Welcome to my blog ~For Heart and Home~. Thank you to my dear friend Linda from New York who took the pictures I sent her and made this beautiful banner for me. I visualized what I wanted it to look like and she made it happen. That is my sister and I as youngsters and yes, that is the home I grew up in during the 40's and 50's. Right about now, you are all probably saying, my goodness she is old. I am vintage, just like fine old lace. Thank you also to my good friend Debbi, from Oregon who answered questions non stop while I was trying to navigate the workings of the blog world. What is so wonderful is that friendships can reach across the miles and even tho we have never seen each other in person - through the wonders of the computer, we have developed that bond. Also, a big thank you to my good friend Mona also from New York, who often helps me after I have totally screwed something up on the computer. I feel very Blessed to have you all as my friends. Thank you and I hope everyone enjoys my blog. I know I will.

I AM SO THRILLED TO HAVE RECEIVED THIS KREATIV BLOGGER AWARD FROM ETSY COTTAGE STYLE BLOGSPOT. In order to be worthy of this award you must list 7 things that you enjoy or love.

I enjoy waking up in the middle of the night with a great idea for creating something - then I can't wait to get up in the morning and make it.
I enjoy meeting new friends on line and finding that the world is not as big a place as I once thought. We are all people, brought together by creativity and friendship.
I enjoy being in my craft room creating, with my two fur babies curled up on the couch watching every move I make. Making the mistake of pulling out ribbon or the measuring tape - it means play time for them.
I enjoy having my grand daughter over and her helping me combine fabrics to create something. She is actually getting quite good at what goes well together.
I enjoy going into Vintage chat on Etsy and meeting up with my friends every evening.
I enjoy being a member of the Raspberry Rose Sellers Club and the friendships that has brought me.
I enjoy going to church on Sunday visiting God's house - makes the perfect start for me to begin my new week.

The other part of winning this blog is to award 7 other blogsites with this award. Be sure and visit them and leave a comment on their page. We all love company and who knows, you may even decide to follow one of these blogs. You can also enjoy their creativity.


Enjoy this award ladies.
