Well, I never made it to Michael's yesterday. Maybe today. Who knows. It's pouring out so maybe there would be less crowds.

I was standing in the kitchen yesterday morning, still in my bathrobe, when there was a knock on the door. To my surprise, it was my neighbor, Kathy, who brought me coffee and a muffin for my birthday! So sweet! The reason she brought it is because we're birthday twins! (Except I'm older!) What are the odds of that?

I also received a wonderful package through the mail yesterday - something I had won on Ebay. Months ago, on Marble Rose's blog, she showed us her darling money box she had picked up. I fell in love with it and immediately put in a search on Ebay for one. The outlook was dismal - nothing . . . nothing . . . nothing . . . then, finally, two weeks ago - bingo! And I won! I'm so very happy! Here it is -
And it even has the key! Who wouldn't fall in love with this cutie?

Have a good Saturday!

That money box is too cute. I've never seen anything like it. Hope you make it to Michael's today.

That money box is so cute! If you wait long enough, it seems you can find anything on Ebay!
When you finally get to Michaels, look for the little paper mache houses that I used. Hopefully they'll have them again this year.
Have a great weekend!

Ooh coffee and a muffin. Oh mine you have really been doing something right. Dunkin doughnuts besides. Yummy! You go girl.

Now I have never seen a little money box before. What did you google? I would so love to start searching for one. It would be perfect for someone on my Christmas list. Was it real expensive?

Stop by soon.
Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

A belated birthday wish. I would love to have that little money box. I thought you always had to buy on Ebay and not win. I am happy for you.
