Thankful Thursday (#13)

Among the things to be thankful for (in random order) these beauties from Margaret! Mail from her is always a pleasure to receive! I haven't yet seen a piece from her I didn't like, so trading is always fun! Thanks Margaret!
Now these ATC's came exactly on my birthday! H= for Happy Birthday! And a bling bling bonus card. From Soulbrush! Together with some intriguing inchies (NO SOUL, NO!) Thanks so much dear! What a great surprise.
An Award from KJ! Thank you dear! I am free to pass it on so please take it and spread the good news!
I just returned from Vancouver and I am still groggy from the flight, the lack of sleep and the time difference........ This is the view from my window where I am blogging and painting when not tired. Mums and children are doing fine, the fawns are growing and playing and showing themselves often now. Here they are relaxing just in front of my window. The house is filled with the smell of honey and garlic. My DH is preparing dinner. My holiday has begun! I will spend the first 10 days at home and the 1st of August we will go to Sweden. To spend time with family and friends and to bring my father home(we will bring his ashes to Sweden). I am grateful Lolo arrived home safe and sound and that she is back in action! Well I can make an endless for now Happy Thankful Thursday!
