We're in for a fun weekend.....


I received this award from a wonderful blogger, Kim at Ragged Roses. The award is for devoted readers who leave supportive comments on your blog. Well, that is easy to do as I have really found a fun online friend in Kim. She is just a wonderful person and it is great fun to share with her through our blogs. I must admit that this is an award that I think all my faithful readers deserve also. I love looking at my comments and really appreciate each and every one! You are all really wonderful. I would like to spotlight two bloggers who have really touched me with their comments of uplifting support. One is a special person to me who my family has adopted and is such a sweet, wonderful and caring person ~ Mary from Across The Pond. Thanks Mary for always making my day just that little bit brighter! The second person came to my blog through Mary's and I have felt an instant connection with her too. Maybe it is because we share the passion of quilts and tea? She is such a nice lady and I have really enjoyed visiting her home through her blog ~ Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses. Thanks Rhondi for your visits and cheerful comments.

I am going to pass this award to a non~blogger next week so I hope you will join me for part two of this award then.....


We are going to Brugge, Belgium again tomorrow morning. There is an open house at the quilt shop starting tomorrow. Katie gave me the invitation when I was last in the shop back in December. I don't want to miss this day and to see her shop and home. This is her shop which is right in the historical city.


I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

My goodness just the photos of the quilt shop are lovely, I can only imagine how lovely it is on the inside. Enjoy your wonderful weekend - I look forward to hearing all about it. I so adore quilts and hope to someday do some quilting of my own (as I am always saying). Suzann

Gefeliciteerd! An award again for you. I hope you had a great time in the "Open House" this weekend in Brugge. The christmasquilt in the shop-window is lovely so I think the rest of the house will be lovely too.

Sweet Heidi - you are so kind to pass the award on to me, thank you so much.
I've enjoyed our online friendship so much since meeting you because of your garden sign and toadstools!! The months have shown me how talented and creative you are, what a wonderful family you have, and how one can feel a close friendship with someone even though separated by an ocean. I still hope to take that Netherlands trip and give you a real hug............and share a cup of tea, glass of wine ~ or both!!

Hope your weekend in Brugge is fun ~ will look forward to hearing about it.

Hello, Heidi! Thanks so much for stopping by again to read the story of my Grandmother's figurine. I enjoyed hearing your story, too! It is funny how we remember these little things...but they are SO important. Hope you get the hippo!
