Please only ONE link per week. Lastly, if you link in, LINK back to my blog, so everyone can see all of the vintage goodies on display that day. If you don't link back here, they won't know who to visit......thanks so much.

Valentines already....seems like it was just Christmas! My, how the time flies.  When the first of January came around, I read lots of things online about the new year not starting off as grand or as great as it should, lots of folks going through tough and hard times. It always reminds me to be thankful for what I have and the love I have in my life. I am thankful. Always.

This little kitty was a recent find, it reminded me of how simple can be a good thing, and try to let the complicated things that come my way not seem so important in the big scheme of things. The last few weeks have really been a load of trying times. Seems like an avalanche of happenings that cause lots of stress and worry. You know how one things happens and then it all starts piling up...different things that weight down your heart and mind.

 These days, I don't do so well with complicated, stressful, feeling out of my element situations. I need a whole lot more of simple days instead of the complicated ones I am facing. I am guessing that is why this little kitty spoke to me, and I am not a cat person by any stretch of the word! Reminds me the music will play again...just wait it out. Simple can and will replace the time.

I have been sewing....just not to the point of a finish on one of my jubilee quilts. I went back and forth on the final design of one of the two quilts I decided to call my jubilee quilts and it is almost to the point of sending it to the quilter. The other one is on the design wall and I have it all layed out, just needs to be sewn together. This quilted heart is in my sewing room and I love that it was made from an old quilt. I myself don't think I'd have the heart to cut up an old quilt, but I do enjoy this heart!

Lastly, I'd like to send a Valentine to all my blogging friends who show up here even when I really don't have much to share or much of a clear thought to type our a creative post. I will say this, I DO have some posts coming once I get the photos taken that I know will be of some interest to my thrifting buddies! It is a discovery I happened upon by sheer accident and is genius if I do say so is all about the simple things that we overlook lots of times! I can't wait to share this with you all!!

Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday....and wishing you and yours a very Happy Valentines Day!! Spread a little love and cheer where ever you may be today!!

** Please note: This is a different link than I normally par for the course, I forgot to renew the other link I normally use and well it expired two days ago. I am guessing they are closed for the night and will have to renew the link tomorrow... I told you.....things are just not simple right now!! The old link system will be back next week and all the other links from previous post will be restored. Sorry for the confusion.

  10. Hi Suzanne; hope you are getting some quiet time for yourself. Some times the stress and life stuff just piles up so very high. Thank you for hosting and Happy Valentines Day.

  11. Life is so complicated! Things eventually get better. We are still slammed at work due to the lady Theresa who was let go. She left a trail of work and messes everywhere! I think she truly was trying to destroy the doctor! I worked with her 6 years and doubt she did a years worth of work in that time! I am still disgusted! I love your wreath and that cat is sweet! I have a little something for you I found at the thrift store. I really need to send it off! LOL! Life gets in our way!
    Take care of yourself! You are an amazing talented women and I know that each time I glance at my pretty tea cup quilt! Best gift ever! Hugs Anne


Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!
