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

Valentine's Day is LOVE

I shared the other day that I am on the receiving end of a LOT of love. I have no idea what I did to be SO blessed, but I TRULY am. It isn't the "Stuff" , it is the people behind the "Stuff" that Bless this heart. I cant tell you how each note and box has filled my heart to bursting. I think of Wayne and Garth, " I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy" Truly I am not. I did nothing but walk into the path of some very sweet Women.

First, Jen, My Hugs and Glitter Girl :) She sent me a Valentine's box filled with Vintage Valentines, See's Candy, one of her Vintage style bottle brush trees, sigh...:), This SWEET birdhouse bedecked with tons of glitter and vintage mercury glass, and finally this little poodle. This is the Week of the Poodle here at Miss Rhea's. :)Could you just pass out from it all ?? Well, I didn't pass out, but it did tear me up. I just am blown away at how kind my bloggy friends are. Truly. Thank you Sweet Jen !!!

I also won another swap last month. Can you believe it ? I haven't commented on any giveaways since as I seem to be a Giveaway Winner Hog. This one from Karla. Not only did I win this book, and sweet hankies, but also a gift certificate to this place. Wow, they have the MOST beautiful images to use in your artwork. I selected Easter images, as they were my Favorites. Hope to create something special with them. Thank you SO much Karla, you are one of the sweetest, funniest, and generous bloggers in Blogland !And, one of my BFF's. This is one of the Sweetest girls I have ever known. She has such a softness of heart that is SO evident in all that she is, and I cherish her dearly. Sweet Miss Karen. I know this will embarrass her, but her horn needs to be tooted ! There is a line in a song, by Ace of Base that goes " No one's gonna drag you up, to get into the light, where you belong..." But I will !!! Karen is such a wonderful Mom, Wife, Friend and Artist. She is SO humble and kind. She is always thinking of others. She is starting to grow her business and she sent me some YUMMY seam binding from her store . Isn't this gorgeous ?? This is the Real Deal old stock that she found in her hometown.
Also some of her hand made large velvet leaves. You know I am a sucker for Velvet !! These are great !! Nice and BIG. Cant wait to use these on something. :)


Well, Thank you my precious bloggy friends, Each of you that come week after week and leave the nicest most uplifting comments. You mean more to me than you know. And to Jen, Karla and Karen, I love you's , and Thank you !!!! :)

Hugs,

Rhea

Oh Sweetie...
Good Morning Miss Rhea...
I love all your precious treasures. The beautiful little poodle, all the Valentines, and I love the little bird house, the binding tapes, such beautiful colors, and I adore those leaves. I can't wait to see where you use those. Aren't hankies just devine? We can use them in so many places.

I am so sorry that I forgot to add your name to my list. I am going back into posting and do so. I am not as good with my memory as I used to be. Just know that you are right up there too with the list of sweet friends and will be added momentarily. I so enjoy your visits to me, as I do to you.

Have a beautiful day sweetie. Country hugs and so much love...Sherry
