Hello my sweet lovely friends! In the midst of being super busy with creating for my Valentines swaps and shadowbox, I had a wonderful and lovely visit this weekend from my Silver Bella girlfriends from Jacksonville, FL. I met these gorgeous gals on the plane headed to Omaha NE along with the fabulous Suzanne Duda.
The girls were headed up to Atlanta to attend Market and shop for their OVER THE TOP baby boutique store called Popin. I was tickled that they wanted to stop for a quick visit. I met them in historic and charming downtown Perry. The girls wanted to hit a few shops, and have a bite for lunch. We had lunch at the famous Swanson house.

Afterwards they wanted to stop by my house for a tour and to meet my children. As soon as they walked thru the door my son Grant ran up to the girls and gave them all a group hug and kiss. He is such a FLIRT!!!!!!
They were soooo SWEET to have brought me a gift. 🙂
A beautiful inital Christmas ornament. The polka dots are in the SAME shade lavender as my dining room! SWEET! I just LOOOOVE it! Thank you girls!!! KISSES!!! (YES!!!! My tree is still up. hee! hee!)
After the bellas left my house, they had a dinner date later that evening at Ms. Suzanne Duda’s house where she showed off her roses china and fed them YUMMY cupcakes! 🙂 Im headed down to their neck of the woods in 2 weeks, so Im hoping to make a special visit to see them. THANK FOR LOVELY VISIT ladies!!!
While busy working on my Valentine swaps one of the central themes is Cupids and or Cherubs. Cupids and Cherubs are winged babies that are innocent, rosey cheeked, chubby, sweet, and angelic. Cupids are obviously most recognized and know for frequently shooting his bow to inspire romantic love. A cherub is described as a representation of one of the cherubim as, in early art, a winged angel clothed in red or, later, a chubby, rosy-faced child with wings, and a child with a sweet innocent face.
I stopped and realized I have sooo many of these sweet angelic little treasures all over my home that I would love to share with you.

Believe it or not. I still have MORE cherubs all throughout my house. Never did I honestly realize how many I have collected over the years.
I have saved the BEST for last!!!!!
