".. from my ragged heart to yours"

'"'*~''CuRing WiNteR DoLdrUmS"**

Stuck in LiMbO
somewhere between Winter and Spring

Days without the Sun
my good energy

So here is my list of ways
to lift oneself out of these seemingly
Bleak Days

Enter an Art Challenge!

Dream of a new dress
from here.
And these boots.
(don't tell Dottie and my challenge friends-OK?
I'm trying so hard not to buy anything new for myselt)

Reach Out and Help Others

Purchase something from Hearts for Haiti

Visit Leolas

Share a moment and have
a good laugh!

Get lost in a Great Book
with your best friend or Date!

Have a Happy Joyful Weekend!
Many blessings and remember

All great ideas. (Thanks for those links!) I especially am fond of the bookstore idea. I am so in need of a bookstore afternoon! Have a wonderful weekend!

Patti said...

Love the pics- and the collage pic as well (she's a fav of mine too). Great ideas for such a blah time of year. I feel your limboness- and it is feeling like forever! Enjoy your weekend~

Janet said...

That winter scene is beautiful! You have some very good ideas to get rid of the blahs. We don't have snow but it's raining here today so I guess that qualifies for a blah day. I'm playing in the studio.

They are all great ideas. At least it's going to be March. Thanks for the nice comment. Your opinion of me means a great deal. Can't wait to make Leola's look "springy" for next weekend. Hope to see you there. Jan

I'm for "decorating" myself into spring. It may not be yet, but I'm banishing all things "winter" from inside the house.
big hugs,

Hi, Katie!

IT CAME! I got the OWOH package in the mail today...and I LOVE IT! It is even cuter and sweeter in person than in the picture!! I know exactly where it is going to hang, and I can't wait to put it up. I'll take pictures as soon as it is in its new home (I have to wait a few days until the remodel is done, but hopefully that won't be too much longer!). THANK YOU so much for this lovely piece of art and for taking such great care in wrapping it so beautifully. If it's okay, I'm going to borrow your photo of it (I still cannot find my camera OR my memory card to go into the camera in all the chaos that is now our house) and show all the followers of my blog what a lovely treasure I have won. Would that be okay?

Oh, Katie, I'm THRILLED!


One lucky girl,
