I've Got A Song In My Heart And A Thank You!!!

~Her name is Melody~

Do you ever know
just know in your heart
that someone,
for no reason you can fathom,
loves you..
loves you as a person..
loves you just because
you are you?

I have met many wonderful
bloggers in the past
year or so..
some that I know in
some that I know on
a more personal level..
that I know from
Yuku that was
my inspiration to start blogging.
Had I NOT started
I would not have met
all you wonderful ladies
out here in

Now, down South,
in good old
 lives a wonderful soul.
Her name is
Cindy Adkins
and her blog is
Doesn't that name
just make you smile?

If you have NOT
visited her you need to
drop what you are doing
and head over there.
This is one
talented chick!
Not only that..
she is
and sweet..
and loving.

That love extended all
the way to Green Bay, WI.
I opened my mailbox
and if you look up
you will see what
was inside!
It is gorgeous.
Pictures do not do
There is so much
and richness..and
well~ let's just say
that what we used to
has gone to a whole
other level.
This is
pure and simple
And I love Cindy,
and I want to say
You made my day.

Her name is Melody
and she sits right by
my computer screen..
where I can smile
every time she
catches my eye.

Now...what are you
doing still here?
Go check out

(ps-when you get there-look at her
header-you might see a familiar
Hooray for me)

You're right as always. Melody's blog is beautiful and her creations are inspirational. Thanks for the recommendation! Did you know that when my spell checker spell checks my writing and I've written your blog name it comes up to change to to Canadians. I laugh my head of every time!

I was in here real quick this morning but wasn't signed in, so I'm back to heckle you.
I went in and checked Cindy out, too. Cute blog.
Congrats on this cool lady! Melody is beautifully done.
Tired tonight- pushing too hard, but it's nice doing my own housework again- really it is.
I was in bed by 7pm last night! I'm trying to hold out until 9 tonight. but might not make it- LOL.
Hugs- Tete

My goodness, so much beautiful work! She certainly is a gifted crafter. How very sweet of her to gift you with such a lovely treasure.
But, it's not a surprise... because YOU are a lovely treasure!
Hope you are enjoying beautiful spring weather.
By the way, your brunch sounded so yummy and that sweet baby E is getting cuter by the day!
