"Gratitude is when memory is stored in the heart and not in the mind." ~ Lionel Hampton

From Zoobie on Etsy
 I love my Thursdays as this is when I get to share again my wanderings and discoveries that I have made recently. It is also when I give special thanks to the amazing people that I have met and or have enriched my blogging experience in various ways. I guess some people call it "Blog Love (insert beating heart here)".

So, in celebration of discovery, and as I wander around the web, I am compelled to say "thank you". Thank you for getting up everyday and writing something, sharing something, making something. You inspire me:

Christie at Describe, Happy. If I had to pick two things that I love visiting Christie's blog for, they are 1) her pictures of her beautiful pup Katie,  2) her enthusiasm, positivity, and optimism, 3) and her awesome quilting. "Oops," that was three. She has hinted about doing a sew-a-thon or sew-a-long where she would teach newer sewers like me how to sew an apron--or a quilt :). Um, no pressure, but how about--YES!! Thanks Christie!! It's been a pleasure getting to know you and your blog.

Zoobie on Etsy by Jessica. I found her felted castle play set when hunting for gifts for Christmas. I fell in love with the adorable simplicity of her sets. They are colorful, portable, and so original. She can also custom make these sets for you. My daughter has included her castle set in her everyday play toys--and I mean every day. She loves them! Thanks Jessica!

  1. You are seriously making my week! To realize that other people like what I am putting out there really makes me smile and blush! And I still say a big YES to our sewing adventure!! YES, yes, yes! I will have a big planning post early next week so we can all decide what it will look like! Much love to you and I am enjoying getting to know you as well!!

    And that little felt playset -- so stinkin' cute! Did you make it? Oh wait, I see it's from Toy Garden. I need to check them out!

    Happy new year to you :)
