All things new again

Can you believe that we are already approaching the end of another week? Where does time go?? It's probably just me, but it seems as if I no sooner get up than it's already two days later... The good news about that is, we are speeding closer to Spring - Thank You Daddy!!!

Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous here so I took advantage of the lighting and had a full day of photography for a multitude of reasons. The best reason was for the fun of it all! 
I also worked on the Etsy store and unearthed a few things left over from my booth so I photographed them too. 

I also got busy working on another set of chalkboard tags and I gotta tell ya', it was just slightly hard to list these. Let me know what you think of them, ok? I so appreciate comments and your thoughts - it helps in more ways than you know. 

On another note, I recently received this precious award from sweet Rosetta over at The Romantic Rose.
Thank you Rosetta for your thoughtful kindness of passing this on to me. If you have not met Rosetta, go visit her in her lovely home in Italy. She is fragrant with love and dreaminess all throughout her beautiful home. She has developed quiet the creative eye in her displays. 
I'm supposed to pass this along to other bloggers and this is always the hardest part. So here goes:

Heidi over at Sugah Beez
Kelly over at Till Death Do Us Part
Maggie over at The White Farmhouse

In addition to passing I'm to tell of that one day when blogging clicked for me. Well, that is actually much harder to specify because it just evolved through a series of events and others.  
Before I close, I want to leave a rose for all of you who are so kind to stop in for a visit and for all the thoughtful comments you leave. It really does make my day, so here is to you - Thank You!!
