A Quickie!

I am so forgetful lately!! I was in a rush yesterday when I did my post I forgot to upload the other pressie from Annie. Sorry Annie they did arrive in one piece or actually two pieces a lovely cup and saucer. So everyone knows I have senior moments now!!!




Now then the excitement continued with the arrival of the postie with another intriguing package. Great stamps...



Yes its my giveaway from Sandi at "Holding Patterns" all the way from USA. Now I see it in person I see exactly what you mean by garden flag.
Thank you so much Sandi. When it is in the garden I will send a pic showing you what it looks like. Sophie, who has been to Canada, says these are very popular there as well as in USA. It will be unique around these parts though.
Well i must away as I am doing the pancake thing for everyone tonight even though Soph thought she had a better offer! I got a late evening text from her last night saying that offer had fallen though. Had a row??? So its pancakes for 4 tonight! Once again many thanks to Sandi and Annie for their gifts .

I am finally back, and what fun catching up, I have never seen garden flags and we must ask Sandi to do a post on them.

Hi Mary,
Garden flags? I'm also curious about these but they sound like fun. Anything to be different as far as I am concerned.
Take care,
Sandi x

Hi Mary,
What a pretty cup and saucer. I would have had kittens sending it in the post. LOL
The garden flag is a great idea. We have Christmas ones which are usually made of plywood and have Santa on with words like, "Santa please stop here" But general Welcome ones are a lovely addition.

You were very lucky winning Annie's giveaway, isn't everything just gorgeous? I love her cats.

The cup an saucer are just beautiful! How lucky for you that they arrived in one piece (or two pieces, as you say!).

Love it! What a cool idea. Not being a great gardener (you mean that's a weed?)I love putting anything colourful out in the garden. I shall be driving up and down the roads in Liverpool looking out for it (but if you email me your address you could save me a lot of petrol!)

Sandi McBride said...

Just wanted to stop by and wish you Happy Valentine's Day...put the tea on, I think I may stay awhile!
hugs

Sandi McBride said...

Just checking in on you Mary...and checking in on Sarah...love her blog and not just because Everything stops for tea is the title, lol...though it does, doesn't it?
hugs
Sandi

Sandi McBride said...

Okay, I take it you're busy trying to find just the right spot for the teacup and saucer and the garden flag. Is that why no recent posting? Okay, I'll quit nagging now. Just checking!
hugs

What lovely pressies you have been receiving Mary!

Thanks for your best wished regarding the poetry - still struggling through - difficult, but fun! xxx

Country Cottage Chic said...

you received TWO giveaways? Lucky Mary!

Sandi McBride said...

I've just told Sarah she must have a cup of tea in hand, because we've heard nothing since the 20th and then there's you...the FIFTH OF FEBRUARY BY GLORY!!!

It just dawned on me, it was Mother's Day a couple of Sunday's back...how did you spend your day and where did you eat? Don't tell me you cooked, I won't be happy!
I'll be back in later to see if you have posted any news...
