FINALLY! I'm feeling so much better and decided to get this posted. I have a cute flower bib necklace I made to offer you. It goes so cute with jeans and a white T-Shirt or in a soft shabby chic dress. The deal is follow me and leave me a comment will get you in. Also if you post it on your blog, let me know so I can come see you and that will get you another chance. I'm still old school on this blogging biz and I don't have a badge for you to grab. Gotta get my daughter to help me with that! Anyway.... hope to get some new friends from this and have a GREAT week!

She got me thinking....

I was in blog hopping and came across  http://www.susieharrisblog.com/2011/02/friend.html  and she got me thinking about all the people I visit in blog land and who has visited me. I have never really had a lot of friends to hang out with or who share the same likes as I do and it can get a little lonely wanting to go antiquing with someone or craft with someone and feel that love with. In blog land so many have the same tastes and loves, but also the motivation and empathy  that is out there helps me know the world is still a great and accepting place. We all want to know we are loved and accepted and I vow to be more loving and compasionate and to make sure I voice my love to others. So THANK YOU and I LOVE YOU for your sweet comments and friendship. May Gods choicest blessings be yours.

Black History Month

I recently heard a white girl say "Why don't we have White History Month", and was sad to hear her attitude. I am white, I grew up with a lot of my family being predjudice against blacks. When I was little I remember asking Santa for a black baby doll, and getting her. I was SO in love with her, but very upset and defensive when my Aunt teased me about having a "n------ baby". I indignantly told her she was black and beautiful. I still have that doll and am still drawn to these beautifully dark dolls and  beautiful dark people. I may be politically incorrect and I'm sorry. I lived in Okinawa Japan and was at a flea market on a US military base. Amother and her two little girls were at my booth and I overheard one of the little girls tell her mom how she was being picked on and told she was ugly and stupid because she was black. I went over to that little girl and told her to ALWAYS be proud of her color and herself and never to be mean like that little girl was. I also told her "BACK IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!". I am ashamed of my ancestors being a slave holder and especially how mean she was to the slaves, and tho I can never change the past, I am trying to change the future with what I teach my children. They are adults now and so far so good. So I am thrilled to see how far we have come and I know we still have more to learn and change. Also, go to this web site... http://www.thegrio.com/black-history/ to learn what's going on today and check out these amazing accomplishments.
