I'm Back ;o) Thanks Donna and Thanks Shelle ;o)

Hi Everyone ;o) Well, mom and I had a fantastic time away! I think we are going back in September! We scored at the Heinz factory shop! Mustard, relish, ketchup, chicken noodle soup, beans, chili sauce, hot sauce, vinegar, HP sauce, apple juice and did you know they make dog bones???? Well, they do. They were selling these huge boxes, I think there was like 500 plus milk bones in them. We bought a box for our friends, they have two dogs ;o) Oh, and we also scored with the vegetables and fruit! Watermelon, melons, grapes, beans, tomatoes, onions, peaches and I can't remember everything else! LOL! But, I can tell you, the car was very full!!!

I would like to share with you, two very special things that I received in the mail ;o) The first was from Donna ;o) Donna's Etsy shop is full of wonderful handmade spiritual items. It was a big surprise, when I received this beautiful St. Francis tag. Donna made it just for me, a gift from the heart. St. Francis is the Saint for nature and the environment. He loved all animals ;o) I really loved the way Donna finished the back of my tag too ;o) Enjoy everyone ;o) Hugs Donna ;o)










Do you all remember the Mad Tea Party? Well, I won the prize from Shelle ;o) I got to pick whatever I wanted out of her shop! There was a nude Shelle did on a piece of drift wood and I had been eyeing that piece for awhile, so that's what I picked! It is amazing!!! Enjoy everyone ;o) Hugs Shelle ;o)











Big Hugs ;o)

  6. Yay, Stacy's back!!!! I missed ya! Wow what a great stash ya got at Heinz!!! Oh I just LOVE your St Francis tag from Donna! He has always been my favorite saint since a child. My Godfather gave me a statue of him and a childrens book for my First Holy Communion in second grade. I still have the statue!I remember back then he asked me which was my favorite saint and I didn't know about any of them. Then he asked what did I love most in my life, and I said " nature and wild animals" so then he told me about St Francis and I've been praying to him ever since!!!!Lucky, lucky you, I love how Donna personalized the tag on the back for ya! She's a sweetheart! And oh my gosh, Shelle's nude is gorgeous!!! You picked a beauty, Shelle is sooooo talented! Lucky Lucky you AGAIN! You deserve it sweetie!!!!And most of all I LOVE your wood painting with the carved heart!!!!Ok this is getting long, I'm gone!!!! BIG HUGS and welcome home!Deb

  23. WOW! You really shopped! I remember so many heinz products and my first trip to Wyoming. Desperate for a bite to eat we stopped at a little diner. Menu painted on the wall included such gourmet meals as Heinz beans and franks and Campbell's bean with bacon soup. Must be there was no cook available so they opened the can and heated it up.

    Lovely stuff from Donna and Shelle!

  31. Stacy, I am so glad you and your mother had such a wonderful trip and got so many fabulous deals! I'm surprise there was room for you both to sit int he car. ;-)

    I LOVE the Catholic saints. I have a dear friend who is catholic and she shares information about them at times. And Shelle's art...oh goodness! Truly gorgeous.

    "For You" is so beautiful! It almost has a surreal feel to it. Your art just amazes me, my sweet friend.

  32. Donna love the St Francis art, my youngest took St Francis of Assisi as her confirmation saint (so it's a part of her name) I think the love of nature & animals has made him one of the favourite Catholic saints :)
    Stacy you & your mom sound like you could set up a restaurant with that booty, definitely sounds like a wise decision to return soon ;)
