Hello friends. After a beautiful conversation with my sweet daughter, I began to in the quietness of the moment think on the many blessings that God has granted. My daughter has a way of reminding you of the goodness of our Saviour in such a sweet and wonderful way. She is my cheerleader, a total inspiration. She is also a kind and beautiful woman of God, one that always sees the beautiful side of life. Named after her Grandmother, Dovie is a name you will very seldom hear. Indeed she is like a gentle dove and many of her friends call her Dove.:o) She finds blessings in the smallest things and cherishes it. I have learned so much from her. She is a constant encouragement a very sweet soul. We both are dreamers and we have so much fun sharing them with one another.:o) We also know the real key to dreaming is enjoying the journey of getting there and not allowing ourselves to miss the tiny joys along the way. Oh my friends if I have but one message it is the message of blessings, gratitude and thanksgiving, a beautiful thing indeed.

What do you think of this yummy set of coffee and vanilla dyed tags! They smell so good and I even added a little cinnamon to their strings!:o) They are perfect in primitive art, collage, mix media, hang tags, for embellishing and a great gift too! If you have not yet stopped by Tea Time and Roses The Shoppe do so. Just click the pretty flowers on the sidebar. I have only a few pieces there now but more are coming!:o) In the meantime let us always remember to count our many blessings none are ever too tiny or too small.:o) Continue to enjoy a beautiful week my friends.

Hi Beverly,

It is so nice to "see" you. Your tags are great. I would never have thought to scent them but love the idea.

Your daughter sounds like a great friend. What a blessing that you can speak so very highly of her and that you obviously have a wonderful relationship. I hope my Chelsea and I continue to enjoy each other as she grows older.

Have a great week.

Beautiful name: Dovie! Beautiful relationship you have together and beautiful tags you created!

You are gifted by GOD with great talent.

I just popped over to your shop. I love the card with the bird on it! I'll be popping in and out and will make a purchase in August for my best friends birthday. I'd also like to work with you to do a giveaway on my blog where I pay you for something and have it shipped to the "winner" of the giveaway. Is that alright? Let's look toward mid-August...

I so appreciate the love you share on one of my blogs. You are a beautiful sister in Christ inside and out.
