  1. I just love your new gift tags Melinda, I know they will do well in your shop!
    Your vintage shop is just darling and I already have my eye on a few things ;)
    So glad to hear from you and hope you are doing well.
    Take care

  2. Hi Melinda, just catching up on some blogs and read your previous blog, life is a funny one isn't it. I started my blog as a way to promote my art/creations so that I could support myself by selling them(older single unemployed mum) however it has become instead a means to express words and little stories of my life that I cannot do with my friends, they would think I had gone mad, 'what, talking about teddy bears being romantic, she's gone nuts' I don't know if I have any followers or my words just float around in the ether and get swollowed by one of the big black holes.
    You are a lovely lady and it isn't easy at times, so pour your energy into your family, friends your creations and nurturing yourself. One day you are going to look back, take a big breath and say 'hey I did it'
    Hugs Sandi

  3. I like what Sandi said, the comment above mine, so I am going to say Ditto, except I don't know about teddy bears being romantic. It is okay, I too as you know have been a little MIA from Blogging as I got the shop ready and continue to fine tune it. It is a lot of work but I am enjoying every moment. There is no way I could have done it when my daughter was younger. So I am finally stopping by to say a belated thank you for your support and encouragement, us girls have to stick together. I have posted some photos today so please be sure to take a moment to see. Remember it is still a work in progress. Thanks.


I am always so happy to hear from all of you!!~ Thank you for taking the time to stop by for a visit, you always make my day sweeter with your kindness!!~
