BLOGGERS,  GO  TO:




YOU  WILL  HAVE  A  WONDERFUL

TIME.





A  BEAUTIFUL  LADY,  NAMED

QUEENMOTHERMAMAW

PAINTED  THIS  BIRTHDAY  CARD  FOR

ME.  I  ASK  HER  SOME  TIME  AGO  IF

SHE  WOULD  PAINT  ME  A  BIRTHDAY  CARD

AND  SURE  ENOUGH  IT  FOUND  ITS'  WAY

TO  MY  MAIL  BOX.

WHEN  I  SAW  THE  ENVELOPE  I  BEGAN  TO

CRY  AND  SQUEAL.   IT  WAS  STUNNING  WHEN

I  TOOK  IT  OUT  OF  THE  ENVELOPE...AND  BOY

DID  IT  SMELL  GOOD.  IT  HAD  A  PRETTY

SMELLING  SACHET  WHEN  IT  ARRIVED.  IT  WAS

LIKE  A  PART  OF  HER  STEPPED  OUT  OF  THE

ENVELOPE.


THANK  YOU  SO  VERY  MUCH  PEGGY.  I  WILL

TREASURE  IT  FOREVER.

PLEASE  STOP  BY  AND  VISIT  PEGGY  AT





THANK  YOU  PRECIOUS  OLIVIA

OLIVIA'S  ROMANTIC  HOME



OLIVIA  HAS  A  MONTHLY  DRAWING  EVERY

MONTH  ON  HER  BLOG.  SHE  DRAWS  FROM

HER  FOLLOWERS.

I,  ME, MOI,  WON  HER  GIVE  AWAY  FOR  APRIL.

IT  WAS  A  BEAUTIFUL  TEAPOT....DID  I  SAY

BEAUTIFUL.

WHEN  I  OPENED  THE  BOX,  IT  HAD  THE

MOST  "BEAUTIFUL"  TEAPOT  CARD  WITH  A

SACHET  ATTACHED.  IT  SMELLED  JUST  LIKE

QUEENMOTHERMAMAW'S  SACHET.  BOTH  WERE

SUCH  A  PRETTY  SMELL  AND  NEITHER  ONE

KNEW  THAT  MOST  SCENTS  WILL  GIVE  ME  A

SEVERE  HEADACHE.   I  LOVE  EVELYN  AND

CRABTREE'S  NANTUCKET  BRIAR.  IT  IS  SUCH

A  CLEAN  AND  PRETTY  SMELL...AND  THIS

SMELLED  SIMILAR.




THIS  IS  MY  PRECIOUS  ANDY  THAT  LIKES

TO  INSPECT  ALL  INCOMING  PACKAGES


ISN'T  THAT  THE  SWEETEST  LITTLE  TEA-

POT  YOU  HAVE  EVER  SEEN.

IT  HAS  BEAUTIFUL  LITTLE  PINK  ROSES.

THANK  YOU  SO  VERY  MUCH  OLIVIA.

I  THINK  MY  AMY  AND  GOD  HAD  SOME-

THING  TO  DO  WITH  IT  AS  IT  WAS  MY  FIRST

MOTHER'S  DAY  WITHOUT  HER  AND  MY  FIRST

BIRTHDAY  IN  33  YEARS  I  SPENT  WITHOUT  HER.

(I  DO  WANT  TO  SAY  MY  PRECIOUS  SON  WAS

HERE  WEDNESDAY  THROUGH  SATURDAY,

HE  CALLED  ME  SUNDAY  AND  BOTH  MY  SON,

D-I-L  AND  FUR GRAND  BABIES  WERE  HERE

MONDAY  FOR  MY  BIRTHDAY...BUT  I  TAKE  A

DAY  AT  A  TIME.)


THE  BLOGS  I  WOULD  LIKE  YOU  TO  VISIT  WOULD

BE  OLIVIA'S  AND  QUEENMOTHERMAMAW! 

IN  ADDITION  I  FOUND  AN  AWESOME  FREE

GRAPHICS  BLOG.  THE  OWNER 

IS  NAMED  CAROLYN  AND  HER  URL  IS:






THANK  YOU  FOR  SPENDING  A  PART  OF

YOUR  PINK  SATURDAY  WITH  ME  AND  GRACIE

ANN,  MY  CHICKEN  MASCOT.

I  WISH  YOU  A  HAPPY  DAY  FULL  OF  FUN  AND

LAUGHTER  AND  THE  GLORY  OF  THE  LORD

SHINE  UPON  YOU.

HUGS

I am so sorry for your loss and happy that your son was there for you. I haven't lost a child in death, but I think I know how you feel because when my first husband and I were going through a divorce, he took my son (2 years old) from the daycare while I was at work. I thought my heart was going to burst! It took a judge and two days to get him and my daughters back! Thank you for a lovely post and God bless!

Susie Jefferson said...

HI Debbie and Happy Pink Saturday!

Thanks so much for sharing your pretty pinks - Mr Andy has good taste, and must take after his Mommy. And thanks for visiting and leaving such a lovely comment. The blog title comes from having a flat - on the first floor! (2nd floor in the US - your 1st floor is our Ground floor). Hugs from the UK.

