LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Happy Mother's Day !!!

Happy Mothers Day !! After all of the Internet connection problems I have had this month, last week my computer up and died. Poor thing was pooped out !!! lol So, I now have a Great connection and a newer computer, and hope to be visiting with you all again. :) My sweet Derby hat swap partner Priscilla sent me a Crown !!! And a REALLY pretty one at that !!! She also threw in a few goodies too. :) I Love this crown !! It is a soft cream, with vintage lace and glittered stars. :) :) :)
Isn't it perfection ??!!! Yummy !!!!! Also, a while back my dear friend Bertie was having a giveaway on her blog and I won this GORGEOUS basket !!! She made it just for me, with soft shabby roses. I just LOVE this pretty fabric !! Her work is exquisite, perfectly executed, not one drop of glue , she is a perfectionist and I am SO honored to have this. :) She handmade the medallion as well. She sells these on her website. :)


And finally, this is what I made for last week. I have a whole bunch of other items I completed that I will show in a few days. I have been very busy, although in major withdrawals from my bloggy friends. I cant wait to heat up a cup of decaf French vanilla cafe' and sit down and catch up with all of you. :)




Oh, could you not just eat her up !! :) I will have to pry her out of here as this tussie sold. :) Look at that sweet pouty face. I want to pinch her sweet cheeks. :)

Anyhow, that was my week. I have been walking the neighborhood every morning, trying to get in better shape to better counteract some of the pain. I do have some really good days here and there and I craft like a madwoman. :) I did find a great link about Costochonditris, this inflammatory thing I have, It was quite informative and helped me out greatly in understanding this disease. I say disease, although I don't know if it is categorized as such, but I have a Chronic version of it, meaning it probably will not go away. But, every morning I wake up, I am EVER so GRATEFUL that it wasn't something worse. It just takes a bit to get used to. Making myself stop and lie down throughout the day, is kind of hard, but a must. I was Miss, " No is not in my vocabulary" girl. And I am learning that it is ok and sometimes necessary to say no to things I cant do. This is definitely a growth season in my life and I am so TRULY Blessed to have all of you talented women to turn to for inspiration, prayer and sometimes just a laugh. :) ( I MISS ESTHER !!!) lol

Hugs,

Rhea

Your crown is stunning. It has been a while since we chatted and I'm sorry to hear that you are having some Yucky problems. One of my favorite quotes: " Reality is something we rise above." The reality is if we don't have a physical burden of some kind now....we will. You are in my prayers and thoughts dear blogger friend.
