Dab of This and That

This week started off with a bang ! Another line of severe storms rolled thru yesterday afternoon. Lost electricity 3 different times, but consider myself fortunate as according to the outage map there are still over 7000 without power in the area this afternoon - lots of wind damage. An elderly neighbor called and said she was afraid. I tried to reassure her, and I did not tell her I was afraid also. Had a lot of tree debris to clean up afterwards, and the wind and rain stripped a lot of the blooms off my flowers. These storms are making me weary.

Look what I got in the mail today !! Christine @ christinewallacevintagejewelry.blogspot.com had a giveaway for one of her beautiful necklaces and guess who won ?!?! ME !!! :-D
Look at this package - you know there is going to be something wonderful inside,
and there is.....
Thank You again Christine - I just love my beautiful necklace

Other things going on, but nothing to "write home about".
Have a great week!

Sorry about your storms Glenda. We had a very brief one here also. It is just too hot to be without power, but glad ya'll are safe. Yes, that baby was smiling about something, cute lil thing!

Oh cute! I can see she is a swing lover too! Isn't it so fun to see, these little cute granddaughters of ours!
And congrats Glenda on that gorgeous necklace, that is a great give-away win!
I hope the storms stay far away for awhile too!

I'd be scared too especially with all that's been happening around the country. Hope things have settled down for now. Your granddaughter is adorable in her swing, such a sweet smile.
I love that necklace you won!!
