Such generous blessings ~

I really feel that way....that these gifts from friends are such blessings ~ I'm so amazed at the goodness here in blogland. It is running rampant and overflowing!! Sweet, kind Madai of Forget-Me-Nots from Wren Cottage sent a wonderful package and it arrived today!

The gifts inside are so wonderful....some for Clara and Emily and some for myself....what an angel Madai is! Look at the beautiful princess banner for Clara's room! And the grandmother book, lavender soap, speckled eggs, sweet carrots, baubles and tags, and another beautiful book about babies with gorgeous antique images. And one of the sweetest gifts of all?? A CD that Madai made for baby Clara....with lullabyes and sweet, relaxing songs. I love it so much I'm going to get Brent to make me a copy of it!!

Thank you so very much Madai, we love each and every gift so much....I can't wait to read my book!

And this dear friends, was in my Grandmother book that Madai sent....and it is so very wonderful and EXACTLY what I wish for YOU! (Click to enlarge and read a little better)

I have the most amazing news......I'm just about to bust with excitement!!!! Our 22 year old, Brad, told me that he's planning on moving to a loft apartment in the next few weeks to be closer to his college and do you know what that means???? The garage that he converted will be my NEW STUDIO!!!! I'm so excited!! Brad will make a loft apartment look incredible and he will love being back out on his own ~ I'll be sure to keep you posted on the progress of my new room!

If you'd like to pop over to Dawn's blog Art of Humungous Proportions, I completed a little interview with her yesterday and it's on THIS POST ~

Wishing you a great Friday sweet friends!

xxoo, Dawn

What a beautiful treasure you have there Dawn. I loved reading the interview too. Thanks for the link and of course, you are well deserving of the love and gifts which come your way.

The gifts are simply divine! Everything is soooo YOU (and Clara!)

Great news about your new studio -that must feel like Christmas all over again- having a place of one's own that can be fully utilized is a gift :-)

Wonderful treasures! The grandmother book looks special!

"Dearer than our children are the children of our children"
I've seen this before. It's so true.
I love my grandbabies for the sweet little people that they are ~ I love them even more because of the glimpses I see of my children in them. It's hard to describe what a grandbaby does to you. But ~ what a blessing ~ you'll be finding out very soon!

Excellent about your studio!

All your goodies from Madai are wonderful. I also have that grandmothers book & love it. With all the goodies from your friends,the shower, & things you have bought... I don't think Clara will need a thing. She is a lucky little girl. And congrats on getting to enlarge your studio. I know you'll miss Brad but be soooooooooooooo happy about the space.

What a lot of lovely gifts Dawn, so wonderfull with friends and loving people.
And then the other gift:new artroom, -I so understand how exited you are about that, I love my big room, (big but alwayes full all over with stuff)where I can work, without putting everything back in place all the time.
Ill read your interview now. Have a nice evening dear.
XOXO and love
