Don and I spent a quiet day at home with the fire place burning and watching movies. It was a nice and restful day for us.
The New Year will be approaching next week...my Birthday will be in 2 weeks...so I thought it would be a nice a time for another blog give away. I have been working on collecting the goodies for this give away for a about a week. I have purchased some wonderful vintage finds the past few weeks. I will share photos of my lucky finds on Monday. I will post my next blog give away on January 1 for a drawing on January 8th my birthday. So please check back for photos
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
PS The theme for the give away will be retro/40s/50s. I also have added some gift tags to my Etsy shop!

I received this as an email today. I thought I would share with you!
WHAT HAPPENS IN HEAVEN
I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels... My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, 'This is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received.' I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world.
Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.The angel then said to me, 'This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed and delivered to the living persons who asked for them.' I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for delivery to Earth.
Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. 'This is the Acknowledgment Section,' my angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed. 'How is it that there is no work going on here?' I asked.'So sad,' the angel sighed. 'After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send back acknowledgments.
''How does one acknowledge God's blessings?' I asked.'Simple,' the angel answered. "Just say, Thank you, Lord."
''What blessings should they acknowledge?" I asked. If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy. And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity. If you woke up this morning with more health than illness. You are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day. If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation . You are ahead of 700 million people in the world. If you can attend a place of worship without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people in the world. If your parents are still alive and still married ..you are very rare. If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you're unique to all those in doubt and despair. Ok, what now? How can I start? If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you as very special and you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all. Have a good day, count your blessings, and if you care to, pass this along to remind everyone else how blessed we all are.
ATTN: Acknowledge Dept . Thank you Lord, for giving me the ability to share this message and for giving me so many wonderful people with whom to share it.
I thank God for everything, especially all my family and friends!!
