Sadly all good things must come to an end. Life becomes soo busy and hectic at times that we find ourselves with less and less free time.
I work full time and am trying to grow my little home business slowly so sometimes something just has to give.
For me that was my ongoing commitment to Among The Gumtrees. It was a wonderful ride that we all took together and was an absolute blast . We achieved so much in 20 months and best of all I made some wonderful friends in Jenny, Joy, Vicki, Dawn, Vikki & Cheryl.
I know that you all understand and our "giving" will continue but just from our personal blogs in the future. So HERE is my second block in "Things We Love" it is "Home Sweet Home".
As most of you would know I love my home - It is not just a house to me but rooms full of love and memories. A haven for my family and friends and a place I just love to be.
My home is filled with precious treasures both thrifted and given and includes this wonderful gift I received in the mail today from my lovely friend Mary. Isn't it just the sweetest little bag?
And look what was inside....... A sweet little cat brooch. I love it Mary - You are such a kind sweet lady that I luckily have had the pleasure to meet.
And yesterday I was blessed with this gorgeous cushion made for me by my darling buddy Maree. She has the sweetest heart and I just adore her. I wish you could smell this cushion - It smells of the sweetest roses. I have it sitting on my stitching chair so I can enjoy it's scent at night whilst I stitch.
This lovely handmade set of rosary beads was sent to me by Jen who also blessed me with some other gorgeous goodies that I will show you another day including the cutest little cup and saucer - But you'll have to wait until I take some pics - LOL.
I am a sentimental gal and love to keep all of my notes and cards so here are the 3 cards that my gorgeous daughters gave me for my birthday.
This one made me giggle and is from Miss Amy (12)
And a beautiful card from Sam with a lovely verse
And this one from Miss Kaitlin (17) I found under my pillow on the eve of my birthday.
She signed it Cakey as that's what the grand babies call her and it has just stuck. These lovely cards I will treasure forever. I am so blessed - Gorgeous Husband, Wonderful Kids, Fantastic Friends and a Happy Home - What more could I ever want?
Love and Hugs
PS. I will be back tomorrow with the promised FREE Flowers of Love Part 10
