Sweet Surprises from Blogging Friends...

Well, I have been battling a cold/flu all week, and it has been winning for the most part!  But I am hoping a restful weekend will get me back to enjoying the summer!  I really appreciate all the get well wishes you have sent my way this week!  And I received some wonderful surprises from sweet blogging friends this week that have brightened my days!  Look at this FUN PUGS book I received this week from my sweet friends KarenSue of  SueBee  and Ann of The Boston Lady !  They know how much I love pugs (including our Sophie and Bailey) and thought of me when they saw this book!  It is full of such cute pics and great info and I just love it!  Thank you so much ladies~ it was SO kind of you and brought a smile to my face!

Another WONDERFUL surprise this week was from my ever-so-thoughtful friend Cindy of
Cindy Adkins Whimsical Musings!
She sent me two of her beautiful tags!  She creates such lovely artwork and is such a generous person!  She's also hosting a fun giveaway  right now!  Be sure and check out her etsy shop ,too!
Thank you so much, sweet friend!

This week I purchased these great old dance tickets from lovely Heidi of Dreams Intertwined.  She has a wonderful etsy shop full of interesting ephemera... I just LOVE these!

The package arrived in fun wrappings and she included some WHIMSICAL surprises, too!

Look at all these GOODIES!

Thank you so much, Heidi~ you are such a sweetheart!  I hope you'll visit these ladies wonderful blogs, too!  I feel SO blessed to have made so many nice friendships on the blogs!
