Fun Friday Package

The first thing I did after work and the grocery store was check the mail.  I was surprised to find a package inside addressed to me.  I wasn't expecting this so soon but what a fun way to start the weekend.  First I had to "explain" to our dog that a walk in the pouring rain was not going to happen.  Then I usually feed the cat who follows me around until I do.  Of course the package was distracting me from my normal routine so here is what happened when I put the package on the table so that I could open it.

Our cat Lily is sniffing the package.
She says "Hey that has nothing to do with feeding me"

Now she is heading toward her dish to see if I have done my one important job.

Sorry Lily, she did end up waiting just a few more minutes.

 This lovely pillow was inside my package.  This pillow was made by Doni at Faith, Grace and Crafts.  I won this in her giveaway and I think is is just beautiful.

The roses down the sides were crocheted by Doni.

Doni has an Etsy shop here, with several of her creations.

I am happy to have one of Doni's vintage pillows here in my home.
Thank You Doni!

I also wanted to share another something special I won when Kathy at Creative Home Expressions had several 500 Blog Posts Celebration Giveaways in December.

I won the first giveaway which was from Tara at 
She has an online shop called Printed Memories and this is what she created for me.  She sent me this right to my email and we printed it onto card stock. 

Tara gave us two options and we chose to frame the one that was not centered.  The pictures don't show how nice it looks so take a look at her shop to see what else she does.

I have received so many wonderful things through swaps and giveaways from some very nice people I have "met" through blogging. 
Have a wonderful weekend!
