It's been a rough time lately for my extended family as you may have read in a previous post about my brother's passing. This week my sister had to be admitted into the hospital for a barrage of tests, as she had been having back problems for several months which seemed to be exacerbated by the family stress. After a procedure, all is well with her now I am happy to report, and hopefully she can start getting her life back on track.
I wish to thank a few dear friends for gifting me this week, girls that many of you know well~as they are avid bloggers and internet retailers. My sweet friend Tara of Bella Pink~thank you for the gorgeous Vera Wang blue hydrangeas which I can't seem to find the photo of on my computer unfortunately.
Dearest Chris of Tutti Chic~another beautiful bouquet of Vera Wang~pink roses (mixed in with some of my own in the photo~from Whole Foods:-).
My lovely Canadian friend Joy of The Hope Jar for her lovely Hope Jar of Grief, that is filled with inspirational quotes for each day of the month. If you have yet to visit her website~please take a peek....she has amazing treasures and a great eye for design!
Thank you for the cards and emails, my sweet girlfriends mean a lot to me:-)
What are your weekend plans? I hope that the weather is improving where you reside now that Spring is upon us.
I have several projects on my plate to work on, but first I am going to tackle some Spring Cleaning of my CLOSET....which has been sorely needed for about 2 years now! Who needs 1,000 old t~shirts (not really that many, but it sure looks like it!) and at least 5 pairs of jeans that unfortunately will no longer zip? Off to Goodwill it will all go.....with times being tough for so many it's a great place to shop (and donate to).
I am excited to be working in tandem with Julie (thank you for the gift too Julie:-)~our Pastelle Paperie artisan.....on a special order for a customer's Bridal Shower, for several of our products. Will post pics of that later on.....the theme asked for is Pink and Black with a French twist. Will also be working on the Chandelier of the Sea, perhaps another Tea Cup chandelier if time allows, and some other projects as time allows.
I also need to bathe and groom the Fufu dog, and hopefully get some relaxing time in with the Mr!
Take some time for yourself this weekend.........and I leave you with this quote from my Hope Jar:
Learn from yesterday,
Live for today,
Hope for tomorrow
