On Thursday Maggie and Milo arrived. They traveled all the way from California to Ohio.
Their wonderful creator Penny at Angelsdoor carefully had handcrafted these adorable friends.
I think she knew the climate here might be an adjustment for them. Maggie's beautiful blue coat and muff are sure to keep her very warm when our winters grow cold. Milo was lovingly covered with plenty of fur to keep him comfortable. Of course they will be kept in a very safe and treasured place in my home. Thank you Penny for allowing me to enjoy these sweet ones.

Well now I must go - Maggie and Milo are waiting for me! Everyone have a joyful week.
Hello friends. Thought it would be nice to share something old and something new with you today.
A few weeks ago my cousin Cheryl contacted me to see if I would like to have our Grandmother's pendant. She had received it from her mother and was now wanting to pass it along to me.
This lovely piece had been a gift to my grandmother from her first husband before he passed away.
It is possibly a 100 years old.
Having never known my father's mother it is such a special blessing to have something of hers to keep. What a generous gift from my cousin. So grateful to her for sharing this keepsake with me. If you are reading this Cheryl - thank you!
Now for something new.
Inspiration seems to be everywhere.
Outdoors the landscape is awakening from its long winter's nap.
Spring flowers are blooming - providing plenty of fresh bouquets.
Plus another new issue of my favorite magazine is on the news stand. Who can't resist a peek into the studios of other artistic souls? If you have never enjoyed this periodical hope you will find an issue to read. With a cup of coffee or tea it makes a great way to spend a rainy afternoon.
Well that is all for now dear friends. Thanks for letting me share something old and something new.
Hope you will too! I will be around to visit. Have a beautiful week.
