Today has been a heart breaking day for me and my family. Early this morning, my father finally lost his battle with pulmonary fibrosis. He had been rushed to the hospital on Thursday and was to come home today, along with hospice care, to help make his last days comfortable. It is a difficult disease to watch a loved one go through, and I think in his heart, he did not want to burden anyone with that memory, and chose to pass on before leaving the hospital.
My Dad was a amazing man, and though I can barely think straight right now, I had to post "something", "anything" to help release some of my thoughts.
Every year, Dad would ask for only two things for Father's Day........"peace and quiet! Well Dad, I will miss you terribly and my heart aches, but I find comfort in knowing you have found your "peace".

CHRISTMAS IN JULY with Sylvia Smiser

Some months back, after taking part in a swap with talented Sylvia Smiser from Anaboo Creations, we contacted each other to join in on another swap. The first one as so much fun, how could I pass it up. Well, after getting sidetracked for a while, we finally were able to get our pieces done and sent off to each other. My only request was that it be a Christmas theme, and her request was a tea cup to go with the Halloween tea pot I sent her earlier.
Oh, what a lucky girl I am!!!!! Check out the adorable Elf she sent me. She is perfect, and now I have TWO original dolls to call my own.

She didn't forget a single detail!

Those ears!

Thank you Sylvia! I love her. I hope you love your tea cups....and their saucers will be on there way to you soon!
