Another fun giveaway! Yes please enter me.

Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. I'm seeing a bit better with reading glasses, but I'm still hoping for more improvement. It's cutting down the amount of time I can look at my computer. I'm way behind on my favorite blogs... like yours!

I just found out about your blog from Dawn of The Feathered Nest. I am new to blog land, but not new to collecting vintage items and doing crafts. Going to Antique Shops is one of my favorite things, however, there are just a couple in my town, so am always happy to go out of town and find new ones. I have read so many lovely blogs from ladies who share my interests, and these are all inspiring to me. I would feel honored to be entered in your lovely Give-a-Way....

Linda, from and also a blogger on Borensisters.

Hi Nita
I read your last post and the tears came pouring silently down my face, like a floodgate. The conrete angel song did more of the same! Although I was never abused physically my father was such a verbal abuser and I am now having counselling to help me understand. This post in contrast makes a truly sweet and heartwarming gesture, for which i want to thank you. Your blog has helped me and continues to help me trust in myself and above all God.
With love Salx ps: Happy Mothers Day to you too!

Please count me in! I found your blog through The Feathered Nest and have enjoyed reading your posts.

I hope you find out what is going on with your daughter soon. I know you are so worried. My daughter had an enlarged spleen when she was a baby. They never did figure out why, but it eventually went down... and she is a happy 23 year old today!

Nita, How sweet of you to think of others!!! Please enter me in your giveaway. I wanted you to know that I'm glad you have brought up the discussion of healing broken hearts. It's a message everyone needs to hear. Isn't it great that God~( Jesus ) said~~~I'll never leave you or forsake you!!! That's always been a comfort to me.I'll be praying for you as you seek healing and restoration on all levels of your life. I do know where you are comming from. God's Richest Blessings Sweet Nita, In Him, Deborah

Hi Nita,

I'm a constant reader/lurker through Bloglines. I don't even remember how I found your blog, but I remember it caught my interest because my late husband had a spinal cord injury, and I identify with you on several levels.

Please enter me! :) I am a big fan of vintage decor and gardening too!
