Is This Cute Or What!

I have been in a blogger sway for a couple of months now and I am terrible at taking pictures of my gifts, so I am turning over a new leaf and going to try and snap the cute things that arrive at my door step! This is from Michele over at Country Vintage and she did soooooooooooo good. The too cute little pumpkin candle holders, the two finger towels on each side of the basket with the oven mitt in the middle... there is the black fan pull right in the center that I have hung in my bedroom . I never could reach that fan pull until now .. and that black is pretty sexy in my bedroom (blush). There is a little pumpkin ornie in the middle of the picture and a pumpkin candle right in the front! There was a candy bar in there somewhere but it never made it to the picture. Both my son and hubby were standing by........ does that tell you anything?
This box has a bit of a history... It had the wrong county road on the address and it went to some sweet lady here in town. She does not know me, but Michele had her phone number on the return address. This sweet lady called Michele and inquired as to who this box belonged to....... Now I do not know about you but I do not believe that would have been the case with too many people. I am sorry to say that honesty in this world today is a rare thing. My son being in law enforcement took the wrong address and found her house and then found her small beauty shop here in town. She was very kind says my son and was happy that it was going to come to the right home. Soooooooooooo this is what I am going to do........ Make her something and take to her......... that is the thing to do...... Give and it shall be given......... I will take a picture of some things that I am doing and will show you I hope tomorrow.......... soooooooooo take a look at this sweet box of goodies and have a great week!

Denise,

It is all very cute and I'm glad that lady phoned Michele to see where the package belongs. Yes, do make her something and take it to her and try to get photos. lol

Such lovely gifts, a son in law enforcement, an honest lady and a wonderful lady who was the recipient. A great combination.

God bless,
Mary

How wonderful to receive the double blessing of the gift, along with the kind stranger making sure the gift gets to you. Enjoy.

Thank you for your kind words about my post. I do feel so blessed to have the parents I've been given. I know that others cannot voice the same; thus, I am so thankful for the perfect Father who loves us all the way home, without fault or blemish.

He is the standard-bearer. All others will fail from time to time.

How wonderful that this lady had the honesty in her heart and the gumption of follow through. I would definitely make her something that she could decorate her shop with...sad to say, honesty should be rewarded these days... My prayers for your son. I'm retired from our Sheriff's Dept so I know all his job entails...even the things he won't tell you...

C U T E!!!! I love Fall decorations.

Time for me to add Thanksgiving to mine. That calls for a trip to the attic today before it turns cold? (cooler!) I'm ready for Fall weather.

Isn't it so much fun to receive such goodies in the mail instead of bills? lol I'm so glad the parcel finally found its way to you...as you say, there aren't many honest people left in this world. I once found a wallet with lots of money in it...I found the man's driver's license in it, checked the phone book for his number and called him to say I had found his wallet. When he got here, he seemed shocked to look inside and see that all the money was still in there. He wanted to give me $20 but I refused...I told him I was just being honest like my mama had taught me:-) xoxo
