Special Friends And DIY Ahead!

The joys of blogging are making new friends! Now who could not use a few good friends in their life. I know I consider myself blessed to call these three ladies my friends. The first one is Miss Tera. She designs my blog and boy does she work her little heart out for you. We worked {well she did and I just chattered} way into the night. I think she is great! Thank you Tera for all of the many hours you spend helping me get it just right.

My next friend I want to share is Miss Suzanne. She sells Southern Living and I won these goodies from her blog givaway! She also sent me a yummy candle but I have been smelling it up and you will just have to take my word on their candles....Yum!

These lil cookbooks she sent my way too..love em!

Then there is sweet Miss Cheri. I won her giveaway too! Lucky me...two in a row...hehe. She made me this adorable nest with three lil eggs for my chicadees still in the nest.

I have a special place in my cottage for this lil nest. You will see soon! I do hope you get a chance to visit these very sweet friends. I know they would love to meet you too!
****Hope you check back soon for that JUTE RIBBON DIY. It's gonna be fun!****
