Today's Bouquets

Affirmation strokes the soul. It doesn't resolve the major "stuff," but it encourages one to stay the coarse. For instance, on Sunday, my friend René surprised me with a Mickey Mouse pin, collector's penny, and a mug big enough to hold seasonal soups! The occasion? I took a quiz that identified me with Mickey.

Yesterday, an English transferware gravy bowl arrived from Miss Shabby! Included was a vintage photo of 2 bitter looking biddies. Someone should have prodded those women to make them smile. Well, at least I smiled.

Then, like luscious-butter-frosting on a chocolate cupcake, Arlene of The Tea Room gave me the "I love your blog" award. Not only am I honored, but I'm pooled together with ladies whom I admire tremendously. Arlene runs a classy blog with boun-tea-ful inspiration and trimmings. She has been extremely supportive on what I do here. Thank-you, Arleen!

And, so I pass this award on to:


  1. KJ, you are right. Thank you so much. I did see Beverly's blog and missed my name. Now you know how tired I am from all that company. I just mentioned to my dh that this was the first night in two weeks we didn't have someone here with us. I appreciate your award so much. I will post it on Thurs. Tomorrow is all done. Have a great evening, what is left of it. Smile.

    Hugs, Jeanne

    Big hugs,
