Thank you, BGFs!


Thank you

To me....
the very best thing about blogging
is meeting new friends
and followers like you.

Your visits
and your sweet comments
 make my bloggin'
 world go 'round!

I am always grateful
for the times
that you stop by
and share your
thoughts and opinions with me.

 Recently, I have received a few
prizes in the mail and
I wanted to share them
as they are too special to keep to myself.


This silver charger trophy plate came from Waveney. Her home, Glendogal Cottage, was featured here. (See link below)

Trophy inspcription.... 1937, the year the polohouse was built!

Then Sarah made this antique horse etching into a glass paperweight for me. Perfect!

Sarah has a window treatment design business...see link below!

And last week I got this surprise package in the mail.

Michele at Hello Lovely Inc. made me this inspirational  prayer collage!

A vintage  pewter polo player pin detaches to be worn!

Isn't this beautiful?

Waveney is an interior designer and her home,
the Glendogal Cottage was featured here.

Sarah has an online business
selling gorgeous window treatments amd accessories
and you can find her at her blog
or at her shop online at

Michele is a freelance writer and artist
with a shop on Etsy --- click here
 and you can find her on her blog

Thank you
so much for these
lovely gifts, ladies!

I read C.S. Lewis all the time and probably will until the end. I think he was the most brilliant writer of the twentieth century.

Sarah said...

Alison, I can't think of a more deserving person for these treasures. Each one is meant for you! Thanks for introducing us to these ladies. I couldn't leave a comment on Waveney's post, but it was truly fabulous. I definitely think you two are kindred spirits. It is a special treat to get a peek into both of your homes. I find myself enlarging each photo to study each charming detail. Thank you for sharing with us. ~ Sarah
