A Little Gift From My Blogging Sister

    I received this journal and a pretty little calender from my Secret Blogging Sister. No, I don't know who she is, and I won't find out till December. But she sure is a Sweetie. Thank you Sweet Blogging Sister.  Mary, from  "Hope Filled Living" is the host. If you get a chance, you should check her blog out...she is just the sweetest person,  and such an inspiration when you need a pick me up or your down in the dumps.


 I was in  Amy's (Bumble Bee Cottage) Heart Of Winter Swap, And I had such a great swap partner...Margie, from Hungry Hook Prims! She really outdid herself and has spoiled me rotten. I couldn't wait to open it.
 All of these beautiful surprises. You really made4 my day Margie. I love the wooden bowl of hearts and the grubbied heart tin.
And when I first seen this hooked heart on Margie's Blog, I thought they were so beautiful. And look, I got one.  The picture does not do justice. The heart garland is so cute, and the tin vase with the berries is adorable. On the other side of the tag it says Love. I really loved everything, and what a great mid winter pick me up. Thank you so much Margie, you have spoiled me. And a big thank you to Amy...You are the Best!!!!

My Three Grandaughters and my oldest Daughter. Tristan, Erika(Mom), Bailey, and Madison.
  It is the quietest day I have had in so long, and I should be doing something constructive, Lord knows I have enough to keep me busy, but I am looking at photos my Grandaughter brought me. I love this one. Iam posting two videos of my family, and some pics are fun and some serious. This is my life. I have had a good life so far, but I have also had alot of pain and heartbreak also. I am just an ordinary person and I  love to read your blogs and your comments you leave me.  It makes my day a little brighter, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am not a good blogger, but I am trying. I am basically shy but am trying to over come that also. Someday I will post my crafts. Some of you have seen them,and I hope to be as good as you gals someday. It better be soon, cause I am not no Spring chicken.

This is my Baby, Erin.   The three boys are my Grandsons. Morgan, Cooper, and Nickolas.
 They are all growing like weeds. But they sure are the sunshine of my Life.  They sure had a good time this day. What a mess they were!  I am going to go takesome pics of my thrift finds,and will post them later today. Hope eberyone has a sunshiny day!
