For No Other Reason Than....


....to say Thank You.


I just clicked on to my blog and took a quick look at my followers list, and was suddenly overcome with.... gratitude.

I am so thankful for each and every person who visits here, whether you leave a comment or not (even though I love  comments!), or whether you become a follower or not (although I love those, too!)

Just the fact that you took a few minutes out of your busy day, and chose to spend a little time here with me, out of the hundreds and thousands of other blogs out there....it's humbling.

I make a lot of mistakes.
I'm not the most talented, or the most prolific.
I'm certainly not the craftiest or the most inspiring.
I'm just me.

And you should know that as much as I may have contributed to your lives, you have blessed me a hundred times more so.

So, again, I say


For allowing me the opportunity to live out a little piece of my dreams here with you.
For sharing in my life, and for encouraging me when I've needed it the most.
For accepting me into your sister (and brother) hood, and for making me wonder how I ever got along before knowing all of you.

Even though you've only had a blog a few months, my how time flies, we wonder how we ever got along without you. What a blessing you are to us bloggers. I'm always stopping in checking on you, even though I may not always comment, you know that's how us fairy blogmamas are, so sweet you've given me this title :) I see great things coming your way, truly, you are just so talented!!

Anne, you just make me smile every time I pop on in. I think you give way more back to everyone actually, everytime I go to comment on someone's page, there you are, leaving encouraging comments for all. Sweet girl. And all your images are the best, just my style.

Lauri said...

Oh, how sweet! But, THANK YOU, Anne, for sharing everything you do and find with me/us! I've only recently found your blog and don't exactly know the whole story of how this came to be, but, you are an inspiration to me in many ways. So really, thank you thank you thank you for sharing!

PS: I came over here to let you know about a bit antique show that is coming up this weekend. You probably already know about it but...just in case...it's at the Big Red Barn in Round Top, TX. The very second I heard about it (about 10 minutes ago) I thought of you!

Love you sweet Anne
