I can't seem to express how thankful I am of the opportunity this past weekend I had to meet a Garden Blogging friend from England. It is amazing how close we have become through our blogs and have now had the opportunity to meet. Below is a picture of the group of us ladies that got together. From the left is Rose who write Prairie Rose's Garden who lives in Illinois, from England, Cheryl who writes Take Time To Smell the Flowers, Me and then, also from Il, Beckie who writes Dragonfly Corner. For more about our visit you can go here and here.
This visit got me to thinking about how wonderful blogging is. You meet such nice people that share your interests. I know I have been mightly blessed with such friendships.
Another of my friendships has been made with Marianne of Mandalas and More. She has gifted me with this beautiful beaded bag, some watercolor paper I have been looking for and a paperback booklet. I can't wait to use each item. I can't thank you enough Marianne.
I wish I could gift everyone with something beautiful and meaningful. Today I have collected the names of everyone that wanted a chance to read this book. Teri of Teri's Painted Daisies is the lucky winner of this book. I will post it soon Teri.
Happy Thankful Thursday to everyone. You know you make me thankful every day not just today.