Glennis said...

Lots of lovely pink, how nice to have a special card painted just for you. Like the kitty cat too, a nosy type kitty cat as most of them are.

KBeau said...

Love the handpainted card. What a special thing. The teapot is beautiful. Congrats on winning it. Have a good Pink Saturday.

Hi Debbie and HPS to you! What a lovely card and teapot! I am sure Amy had a lot to do with it. Your son and dil sound like big blessings. We are sending you big sparkly hugs!

Nellie's Cozy place said...

Morning Debbie,
Oh what lovely gifts, the painted card is so pretty and the Tea pot is so charmingly beautiful,
and don't you just love sachets (especially if they don't give you a headache) I have noticed that about some too, cause they are just too too
strong, but those with soft scents are very lovely.
So glad your son and Dil and fur grandbabies made it a point to be with you for Mother's Day,
I am sure that had to help some!! That is so precious when we see our children go so out of their way to make us happy. It shows they are finally growing up!! what a precious gift that is in and of inself.
I thought of you and prayed for you cause I knew it would be a hard day, but didn't know it was
your birthday as well, so Happy Birthday hon!!
and
Blessings to you and yours,
Nellie

Hi Debbie: Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. I needed to hear sweet this morning. What a wonderful surprise to win that tea pot. I am sorry that you suffered this past Mother's Day. I just want to remind you that you were a wonderful mom. I am sure your daughter is saying the same thing, right now. Isn't wonderful to know they are always with us. God is so good. Have a wonderful week. Knowing that you are loved always makes things better. Blessings, Martha

Dear Miss D...

You know...the thought came to me that this year will be full of "Firsts" for you now that AmyGirl is in heaven. I hope your birthday was wonderful. You know your beloved daughter is waiting for you on the other side of the clouds...

Your sweet comments ALWAYS make me smile. I can't wait to meet up again. Lunch is on me. OK?

Blessings to you friend. Love to the moon...Rebecca

You got some neat things and they are obviously gifts of blessings for and to you! God is SO good! Even the scents were perfect. I love the photo of Andy's inspection! Too cute. You've been on my thoughts - hope you're feeling better. (Ever try vicks vaporub for your headaches? Just sniffing it can evaporate some of my headaches. FOr the bad ones, it's vicks to the temples of my head and base of my neck and be sure you're not going anywhere or that you don't lay your head down on something that can't take the vicks!). Some tough times you're going through. And, one day at a time ... you'll get through it ... it's a lot to get through. Never give up. God is faithful. Praise the Lord! Love, Jenn

thestonerabbit said...

Hi Debbie! What great gifts..thank you for sharing them with us on PSaturday. My heart aches for you and your family as the days go by without Amy physically present. However, I agree with you....I'm thinking she had a hand in getting that tea pot to you!!! You were such a good mom to her. . . I know that she appreciated all you did for her and the enormous amount of love you gave her.

L, Dana

suesueb said...

Thanks for visiting me on my blog and such sweet comments about my grands! I found my copy of Artful Blogging at Michael's, didn't see it at Hobby Lobby. Maybe a large bookstore may have it also. Your teapot is gorgeous and the handpainted card priceless. I'm sure your Mother's Day was so hard for you and will pray for all of your family. Happy pink week and God Bless You.

Linda said...

Sorry for the loss of your mom and your daughter too. You obviously are a strong lady. I'm so glad your son was there with you. I love your beautiful pink painted card, how thoughtful for a friend to make it for you. Beautiful wins too. I want to wish you a belated Mother's Day and a Happy Birthday.

Holly, the Old Western Gal said...

Gosh, I knew QMM was a sweet and wonderful lady, but I didn't know she had such artistic talent, too!!! Wow!

And the teapot is just adorable.

Hang in there, Debbie.

xinex said...

Hi Debbie! The cards are beautiful and the teapot is so adorable! I love the flowers and how they are arranged on the teapot. I hope you had a wonderful birthday and Mother's Day. I know Amy is always with you in spirit....Christine

Debbie, how did I miss the fact that you had a birthday??? Oh, I want to be sure and say Happy Belated Birthday to you! I'm so glad that that Richie and his wife got to be there with you to celebrate, and I love your pretty teapot and the lovely card you got. But I wish I had been Johnny-on-the-spot for your actual birthday! HOW DID I MISS THIS??? Please forgive me. I wouldn't have missed wishing you a Happy Birthday for anything.

XO,

Sheila

You really killed a lot of birds today with one stone. Never saw so many neat blogs and you did such a great job on all of them. Nicely done.

Beautiful pear tree lane said...

Hi Debbie,
Happy belated Birthday to you.
Congratulations on your wins, that rose teapot is beautiful, and the card. Andy looks so much like my Tiger that we lost last year.
I know this was your first Mother's Day without Amy here to celebrate with you. I believe she was celebrating you in heaven, and telling the Lord what a wonderful Mother you are.
Thank you for sharing these two sites, I will check them out.
Hugs,
Sue
