Life's little blessings....

Good morning all! Unexpected blessings are one of life's sweet joys. I ran into a friend in a thrift shop this week who had visited my website recently and knows what I love. She had a gift just outside in her car for whenever she saw me - these wonderful jars to embellish and some baubles and bits of jewelry, etc. Can't wait to do something wonderful with these.


Also, I am in the market for vintage "blossom" prints, like this old one I found recently. I saw a perfect one at The Pink Rose Cottage and should have snatched it up right then, but I waited too long as Holly said it sold quickly. If you see any, I'd appreciate a heads-up! I'm going to do a grouping of these in my bedroom.

Still making and listing some holiday items...can you believe Christmas is right upon us? Here's a set of hang tags I've listed. Have a blessed day friends!

Hey Melissa, Isn't it nice to have friends who are thinking of us? You are a lucky lady. I may have a blossom print for you. It's an old Hallmark Motto print. Take a look and see if it's what you are looking for. xo
