thank you...and a happier note...

I just have to say thank you so much to everyone that left me comments and emails about my post last night. I wanted to write so much more but it was hard to even write what I did. Maybe another day. But your thoughts were really comforting!
On a happier note. I wanted to share how I spent my Mother's Day yesterday. I really wasn't thinking much about what I wanted to do. I actually wanted to have brunch at my house but it didn't work out. When my husband asked me if there was anything special I wanted to do, at that moment I said, "I want to go into Manhattan and spend the day going to flea markets." And so we did! I can never get tired of going into the city. My husband and I both always worked in the city and always stayed in on the weekends. Since I started popping out babies, we weren't able to go in as much as we would like. Now they are older and they love it as much as we do.
One store I had never been to and I have no idea why is Shabby Chic. I felt like I was in heaven...just beautiful! When I realized I couldn't afford the $8000 sofa I liked, I knew I would be just as happy with a new cushion for my desk chair and a cute little mercury glass votive holder to add to my collection. At one of the flea markets I also found this great old white carved wood frame to add to my "frame with no photos" collection...drives my husband nuts!



After shopping we went to City Crab and had a seafood feast. I had a lovely day!
I've also got some inquires about more stickers. I finally just listed some more in my shop and will try to keep them coming!
