~ Caring is the essence of nursing. ~

Our sweet Daughter-In-Love graduated from nursing school last week. We are so very proud of her accomplishments.
Nurses don't seem to wear caps anymore, but I was fortunate enough to find a vintage one in our own little thrift shop here in town. It needs a good cleaning and starching, but I thought she might like to have it, as a reminder of those who have gone on before her. Anyway, she will get a 'kick' out of it.

Here she is at the celebration dinner with a dozen roses from my dad and the silver and amythest bracelet from DH and me. Son, you picked the best.
Congratulations, Nurse Natasha!

Creativity is Infectious

One of my favorite Bloggers is Barbara Jean from Treasure's From the Heart
She is creative, sweet, giving and loves collecting treasures. I saw one of her 'Remember' frames on her site a long time ago and kept it on my list of 'things I'd like to make some day'. Then one day I found a frame of the right dimensions, spray painted it the right shade of Heirloom White and cut out some letters to glue onto the vintage music. Voila.
It will hang over my little studio in a closet, and encourage me and remind me to take time to create something every once in awhile.
Thank you Barbara Jean for helping us find our creative way.

You Won't Believe This!

The winner of my 100th Follower Blog Giveaway is Deb from {Posted from}Home. Congratulations, Deb!
I had my sister choose a random number from the number of posts on that date (it was fair and there was no peeking, really.)
Now for the unbelieveable part -
It was Deb's blog that I won a giveaway on just last week. Now, that is just almost impossible to believe, don't you think?
Funny how things happen in Blogland. Hope you enjoy your magazine, Deb!

Angel Art

A few months ago I treated myself to my first piece of artwork by the sweet and talented Dawn Edmonson. I am finally just getting around to posting it here for you all to enjoy, too. Dawn has some pretty pictures on her site here, too.
What a beautiful photo of a young woman this is.

Attention to every detail, flowers included.

But look what I found printed on the photo card, this photo card has travelled from Canada, to a little town south of Atlanta, Georgia - and back north to Canada again from where it started. Sometimes I wished she could talk and tell me the story of her life. I am sure it would be very interesting.
Please be sure to visit Dawn, she has one of the best blogs on the net.
And don't forget to sign up for my little giveaway, too.
Linking up to White Wednesday #68.

Celebrating 100 Followers with a Giveaway

I am celebrating my 100th follower today by offering a copy of the latest issue of my favorite magazine, Somerset Life. There is nothing I like better than to sit back with a fresh cup of coffee and read through a great magazine. These really are more like books than magazines. I keep every copy.
The rules are very simple, you just have to leave me a comment. That's it. Nothing else.
If you already have your own copy of Somerset Life, we will work out something with another magazine that you might like.
I will choose a random comment number on Friday, Oct. 15th, so make sure you have your comments in by the 14th.
You might like to let other's know about my giveaway by linking to this post on your blogs.
Wishing you unexpected blessing.
