Humbled and Speechless

Hi Everyone~

My husband just came in the house with our mail--and guess what awaited me--these 2 stunning pieces by 2 of my wonderful blogger friends!

The first is a gorgeous piece of mixed media art by Michele at Art from the Well. (Little did Michele know that these colors match my house!) Don't you just adore that chic crown made of fabric?

And next I opened this package from Debra and Nicole at Maison St. Germain...I about flipped! It is one of their vintage-style lace purses. In fact, Debra and Nicole host Blogger's Bodega every Tuesday--it is a fabulous blog event. And right now, they have a giveaway for one of their gorgeous purses, so hop over and enter and say "hello" from me!!!

All I can say is "Thank you so much." I am indeed grateful for such SPECIAL treasures from such BEAUTIFUL friends.

Oh Cindy Sweetie...
How beautiful are these gifts of love. I love your mixed media art. How beautiful is that swoop of hair and her crown. Looks just like you my precious friend. I love it.

That purse is so darn cute. I love the little zip of lace at the bottom. How fun it looks. That little flower is definitely the crowning touch.

You are so giving of yourself sweet friend. You deserve nice things right back at you.

Hope you are having a wonderful week. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
