The blessings of friends ~

It's amazing this blogging world. How many blogs are there really???
But it's wonderful when we find one another ~
when we discover that we are kindred spirits,
that we love the same things and
that we totally relate to each other!!!

A friend will strengthen you with her prayers,
bless you with her love,
and encourage you with her hope.

Another image I thought you would love to use!

I'm in love with ruffles!!!
The mail came the other day and these pillows were featured inside ~
I thought to myself, "I just have to share them with everyone!!"
Aren't they luscious??? You may have seen them before but they were new to me ~

These curtains are from Urban Outfitters....ruffled goodness!!!

The flower? From Heaven above....

Josette of My Grama's Soul is having her very first giveaway ever!!!
I'm so excited for her, giveaways are fun for everyone!
~Just click HERE to visit her blog and comment ~

Thank you so very much for being so sweet to Ann of The Tin Rabbit!!!
I love her style and knew you would too....
plus she has a wonderful heart ~

Wishing you a great Tuesday precious friends!
hugs and love,

Hey Dawn. Love all those ruffles. It that one of your day lilies? They are so pretty. Thanks for sharing another giveaway. You always know about the best.

I was so happy to see you stop by today. I'm sorry to hear you're dealing with the ugly big D too. I'm sure this crazy cold and gray weather has had something to do with it. I'll be saying a prayer for both of us tonight. Thanks again for stopping by and cheering me up.

Love you, Tracy :)

Dawn you are right about the kindred spirit thing among us bloggers....it is SO much fun and reassuring.... knowing that when we talk to each other about our collections and passion for them...each of us are "getting it".

The pillows are oh so cute, but the shower curtian... LOVE IT TONS!!! Anthro had one like it for a lot of money, wonder how much this one is. I need Wal-mart to do a knock off.
Happy Tuesday Friend,

Suzann said...

LOVE that shower curtain. The texture of those ruffles would be the perfect addition to my simple bathroom. Lucky for me there is an Urban Outfitters 10 minutes from here.
Friends and bloggers do seem to go hand in hand. Wonderful post!!

Vee said...

The ruffles from heaven are my fave. Perhaps you can convince me over time that ruffles are great.

Unknown said...

I'm in love with ruffles too! In fact, I found a white ruffled shower curtain at Goodwill a couple weeks ago and was beside myself with excitement. Thanks so much for the links!

Tami said...

Love those pillows!!

Joy Lett said...

I'm not a ruffle kind of gal but I do like the curtain. I had hoped to have some activity in my new space at High Cotton but the transformer went bad and there is no power= no lights = no painting. Hoping to get back on track later in the week. Hope things are moving along for Antique Griffin.

I'm having a bit of a love affair with ruffles myself. These are all stunning. Thanks for sharing!

My grandmother kept a round, pink ruffled pillow like that on her bed! It's nice to see such sweet things coming back in vogue. I'm getting ready to redo my bedroom and I think I need those curtains from Urban Outfitters. Hmmm, perhaps a trip down Ponce is in store for me. Oh, then a stop at Manuel's Tavern for homemade potato chips with horseradish sauce! Wanna come? ;)

My Grama's Soul said...

Good morning Dawn..Love the ruffles. I have had a pillow like that for about l5 years. I know it is in a closet somewhere.

Isn't it great how things ALWAYS come back in style if we can just wait long enough.LOL

Thank you again for being so supportive to the rest of us bloggers.

Beautiful post- it is so amazing to find kindred spirits. So many lovely lovely blogs to be inspired by. I love the vintage photograph.

Such a Wondrous Place this Faery Space said...

Fun pillows! Blessings.

Hello Beautiful Dawn: )

Love the quote, the ruffles and the sincere sentiment you always put across to us followers.

Kindred spirits....so true....before blogging, who knew there were so many of us out here? I've been blessed through my life with many wonderful freinds, but very few that I shared as much in common with as I do my "blog sisters".
Now that's what I call BLISS.....

Now I hope I can find time to practice that cute flower embellishments on today's artist class lesson....better get my chores done first.

hugs to you,

Dawn the ruffles are just too wonderful. I love anything with ruffles and ribbons. Theya re my favorite. Not sure if the flower is an orchid ornot, but whtever it is...it is LUSCIOUS. Seems like it could be replicated out of silk ribbon/fabric...hummm! Anyone for a challenge? Have a great day and thanks again for sharing with us all. Nancy in So Cal
