A Surprise And An Announcement!

What a very sweet surprise! A little package appeared on our porch today, just ahead of the storms. Inside was this precious gift and the sweetest card. Andi said she had found this little treasure in an antique shop and it had begged to live with me. I decided to add the pink egg as a small Easter touch. Andi, you are just so dear and thoughtful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! What a special new piece for my collection.
Grace and I decided that we had so many names in our hat that we would draw 2! The first name she pulled out of the hat (a very jaunty red fire helmet that belonged to my late Father)
was.......may I have drum roll please?.......
It was Sheila whose blog is titled, "From Me To You".
The next name pulled was.......okay, I'll hurry. The drummer is getting really tired......
Dawn B. from the blog, "Be Inspired, I Am".

And, once again, thanks to ALL of you who visit me here, who leave comments and who make my life just so much brighter. I so love dropping in on your blogs many times a week and continuing to be inspired, awed, tickled, enlightened and just plain *DElighted*. I can not tell you how much this blogging community has meant to me.

I am grateful for it, for each of you, for the opportunity to share and create and just plain have fun. If anything I post gives you a giggle from time to time then *I* am the lucky one. Thanks to you all....many, many special blessings are wished for each and every one of you.

Hugs,

Susie Q

And it's only appropriate that a blue egg cup have a pretty pink egg at Easter time. Glad you liked your surprise!

Hope the storms passed quickly and all is well there.

WOW, what a sweet surprise to wake up to this morning.

Susie & Gracie, thank you so much for picking my name. What a fun thing to do...and I definitely wasn't expecting to be chosen.

Have a great day!!!

By the way, we had yucky storms last night too. I had even planned to take the kids out for a picnic today, but it's SOAKING wet out :-(. Guess we'll be picnicking in the basement :-).

Seeing Scarlet O'Harra anounce winners was a kick.

which leads all the losers to say:
"Tomorrow is another day"

I love Monty Python! I think you should give Sheila a shrubbery (Kidding!)

That egg holder is just darling too. No wonder it wanted to come to your little cottage!

Sheila said...

OH MY GOODNESS! My name was actually picked??? I am feeling SO lucky lately! Maybe I should go and buy a lottery ticket while I'm on a roll?!
And Sue, you are just too adorable with the Monty Python guys announcing my name! VERY appropriate since we met on a Python forum!!
And yes, I enjoy your blog posts SO much. You always make my day a little brighter!
Thanks Sue, and thank you Grace!
