Sunday Sentiments


Yesterday I met with friends for brunch. When you live so far away from "home", your friends become your family. "In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures."
-- Khalil Gibran

"Wishing to be friends is quick work, but friendship is a slow-ripening fruit."
-- Aristotle (4th century B.C.)~

Elena is lucky to have a beautiful lemon tree right outside her front door.
My dear friend Melissa (sitting next to me in the photo above) surprised me with a gift. There was a time when this girl was not so crafty.




Thanks Melissa! Who doesn't love candles, especially when they are environmentally- friendly.
"Let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit."
-- Khalil Gibran.

"We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another." ~Luciano de Crescenzo
I am thankful for the many blessings of friendship. Best wishes to you all! Tammy

Hey Tammy,

I'm sooooo happy that I'm on your blog....yipee! If the first quote you have is true, then you have a whole cornfield of friends. It's because of you and Renee..SHOUTOUT to you sweetie:)...that I have been so inspired to be creative and personalize my gifts. So I am thankful for crafty friends.

You and your friends are absolutely the cutest group Tammy! I cherish time spent with my friends and it certainly does not happen enough. I couldn't leave a comment on your last post cause sometimes my computer freezes when I visit your site, but I wanted to tell you how much I love your moss roses. Those are some of my favorite blooms ever.
I'll be thinking of you while reading my British mags. We love the same ones!
Hugs,
June

Dear Tammy I love Kahil Gibran. What a nice group of friends. Thanks for stopping by. What a nice gesture to send to your aunt. I am going to make some more Hen Party plaques after Christmas, I have to get all my painted Christmas gifts finished first. I love visiting with you. Blessings.

Wonderful post. Like the quotes you have throughout.

Friends are indeed a blessing and are sometimes more family, than family.
