My Beautiful gifts from Barb.

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. I had such a busy week and this weekend has turned out to be the same. I went to the Market yesterday and bought my veggies and fruit for the week then came home and made chicken broth. My freezer is so full I can't put another thing into it. I should say them because the one on the frig is packed too. I was looking for something on Friday and found several packages of chicken parts so decided to make chicken broth. I ended up with about 4 quarts for the freezer and I used the rest in my Potato Leek soup that I made for dinner last night. A nice Ceaser salad and dinner was easy and so good.

After my busy day I almost forgot to get my mail. I'm so happy I didn't because Barb's package was waiting for me. I was so excited. Isn't everything so pretty. I almost just left it all wrapped up....OK maybe not for very long.

Now see all the wonderful goodies I found in my package!! I am so happy I won!

This is everything grouped together and below close ups of all my beauty's. Isn't the rooster so very handsome?

Don't you love the pillows? I have a.....well I'm not too sure what to call it. I should have taken a picture. It's what they used to call a hall bench. Or at least that's what I was told when I bought it. It has one drawer that I keep some of my linens in and on the top I have an old old quilt. Now my beautiful pillows are there too! I have it sitting under my window in my bedroom so I can see them often and enjoy.

And my beautiful towels. Aren't they they the cutest?

Isn't it all beautiful? Thank you again Barb. I am so enjoying everything. I hope you enjoyed seeing all my new treasures and that you all have a wonderful week.
I am making Ina's Indonesian Ginger Chicken for dinner. I plan on posting the recipe later in the week.

Hi Judy!!
I've missed you, too, my friend!! It was so nice of you to come over and leave me such a sweet comment. I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things now that fall is here. You really got a lovely package of goodies from Barb!! Luuuuvvviinngg that Eiffel Tower pillow ~ it is fabulous!!
Hugs, Bebe :)
P.S. Your soup sounded good! Still a little too warm here for soup making, but I'm thinking about cooler nights in Sept. for some.

Wow...what a fabulous give-away. You should have joined the Rooster Party with that fabulous rooster pillow. Talking about your freezer being full....can you freeze fresh corn on the cob? and if so, how and is it any good when you eat it in the middle of winter? I don't like the store brought frozen corn at all. Have a great week Judy. xo

Hi Judy,

I am so glad you liked everything. When hubby pulled your name out, I told him you lived in Denver. Being from Co. he said he could feel the good vibes.

I will need to send that Recipe for the Indonesian chicken to Dorothy. I think Jeff is tired of Indonesian all the time-hehe.

many hugs,

Nancy said...

All of the gifts you received are so nice. Your soup sounds really good too. I love potato soup.
