And I do mean WOW! March has been a heck of a month around here so far. I had not even realized how long it had been since I had posted.....
Well let's remedy that right now!

My biggest thrill this past month was receiving my mug mat from Natalie over at Tins and Treasures. What a sweet, sweet lady and when the parcel arrived I was having a grey day and this precious mug mat lifted my spirits immediately!
The colors were perfect for my kitchen and Natalie had coffee stained it so it really seemed so vintage. It was the ideal touch!
And in addition to this precious mat Natalie included one of her oh so sweet tins loaded with chocolate (which disappeared in a heartbeat). She also added a few samples of flavored coffee and lovely tea, which have also long since vanished...Hmmmm!
How cozy and homey is this hand-decorated tin? Thank you so much Natalie for such a lovely package, I am so happy to have had you as my swap partner!
And a huge thank you to Donna over at Brynwood Needleworks  Donna is the wonderful lady who sponsored and organized the swap! 
I am always amazed at the incredible talent I see everyday on Blogger and these two ladies have extraordinary talents and truly lovely blogs. Give yourself a BIG treat and visit their blogs when you have a moment to sit and relax...you won't be disappointed!

Today for International Women's Day

On this day I wanted to remember all the women of this world who do not enjoy the freedoms I take for granted each day. 
I am so thankful that I do not have to wonder this morning if I will offend someone by my very existence and pay for that with my life.
On this day I pray from my heart that in my lifetime I will see all women of this world given the gift of freedom to chose their own destinies, live in peace, and share their talents without fear.
Today I ask that we women who live in this freedom loving country take a moment to remember their sisters who live in fear we cannot imagine and pray their day in the sun is coming!
