I just KNOW you all had a Wonderful Wednesday ... the days are rippin' by, and I am having a hard time trying to keep up !! Always something to do, and places to go, ooohhh, and than there is work to go to .. I almost forgot that :):) I did want all you So.. Cali.. girlies to know, that the Miss Rebecca at " a gathering of thoughts" has now got her sweet keepsake cookie cards at a sweet boutique near you .. These are in the store as of today, at "Tea Leaf Cottage" in Olde Towne Orange .. It is located at 141 N. Glassell Orange California 714-771-7752, Joan Alford is the owner, if you need to speak with her .. She is a wonderful, sweet, very helpful lady .. You have to look at these. For those of you that follow Rebecca, will remember her sharing these with us, and letting us know they would be for sale soon. I am soo excited !! She has them in three different designs right now, the gingerbread man, heart, and Christmas tree. I would of loved to have shown you all three designs. But, Joan took them all.. I'm sad, I only have the one to share. They are soo sweet, and cottage perfect. Inside each, is two flavorful recipes, and on the back a timely sentiment, sure to touch the heart. They are lovely, and of course Rebecca's original artwork showcases' each one of these. The detail amazing. I sure hope any of you down this way can check these out !!

    Doesn't Rebecca do beautiful work? I love everything she does. I would love to make it out to California some time to visit and see some of your fabulous shops there!!

    Love, Barb ♥

  9. These are wonderful!! I am so happy and excited for Rebecca :) The keepsake cards and cookie cutters are just the sweetest idea!!

  10. Hello Tanza! This is actually my first visit to your blog...I can't believe it?! Your blog is beautiful and you have wonderful pictures. As I scrolled down I read about your beloved Marci passing on. My heart goes out to you. We had our first baby, Charlie pass at 13+ years. He was a beautiful black lab 1/4 springer. I remember much like you thinking I could hear him walk or see him around the corner. Every time that happened it would hit me that he was gone. I hope you are feeling better : )
    Did you get my reply about the jars? I emailed you but did not hear back from you, so I was just wondering. You can e-mail me back if you changed your mind : ) Also if you ever wanted a portrait done of your sweet puppy, I have done many for other people. I feel it is God's gift for me to do that for others. It really is a special treasure to have that momento of rememberance. You have wonderful faith and a big heart, I can tell by your writing : ) Have a wonderful and blessed weekend and I will talk to you soon!

    Hugs ~ Nichole

  11. How did I miss this POST you made about you BRAGGING about MEMMEMEMEMMEMEME??????

    Tee Hee! are something else!

    I know we chatted today and now I'm sooo excited that two stores in Southern Cali are going to carry my pretty cards. Whooo Hooo!

    Isn't God good? He makes all our dreams come true.

    Love to you...I miss you so much!


  12. Hi Tanza -

    Great post about girlfriends - they're so valuable, and these days life long buds are really rare.

    Love Rebeccas cookie cutters - I want one too.


  13. Oh how I wish Orange was close to me. My daughter and I spent the day there when we took the little guy to Disneyland about four years ago. What wonderful shopping! Isn't there a panel truck there with oranges painted on the side...?? Orange Antique Mall or something? How lucky you are to have such GORGEOUS places to shop.


    PS....I can see why Rebecca loves you so much. What an enthusiastic encourager you are. :-)

  14. My Rebecca cookie cutters arrived a couple weeks ago..these are just the Perfect Pink Gift. Will be keeping one set for myself and gifting the remaining ones out. Course I will have to check my "naughty & nice" list.

    This is truely a creation from Reb's "HEART" from the packaging, artwork, poetry. Her idea was so well conceived from start to finish. No Pink Peep is going to happy without owning these...

    I really love your BLOG give me great now I am hooked on Lefton Bluebirdies..LOL !! They looked so sweet sitting among your treasures that I had to start a collection for my granddaughter.

    Have a good weekend
    Blessings from Texas
