‘Beautiful Friendships’

We make so many wonderful friends in our years of blogging.

If you look down my sidebar, you’ll see dozens of blogs that I enjoy visiting.

Linda from Sew What! and I became blog buddies a few years ago and I’ve enjoyed seeing all the beautiful things she makes. She has an Etsy shop now with pretty bags and handmade angels.

A few years ago she made this heart just for me…just because we are friends.

So when I got a new basket I put the heart inside along with an old postcard of a Waterhouse print. (they are my favs and I have several in my bedroom)

We live in the sunshine state so I’ll share some sunshine with you today.

Your bedroom looks lovely and I like the way you photographed the vignette. I am a Waterhouse fan, as well. Heading over to check out your friend's new shop right now.

Thanks for the sunshine. We have had very little in Texas Hill Country for a couple of weeks, and rain is predicted for the next few days. Since we are still officially in a drought, we welcome the rain, but the cloudiness gets a bit much.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

What a beautiful bedroom! I would want to curl up on that bed and bask in the sunlight like my kitty does. lol!

Thammie TheDollMaker said...

I just got a print of your card, "Soul of the Rose" from All Posters.com & it is beautiful! I had never seen it before & was surprised to see it as a card on your blog. Nice post!
