Thank Yous and Sweet Treats


Recently I received the sweetest collection of treats in the mail from Jen at The Cottage Nest. Jen was one of 5 bloggers selected to compete in the BHG 24 Hour Challenge. For her project Jen designed and built a beautiful potting shed that doubles for outdoor entertaining. It's awesome and Jen thanked me with all of this just for cheering her on. Gulp.


Look at all of these pretty things! My very favorites are the birds and plastic rose. Jen is a Silver Bella gal and I am in awe of her creativity.

I also want to thank all of you for leaving me the most heartfelt, warm and enthusiastic comments on my last post about my essay being published in Romantic Homes. Your support means more to me than you can know. I am touched, thankful and feel very blessed.
