I Have the BEST Friends!

I definitely have the best friends in the world!  Friends who know me and know what "floats my boat".  I received two packages in the last few days that just thrilled me to pieces.
The first is from my dear friend Linda Jean.  She and Gary went to a sale and she saw this whole stack of vintage linens and doilies and she bought them for me!!  She mailed them all the way from Maine where they stay in a sweet little cabin on the water in the summertime.
She's also the sweet person who found all of my vintage feed sacks and sent to me.
Thank you Linda & Gary for thinking of me!
And then, what thrills me to the bone other than vintage linens - you're right, vintage buttons!
My dear friend Kris in LA found these and sent them to me.  She said she was sending me a package and to be careful opening it.  It made me a little anxious because she is what you would call a prankster. 
When it arrived, I could not figure out what it was - it was a 5# box of old buttons!  WOW!!
Thank you Shelli & Kris for the buttons.  Shelli & Kris are both going on the Alaskan cruise with my sister and I.  We are going to have so much fun!!
Friends are such precious possessions.  That these friends knew how absolutely nuts I would go over these items just thrills me!
Thank you again!
Till next time, Judy


  1. How awesome is this! I love the old linens and doilies, so beautiful!
    Have fun with all those fun buttons Judy!

  2. You certainly do have good friends!!! can't wait to see what you do with all those buttons... :)

  3. You do have good friends but you are such a good friend to others.

  4. Those are awesome gifts! Charlie is doing fine. Sometimes he will start panting and that is frightening because they told me to watch for that. But just when I decide to take him to the vet, he quits and starts chasing the squirrel. I'm sure I'm hyper-vigilant. Hope you have fun on your trip!
