It's here...It's here...Tootsie's birdbath!

Hi friends,


I can't believe it's here! YIPPPEEEE! Oh, I was so excited today when I got home. Tootsie over @ http://tootsietime.blogspot.com/ had a giveaway a few weeks ago and I won....can you believe it? Not only is she one of my favorite bloggers but she is a really great friend, too. All the way back from the old RMS days.Well, it just seemed like it took forever to get here, it made it, safe & sound....of course she put a lifetime supply of bubblewrap in there....lol.

The box was almost as big as Texas :)

Tootsie was very specific about how to handle this package.....



The postmaster followed orders....
She included the sweetest letter, too. Oh, Tootsie you can make me laugh until
I cry...then you can just make me cry. You are such a special lady! :)


Now where do I put this ONE-OF-A-KIND-TOOTSIE ORIGINAL?







Isn't it the sweetest thing you've ever seen?

Thank you Tootsie, I will cherish it always. :)




So as promised.....here it is.....drum roll, please......lol. My cartwheel....







NOTE: If I visit your blog and tell you I'm doing cartwheels, I really mean it. :)


For now the birdbath will come back inside with me....we are watching for Hurricane Ike. :( Besides, it's too pretty for outside, isn't it? Please take care, especially if you are along the coast. Be safe.


Hugs~ J.

Congratulations Jessica! This is a precious one of a kind treasure....I can only imagine how thrilled you were to recieve it. Girl, you are good, you know it....you can do cartwheels, wow! lol! I sure couldn't do those anymore. Haven't done one of those since grade school! lol

That birdbath is FABULOUS! WOW! Hey gal, you take super care with regard to the hurricane! Well, you could just cartwheel your way across TX til you were out of harm's way hee hee!

I wasn't sure, if your comment about my "Tea" Roses meant you were saying you would like to order some, or if you meant in general, anyway, in case you did want to order I didn't want you to think I was ignoring you!

You can order from me directly by emailing me at shabbyroses4u@yahoo.com. Or from my Etsy Shoppe, there is a link on my blog to that too. Just indicate what you would like, color choice and regular or decaffeinated! I'll send you a Paypal invoice, or if you would like to purchase with a MO or check, just let me know and I'll give you my mailing address to send payment! Thanks!

That turned out so cute and I'm glad it arrived in one piece! Tootsie's one of my favorites too, way back to RMS too! Take care and I hope Ike stays away from you.

I learned how to tape and pack from my dad...he is the king of duct tape! I am glad it made it in one piece!
Those cartwheels are amazing lady.. the closest you will see tootsie do to that is maybe roll over in bed! lol...
You know I love you girl, and I appreciate the support and friendship we have had...and will continue to have.
I am so worried about you and that storm.. Just a thought...Alberta may be cold in the winter, but the weather is not as scary as that...hint hint....and then I could give you this big hug in person! (feel the squeeze yet? ....okay now? I can't squeeze much tighter so I hope you felt that!)
love you lots lady..stay safe and enjoy your new toy!

I was so thrilled when I saw that you had won that, okay I would have been more thrilled if it had been me but you were a close second!
Girl you rock! I haven't been able to do a cartwheel for a lot of years now, maybe high school. It would not be so pretty now. You have such a fun and wonderful personality.

If you get a chance stop over to the message board I am all about showing off one of my great nephews.
