Week in review

I had a wonderful week last week. I won 3 giveaway prizes.

copy of Beth Kendrick's book, The Bake Off from Debbie's Book Bag. If you love books I recommend Debbie's blog.

A copy of the Magic Warble from One Crazy Cookie. Tiffanee has some awesome recipes on her site.

A ruffled kitchen towel from FrouFrouBritches. The picture is just lovely and I can't wait to get it in the mail.

I also bought myself some things this week. I went to Lowe's Foods and they had some hanging plants on clearance for $3 each. I don't have anywhere to hang them but I set them on each side of my balcony. They are perking up nicely with deheading and water. Also in the picture is a little tool I bought on clearance at Wal-Mart not knowing what I would use it for. Its a sonic scrubber pro detailer. I have rheumatoid arthritis and my hands aren't what they used to be. I have used this detailer for doing dishes. Its amazing for scrubbing. It gets in all the little tiny cracks and its better than a brillo pad for cleaning pots and pans plus it doesn't take the coating off pans. Its battery powered so it does the work for me. I wish I had bought way more of them. I don't keep it on the porch but I was trying for just one picture :)

This purchase here is the one that means the most to me. Growing up we had a little plastic ball that you plugged up and it chirped like a bird. I always got to be the one to plug it up and when I was an adult my grandmother gave it to me. 11 years ago someone in a fit of pique gave all my christmas stuff away. I had a lot of keepsake items in there but that ball was the most meaningful for me. I haven't really been in the christmas spirit since. I have seached antique shops, thrift stores, Ebay, Amazon, googled and never saw anything like it. Out of the blue God told me to google one more time and up popped this link. The reviews weren't very good but it was exactly what I was looking for and exactly what I was expecting. Shipping was almost as much as the item but $15 for something that means so much to me wasn't too much and I used my gift cards I earned at Swagbucks This video isn't very good quality but it works.
