Have you ever been in a place when suddendly you catch something out of the corner of your eye & you're drawn to it like a moth to a flame LOL, you zero in on it,there's something about it that makes your heart pound as you get closer,before even checking the price you know you must have it at all cost, careful not to squeal now, for you are in a crowded place after all, but you are oblivious to your surroundings, as you reach out to pick it up, there's an instant bond between you & your new found treasure, you quickly make your way to the checkout before tears of joy begin to flow,as you make your way to the car you already know exactly where it will go when you get home, isn't God good when he blesses us when we least expect it

I have definitely had that 'I gotta have it' feeling. I think your treasures are wonderful.

I jumped over here from your sister and I'm glad I did. I felt a hint of your sister's wonderful humor, and fun personality. Welcome to blogging. Watch out, all of this fun takes lots of time. Smile.

Best wishes to your new blog.
