~ I'm SOOOO Blessed ~

Morning dear friends out there!  Hope you are all enjoy the cooling weather!  I always dread this time of year and the seasonal changes due to HOW I feel.  I just am a WARM weather girl!

Anyway, I haven't posted as much over the past week cause I am very busy helping plan a LARGE luncheon for 100+ girls at my daughters school this Thursday.  I have 2 very dear friends who are my rights arms through all of this.  So I snuck in early this morning so I could post.

Last week I was so thrilled to share with you the Beautiful apron that Connie of Living Beautifully sent me.  Oh I just LOVE to look at the wonderful piece of work hanging over the door in my Kitchen every day!!! It just gives me a GOOD feeling!

Well...Yesterday in the mail I received yet again another sweet gift from my friend Katie of KATIE's Tea Roses. Please go visit her sight, she is just the most creative gal when it comes to helping you plan parties.  She makes the most amazing Themed Tea Roses  party favors and much more and her ideas alway amaze me! 

Not only does Katie make wonderful party favors, she also works with her hands.  She quilts, sews and does the most wonderful handiworks I have ever seen.  So when I open my unexpected package from her, it brought tears to my eyes.  I know she also is dealing with some physical limits herself and that's why this gift touched me so deeply! 

I paint blue birds, love hearts and my name begins with *L*...need I say more?  She MADE me the sweetest Pillowcase cover!!! So shabby sweet and....PINK!  She knew I have been having a rough time and that it often affects my she said when I have a tough night, I will at least have something PRETTY to put my head on.  Now, I don't know if I can *dirty* this up or not!  What a sweet friend indeed!

Thanks for allowing me to share this with you all! I am so thankful that GOD knows what we are going through and often uses people in our lives to encourage us and help along.  I am indeed a very blessed gal!

I love the ornaments you made! WOW, great job, and I am with you on the God and creative thing!

So happy you got to have a visit with your family out here, how is everything else going? Let me know how things are going with the economy in your area too, we are starting to see it here now, there used to be ZERO guys on the list at the Union Hall, now there are 19rows of men out of work, I praise God everyday that my hubby and boys all have jobs!
Bless you and have a great fall week, we are all wearing jeans and hoodies here too...
