I just had to post this adorable banner that Alyssa's Aunt Maggie made for her and sent in a box full of 'surprises'.

Aunt Maggie always makes all kinds of adorable things, but as soon as Alyssa saw this, she fell in love and immediately wanted it hung above her bed.

I might add that, for as long as I can remember, Aunt Maggie has made Alyssa a 'special' pillowcase every year, just for her. And, along in the box full of 'surprises', was a pillowcase.

So, Aunt Maggie, thank you! Always know that these treasures are keepsakes for Alyssa!!

"The Last Song"

Well, ta-dah! Here it is, my second autographed book of Nicholas Sparks.

It may seem like something small, but it is really a keepsake to me! He's a wonderful author!

Now, I cannot wait to get somewhere cozy and read this newest release!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

"Another Autograph"

Good morning! I've already got this lastest novel by Nicholas Sparks bought; paid for; and, in line for his autograph today at the Davis-Kidd in Nashville, Tennessee. Yippee!!

We do not need to get into the unfortunate details of the fact that he is going to be so close to my hometown, and I'm not going to be able to be there personally to meet him. :(

But, let's just say, that, while I'm at a much needed check-up at the doctor's office, my book will be autographed. So, I can live with that and life is good!! :)

Now, I just cannot wait for Mr. Brown Truck to bring it!!!

"Look What I Found"

Ok, everyone, as I do daily, I was looking through Splitcoast and ran across some mugs stamped with adorable images of girls on them.

Of course, I just had to click on the link for the blog to find out more of this ladies work, and came across this opportunity for a chance at this wonderful blog candy!!

Here is the link to her blog:, for any of you that would like to view her work and stamps further. (The only thing I want to add is that it is in German, but she has graciously added the option to click for translation.)

It would be early Christmas for me to win this blog candy, however, I can tell you, win or lose, that she is now totally marked in my 'favorites' on my computer! Her images have a touch of whimsy to them, but, to me, they are outstanding!!

Just wanted to share, hope you enjoyed!!
