Good Morning Jane Sweetie..
Congrats to Laurie. She will have fun with this gift card.

I am sorry I missed it, durn it. I love the table makeover you did below. Now Jane that is scrumptous. I so love the look. You did an awesome job.

Now I love Layla. Doesn't she just look snug as a bug? Her face is precious sweetie. My Bruiser sends her a big Hello Lick. He licks everyone he likes.

I see you are having some cooler temps. We are still having triple digits here. I don't see any cooling trend in the forecast.

Many hugs sweet friend, and so much love, Sherry

Have a great Weekend:-)

Jacqueline @ HOME said...

Well done to the winner. A lovely gift to win.

Cape Cod Rambling Rose said...

Thank you for your sweet note on my blog! Now that I think of it, when I was a kid and we were camping in NH in that same trailer, we had a freak mini-twister one summer. Our campground was in a valley (the twister was stuck, hitting off the sides of the mountains), and that trailer swayed back and forth (I got seasick)! A fellow camper's picnic table flew up into the air and hit a tree, and everyone's outside chairs, candles, grilling utensils (you name it) were scattered everywhere when all was done. I feel much safer today in my house than I did in that trailer! lol

Deb said...

Such a cute picture of sweet Layla ♥ Have a wonderful long weekend Jane.
