I'm here with a gorgeous gift

Hi everyone! Hope life has been awesome toward you since I've last been around. Thank you for your patience and kind emails asking what's up with the long silences over here. Well, the truth is that since I got back from Michigan, I've been deeply involved with an ongoing and rather intense project (work kind of stuff.... boring and frustrating). I had hoped to post earlier this week, but someone decided to work from home all week which means no computer for me. More delay and well, you get the idea.

Sooooo, on a much happier note,  I finally have an opportunity to show you what I received a couple of weeks ago from a very talented and generous soul who sent me my Pay If Forward Gift. I was so excited to get this.... truly the spirit of Christmas as a small child. I had no idea what it would be, but I knew it would be awesome. The heart behind this gift is Danielle over at My Blessed Serendipity Life.
Don't you just love how she wrapped it in a vintage dress pattern and made the perfect touch with the newspaper flower? I sure do!

It's the perfect necklace for me! I just love it! As I told Danielle, if I had all of the necklaces to choose from, this is exactly the one I would choose. Did you notice the small heart dangling from the bottom of the charm with the words "spread love" over lace.... love that!

Thank you Danielle! I truly am loving this beauty and even more knowing that you made this work of art. Ya'll go over and say hi to Danielle and be sure to tell her what an awesome creation she made, ok? Hopefully I can soon get things more uh, organized and back on track over here and have some time to go a visitin' over at your place. It's on my calendar... somewhere amongst all the other behind stuff gotta do now should have done already.  ya'll pray for me..... ;))  Have a most awesome weekend, see you soon.  xoxo,

Amazing store

While I was in Michigan for little Sophia's birth, I made a quick trip over to Marshall, MI to visit the children's clothing boutique there. Directly across the street from the children's boutique is the most amazing antique store called "Amazing Grace". I have been there several times and every time I just drool over all the amazing stuff in there. Wanna see?

 Being there just inspires me to want to redo my entire house with this just fabulous vintage finds!
Hope you all have great success in your treasure hunting this weekend, can't wait to see what you find!

Hello World!

Hi Everyone!! I finally have a minute to introduce you to my newest Baby Love Two! Our little pink bundle of precious baby love finally made her arrival on March 16th. Here's our little Sophia Ellen,

Yes, my Baby Girl and Favor'est Son in law blessed me with the honor of naming little Sophia with my name. And yes, I did tear up as any joyful Nana would. Little Sophia was almost born in the backseat of her parents car which would had been just like her Nana being born in the back of the car! She took her time in getting here, but when she was ready, wow! A few pushes later, and here she was. Perfect, healthy and just beautiful. Mama and Daddy are just over the moon and can't stop smiling as they exude pure joy.
Sophia is tiny and oh so quiet. Her birth weight was 7 pounds, 2 ounces. Doesn't she look even smaller with her Daddy's hands around her? Baby Love One, Jackson, is not so sure about his new little sister as he told his parents to "put back" and "stop it" with Baby Love Two. Whada' ya' expect from our little Baby Love? ;))

The family has adjusted very well and all are doing great. Little Sophia is moving right along on her growth chart and even Baby Love One is adjusting to having her around. 
Our visit with them was of course, entirely to short, but I'm thankful to have been there with them to adore and love on them all. Welcome to our Family Baby Love Sophia!

It's a milestone Giveaway!

I had this post ready for several days now, but am adding a bit of news to it as we have had excitement over the weekend. My Baby Girl has been in labor since Friday night. She left the hospital under doctors  care and was at 3-4 centimeters along. She has a doctors appointment today and I'm waiting to find out when the doctor is going to induce labor. So either tonight or early tomorrow, I'm outta' here for Baby Loves' birth that will be scheduled for either Tuesday or Wednesday!!! Praise God!! 
Before I do, however, I did promise a little celebration because you really are special to me. If it was not for all of you who take the time to pass through here everyday, well, what's the point of having a blog.  I have met so many amazing, creative, thoughtful and personality plus people since I started blogging. You all make life so much more interesting to say the least. To celebrate reaching 100 people who have signed the Wall of the Beautiful and Chic, I'm giving away a little something.
The giveaway includes the teapot which is from the Flea Market Collection of Home Essentials, the Willow Tree picture frame and a little plate with its own stand, which reads, "We get by with a little help from our friends".
It's been a journey getting here. So often I've asked myself, what's the point. Then along comes the most unexpected comment of whom the writer of the comment directly encourages me to keep going - and I never told anyone about my doubts.
So when I found this plate, I knew I had to include it as well. 
To participate in the Giveaway is really easy. Leave a comment to throw your name in the hat for the drawing as I will be drawing a name on Wednesday March 16th. 
I won't twist your arm to follow, but if you do add your name to the Wall as a new follower, that'll get you the bonus of your name in the hat twice. If you blog about the Giveaway, well that'll get your name in the hat again as well. Because I've got a mountain to move , I'm going to be out of state , a few things to do, like cuddle Baby Love One & Two, I kindly ask that you comment for all of the above so I know who and how many times to add your name to the hat. 

Easy enough right? I'm off of here, got much to do before getting on the road. Have a wonderful day!
