Does Anyone Know Donna?

 Yikes.  A few weeks ago I received my giveaway goodies that I won from Tolentreasures.  These are absolutely beautiful!!!! 

 Her friend Donna sent me an awesome grubby candle that she'd made to be included with my winnings from Tolentreasures.  It arrived a couple weeks later.  The problem is I want to thank Donna for my candle, but I cannot remember which blog is hers.  Here is a photo of her ( my) wonderful candle if that helps.  It's really so neat, I don't think the photo does it justice. AND it smells so good!  I love it!  If you know Donna's blog name - please let me know so I can thank her properly!

Hubby took me shopping today.  I had a $25 gift certificate for Joann Fabrics that one of my lovely daughters gave me for Christmas.  I wanted to spend it!  I had a couple 50% off coupons but was only able to use one of them, as most everything in the store was already on sale and you can't use the coupons on sale items.  I bought a 10# box of polyester filling for a little under $20.  ( I had been hoping to use one of the coupons on it, lol) and I finally picked up some pink flannel to use for my 4 year old gd's monkey.  Her older sister wants a brown one.  BTW my sister tells me that her grandson LOVED his monkey!
Shhhh   hubby Tom does not know this, but my daughters and I have planned a SURPRISE retirement party for him next Saturday.  Of course I need a new outfit to wear so I asked him to take me to Walmarts while we were out.  I did find a pair of jeans and a new top that I fell in love with and was looking for a new pair of black dressy clogs to go with it.  Found nothing there so we drove on to Kmart and again, no shoes that I liked.  But I did find 3 more tops that I loved and they were all reduced - got all 3 for $16.00!  I will be taking all new clothes to Atantic City in February.   I digress from the topic, lol  sorry. To get Tom to the party, he thinks we are going to our next door neighbors surprise 30th anniversary party.  They've been married 32 years actually and I do not know when their actual anniversary is, but Tom doesn't know either, so it works!
Hopefully everyone will be there a half hour before we arrive.  When we walk in my daughter is going to have the DJ she hired play 'Take This Job And Shove It'.  I hope she knows someone who has a video camera.  I'll have to mention it to her.
I added several new items to my selling blog today.
Tom and I are going out for wings for dinner in a few hours - I am loving his retirement!  Hee hee  we go out at least twice a week now!

  12. Hi Denise,
    Been reading your blog for awhile now, but never wrote. And I'm jealous of you cause you won the gifts that I wanted from ToleNTreasures!!!!!!
    I believe this is the person who sent you the candle. She is always adding to someone http://sweetprairiedwellings.blogspot.com/else's giveaway. You could check out her blog and see if it's her, but I think it is. Well, that didn't go where I wanted it!!!!
    And if you would check out my new blog, I'm just a newbie. I've been reading blogs for almost a year and thought I would jump in. I've got to do some work on it, as I would like it to be a selling blog, but I'm not too computer savy to navigate everything, so for now you can look at pics!!! lol http://huckleberrylady.blogspot.com/
    Thanks,
    Lois
