Happy Independence Day!

You might not remember, but last year you recommended the Smoky Mountain Dreams series by Sandra Robbins to me. Well, I just want to thank you for your recommendation. I completed the last book yesterday and I just LOVED them (I read all 3 books in 5 days)!!! Though the last book was a bit sad when they had to leave the cove. I would have to say it's one of my favorite series ever and it totally reminded me of Christy. :) Thanks again!!!

Wow Jean! What an amazing package for the happy mail tag in the FF group. The FOE is awesome, I make hair ties with this for my daughter and I. The thread is super neat! All me thread is from the 60's I think. Great quality, I'm so excited to try it. The stamps- wow- so generous! Great pamphlets. I was interested in the coveted bridge one. I live right down the street from one (MIms Bottom covered bridge) and it was recently destroyed. Well, near destroyed. I haven't seen it as the road has been closed. Apparently a large truck tried to go through. It tore off the back then the front. So sad. It's such an iconic landmark here.

you are amazing! Thank you for making my week!
