Berries and Blog Candy!!! All in the same day!

First, I have to show you DD's berry harvest for the day.
This is the third day running that I've picked this many, and there are SO many more out there! Sadly, DD didn't get her berry plants moved to HER house before they became HUGE this spring, but happily, mom is eating many berries!
Of course, I'm due for another shower now, as it makes me SO itchy!!
Hopefully DD will get by to enjoy some of the harvest before it's too late!

Next...lookie, lookie what USPS brought me today! I am SO excited! This is blog candy that I won a week or so ago on Kristie Session's blog! If you don't know Kristie, you really should go check out her beautiful blog. She is as pretty inside as out, and so sweet!
If you enlarge the photo, maybe you can see better what's here. The picture didn't take very well - so sorry!
Below is the adorable card that Kristie made and included in the box!!! Can you say awesome???!!!
I wanted you to see a close-up of the stamp set. It's beautiful, and I've never owned any stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms, so this is just perfect!!!

DH and I had to take a big bearing and a 200 pound steel shaft to the machine shop in the city today. It was strictly business - straight up and back, but at least we got some time together!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and that your week is full of blessings, as well.

Food for thought: The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment...
