I'm Feeling the Love!!

Hello, Dear Ones! Have I told you how much I love you and the Land of Blog? I am simply amazed at the most wonderful giving hearts in our community! I received a package in the mail, opened it up and saw this most darling card! Isn't it sweet? I must tell you though, I couldn't let Chloe Dawn see it. She is so offended at seeing her Mommy hold anything 'kitty'. If you don't know, Chloe Dawn is my little fuzzy faced dog.

Now on with the show...the package was from my sweet friend Dear Phyllis at Around the House. If you don't know her, please pay her a visit and tell her I sent you. You'll be amazed at her beautiful blog!

Look!! The most precious mug you've ever seen. And Dear Ones, this is a big 'un! I could put flowers in this! Oh, I'll really get my hot tea buzz on with this darling mug.

Do you see why Phyllis said my tiny name was written all over it? Be(e) a Sweetie! I love it!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Phyllis! This is just so perfect and I love it!


I won a giveaway from our Dear Jan at Rose Haven! Dear Jan was decluttering some of her craftinesses and had a few giveaways and I won this one! Crochet patterns. I love this stuff!

Now look at this one! Do you think she poked this one in just because I'm a very new Grandma? :) Oh, I've got to get out my crochet needles and go to town! Thank you so much Jan for choosing my tiny name. If you don't know Jan, please go by her lovely blog and tell her I sent you!

Then...I'm so thrilled to tell you I won another giveway from our Dear Teresa at Grammy Girlfriend! This darling package arrived at my door step. Isn't it just the cutest thing?

I just love Mickey and friends!

Look at all my loot! I'm loving this stuff!

A wonderful cookbook and I love simple cooking!! I'll be cooking more for Mr. Precious!

Then this beautiful bookmark! It will be put to good use.

Cards, cards, cards! I have already sent a couple of them. There are cards for all and any occasions!

Thank you so much Teresa! I am so appreciative that you drew my tiny name. Pop in to see Teresa and I know you'll love your visit with her.

Again, my heart is so full of love and thankfulness to you sweet bloggers who give so much. Please don't forget...

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

The Winner Takes It All

I don't wanna talk
About the things we've gone through
Though it's hurting me
Now it's history
I've played all my cards
And that's what you've done too
Nothing more to say
No more ace to play

The winner takes it all
The loser standing small
Beside the victory
That's her destiny

I was in your arms
Thinking I belonged there
I figured it made sense
Building me a fence
Building me a home
Thinking I'd be strong there
But I was a fool
Playing by the rules

The gods may throw a dice
Their minds as cold as ice
And someone way down here
Loses someone dear
The winner takes it all
The loser has to fall
It's simple and it's plain
Why should I complain.

But tell me does she kiss
Like I used to kiss you?
Does it feel the same
When she calls your name?
Somewhere deep inside
You must know I miss you
But what can I say
Rules must be obeyed

The judges will decide
The likes of me abide
Spectators of the show
Always staying low
The game is on again
A lover or a friend
A big thing or a small
The winner takes it all

I don't wanna talk
If it makes you feel sad
And I understand
You've come to shake my hand
I apologize
If it makes you feel bad
Seeing me so tense
No self-confidence
But you see
The winner takes it all
The winner takes it all...
~ sung by Abba

I buy cards just because I like them and I have even framed one. Love your blog, Shelia and send hugs. Deb

    And as for the Den. YOU mean I have to wait 10 more years... Its been 25 already... Oh Well, I will keep on sweetly asking him to paint it. I will bring him to your blog to show what ours could look like. Maybe that will do the trick.

    Gods Blessing to you and your family.

I have been trying to leave you a comment and it was locked up or something. Glad it is finally letting me leave one. I also love your bookcase shelves in the post before this one. You really do have a wonderful eye for displaying your goodies on those shelves. Love that little doggie and that is really neat how you turned one into a lamp!

    Have a great weekend!

  47. Shelia, I had to giggle, that cup does have your name all over it!!


  48. I miss Chloe Dawn. She hasn't posted in quite a while. Maybe you could talk her into to posting something one of these days?


  49. Good morning Shelia, Just a Sunday morning visit to wish you a happy day. Did you find the magazine yet? I have to order it on the net. I hate waiting. The biggest store in our town is Walmart. sigh! The nearest big shopping is 90 miles from here. However, we love living here in these lovely mountains. I read your comment on Anne's post. Smile.

    Happy days to you dear Shelia.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  50. Hi Sheila,
    Oh you got tons of good stuff! The cup was just perfect for you and the little crochet outfit would be so cute on your sweet little granddaughter!


I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
