Blessed Bees and Blessed Me

Pink Zinnia Blessed Bee...

Orange Zinnia Blessed Bee...

Tuxedo Cat in catnip heaven...

And my very own blessing this week too, when I heard I'd won fellow blogger Maria-Therese's giveaway, and soon after, a package arrived all the way from Sweden!

Could this notebook be any more perfect for a tea lover who keeps notebooks filled with artsy inspiration? Thank you again, Maria-Therese!! (DO stop by her blog - it's a feast for the eyes!)

I'm so filled with gratitude this week; for honeybees, for purring cats, for tea and art, for family and friends.

And also for the wonderful guy I've spent the last thirty years with. We've had our share of challenges, and are facing more this week as he begins his cancer treatments. But challenges are made to be overcome, and overcome them I know we will. Many thanks to those who've been keeping us in thoughts and prayers, and incredible gratitude to those who support and encourage my artful endeavors.

I'm truly blessed. :)
