Hot Diggity!!

Woke up to this.

And this.

And this.

The first one needs no explanation, but just in case, it's my dog Chloe, after she had the time of her life in the backyard.

The second looks like what may have been a bear loose in my basement, but in fact it was The Man taking a hammer to the wall.

The third......sorry, what? Oooooohh, you want further clarification on the second, I gotchya. Well, in one of my prior posts I mentioned we had a flooding problem in the basement. The hammer incident was an attempt to locate the exact spot where the water was coming in. No worries, it's nothing a huge picture can't take care of.

Back to the third. That's The Man's shirt, after it came out of the wash,'! Did I mention there was a full load?

Yeah, all of this BEFORE coffee.

Then I sat down to my computer and found this:

A Giveaway that I WON!!!!!! Thank you to Queenie from Queenie's Vintage Finds and Treasures!

She even threw in these extra goodies with her Giveaway, after the fact, because that's the kind of generous person she is.

I only recently stumbled upon this wonderful woman's blog,and we became instant friends. Her blog is full of everything lace and vintage and her Etsy store is worth the visit. Do yourself a favor and go browse - the blog and the shop - you won't be disappointed.

Have a great day all!

Chloe looks like she was having a grand old time. I wouldn't know whether to laugh or scold her. I have to ask, did she get a bath right away or just shut in the laundry room till you had your coffee?

All of that before coffee? Oh honey!

I'm so glad you had a win this morning. It looks great. :)

So glad your leak in your basement isn't a major plumbing problem! That could definitely hurt on the pocket book!

How fun that you won such a sweet giveaway!! I have won a few and it just makes my day to find out that I am the blessed recipient of such pretties!

I had a blogger ask if I would consider doing a swap with her as she liked my little sweater pumpkins and I was so thrilled to finally be involved in one. Am finding all kinds of little treasures to add to her box- what fun!


Puppy's just love to have FUN!!!
You are the lucky winner of Queenie's giveaway..HURRAY for You!
Queenie is a sweetie!
Tomorrow will be a better day.

Oh goodness gracious! I don't look forward to the days (all to soon) when I will need to look for things like lipstick in the girls' pockets. I can guarantee you that we will have lots of those lipsticky loads! ;)


Lee Laurie said...

I forgot to tell you Congrats on winning the giveaway! All of it is cute!

In case you didn't take care of that lipstick all over your laundry, check out my blog. I swear this stuff works - I just removed mustard from a white chiffon scarf. Good luck!

Oh my gosh Kim, what a morning you had last week! Lipstick in the on earth did you get it out? My boys are usually leaving paper in their pants...not nearly as bad as that lipstick. Chloe sure is a cutie! I am sorry I didn't get over here sooner, I don't think my dashboard is updating some of the blogs I follow! Thanks for the sweet things that you said here on this post...I feel like we were instant friends too! I'm glad that your Giveaway Package arrived too! Hope you have a great day!
Big Hugs,
