Before I begin my long awaited post :) I want to thank everyone from my heart for sending so much love to our wonderful friend Lorraine during her loss...she is such an amazing woman and I know she appreciates every ones love and concern during this time. She has a loving husband, children, family and friends that I know are there for her in her time of need, but I think knowing so many of us out here are thinking of her, must have made her heart smile, I know it did mine. Besos & huge hugs to all of you!
In Decemeber I won a wonderful Giveaway from the beautiful Rebecca of Rebecca for Vintage Living but to tell you what a heart she is, it was her Birthday...yet she did a giveaway for all her followers...see she is a total heart :) Anyways, the day before I got sick, a beautiful package came in the mail...then with me feeling so crappy...I actually forgot all about it...I know can you believe it!!! So when I opened it, I was just soo thrilled because I got one of her beautiful stars with some lil pretties :) and you know I love her Christmas stars... with all the creams and mochas, but I also LOVE the star I got, the colors are so rich and the materials she chose are so luxurious...I LOVE velvet & vintage trims...without knowing it....she sent me such a beautiful piece of art for my lil bebe art studio :) I know...lucky me right ! I feel so bad though because I know my pictures do not do my gifts justice....Rebecca amor, I am soo sorry for that....But I know, that you know....I LOVE them :)
This is the gorgeous package I saw when I opened my box...who am I kidding, mr wonderful opened the box and handed me this beauty :) I was so weak from the bad cold/flu, fever & body aches, that my fingers hurt from trying to pull the tabs apart on the box...(awww I love sympathy when I am sick...thank you :) lol
Look at the details of this gorgeous package!!! (clik on pictures to enlarge) the flower is so beautiful as is the tag that she made for me...oooh another beautiful tag for my collection :) If anyone wants to send me some of their own tags...I will hang them up in my bebe studio to display their beauty :) (shamless I know....but hey in my defense I have like 4 tags now and until Dawn told me what ATC's are...I had no idea, I thought it was like an art club :) lol
This is the gorgeousness (is that even a word?) that was inside...Look at the colors, I wish you could see how beautiful it really is, again so sorry for the pictures Rebecca.... The colors are in rich jewel tones...the textures and trims just gorgeous! I think this is vintage silver metal tinsel...although I would have to ask my dear friend Rebecca because I don't know too much about beautiful trims other than I LOVE them :)
Again please, clik on the pictures to enlarge, mr wonderful helped me take all these...so I guess I can blame him...Ha!!! I know I am such a goober...had I taken them I know I would have cut things out :) you should see how many pictures we have that have body parts missing lol Thank goodness for digital...processing pictures was getting expensive with all my booboos :) look at this lovely necklace I got too, you should see how beautiful the stone colors are...
Here are all my beautiful gifts...lucky me...I know :)

When we lost my dad last March, I was overwhelmed by grief, having just lost my Ita, (grandma) who was my heart and light 2 years before..his loss was almost unbearable, but with the help of my mama, my family and loving friends...including so many of you out here in Blogland that shared your losses and stories with me and showed me how to go on with such love and grace....it has made all the difference in my life...for that I thank you all....
I hope you all can share some of that love and hope that you shared with me......That you all.... can now share some of it with Lorraine and her family...Having just my mama left as my rock and strength, just the thought of losing her her can overwhelm me, so ...I can not even imagine what she must be feeling right now at this moment...Lorraine amor, my heart and love & friendship, is with you at this moment...May you and your family feel your mama all around you and in your hearts, in the up coming days and months...Much love to you my sweet friend. Thinking of you and your family..Rose
Whenever I think of Lorraine, this is the picture of her that comes into my hearts eye, smiling, sitting with the love of her life...I hope soon she will be smiling like this again...
my dear friend, I hope you don't mind me borrowing this beautiful picture of you and your love...
Until next time dear friends, may your hearts know no more saddness for a very long time and may your hearts instead be filled with the love and laughter and happiness of your family and loving friends....
