesn't overlap. Put it in a cold oven, turn the oven on about 400°. After about 12-15 minutes, come back to check on it. It should be about done by then. Be very careful taking it out of the oven because there will be a lot of grease! You may have to adjust your temperature and timing depending on your oven. Now, isn't that easy? :)
I have been blessed to win a few more giveaways recently, and thought I'd show you what I won.
First, I won this beautiful stitchery from Dani at Sweet Home Stitchery. Those little sheep are just too cute. That's a lot of stitches! She did a great job on it, and she has her own etsy shop, so stop by and visit! :)
Such a sweet little tag.
She also sent me this bookmark and cross pin. I put the pin on the front of my Bible case so I know which side is the front.
Thank you, Dani. I will enjoy my gifts. :)
My second win was this sweet bread board from Willa at The Old Cupboard Door. I really like it. She did a beautiful job painting it, and she even added a star cookie cutter and a jingle bell. She also has her own shop. I'm sure she'd love to have you stop by. Thank you so much, Willa!
My third win came from Cyn at Cynzplace. This is a beautiful embroidered heart...such pretty stitching! I really like the cheesecloth ruffle and buttons too.
She also included this sweet handmade bookmark! I love to read, and it seems I'm always looking for a bookmark. Thank you, Cyn! She also has her own etsy shop, so please stop by and visit her too.
My last win was from Nancy at the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe. I won some rosewood buttons! Please stop by her shop and see all the things she has for sale. She has a lot of giveaways, and I'm sure she'd love for you to enter. Thank you, Nancy!
I'm enjoying all my beautiful items. Many thanks to all of you talented ladies!
I hope you enjoy the rest of your week. Thanks for stopping by. :)
