Hello everyone :) I hope you all had a lovely Halloween. I had a fun filled though tiring week with my beautiful Grandson. He is a very happy little lad and has just started to crawl wow crawling babies sure are fast lol. I just got home in time to get my treats ready before the children called. I am sad to say not very many children called a lot less than last year. All the grandchildren called though to show me their cool costumes :D I remember mine had a witches hat and a black bag as a dress lol or old clothes as tramps or clowns. Well its over now for another year.
I can not say it enough how wonderful people are here in blogland I have made so many fantastic friends one of them is the wonderful Julia  I have admired her beautiful creations ever since I found her blog  especially her cushions so when she asked me if I would like some for my shop I am sure she heard me yell YES all the way to Spain lol. She also had made a wonderful plate holder and asked if I would like it I was over the moon :)  We decided to do a swap. These are the wonderful gifts that I received.
Wonderful shabby  plate holder isn't it so pretty.

All these wonderful items on top I love the little cakes. The candle and holder are beautiful and the little jar filled with cookies even a little key :)

And of course my precious cushions. Look how beautiful they are. They are perfect for my shop.

Even the wonderful box they arrived in is a treasure. the plates are a fantastic extra bonus I love the one with little cupcakes on it.

Anyone that Knows Julia knows that she has a heart of gold and I am very happy to have her friendship the best gift of all. Thank you so much Julia for these wonderful treasures I love each and every one. If you don't know her blog I suggest you get over there fast :) also if you want to see what I sent to Julia as I (again) forgot to take pictures :D  
I have a little more to do in my shop as I got another set of shelves for it and have to fill them. I hope to show the finished room soon. 
A big Thank You to all that leave me so many loving and encouraging comments and all that visit my blog. I am so very lucky to have met you all.
A Big Hug to all my Friends.
