Good News

I've found that the good weeks are really good and the bad weeks can have some good in them. I hurt my thumb about two months ago and I complained that it was still bothering me.  One week after I mentioned my thumb I broke my toe. I've decided that I'm not having any more bad days nor hurt body parts :)

It's Good News from now on!

(Well, I'll be realistic - more good news than bad!)

To start my good week off on a much more pleasant note I received some fun stuff in the mail!

I've said again and again that if I enter a giveaway there's an above average chance that I'll win it. On Facebook one of my favorite stationery companies, Fabulous Stationery, had a Friday Grab Bag giveaway, so I entered and I won!

I had no idea what cards I was to receive, but I have to tell you, I got the best grab bag :) 

It looks like the grab bag I won was mostly from the same style of cards, but there are so many styles on their website.  I've purchased personalized cards, Christmas Cards, Valentines Day cards and other assorted cards from them.  I'm clearly a fan of this company!  It's cool that I won a giveaway.  Thanks Fabulous Stationery.

On Saturday I received another gift in the mail!  This wasn't a giveaway that I entered, but rather a gift from a blogging friend, Debby from Just Breathe.  She figured out from the not-to-subtle blog posts that I write that I am in love with dishtowels, I collect fortune cookie fortunes and smashed pennies.  Debby had just recently gone to Mammoth Lakes, CA and it looks like she found a penny smashing machine!

The dishtowel is one of the larger ones from Crate and Barrel, oh my goodness, I love it.  Their dishtowels are so great.  The elephant on the coin has his trunk raised up which is supposed to be good luck.  I guess it's already working :) 

I've been reading the fortunes and she sent some good ones. 

I really like "Take the chance while you still have the choice" and I can't wait for "You will be traveling and coming into a fortune."  The fortune could be anything, but I could use the kind of fortune that is money :) 

Thanks so much Debby for this great little surprise in the mail.  I really enjoyed it!!

Have a great week!
