WITH LOVE FROM ME TO YOU

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

I owe thanks to all of you. Let's begin with darling Michele who blogs at Angels Bark, and sells her beautiful jewelry at AccentGemDesigns.com. I should have brought up Michele's jewelry sooner because you might need a Valentine's Day gift for yourself or someone else.

I thank Michele for this necklace, which she sent to me for Christmas:



It's a beautiful shade of blue, with a lovely sterling silver chain. People comment on it every time I wear it.

Then I received this gift from my blog child, Rachel, who blogs at When a Lion Sleeps, Let It Sleep:


She asked me my favorite color (pink), and my favorite scent (vanilla). Then she sent this baby pink three-votive candle holder, and candles in the following scents: vanilla cupcake (3), French vanilla (3), and lavender vanilla (3). Oi! Do they smell luscious.

Willy Dunne Wooters wanted to take this photo of my hand next to the holder because I wore what he calls my pink mittens, and I have on pink nail polish:


Thank you, much-loved Rachel!

Now I thank all of you who have prayed for Sam's return, or have had even a fleeting hope that he's safe. Sam has been gone for a week. Carol and David have seen no sign of their elderly, blind dog:


God bless you, Sam. You are loved.

Franklin and Penelope are here to keep me company as I work:

Penelope is a gentle soul, who worries about Sam.

Franklin sits next to me, and leans over for a kiss.




Infinities of love and prayers and thanks,

Janie Junebug

  1. Hi Janie,

    What lovely, thoughtful gifts. Penny and myself sure do hope that Sam can be found. What a terrible time for all concerned.

    Franklin and Penelope, the very epitome of loving dogs and cherished family members.

    Take good care and I most certainly don't have "my knickers in a twist!" :)

    I'm outta' here.....

    1. You can't smell the candles? What's wrong with you?

  3. Thank Willie for the pictures, and F&P for the love. I made my friend Linda a pair of fingerless wool gloves years ago, as a joke as much as anything, and she wears them all winter, ever since. I like you pink ones better.

    1. Mine are cashmere and cost more than I would pay. I love them because I can tap on the phone easily and show off my pretty nails. Franklin and Penelope say, Yer welcom. Willy Dunne Wooters says nothing because he's at home, which is not my home.

    1. I feel the same way about Sam. I'm trying to force myself to get back into life, but it's difficult. I think of him constantly.
