Care Package

The doorbell rang yesterday morning around 10:00 and I went to the door to find my good ole UPS man. I was so happy to see this big box on my front porch. My UPS man was in his truck by the time I got to the door and waved at me to make sure I got the package and I kindly waved back. Yep, it was my care package from my Mom. Oh, I love my Mom. She always knows how to brighten my day and put a smile on my face. Not just because she buys me goodies, but just because she is such a sweet person and has a heart of gold. My Mom would do anything and everything for you as long as you treat her right in return. I am sure everyone is that way. I know that I am! Anyway, she told me that she was going to send me a care package since I was having a bad week, but I had no clue it would have so many wonderful goodies in it. Here is what she sent to me....... She sent me these 2 cute little prim black dolls. I just love them and can't wait to find the perfect spot for them. I love the little hearts around their necks.
She also sent me this thermostat cover. Don't you just love it? Yep, I totally fell in love with it when I saw it, but unfortunately my thermostat is so close to the edge of our wall leading into our hallway that it doesn't fit. So, I am either going to have to rig it a different way or just use it someplace else.
She also sent me a Country Sampler and a Mercantile Gatherings. So, I am admiring all of the wonderful blog land ladies and their homes as I am reading. Don't they have beautiful prim homes? Included here as you can see.....she sent me cheesecloth and a rusty star garland. Oh - I wouldn't want to forget the other items that aren't shown here...... She also sent me 2 bags of my favorite rice chips that she got me started on. I can't find them where I live so she sends them to me and she also included 2 Olive Garden gift cards. Isn't she a great Mom? I took the evening and puttered around my home with all of my goodies and this weekend we plan on going to Olive Garden (I can't wait).
On a side note..... I bought my Walnut Gel Stain last night. I thought I would try that first and see how it works. If it doesn't work then I will try the other stuff. I will of course take before and after pictures so stay tuned ladies!! Thank you again for all of your advice. You are wonderful and I am so thankful to have such helpful and wonderful bloggy friends!!
Oh - I think I found the paint that we are going to use on our cupboards. It is called Clean and Crisp and I think it will look great. I have brought home so many paint chips to see which one would look better and I keep going back to that one so I think we are gonna go with it. So, as soon as I stop being a chicken, I will dive into the bathroom cupboard and start revamping the cupboards. I guess you all never know when I will start to you better stay close by and keep an eye on my blog. I might surprise you all someday : )
Blessings to you all.

What a precious Mama you have! Mine was too, but she never understood my prim tastes! LOL! But she was supportive of me, and that's what mattered. I miss her so much!
Your Mama sent you some wonderful things! I especially love that thermostat cover and I hope you can figure out a way to use it. It will be a shame if you can't.
Your paint color sounds great. I can't wait to see it all when finished.
Enjoy your day!
