I’m still alive!

Barely! I’m still sick.

I’m sorry I’ve been missing and I really appreciate all the emails checking on me but I don’t feel well and I don’t like to share a bunch of negativity on my blog. In fact… it’s a HUGE pet peeve of mine. Those consistent Negative Nancy’s quickly get removed from my blog roll, and seeing how I’ve been sick for so long… I don’t want to have to remove myself! LOL!

So… long story short. I’ve been sick since January 16th. It’s very frustrating. This darn cold has mutated into three different week long illnesses and starting this week… week four of this illness… we have now moved into my chest and I can’t breath. YUK! Such is the life of an immune compromised person who gets a simple cold. :( I’m guessing… based on last years winter cold, I may be well by March. I’m going to the doctor today so maybe! :/ I’m hoping. Lets pray for that!

…and enough of that crap! Again… negative Nancy’s NOT my style. Lets move on to happy stuff!!!


I won a giveaway from Linda over at Parkers Paradise a few weeks ago! YAY me!!! And Thanks Linda!!!! I was super excited because she mixed everything up in the 5 boxes she gave away so I didn’t know what wonderful things I was going to end up with.

Check out my goodies!!!

Three Pewter Pieces!!! Woohoo!!!!  


An awesome wood bowl with matching candle sticks.


Soy Tarts and wax dipped pins.


An adorable heart tea light holder.



Some great Pantry cake molds! I’m excited about these! Can’t wait to use them!!!


The pins ended up in the laundry room display…


Here’s the other wall just for fun! My rug beaters and my washboards. :)


The Pewter Stein ended up on the Pewter shelf. I need a bigger shelf! O.O


The cream and sugar set…


And the tea light holder by the Valentines tree.



The candlesticks are in the entry way and the bowl in the office. :)

Thank you so much Linda!!! I love love love everything you sent! What a wonderful giveaway and much appreciated!!!

So sorry to hear you are feeling like crap honey! I had a nasty cold for almost 5 weeks. It really took a toll on me. I hope your giveaway goodies make you feel better. They sure do look nice.
Praying for you,

I knew you were sick but I was worried it was related to the new tattoo. That goodness it's not that. But I hate it when a cold goes into my chest. I will certainly pray for you to get better ASAP.
Wow, you did get some pewter. Cool. I thought you might. I haven't heard from everyone so I'm still curious about what everyone got. Surprise giveaway for everyone. LOL
I love the tin in your laundry. Did you re-purpose something for that? just curious.

Hi Carmen,
I was wondering were you've been. I have been sick for10 days. Much better now, missed a week of work and went back yesterday, but I am so weak! I got home at 6 and was in bed by 7:45. I hope today will be better for both of us!

So sorry to hear you have been unwell. We all need a spring wind to blow through our woods and clear out the germs huh! We have whopping cough going around our high school! YUCk!
You did recieve some beautiful treasures. It was fun to see where you put them all.
