First off -Thank You Lord for the Fall weather. I was sooooooo over 105!!! I know - I know - it's supposed to be back up to 90 tomorrow for 2 more days, but then go back down to NORMAL! Whew!
Second - While hopping through blogland found a great giveaway. Myrna from More Than Heirlooms is celebrating the grand opening of her new Etsy shop! She is giving away this lovely collaged mirror she created.
She has beautiful handmade items that will make you just drool. So pop over and take a look!
Lastly - I have some long overdue thank you's to send out. Dawn from Cottage State of Mind sent me the sweetest award. It is the Attitude of Gratitude Award.
I was kind of puzzled by it, but then once I read how Dawn phrased it - I liked it immediately.
"I realized being grateful is not just about being thankful for blessings you've received outright. It is also about finding that silver lining. Seeing the blessing where it's not obvious. Making lemonade instead of complaining about sour lemons."
I've been trying really hard to practice this! I look back over my posts and how often I've said this very thing. I cannot post it on my sidebar - Good ol' Blogger is giving me a headache with my sidebar lately - long story. But thank you Dawn.
Finally - I have never posted pictures of my pretty plaque that Ginger from The Gingerbread Shed gave me this summer when we met up in Utah. Here it is in it's very happy new home in a niche on our stairway. Thank you Ginger!!!!
And finally - last summer I found a treasure of a ledger book. And I told you it weighed at LEAST 20 pounds. well . . . close!
I'm done rambling! Off to visit Pretty Petals to see if she posted our last journal pages to work on! LOVE IT!!!!!
Have a wonderful day!
