These were the things that was in my box from Marcia at Vintage French Hen. My pictures don't do it justice. The box came with Vintage music on the outside of the box. The sea shells were really pretty. The big one was pink in color, the bottle had little ones and sand in it. A pair of vintage clip on ear rings. My blue plate has a turtle on it with three more sea shells laying on it.

I love the vintage embroidery which you all know that by looking at the things that I do. There was a vintage pattern it just to name a few. I am just sorry that my pictures don't do it justice, but I love everything that was in the box.

This was my magnolia tree in bloom before all of the crazy weather. Today is was rain all day and in the 40's with a strong wind. There is another round headed our way yet tonight. We had to turn the heat back on at work and the electricity blink just enough for my computer at work to go down twice today. It is a pain when you are in the middle of something to have that to happen.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. We were out to my son's to take the car seat home for a little while. My 5 year old had to tell me about the six fish that he caught. They go fishing at my brother's where they pretty much can drive down to the pond. He will be having graduations ceremonies this next week from preschool. He had to remind me about that and I told him Grandma has it marked on the calendar.
I can't wait for Thursday because we are going to take a much needed time away from everything. I don't think the weather is going to be much better, but it is suppose to warmer. I will tell you about that when we get home.
You all have a wonderful week.

Howdy Shirley... brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.. it was cold here for the past few day's but now it is going up to the high 80's and even into the 90's.. I use to have a big shell like your one with the pink in it.. I use to love to listen to the ocean sound by putting it up to my ear. Hope all is well with you and your family.. Waving vigorously at you from down here in Arkansas...

Hi Shirley!

Congrats on your big win, isn't it so much fun to get a package from a blog friend?

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Hi Shirley, Congrats on your win. Everything is wonderful. You really received special treasures.
Love your magnolia tree pic. We just had to remove our Grand Magnolia from the backyard. It was too big and split last year in a storm. Never looked the same and by a pool it needed to go.
We still have a large one in the front yard to enjoy.

Hope you are having a good week and thank you for stopping by and your kind comment. Good Luck in my giveaway.

Hugs and blessings, Celestina Marie
