Oh! Loving the houses! How cool! And arenĀ“t you lucky?! One day feeling down, the next day, you get TWO thinking-of-you-packages in the mail. (Well, almost. At least one) Have a great day, my dear friend! You deserve it all! Good days, sunshine, happiness and fun-mail!

We refer to those unexpected, smile inducing expressions of love as "happys." I am loving Julie's art & the pouch you won from Waterstone!


Lucky You! Even tho I don't comment much, I do visit you everyday and love all the cheery, fun color you post, SO MUCH! It's a treat. Naomi

This was very sweet to share.


thank you Michelle, for sharing your art and your story with us- so fun to follow your journey! xo (think I may do a giveaway too!)


Congratulations on winning that little pouch! I hope you enjoy carrying it. Getting little presents in the mail is simply the BEST! Have a great weekend.
