LUCKY ME!



I have just found out that I have won a contest! The very sweet and most talented Fifi of Fifi Flowers has chosen my photo entry of my darling granddaughter as this week's winner! I am so excited because Fifi will paint my photo and place it on frameable notecards for me to enjoy. Thank you, FIFI! I just love Fifi's whimsical style of painting, so I know I will love her creation! I will post it on my blog as soon as she finishes it.
Hope everyone had a wonderful CHRISTMAS! I know I feel very blessed to have a loving family and a warm home and I will not ever take that for granted. God has blessed me over and above what I deserve. May His riches blessings be with you all in the new year, 2009!
Today, my husband and I went to see " Seven Pounds" and it is sooooooooo good! Very touching and quite thought provoking. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a good movie to see.

How exciting that Fifi chose your photo- that will be the most special painting to have!

I hope that you and your family had the most Merry Christmas and that you have a wonderful and Happy New Year!

MimmiLee = I traced that anon to Dallas - he went from my blog to the post on Randy Powers, so I'll bet it's a male interior designer, no one I know. So, it really doesn't hurt. but thanks for sticking up for me. there's always one or two nasty comments, it gives people a thrill I guess.
Hope you had a great New Years.
