Retail Therapy

3.31.2012

With all that has been going on in our lives this past week I sure am glad I had ordered something on line from an etsy shop. I was reading a blog the other day, cannot remember which one, and they had linked to Faded Plains etsy shop, so of course I had to take a look.

Yesterday when we got home from the surgeon's office I had a package waiting on the front porch. Don't you love when that happens. I pulled it out of the outer envelope and all this was inside. All the things on top were extra goodies that were thrown in.

Andrea was so thoughtful to send along these extras. She didn't know how much I needed something pretty in my life.

I just love the K.



This is a vintage book page that was in the mix.

Same book page flipped over.





Then I opened the package under all the extras and this is what I ordered. Beautiful pillow cover made from this gorgeous fabric. Now you will have to wait till later to see where it goes.

Thanks to Andrea for the extra added touches to the packaging and very quick shipment.

Hubby's surgery went very well. I came back to the house to take miss Bailey potty and there was another big box on the porch. Yippee. Yes, love some retail therapy.

Thanks so much for all the thoughts and prayers sent our way from y'all. We both truly appreciate your kindness.

  21. That is a very pretty pillow cover! Seems like those items came just in time when you needed them. That's always a good feeling to have something you ordered waiting at the front door! Hope your weekend goes well taking care of your new patient. My patient, Cody, is getting better. His test results came back negative. Looks like a run of the mill infection of some sort. Have a great weekend!
