Thanks

Hello, Dear Ones! I have a heart filled with thankfulness this morning. We have so many generous, wonderful ones in Blogland and I have been blessed by them.

First of all, I was presented with this award: Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award by my new blogging friend, Arlette, who blogs at Thammie et Compagnie
Thank you so much, Arlette, for thinking of me!  Please pop in to see her and look at her sewing skills. She makes dolls and dollclothes.


Then I was blessed to win a marvelous giveaway from Celeste who blogs at Southern Daydreams.
I was so excited when the package arrived! I opened it just as fast as I could and my gorgeous eyes spied these beautifully wrapped boxes.
 Look at this lovely paper. I almost hated to tear it up but I did. And, not to mention the tulley ribbons.

 Then she made this gorgeous card with the sweet words inside. Oh, my heart was melting!
 Then the gifts! Look at this little box she has embellished so beautifully! I love this and think it will go in my bathroom with special things in it!
 Oh, this is the cutest little thing you've ever seen! This is the teeniest tiniest little tin you've ever seen and Celeste painted on it! Darling! I already know where I'm going to use this!

 I also received this beautifully painted tin bowl. Celeste is so talented and paints wonderfully. She was even commissioned to paint some Christmas ornaments for the White House Christmas tree one year! Yes, she is the most famous one!
Then...
Look!! She threw this one in just for me! She knows me so well and knows I love Roosters. She painted this little Rooster board just for me and I love it! Isn't it just so ME? Thank you so much Celeste for the giveaway. If you don't know Celeste please pop on over and pay her a visit.

Thank you ladies so much for your generosity!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Blue Skies

 Blue skies smilin' at me
Nothin' but blue skies do I see
Blue birds singin' a song
Nothin' but blue skies from now on
I never saw the sun shinin' so bright, never saw things goin' so right
Noticing the days hurrying by, when you're in love, my how they fly by
Blue days, all of them gone
Nothin' but blue skies from now on
Blue skies smilin' at me
Nothin' but blue skies do I see
Blue days, all of them gone
Nothin' but blue skies from now on
Blue skies smilin' at me
Nothin' but blue skies do I see
Blue days, all of them gone
Nothin' but blue skies from now on
Blue skies smilin' at me
Nothin' but blue skies do I see
Blue days, all of them gone
Nothin' but blue skies from now on
