My One Year Bloggaversary Giveaway!

Hello, Dearest Ones! On June 26, I celebrated my one year anniversary in the Land of Blog! I can hardly believe it! You have all been so kind to me, encouraged me, made me laugh, made me cry, gave me recipes to make me fatter, gave me inspirations for decorating my home, allowed me to copy cat you, and even helped me to become a better photographer (at times) ! I just love you all so much and thank you for being a part of my life and visiting my tiny blog! I know I come across as a real silly, and I guess I am, but I care deeply and appreciate each and every one of you who take the time to comment here. I really do try to comment back to every one of you! I know how it feels to visit blogs and comment and comment and the person doesn't return the courtesy. I believe in manners and feel there are manners to be had in Blogland, don't you? I don't want to be that way. If for some reason I don't get back to you, it's just a mistake because I really really do try.

The tradition in Blogland is to give back to others when you're celebrating yourself! I wanted to make you something special with my tiny hands. I know I'm a few weeks behind, but LIFE, you know! ;) So...I've made you a pillow! I love to make pillows and wish I could make a hundred of them, one for each of you and a few to spare! But alas, there's only one!

Here is my giveaway pillow just for one of you! The fabrics are black and a light cream color.

There is a coordinating fabric ruffle on both sides...

I have machine applicaed a little bird for you on the front in the same fabric as the ruffle and added a little touch of black ric rac .

I wanted to make something special for you. I hope that when you look at this little pillow, you'll know how much love I have put into it and when you see the little bird ~ you'll hear a little Note Song from me. I wish you all the best on entering my giveaway.

Please leave me a comment on this post and next Monday, July 13th, I will reveal the winner.

Good luck and know I love you all!!

You are a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Forever Friends

All around us things are changing
Seasons come and seasons go
Very few things last forever
Deep inside our hearts we know

We're forever friends
Bond by love that time can't take away
Forever friends caring in a special kind of way
Heart to heart and hand in hand
We'll stand until the end
Loves forever when your forever friends

We're all children of the father
In His keeping and His care
And the spirit that He gives us
Is the love we're meant to share

And though we know it's time to say goodbye
We will always be together
And here's the reason why
We're forever friends!
