Oh Happy Day

Yes...Tuesday was a happy day for me...first the sun came out after four long days of wind and rain...second the sun brought with it some cooler temps...third I received two packages in the mail...oh how I love to get packages delivered to my doorstep! So what did I get? I started first with the was a giveaway item that I won from Jan over at GRACIE'S COTTAGE...if you have never been over there, then you are missing a wonderful blog full of awesome ideas and if you go by, please tell Jan hello for me...she is soooo sweet...I promise you will love her! Oh I guess you are wondering what I was a vintage FLEABAG...okay what's a vintage fleabag you say? Well it's an authentic grain sack that has been made into a large tote...perfect for using while you are out at flea markets doing some serious shopping. You can find these and other outstanding farmhouse style items over at Jan's ETSY here to check out all her goodies. My second package was from Laura from B and B's Nest...does anybody remember my friend Laura who just sponsored a giveaway here at Coastal Charm? Laura was so sweet to send me this wonderful tube of hand cream as a thank you I would like to thank Laura...this stuff makes my hands so soft and now if I can just keep Mr.CC from wanting to hold my hand 24/7...he loves it too!  Laura also has an amazing ETSY shop full of can click here to do some shopping at hers. Thanks ladies you made my day very special.

                                   used as a notecard...just way
                                        She is HUGE...just the
                                          perfect size for that
                                         beach bag that I have
                                         been looking for...yes
                                         I'm planning on using
                                       her to carry all my stuff
                                       while I'm beachin' it!!!!
                                           I sooooo LOVE her!!!
