Thank You Sweet Anita!

I love blogging..........I really love it. I have "met" so many wonderful women here in Bloggyville.

I've learned more than I ever imagined..........shared many a tear and a hearty laugh too.

And, every once in awhile you meet a chickie who is not only sweet and charming, but generous too.... And, that, my friends, is that darling little chickie from Castles, Crowns and Cottages.... ANITA.

And, to top it all off? She's SUPER duper talented too.

I've marveled at her artwork many times.....

When she asked for my address so she could send me some of her delish artwork I was so excited I could barely stand it.... and I must say, it was worth waiting for. :-)

All tucked inside this adorable card..... Anita LOVES France and Audrey Hepburn.... doesn't this look like Audrey IN France?? :-)

If you've never been to visit Anita......which I really doubt.... (because this chickie is super popular in Bloggyville)'s your chance! Zip on over and give her beautiful blog a peek.

You'll love it.

I. Promise.

Thank you again Anita. That was just so darn dear of you.

And, I'll treasure these wonderful works of art.... for.sure.



Oh, and PS..... I have a bloggy problem, that I'm sure one of you will know how to fix. When I try to add the labels to my post, it will automatically fill in something I've already put in that handy, dandy box, whether that's what I want there or not..... and it will NOT let me fix it. Grrrrrr. Any suggestions?


  1. YOUUUUUUUUU! are the cutest, the most adorable human being Spencer! THANK YOU FOR THIS! I am touched, vraiment EMUE!!! (moved).

  16. thanks so much for the sweet comment!!!!
    I just picked out my graphic from the graphic fairy, enlarge to whatever size you need, print it out and put carbon paper under it and trace the graphic...when you remove the carbon you have a graphic transfered to your wood, then just paint it...hope this helps!


Sweet and dear little Chickies....thank you so much for your comments. I read each and every one. I always try to make a return visit........sometimes I fail miserably... but you're alllll soooo special to me!

Many, many hugs!
