A Haven for Vee

Not Planning a Post...Until!

That's right. I am feeling so "under it" after the events of the weekend that I was just going to lie low today.

John came home for lunch bringing in a heavy package with a bright orange sticker. Immediately, my "under it" mood began to lift.

Becky from Hospitality Lane has sent me candles...lots of them to enjoy! She sent Citrus Infusion, Country Apple, Apple Cinnamon, Cranberry Balsam, Candy Cane, and Cucumber Cantaloupe, which is burning right now as I type this up. Hmmmmm... You can find her candle shop on her sidebar and I'm putting that information on my sidebar as well. She also sent a card with the sweetest message that means the world to me. Thank you so much, Becky! You've pulled my sorry little self out of a slump for sure. John thanks you, too!


  1. How sweet of Becky! Hmmmm.... I think I'm feeling a little low... Maybe I need to visit her! Have a great week! God is in control!!!

  2. Oh how lovely...hope you are feeling perkier soon :)

  3. Vee,

    I am glad they arrived safely. They spent a bit of time in my sun warmed van before they got to the post office and I was concerned....sigh.

    You were very creative with the photos. Fun!


    Becky K.

  4. How wonderful. I am going to check on the cucumber canaloupe. Sounds great. Hooray for Becky K.

  5. Yummm...the names all sound so inviting! That package arrived just at the right time...I think you needed a little lift.

  6. An unexpected surprise came to lift your spirits. How lucky you are. I bet your home smells real good!
    Take care and feel better.

  7. dear vee,

    i am so sorry you have had a
    hard weekend and cannot
    imagine how you do all that
    you do!

    what a sweet friend to send
    you all those candles.

    i pray they are the beginning
    of many happy surprises.


  8. I'm so glad that your spirit was lifted when you opened the package from Becky! I won one of her candles before Christmas '08, I loved it. She is a sweetie!!!


  9. What a sweet friend Becky is Vee, for thinking about you. So glad your spirit was lifted. I needed a lift today after what happened yesterday.

  10. How sweet! And glad that it helped to lift your spirits. I am not feeling well today either and quite saddened by the turn of events this weekend. {{{hugs}}}

  11. Hi sweet Vee!!! I'm so very glad that your lovely gift lifted your spirits! I love candles and I'm betting your home is so yummy smelling right now ~ hugs and love dear friend, Dawn

  12. Yes, Vickie, Sue, and Donna, I think that we are suffering from the same affliction.

  13. A thoughtful friend...and candles! You just have to feel better! I love the interesting scents! I'm off to look at her site! Thanks! And I'm sending you HUGS tonight! Hope that makes you feel better, too! ♥♥♥

  14. Sorry to hear that your weekend had you feeling bad. Becky's kind gift arrived at a perfect time, it seems. The names of the candles sound quite yummy. Your photos of them are very pretty. Enjoy.

  15. What a wonderful surprise! I hope you feel better soon. Isn't GOD great the way he works through others. Just when we are feeling under the weather he sends us a little angel with a gift or a kind word. Then we are up and feeling like ourselves again.

  16. I do hope your back feels better soon. Also, am thinking of your mom - makes my want to weep.

    Candles - I have never figured out whether it is the scent or the combination of the flame and scent that makes us feel better.

    Glad you had a laugh with your grandmother.

  17. I am having a "Blue Monday" giveaway at my blog, Cottage Cozy! Stop on over for a peek. Maybe it will add a little cheer.

    Wishing you a terrific week!

    Stay Cozy, Carrie

  18. What a nice surprise! Isn't is just too great to have friends that care, listen and are there for you? Lucky you. Lucky me. Lucky us :-)

  19. MMMMmmmmm...the names of those candles sound so delightful! Enjoy them, Vee, you deserve them!

    PS MY favorite opera is the next one that I will be seeing at the end of this month. There is going to be an added excitement for me this time as someone I know from blogging is making their debut in it! Stay tuned! :-)
