Bet Booty!

A couple of weeks ago, before things went a little haywire in the land of blog, I received a package from the one and only Sharon. It was in payment for a bet we had made between us that Missouri would beat the Sooners in football. Well, guess what, she lost!, lol. She was out of town when I got the package so I waited until the dust settled before I shared this with you'll.

First, before the pictures, let me tell you, she whined so much about losing that bet, that I sent her a consolation prize. AND, I gave her a chance to bet against the Patriots in the Super Bowl. Did she take me up on that one? Nope! So she doesn't get anything for them losing. I guess she will have to wait until Missouri plays Oklahoma again to try to win another bet, lol.

Now on to the pictures. When I opened the box, the first thing I saw was lavender tissue paper! Is that not the coolest thing? I don't think I have ever gotten a package with lavender tissue paper before! It is so pretty, and those peppermints in there are my favorite kind! And of course the lavender goes well with the purple in my hair, lol.


Under the tissue was some more candy and this humongous gorgeous heart pincushion! I had to go buy some new pins just to fill it up! I love it, love it, love it!!!


And then there is the flying Santa. He is so cute! He is going in my sewing room on my wall to remind me daily of the nice person that gave it to me, lol.

So a big thank you Sharon. Can't wait until football season rolls around again!!!!!

This is very good natured betting that you two have going. The pincushion is pretty and HUGE enough to display with pillows. Very nice of you to visit my blog. Will keep up with you on the blogline...

When you go buy those pins, don't forget the thread. ;)

I cannot believe it hit 78 degrees for you. WOW! :) That's May weather for us, up here.

Sharon did indeed spoil you rotten. I need to remember to bet on more games, in the hopes I can score swag like that. ;)

Hmmm. You are a Missouri Fan? I am a Husker Fan, so what say we make a little wager for next year's Nebraska vs. Missouri Football game? Yes, you thoroughly tromped on us this year, so we will be out for revenge!!
