Gift Exchange

Happy March!!
I can't believe it is March already, this year is flying by which is ok because then we can get to summer quicker.  
This week has been busy with sports and I am still sick but finally went to the doctor and now I have some good stuff to knock this cold out.
Of course now the boy is sick so we are off to the doctor again.
Yesterday my hubby turned 11!!  
He is getting so big!  LOL!
Yup, he is a leap year baby.  It was kind of funny, he and my daughter both turned 10 on the same year.  They even put something in the paper about it and their photo was on the front page which she thought was pretty cool!
And yes, he does act his age sometimes.

Anyway, a while ago my friend Brandi from Don't Disturb This Groove contacted me with a gift exchange idea for those that wanted to participate and I thought that it would be fun so I said yes!

My gift exchange friend was Comeca from Shans Wife Meme
I met Comeca about a year ago and she is the sweetest and has such a beautiful blog full of love and ideas for the home.  We have exchanged emails every now and then and I love her style.  If you have not met her please stop by and say hi, she is beautiful inside and out!
You can also see what gift I sent her.

Monday I was having a bad day and then a knock at my door changed my mood.
I saw a box sitting at my doorstep and when I opened it up I smiled from ear to ear at what was inside.
Not only did I see something but I could smell, even with the cold, this beautiful fragrant.

Inside was this gorgeous shell wreath, a sachet of Seaspray scents to put in your home and these beautiful seashell tablecloth weights that I can't wait to use on our deck this summer along a sweet little note.
 (does she know me or what. :) )



Aren't they beautiful!



Just look at all those shells!!


I can't wait to find a place for it, I have so many spots to try out. :)

Thank you so much Comeca and Brandi for this, it was so much fun.

Please stop by Don't Disturb This Groove to see what everyone received and I do believe that Brandi has a little giveaway.

Hi Michelle, I found you through Brandi @ Don't Disturb This Groove. I'm a new follower on GFC and Linky and hope you will return the favor.
You are so talented and I love your seascape painting. It took me back to my favorite vacation in BC Canada where I visited a friend with the beach right in her backyard! Hmmmm . . . I think I need to pull out my pics and browse on this rainy day. : ) Thanks for the comforting memory.

Hi Michelle~

I am so sorry to hear you are still sick! That is good news that the doctor gave you some medicine for it, and hopefully it will cure it and you will feel better! :) I love the sweet gifts you received from your friend! That wreath IS gorgeous! Did she make it herself? That is pretty amazing, I think! :)

I hope you have a good weekend, my friend, and get better soon! :) Take good care of yourself!
