".. from my ragged heart to yours"

~* Wishes for a Happy 4th!


*~*Happy Birthday America!*~

Dear Friends ~

This week I am grateful for our Country!

and I am showing my gratitude by paying

tribute to those bloggers in my life who

share the joys and the spirit

of American life!

Jan from Summer Sundays has been a

real inspiration to me with her blog

about her love of her family,

her store ~ Leolas

where you can purchase to own

a little piece of America's past.

(Leola was her mother's name and her

wonderful sisters are a part of it too!)

Sometimes Jan's family

invites us to share in and

be a part of her family.

And we'll claim hers as part of ours any day!

Mrs. E. from Easy Street blog

is one of my newest friends in blogland.

She and her blogs have captured my heart

as she skillfully writes about

her small town life,

in a town that is rebuilding itself

after a devastating disaster.

(that shows the American spirit in action)

Jerusalem from my little life blog

One of my first ever blog friends

writes about her family life,

feathering her nest, and building

a design business with American ingenuity.



May your Holiday week be blessed

with every joy!

I wish you a happy 4th, Katie. Your blog pictures always look so good. It kind of makes me want to change my blog colors to black. There's just something about black that really makes those photos pop.
