Hello, Dear Ones!
I've been so blessed lately and wanted to share with you some of my blessings!

 First of all, look at this darling pillow! Isn't it just precious? This was sent to me by my sweet friend, Sheila who blogs at The Quintessential Magpie. Why did she send it to me? Just because!
 She said when she saw this she just had to send it to me. You know I always end my posts with "Be a sweetie". Wasn't this just so sweet of Sheila? Thank you sweet friend.
 I am having a very hard time keeping my Tildas away from it. They think they are the sweeties! :)

 Then I entered a giveaway from Ron who blogs at The Uptown Acorn and I won!
He's so fancy he has his own special postcards!
 It was around Mardi Gras time and he offered this lovely gift ~ a toile printed tea towel and mug.
 Very elegant toile, don't you think?
A couple of my cow creamers decided they would help with the Mardi Gras colors - gold, green and purple. I told them it was very sweet of them but their shades were a bit off! :)
Thank you so much Ron !

If you don't know these dear ones, please pop on over and visit Sheila at The Quintessential Magpie and Ron at The Uptown Acorn and tell them I sent you!

Thank you again, Dear Ones!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

What A Wonderful World

I see trees of green........ red roses too
I see em bloom..... for me and for you
And I think to myself.... what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue..... clouds of white
Bright blessed days....dark sacred nights
And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world.

The colors of a pretty the sky
Are also on the faces.....of people ..going by
I see friends shaking hands.....sayin.. how do you do
They're really sayin......i love you.

I hear babies cry...... I watch them grow
They'll learn much more.....than I'll never know
And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world

The colors of a pretty the sky
Are there on the faces.....of people ..going by
I see friends shaking hands.....sayin.. how do you do
They're really sayin...*spoken*(I

I hear babies cry...... I watch them grow
*spoken*(you know their gonna learn
A whole lot more than I'll never know)
And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself .......what a wonderful world.

  1. You are one lucky lady. I wanted those Mardi Gras treats from Ron! I'm glad I at least know who is enjoying them. And that pillow, the cutest.

  2. What an adorable and sweet gift! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. Both are beautiful and wonderful surprises! That mug, especially, is gorgeous! Lucky you!

  4. Oh Shelia that pillow is the's a good thing we don't live close to one another because that mug and tea towel you won from Ron just might have gone missing!!

  5. Shelia, thank you so much for this thank you, and I was delighted to send you that pillow. Even Mr. Magpie asked when I showed it to him, "Is that going to your friend who always says 'Be A Sweetie?', he heartily agreed it was made for you. It had your name on it. And that sweet Karen Harvey Cox of A Scrapbook of Inspiration designed it. Remember her? She is a blogger who used to blog a lot on Pink Saturday. But it was if she designed it with you in mind.

    Boy, your other winnings are CUTE. What a great blog drawing. So glad you won!

    Love you,


  6. The tea towel looks great with the green and purple cow creamers. I am so happy you are enjoying them. Thanks for Jennifer of Mobile Toile for the give away. xo

  7. Such lovely gifts! The cows are perfect with the towels. And your Tilda's are having a pillow party!

  8. Love your sweet gifts.

    I have been reading a lot of different blogs where people are showing off random gifts they received. I myself received 3 different gifts from bloggers in the last few weeks and sent off several of my own. That was not something I expected when I began blogging, but it sure is fun.

  9. I love that pillow and it is so perfect for you! That Shelia is a doll. Oh Ron's blog is amazing and I'm so glad you won that giveaway! Your cow creamers are just so funny!
    hugs, Linda
