Thank You Laurie!!


Laurie from Bargain Hunting with Laurie sent me the sweetest "Thank You" gift for "letting" her post our home on her Share a Space Saturday a couple of months ago. I told her I should be sending HER a thank you gift for honoring us...but it just goes to show what a sweetheart she is! I met Laurie over at RMS where we had an instant connection. She is a caring and compassionate person...and also very FUNNY!! I just love her! :-)

Inside the beautifully wrapped box was the prettiest heart ornament I had ever seen! I was so excited that before I unwrapped the next gift I went running around my home to find the perfect stand for it!


Oh it's so pretty!!

Then I unwrapped the cutest dog figurine that looks exactly like my chocolate lab, Elmo! Dh likes him too! :-)

And the sweetest little bird! I wonder if Laurie knew I had a "thing" for birds?? :-)

Thank you Laurie! For the sweet gifts, the beautiful card and for your friendship that I will cherish forever!!!


I am officially out on Spring Break!! Woohoo! We're heading for the lake for a week to get a little R & R!! I hope you all have a wonderful week! :-)

Laura
