How blessed am I?


Blogging has been THE. most. wonderful. adventure!!!!
As I approach my 6 year blogiversary in early February,
I just can't believe how amazingly rewarding this journey has been!

The best and most wonderful reward??
The precious friends I've made here!!!
All. around. the. world!!
I'm so, so thankful for each and every one of you ~

I received a precious Christmas/Birthday package this week
and you know I have to share the goods with you!

Cindy of Lilly's Lace is such a sweetie....
she had been under the weather the first of the year but
thank goodness she's all well now.....
she gathered up some goodies,
mailed them to Georgia
and it all has just blown me away!!!

I was able to meet Cindy in person
at a class I taught last March in Texas and
we knew immediately
that we were kindreds!!
I just have to tell you something, I sure do love those Texas gals....
they are so, so precious and they are REAL!

ANYWAY...
look at all the loot my sweet friend Cindy sent me:



Wonderful old photos...



A great Miranda Lambert CD!
Yummy old lace...doilies...a cigar box filled with vanilla buttons too!



Yes, you see right...a Michael's gift certificate and some mascara ~
I LOVE me some Michael's and mascara too!!!





I'm sorry, but isn't this girl beautiful??? I really did love the CD too!




AMAZING, right????
She is such a precious soul....
Thank you so very much Cindy ~ I love it ALL SO MUCH!

And my sweet DIL Emily posted a few pics on Facebook of the babies
and I just have to share them with you!

Clara is working on her little fairy houses...
her mama loves fairies just like me too!





Murray is now FOUR months old and bouncing around in his Jumperoo!!!
How in the world did THAT happen???
My goodness, time is just a flyin' by!!!!




What a sweetie pie Murray is!!!
Just look at that face!
He's wearing a hat that my grandmother made for his daddy, Brent ~
and now it warms his precious head,
how wonderful is that???
My sweet grandma would be so, so proud to know this but
something in me know that she DOES know....




I will go ahead and tell you.
Clara is an artist.
She is almost three and colors in her coloring books like an eight year old.
She sees beauty in so many things....
And just look at what she made in her yard ~
and she even named him "Rocky"!





I hope you have the most wonderful Thursday....
and always, always see the beauty around you!

hugs and love,
Dawn

Oh my, where to start. What a wonderful gathering of objects you received. ALWAYS love the pictures of your grandkids.. growing to fast! How sweet they are..what a face on little Murray. And Clara...I can see she has creativity in her heart. Congratulations on coming on 6 years. I have loved reading your blog ever since I discovered. I look forward to seeing you newest post, usually right before I shut my computer off for the evening. The time difference makes that a nice good night for me. So, good night Dawn, happy Thursday.

So many things to comment on...wonderful gifts from your kindred spirit, which will keep you going for a while! Murray is growing so fast and how sweet that he wears the little hat his great-great grandmother made. Not one bit surprised to see how talented Clara is...the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree.
