Welcome To My World!

I am so happy that you have stopped by for a visit!

It is here that I will try to share with you my creations, a bit of my home, my gardens and what inspires me.

Periodically, I will feature those dolls and creations that are available for purchase on my other blog:


Thank you for visiting!
I hope you enjoy your stay here!

With Carole's help I got on to Google Chrome.
So far I cannot say that I like it.
But like anything new, it will take time to get used to.
But this is not the reason for this post.
The reason is


And that is something I want to "tweet" about.
In my life, I have been blessed with the most loving friends,
some of them who could not be here.
They have been there for me in good and in bad times.
And I hope, I have been there for them too.
We spend a wonderful luncheon together,
we talked, laughed, ate and made merry.

 Our home was still in Christmas garb.

I am sharing with you some pictures of us!
None of us likes to have their picture taken.
So, with permission, I am posting a few.
Left to right....
my girlfriend Debbie, who lives in my town.
What would I do without my confidant,
and our almost daily chats!!!!
Next is wonderful, creative Paula.
I am being silly, and peeking over her shoulder.
Next  is sweet, giving Carole,
and funny, vivacious Deanna rounds out the bunch.

Yes, sweet generous Laura,
(you and Carole have bailed me out from my computer screw-ups innumerable times).
You did not get spared.
In the spirit of belated Christmas,
she tied a ribbon through her hair.
Laura is the cutest  gift to have!
And she did it in style with a French ribbon!

We girls created a "battlefield" of beautiful gifts, unwrapped.
There was lots of oohing, laughing and goodies  tasting.

It ended my Christmas season in the most wonderful way.

I am glad that you are all in my life!!!!!!!!!!!!

is truly something to tweet about!!!!!!

God bless,
