Friends are the flowers in the garden of life ~

I received the most wonderful mail today ~ Tracey from Notes from A Cottage Industry sent me a precious friend package ~ what a sweet surprise!! We both try to encourage one another to be all that we can be, step out of our comfort zones and achieve our bliss!!

Peeling back the pretty tissue and seeing a glimpse of precious pink leather made my heart jump! I can remember seeing these sweet ballet shoes on her blog and here they are in my home!!! Plus a beautiful tag in the shape of angel wings and the most gorgeous rhinestone necklace. Thank you so very much Tracey ~ you know me well and I will indeed make something from these pretties!!

The beautiful bag from my tiny shopping spree at Paris Market ~ I've found that I'm so happy with the smallest of things now. Trinkets, papers, old photos . . . The letters are from @Home - Vintage General ~ I love that they look old.

Below that, some of nature's gifts from the streets of Savannah! I love having these tidbits to use in assemblages. I'm still finishing up some projects that I'm doing for publication.....but soon will be adding to my Etsy store again!!!

Just a few more shots of Savannah ~
I promise that's it though :)

Don't know why I'm so tired but I am ~ maybe it's because I'm not used to getting out much!!!

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday sweet friends ~
xxoo, Dawn

Good Morning Dawn!
Thank you for your pictures of Savannah. I have always wanted to go there, and your pictures are a treat!

You are so inspiring. I have shared your blogs with my mom who has been going through cancer treatments since December and you have been such a bright spot for her during a gloomy time.
Thank you for your generous sharing and God bless!

Don't you just feel blessed that we in The United States of America have such wonders to be seen of past grandeur and present dreams. What it all boils down to is we are PROUD TO BE AMERICAN!!!
God bless Dawn...

What a beautifully wrapped present you received! It's just gorgeous. It's clear that it's made with love. I'm glad that I don't need to pay for an expensive aeroplane-ticket to the United States. I can visit America on your blog!! Very interesting pictures of a nice place indeed. Thank you. Love, Marjolijn
