~So Good To Me~

My busy weekend is over and I've successfully laid out the plans for the next seven days. I have many things I want to share with you... lots of product orders to fill as well as exciting offerings for eBay to upload. Gosh...seems like I never stop!

That's right. I don't! But, I LOVE IT!

Did I ever tell you that I LOVE MY LIFE??? God is good! All the time!

First some big news! I opened a 100 Square Foot Booth in a local Antique Market here in Oklahoma City? I did. It's been a LABOR OF LOVE (and longtime coming). It's been over twelve years since I've had a 'physical space' in which to sell my wares. I'm about worn out from all the moving and hauling... Time will tell how much I continue to LOVE IT! More news and some pictures about this soon.

How about this one...

They Can Happen To You

Did I tell you that I sent out my very first WHOLESALE ORDERS on my Cookie Cutter Keepsake Cards? I did! I am proud to tell my Southern California Peeps they can now find them in both Orange, California at THE TEA LEAF COTTAGE and will soon be carried in a sweet Shoppe in Fullerton called THE COTTAGE ROSE. Thank you to both Joan and Patsy for showcasing my work (and for Sweet SALESPERSON of the Year). :)

I might also add...I will be carrying the Cookie Cards on Etsy later this week and eventually on my Website! If you'd like to order them just EMAIL ME! Special pricing on Wholesale Orders, too! These sweet little pretties are great for FAVORS and Teacher Gifts, etc.!


Getting Rid of the Junk in my Trunk

After DRAGGING my feet (more like my BUMM!) for far too long I've decided to join Weight Watchers. The time has come to finally rid my body of the extra 15 pounds I've gained over the past decade. I've opted to do the ON-LINE PROGRAM because the whole "Meeting Thingy" is just NOT FOR ME!! I'm lovin' it so far!!!! WHOOOOOO HOOOOOOOO! So far I'm down 7.5 pounds. Maybe I'll up my goal to 20lbs. :) :) :)


('ve gotta read!)

Don't forget about the DRAWING for the Sachet Pillow! The winner will be announced later this week! Make your comment, follow along, post the link, upload my button, etc. for a chance to win something for FREE!

Want to know something else??? I'll be drawing three extra names from MY FOLLOWERS LIST ONLY! But's a secret! :)

Blessings to you as you begin a fresh, new week! It very well may be the best one of your entire life...Rebecca

you are so busy that I am exhausted just reading about it!! Congratulations on everything...esp. the 7.5lbs. That was probably the hardest one. The rest a labour of love. Take care sweet Becks, have a great day..jj

Dear Rebecca,
I'm so happy I found your blog.. I simply adore it. I find it amazing beyond words. I LOVE ROSES too. Everything in your blog is so well arranged, from the soft colors to the lovely vignettes, and from the beautiful pics to the posts. Could a blog be any more perfect? So perfectly romantic. Just my cup of tea!
Oh my, I would very much like to win your give-away. Is the drawing also open to bloggers coming from overseas? I'm from Italy...
As per your instructions I have linked your blog button and your give-away button to my blog.
I love shabby chic, vintage and nordic home decor. Love roses more than anyother flower and, since none ever gives me any roses :( I often times buy myself bouquets . It's not the same thing but I like it all the same.
I'm very fond of antiques, laces, linens, old ribbons and silk flowers, especially old millery ones, love china (tea, coffe sets, and plates with rosey decor are my fav) and certainly I'm forgetting something else among my fav things which you will certainly find out if you have some time to drop by my blog
Needless to say that I hope to meet you there. And, do not forget to leave a pink rosey comment to let me know you were there.
I'll come and visit your blog as often. Meantime I'll go on reading your older posts.
With warm wishes
PS Sorry about this lengthy post - hope you didn't fall asleep while reading LOL.

My Goodness, you have been a busy bee. Congratulations on all fronts - the store, your tea project, and losing weight.
You are being so productive and and inspiration for me at my plodding, tortoise pace in my kitchen:-).

Marsha @ Tattered Chick said...

Congratulations! Wow, a booth, wholesale orders and losing 7.5 pounds, whoo-hoo, you go, girl!


Tara said...

It sounds like you've been a busy little bee! Congrats on your new space, how exciting for you and for filling your first orders on your cookie cutters. You must be one happy lady! Good for you for losing some unwanted poundage. I found myself with an extra 15lbs a couple of years ago and started walking 20-25 minutes 4-6 times a week and have since lost it all. I feel better too and start craving the outside time if I miss more than a couple of days.

Hope you week is wonderful and can't wait to see your giveaway results!

Hello, Rebecca,
You do lead a very full and active life and this is a wonderful thing! I am so glad your cookie cutters are taking off! I think they would make perfect gifts for teachers, friends, and family. Enjoy the rest of your week! Blessings to you! Vicki

Linda said...

What an uplifting blog today! Things are definitely positive, and life is good even with all of our troubles. You worry about your dad and I worry about my daughter. She will have an MRI on this coming Thursday to see what is going on with her brain. Say a prayer for me if you will as she is only twelve. They are just making sure that those migraines aren't being caused by something else. Have a great week!

As you know, Rebecca, I have enjoyed your progress in opening your new 'shop' ... & wish you all the success you may have. No doubt it is absolutely breathtaking, so you need to share some pics that we can drool over.

I heard the cookie cutters are already sold out in the one CA shop ... we need pricing so we can order for Christmas gifts & you can prepare yourself for the massive orders you are going to have for them.

What a wonderful achievement with the Weight Watchers ... how is the food? You're done well.

I think I need to go I to bed, I am worn out reading about how busy you are ... chuckle!

May the angels shower blessings upon all your new ventures.

Hugs of love, TTFN ~Marydon

I would love to win your beautiful gift. Everyone would!!!

I swear, Sweet Rebecca, your days have 36 hours. I can't figure out how you have the energy to do all that you do. If I get one pillow done a day it's a great day....I think I must waste some time?

Congrats on alllll of it!

Can't wait to see the space and wish I lived nearby. Who knows, maybe I'll just have to make the trip?

What a busy lady you are. I'm tired just reading about it. LOL! Congrats on the weight loss. I just joined Weight watchers 2 weeks ago and I have dropped 16 lbs. Wish I only had 15 lbs. to lose, try tacking on a zero to that, whew! With God's help we will do it, weather it's 15 or 150. It is a good program. Keep track of those points girl.
