My Sincerest Thanks!

*** There is a surprise at the end :) ***

The world of blogging never ceases to amaze me,
but what amazes me the most is the friendships that are formed.
Friendships with women across the states and around the world.
My life has been blessed by these women and their kindness 
during the last year and a half of blogging
and I am so incredibly honored to call these women 'Friends.'


A good friend of mine from Along the Cobblestone Path
had a giveaway and I was so surprised when she wrote me and said I had won!
I was thrilled!


I was given some sweet heart treat bags, note cards, AND a Wal-Mart gift card!
Whoa! Did I feel spoiled or what!
I am looking forward to a shopping spree and can you guess what I will be buying?
If you guessed craft supplies than you're right :)

Thank you, sweet friend, for the delightful items!


Next, I received this lovely glass 'Bluebird of Happiness' from Terra Studios.
It is beautifully made and will certainly bring me many years of happiness :)


My friend Vicky from Life on Willie Mae Lane received one
and shared about it in a post on her blog.
So I visited the official 'Bluebird of Happiness' site and entered to win a sweet bird.


Well surprise, surprise, I was a blessed winner as well!
The bluebird reminds my of my Grandma Betty 
and it sits happily in my kitchen with my other "bird friends."

Click on this link: 
 to visit the website and to enter for a chance to win 
your own 'Bluebird of Happiness.'


How can I express my thankfulness and gratitude 
when there are truly not enough words to say, "Thank You!"
I am humbled by these thoughtful gifts
and I am full of joy having such kind-hearted friends.

Here is a blessing for you, friends...
if you make an order today at the shoppe you will receive a free gift with your purchase :)
This is for today, February 26th only.


"Iron sharpeneth iron;
so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend."
~ Proverbs 27:17 ~

So good to 'meet' you. I come to your blog through Louisiana Belle.

I love your blue bird of happiness. Everyone should have one of those.

I must agree with the other ladies, you are the one who blesses us! Though I am your mother, this blog encourages me in so many ways. It is a peaceful place to visit, and some days I need to visit often. :-)
Thank you dear Stephanie for all the beauty of this God honoring blog. May the Lord bless you as you have blessed so many lives.
I may have to go doing again! :-)
Much love, Mom

Stephanie...I know exactly what you mean. I have only been blogging since June of last year and I have been so blessed by the friendships that I never thought were possible online. I want to meet everyone of them in person, don't you? You have most definitely been one of those sweet friends who have blessed my heart! You are always so kind with your words and expressions. You deserve everyone of those sweet gifts you received!

Vicky Hunt said...

Such sweet items you won in the giveaway and I'm so happy you also won a bluebird of happiness. They are so sweet...:) Thanks for the shout out too! Have a blessed evening....Vicky

You won some lovely things...well done!

Jeanna said...

When I saw your bluebird I thought it looked familiar. Then I remember our dear friend Vicky had one. I'm so happy that you have your own now... and I am especially pleased that it reminds you of your grandmother.

Lovely gifts from your blog friend too!

Hope you are having a great week!

Denise said...

Such nice gifts you were blessed with my friend.

Amy said...

I am so blessed to be your friend as well, Stephanie!

What fun little treasures you won. I love that little blue bird. My grandma had one like that when I was little. I might have to ask my mom if she has it now.

I hope you are having a wonderful week. Enjoy your moms birthday and all the family time.

Hugs to You,
Amy

I have one of those bluebirds of happiness, too. It was given to me by my brother- xo Diana

I love all of your pretties! And I have one of the bluebirds. I grew up about 30 miles from where they make them. I love going to their site, too. Enjoy your wonderful gifts my friend! You're always so giving, it's nice to see you receive some special things, too! Hugs!
