Feelin' the Love Again

Hello Dear Ones and I truly hope you've had a wonderful weekend. Our weather has actually cooled down into the 50s and I'm just loving it!! I would like to thank you all who placed bids on my tablerunner that I submitted for the auction for Valorie from Visual Vamp and hosted by Laura from Decor to Adore.

And the winner is Deborah from Fairfield House!
Congratulations, Deborah.

I wanted to share with you a couple of giveaways I won a few weeks ago!! Oh, I just love giveaways don't you? I just feel so special when ever I win one. Yep!! I'm feelin' the love!

Do you recognize this lovely lady? I know she looks a little like a black and white illustration, but really this is Angela from Sew Loquacious Blog. I won her giveaway and want to show you all the goodies I received!

Loads of treasures...

Sweet card...

Two pieces of darling fabrics and a pattern for this adorable bag! I love it!

Then all kinds of scrapbook embellishments that will help me get back to scrapping!

Then a wonderful 'Thank You' stamp!! Thank you so much, Angela, for drawing my tiny name!!


Then I received another giveaway from this most beautiful one!!
This is Martha from Mid-Atlantic Martha and I won her giveaway! Woo Hooness, Bloggy love!

Wonderful books - very Southern books! :)

Sweet note on an adorable paper.

Look at this title and then the sub title...I love this stuff!! Oh, course, like Martha said, I was the most perfect Southern Mother! Don't you laugh! No, no Nannette! I was, I really was! :)

This is such a hoot! Did your mother ever tell you this? Mine did and she started with 'Stand up straight'. That was probably because I was so short! :)

Great advice and I can't wait to get started reading these. Thank you, Martha for drawing my most tiny Southern name.

I just love this stuff and I love Blogland and I love Angela and Martha!! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~


I welcome the sun,
the clouds and rain,
the wind that sweeps the sky clean
and lets the sun shine again.
this is the most magnificent life has ever been.
here is heaven and earth
and the brilliant sky in between.

blessed is this life
and I'm gonna celebrate being alive.
blessed is this life
and I'm gonna celebrate being alive

I dwell in the darkness
I let in the light
I sleep in the afternoon
and become the noise in the night
I trespass in temptation
suffered in sacrifice
but I awake each day with a new sunrise

blessed is this life, oh
and I'm gonna celebrate being alive
blessed is this life, oh
and I'm gonna celebrate being alive

  1. Hi Shelia,
    Ooh, I'm the first to comment. So here goes.
    I love your big bunch of goodies. I would spend lots of time browsing through all that and be happy as a pig in mud! Yep, my Mom used to tell me to stand up straight, moisten my lips and suck in my tummy! Must be why I turned out so nice....LOL!

    hehe. I am a Northern Mom and I still tell my daughter those things. Just today we went shopping and I told her to pick something out with some color.
    She was not amused.
