Hi friends, how are you all?

I'm just posting today to let everyone know that my GIVEAWAY is still on for one more week and any followers are welcome to sign up by leaving a comment on the previous post for a chance to win this Americana stocking I made~
Also there are some new items listed today on my selling blog, The Primitive Shelf. Here are some of them~I also have to wish my mother birthday HAPPY BIRTHDAY today. My mum is 70 today though you wouldn't think it. She is the best mother and I know first hand how precious it is to have a godly mother praying for you everyday and giving wise council and encouragement. Thank you, Mum, I love you!
On Sat night past we all went to a surprise dinner for her at a lovely restaurant. It was a great evening and Mum really enjoyed it - even the embarrassing but obligatory singing of Happy Birthday when the cake was brought out!
My littlest daughter thought it was so much fun though as you can see!
Thanks for visiting and don't forget to scroll down to the post below to sign up for my giveaway!
Have a wonderful week!
