Lovely Dotty Swap Gifts!

Going Dotty!
I couldn't wait to unwrap the dotty tissue paper to see what my swap partner Betsy fromThe Little Red Hen at Home had sent me.  Look at all the red and aqua happiness!  I've been loving that color combination lately...as my endless Pinboards will attest...and sweet Betsy picked up on it.  All her gifts were handmade...I feel so special!  I wish I could say I made all of Betsy's gifts myself...but I didn't even remember to take a picture, so excited was I to get them in the mail.

What Betsy made...
The Dear Dotty Apron.
I've decided there must always be an apron in this spot on the kitchen wall.

Sweet Coordinating Potholder
It has joined the apron on the kitchen wall...too cute to be separated!

Pincushion Notion Jar
I've pinned several of these because I love them so much...

...for now it joins my Zetta Letters in my office!

Thank You, Dear Betsy!
And thanks to Holly of Cutie Pie Cottage for hosting such a fun swap!
Well done!

Cute Dotty Cherry Mugs...

Cutest Enamelware Mugs!
I picked these up at the D.I. thrift store for 50 cents each!
Could make cute Valentines gifts next year.

The Wedding is over at last...
I intended to post pictures of  the wedding decorations...but in the happy chaos I forgot to take my camera!  Fortunately the photographer graciously photographed all my decor...but I haven't received a picture disk yet...when I do I will be excited to show you how nice everything looked.  It was a lovely evening!

Happy Valentines Day!

Hi Shirley,

Of course my eye went directly to the cute things the apron is hanging with! I love how you decorate!

It really was such a fun swap and I'm so glad we were partners.

I'm looking forward to seeing pictures from the wedding!

Make it a point to eat a little serving. To ensure you are going to carry it out, ask someone to join you in eating it. Having so much options despite the fact that they are in little servings can help you overcome psychological thirstiness. You certainly can lose weight by dieting alone but you will probably gain the weight right back once you go back to eating normally. Many times you will feel thinner because water and muscles have been depleted. Dieting without exercise reduces your fat burning hormones, which can cause your body to store fat. As your metabolic rate slows down there can be a huge change in your body's chemical makeup. This could cause you to feel tired and lethargic as well as feeling stressed out.
