:You've Got A Friend

This post is dedicated to all my wonderful friends, bloggers and otherwise, who have shared the gift of friendship with me this year. Sometimes an act of kindness or gift, a sharing of a burden, or just the willingness to listen without judgement. In many different ways I've been blessed by friendship and often from unexpected sources. So if you're ever feeling a little low, always remember ...

You've Got A Friend

Thank you EVERYONE... 
For your friendship and kindness this year. You've been the unexpected gift of 2010

Hi Julie,
Thanks for visiting my newbie blog.
Yes, sometimes the most amazing ideas are
the simplest! My imagination goes on over
drive when I see the talent on etsy.com
Just makes you want to create something
special for someone special;)
Happy big new year!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Julie dearest! Oh, your kind and wonderful comments just made my morning!!!! Well dearest one, it has truly been a fine two years of blogging for me, and really a dream come true. I love unearthing treasures of all sorts, but the most valuable is finding friends ALL OVER THE WORLD....since I was a kid, I loved knowing that there was SOMEONE out there, in a far away land, that I could share things with. And with this marvelous mode of communication and creativity, we all have found at least a HANDFUL of people that we can do that with....thank you for all the beauty that YOU give us all through your gift of capturing the light of the images of daily life. Many happy day off 2011 to you! And that doll....oh yeah...she is most definitely a vintage French fille.....I must look for one the next time I go to France in hopefully, 2012!!!


rjerdee said...

O, Julie, my dear, you are indeed a friend and every time I see your name on a comment that comes rolling through from the other side of the world, I get a happy thrill. You always have something kind and constructive to say, something to lift me up...
I'm looking forward to more of your gorgeous posts in 2011--but this 2010 post is the sweetest ever.
Hugs from sunny Florida,
