I just LOVE my mailbox!

Especially when there is a box in there with these!

Cathy over at Home Sweet Home, Noble had a giveaway a while back, and I couldn't believe I WON!!!!!

I've admired these pincushions for so long, but never in my wildest dreams did I think they would be so nicely done like this. Her work is outstanding, and just beautiful!

I feel so privileged to have these three pincushions. Thank you, Cathy!!!!!! I will treasure them forever and ever!!!!!

I love my mailbox too Cora, except when I find nothing but bills. It's funny how finding a magazine in there can just brighten your day. I love what you found, the pin cushions are beautiful. Deb

Debra said...

Dear Cora,
Your blog is wonderful! I can't find the words I want to say how you've reminded me of some important things-I've been hearing "faith" all day from the radio, my reading, hearing it in my head...and then reading YOU. Thank you so much. Shortly after I woke up this morning, you were in my prayers. I think it's a fine place to be, don't you? Love, Debra

Oh my gosh! They look just like the white cymling squash I wrote about today!!

Renna said...

They are adorable!

I'm so glad you won, Cora. You're always telling us all about neat contests (one of which I won!), and in turn we find out about the neat blogs having them. You deserve to win. :-)

Thank you, Cora!! for your very sweet words. I was so happy to hear that you received the pincushions, and that you love them!! Next time I'll have to remember to send something for Buster :)!!

How cute are those???? Lucky you!

Lea of Farmhouse*Blessings said...

I couldn't be happier if I had won them myself, my friend! Has Buster been "eyeing" them yet? LOL


Cora from Nelia's Primitive Place said...

Lea, yes, Buster thought they were for HIM!!!! He was VERY disappointed, to say the least! I've had to hide them, as he searched the box, the table, everywhere for them!!!!! but then again, Buster thinks EVERYTHING is HIS!

Katy said...

Congrats on winning! Those pincushions are simply perfect. I am so glad you are the recipient.

So sorry about your meal not coming out. I can't use canned soup - too salty for me and then add the bacon - it would overwhelm me too. Too bad you can rinse it off and then doctor it up with something less salty. I bet Buster is happy though!

hugs, Linda
