It's a PAR-TAY!



So, what are we celebrating???

Let's see....

Let's start with Debra's Birthday!

You know Debra, right?

If not, then what on earth's wrong with you???
Head on over to her fantabulous blog, Common Ground to see how Deb went from this...

 

to this...
  


to this...
  

At any age (and with anything on her head!), Debra is an absolute doll, and there's something for everybody at her wonderful blog...decorating, junking, family, faith...hence the name of her blog...Common Ground!
Be sure to pay the BIRTHDAY GIRL a visit to wish her a happy one, and while you're there, take the time to enter her fabulous March Celebration Give-Back!

 

Deb's offering these gorgeous rosettes from Gypsy Jill in her giveaway...



Which leads me to yet another amazing giveaway that I've been dying to share with you!

The insanely talented Jill from Gypsy Brocante is having a
don't-ya-dare-miss-it giveaway of her own!

 

For the next three Sundays, generous Jill will be giving away a Gypsy rosette each week, beginning with this coming Sunday, March 7th.


She also has a super secret surprise for one lucky Grand Prize Surprise Winner, so click HERE to enter.

And finally?
I just got back from San Antonio a little while ago, and my medical test results were mostly favorable. I'm not in the clear yet, but the worrisome situation they've been tracking has stabilized, and I'm not due for another follow-up until six months from today.
So yeah, I think this is cause for celebration, too!

I thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for your kind words and prayers, I carried all of them with me today.
Not just today, but always. In many ways, y'all are family now. We laugh we cry, we share, heck, we even fuss sometimes! I love you all, and I'm planning a HUGE GIVEAWAY of my own to say thank you! It's been in the works for awhile now, so hang in there, it will definitely be worth the wait!

 In conclusion, I'd just like to ask y'all to say a little prayer for my buddy Jan of  
She's dealing with some health issues of her own right now, so I know she'd appreciate knowing that the blogging community is lifting her up in prayer. 
Thanks!
And Happy Wednesday!

Hi Anne, glad to hear that all is well. I need to do some follow-up visits myself, but keep putting it off. Also time for that mammogram -- in fact, I skipped last year's. Yikes! How time does fly. I've already been to Debra's to say happy birthday! Jill's rosettes are just so plump and gorgeous! Lifting Jan up in prayer. Many blessings! Have a great day. :) Tammy
