It's a Beautiful, Wonderful Day! Why.....?

I am just SO excited today! First of all, my daughter just walked through the front door, safe and sound. She's home for the holidays from college. She called us a couple of hours ago saying she had just left and it was snowing hard up there. She goes to college up in Bellingham, which is near the Canadian border. She said it was really bad about the first 50 miles she had to drive, but it got better the further south she traveled.

I'm also excited because now it's snowing here! I know, I know...not too exciting for many of you all who get it all the time, or for those of you who hate the snow. But I absolutely LOVE the snow and now that everyone's home safe and sound, it can snow all it wants! LOL!

And the third reason I am SO excited is


Yes, I won Lynn's wonderful giveaway over at

Painting Thyme Needfuls!

OMG! There are so many wonderful goodies...I just can't wait to get the box. Just when I thought I was all finished decorating, woohoo...I get to decorate more! I just LOVE Lynn's blog. She is such a talented lady and I love seeing the things she makes and the way she decorates her home. I have always been so envious of her beautiful home! If you haven't already, you've just GOT to check out her wonderful blog!

Now that my daughter is home, hopefully I can get her to take a few pictures for me so I can post on here. My camera is still on the blink! Hope everyone is having a wonderful time getting ready for the season! I know I am! ~~Annie
