I am so very touched by the lovely comments and the kindness expressed to me! I am so pleased to be part (a small part!) of the blogging world and it has been such a joy to get to know so many wonderful people! It has been very sad and difficult to lose my darling cat, Violetta, but you all have made me feel so much better! Thank you so much for everything! You will never know how much you are appreciated!
I've had my patriotic tree up for a while now, so I changed it a little to have a Summer tree for the moment. I left a few patriotic things and added some other summery items. I'm particularly fond of the cute little "jeweled" bees and frogs I found in the sale bin yesterday!!! They are too cute!! I've been on a "bee kick" since I won the fabulous giveaway from Jacquie, which included two fabulous bee items--a precious pillow and a sweet little bee mini-pillow that is perched on this tree!!! I was thrilled to find these sparkly bees and I've got a few bee patterns that I'm going to stitch myself!! What fun!
As usual, my photography isn't too great, but in the right photo you can see the little bee and frog!! I love them!!
I'm working on some stitching now and will have a photo very soon! Thanks for stopping by, and do come again soon! Frances
