Easter Blessings and The Winner Is...



I have been a bit reflective this week, thinking of all the blessings that I receive each day. I normally don’t use my blog as a personal journal but with Easter here I have to say that I relied on my faith this week to see my husband through heart surgery. Very unexpected as he is always the one telling me that I should be taking vitamins and of course stop eating junk food. Faith get's us through the most difficult and stressful times as well as making us take stock on how truly blessed we are.

The winner of our burlap King slip is Julie, from Being Ruby. I want to thank each of you for your wonderful comments and for participating in our giveaway. We really love doing giveaways as you may have noticed. It is our way of saying thank you for visiting our blog and becoming one of our blogging friends.

Happy Easter to each of you and we wish you many blessing.

Hurray for Julie. What a wonderful giveaway to win. I know , because I have won one !!!!
I'm so sorry to hear about your husband. What a difficult time you must have been through over the past few weeks.I hope that he is on the road to a full recovery.
I just realised, Michelle, that I have never followed you for some reason!! I don't know what happened there. I bought things from you before I had a blog and then, when I found that you had one , have read your posts and emailed you but forgot to follow you !!!! It's my age ! I have made ammends now. I'm so sorry.
I wish you and your family a most restful Easter weekend, and I will be thinking of you and your husband. Lots of love. XXXX

First, my heart is with you as your husband recovers from his surgery. Remember, every journey begins with one single baby step. Godspeed!
Second, I spent a most enjoyable morning purchasing pillows from your gorgeous Etsy site. I can't wait to receive them. I know they'll look beautiful on our guest bed!
