In early February of 2008 I created this little blog of mine even though I didn't make my first Post for almost an entire year. I'm a little embarrassed to tell you that I was
One of the things I've grown to love about Blogging are the fabulous Bloggers that I meet along the way. Some are local peeps like Stacey from Poofing the Pillows (don't you just LOVE that name!) and then there is Ginger from Glitter and Roses and her daughter, Tammy from Tammy's Heart . They are all lovely ladies and I'm excited to tell you they hail from the very place "where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain"!
Another sweet lady who also lives not too terribly far from me is Miss Glenda from Serendipity Cottage. Just recently Miss G sent me a sweet little box packed FULL of the most amazing ribbons, trims and laces. I was more excited than I can say when I saw the treasures inside, but mostly I was taken back by her generosity. Thank you Glenda! I hope you will take the time to visit Glenda and the other Red-Earth lovin' ladies who all call the beautiful state of Oklahoma home!
Next I want to brag on another lovely blogger by the name of Donna. Donna from Brynwood Needleworks is an amazing artisan. I recently won a giveaway she was hosting and she gifted me with this BEAUTIFUL handmade strawberry sachet. It is completely hand embroidered and is full of delicate ribbon-work. Donna's work is absolutely stunning and I'm honored to have something fashioned by her talented hands. Thank you soooo very much Miss D!
Also tucked inside the box from Donna was this charming little notepad with a tea theme. I'm just crazy about it and couldn't wait to place it on top of my desk! I hope you will take time out to visit this lovely blogger. She has quite the following but I'm certain she's up for many more! Thank you again, Donna!
Now...the next person I want to tell you all about is a blogger by the name of Mary B. I've yet to meet Mary in person but I hope some day that will change! Not too long ago Mary (who lives in Texas) visited my little booth space here in Oklahoma and after purchasing a pictorial sachet left me the sweet vintage heart molds you see above! About a week ago I received this beautiful vintage framed needlepoint picture from her as well! Aren't they lovely? Thank you Mary B! You bless me and the Light in your life shines on and on...
Thank you again so very much to these beautiful ladies who remembered me in such a thoughtful way. I hope you'll find time to stop in and say hello.
I'm hoping to share with you a mini lampshade tutorial later this weekend (or early next week). It's all about transforming something plain into something fan-tabulous! Hope you'll stop back by when you can!
Blessings for another lovely Summer day!
Love to you~
